"4th" Mounting Method

There is a new "4th" mounting method for the Derivative R1 Keyboard! Injection-moulded silicone gaskets that can be used together with toe relief-mount. These are small rubber gaskets that slot into the *bottom* case, sitting beneath the plate's relief-mount arms and using the screw cuts to align the plate. While it isn't revolutionary or mind-blowing, I think it makes a few key differences.

  1. Reduces vibration and feedback when typing with "leaf-spring" and relief-mount
  2. Plate is no longer fixed to the top case
  3. There may be some downward compression i.e. 'traditional' gasket compression, while still having the relief-mount plate flexibility
  4. While there will be more movement in the gasket versus screwing to the top case, it also effectively shortens the 'relief arms'
