Kingly Keys Little Foot Build Log pt 1. Or How I Learned to Stop Getting in My Own Way

Don't solder your pro micro before your switches.

Had a nightmare on this one. Done everything in the wrong order. Attached my pro micro before my switches, had to desolder it, destroyed it. Attached my stabilisers, realised my diodes weren't on the intentional way so had to desolder two diodes and flip them over.

The only thing that's gone OK so far is attaching my LEDs to each other but I've probably done something wrong there too.

Diodes flipped. Stabs lubed. 4 of my final 5 Sakurios soldered.

Still, my stabs and a couple of switches are on now. Just waiting for a replacement pro micro and my switches to finish this off. I've learned a tonne on this build but I never want to see another keyboard in my damn life.

I don't really mean that I'm sorry I love you keyboards.
