This question is related to Desk keyboard only by the keyswitches used by Deck, otherwise there's no relation. Just kind of a warning.

Is there a wiring diagram or some such somewhere that tells you which mx keyswitch pins to solder to what? I *think* I've puzzled out which pin is common ground, there's 2 pins that get connected and then there's two that act as the actual keyswitch...but I'm not 100% sure I've got it right.

Anyone have pointers to such information? I'm working with cherry mx keyswitches with diodes, no leds.

As something related to Deck keyboards - I'm surprised the 21 key decks were not that popular. A decent gaming only keypad seems like the perfect solution for gamers, but oh well. Maybe I can find one on eBay. :-)

Cherry MX page is here. They don't seem to show an electrical pinout which is a little odd, but looking at the mount options in the circuit board layout section you can figure out which set of pins belong to what.
