My Thoughts

This Tofu will always have a special place in my heart since it’s my first build. I have a Klippe case to swap out for the Tofu, but I can’t bring myself to do it.

The Signature Plastics keycaps are the best I’ve ever seen or felt. There is just nothing else like them.

I am going to redo the stabilizers. Having built 9 builds after this one, I’ve realized the holee mod is overkill on Durock V2 stabilizers. My current build methodology is to only holee mod the spacebar stabilizers if using Durock or equivalent stabilizers.
