Description

This is a preorder, first PCBs are expected to ship in 4-5 weeks !

All orders will be shipped from Netherlands – EU

 

Kolumns PCB:

  • Please read the installation advice and Keyboard compatibility !
  • The Kolumns PCB is a custom-designed PCB made to enable quicker and cleaner Dactyl keyboard building
  • Originally made for Dactyl Manuform Mini, it’s also mostly compatible with the other Dactyls – check the notes under
  • Uses standard 1n4148 diodes, through-hole or SMD (1206 format)
  • 6 columns, 4 rows, plus two bottom added keys for Dactyl Manuforms
  • Breakable down to 5 columns, 3 rows if you want a smaller keyboard
  • A lot of soldering pads for the rows and columns, for easier DIY

 

Keyboard compatibility:

  • Our Bastyl keyboard has guaranteed 100% compatibility
  • Dactyl Manuform: up to 6 columns, 5 rows (incl. partial row). The thumb cluster is compatible with the Mini version only
  • Dactyl: up to 4 columns, 4 rows. The thumb cluster is not compatible. The outer 2 columns are not compatible, you will need to use amoebas or cut the PCB.
  • Other Dactyl versions: as long as they use the original plate and switch distance as the Dactyl Manuform, should be fine (not guaranteed). Contact us for further inquiry

 

What’s included:

  • 2 PCBs for the columns
  • 2 PCBs for the Dactyl Manuform Mini thumb cluster

 

Installation advice:

  • Start by soldering all the diodes and cables needed in the main PCB and thumb cluster if you’re using it
  • Then, install the PCB in the case
  • Start inserting and soldering the top row switches
  • You might have to bend some columns – this is perfectly normal, the PCB can handle it, and stays very tight in the case this way – no glue required
  • Then, insert and solder the bottom row switches
  • Once this is done, the PCB will hold itself into place
  • You can then solder the rest of the switches
