NCR-80

keeb

NCR-80 is a reimagination of the classic rebranded Cherry G81-3000 by NCR

I used Durock Shrimp switches for this build, just spring-lubed with Krytox 205g0, and Katha Baybayin keycaps.

I had to be a little bit creative with the keymaps, given I generally use Ctrl, Alt, and Meta keys for keyboard shortcuts. I used Mod-Tap on the home row keys to work around this.

# left side modifiers
MT(MOD_LCTL, KC_S), MT(MOD_LGUI, KC_D), MT(MOD_LALT, KC_F)

# right side modifiers
MT(MOD_RALT, KC_J), MT(MOD_RGUI, KC_K), MT(MOD_RCTL, KC_L)
  • Caps Lock remapped as soft escape (Esc when held, Ctrl when tapped)
  • Vim-style arrow keys
  • Layers for Linux/Win and Mac
  • Home row modifiers e.g. MT(MOD_LCT , KC_A)
