I currently look after production at AB Open. I have a background in the arts, environmental conservation and IT support. In my spare time I do a bit of DJing and I like making things.

I am on the waiting list for the PCBs so I'm excited to start on this project. I'm wondering about the "keyboard" pads. Where did you find them?

@AndreasKitzmann ... having said that, these would work too even though they are a slightly higher profile -

@AndreasKitzmann Hi - I found them on a "well known internet auction site". I think I did a search for "M3 10mm knurled thumb screws". Hope that helps.

perhaps using a hi intensity LED running on a low current... would fix the noise and dim problem...?

Very interested on how you made the enclosure- Is there instructions anywhere on how to do this? You mentioned bending the acrylic and laser cutting it, also etching the fonts on the panel- I'd like to see what is used for these steps. Doesn't have to be this project specifically.

@jweaver Hi - if you search for bending acrylic on YouTube you should find some useful tutorials

Hi Dave - Thanks for the answer that a schematic is not available. Is it possible to get a set of the boards as you did?
