PCBs on their way

A project log for 1:3 Scale VT100 with working keyboard

I've made many retrocomputer miniatures but this is the most complex.

PCBWay is sponsoring a round of PCBs for the 1:3 scale VT100 keyboard! 🎉

Their assembly engineer (who didn't know about the sponsorship) gave me advice about the design and component choice which is a level of service that I haven't received from other fab houses. The order is in so we'll see how they look in a week.

In the meantime I'll to make a handful of switch parts so that when the boards arrive I can validate the entire assembly and code before making a bigger board order.
