The Practice65 is a keyboard kit that contains almost everything you need to build your own keyboard from scratch - just add switches, stabilizers, and keycaps, and you'll be good to go! It's meant to be a great starting point for anyone to learn to solder or put their first keyboard together.
The Practice65 supports RGB underglow, per-key LED backlighting with south facing LEDs, and is powered by an STM32 onboard microcontroller running QMK with VIA compatibility out of the box.
The new v2 Practice65 is the first of our revised practice kits. The PCB included is the same as the one included with the Savage65 - all you need to solder now are your switches. And if you ever want to upgrade, the plate/PCB assembly is compatible with our Stacked65, without any desoldering necessary!
Each kit comes with:
- 1 Savage65 PCB
- 1 Practice65 FR4 Plate
- 1 Practice65 FR4 Bottom
- 12 M3 screws, 6 12mm M3 standoffs
You will need a soldering iron, solder, and M2.5 Hex Head Screwdriver to assemble this kit.
You will also need to purchase:
- Up to 68 switches
- Be sure to purchase a keycap set with a 1.75U Right Shift Key
- Stabilizers - up to 3x2U and a 6.25U or 7U
- Left Shift, Enter, and Backspace all need a 2U stabilizer.
- The spacebar will need a 6.25U or 7U stabilizer depending on your selected layout
