From Melbourne-based design studio Rama Works, the M10-B is an updated version of the M10-A: a fully programmable 10-key mini pad made from a block of solid aluminum. This time around, Rama Works teamed with Wilba (who designed the Zeal60, Planck, and Preonic PCBs) to bring this one-of-a-kind tool to life. Now simpler, sturdier, and compatible with all major operating systems, the Rama Works M10-B allows users to easily program each button with macros and hotkeys.
Note: At checkout, choose a CNC aluminum case in black, midnight blue, silver, or space gray. You can also add a set of Cherry MX, Gateron, Kailh, Halo, or Zealios switches. Pricing for switches will vary. If you don't want keycaps, you can remove them for (- $20).
With clean lines, smooth angles, and a polished finish, The Rama Works M10-B mechanical mini pad wouldn’t look out of place in a NASA lab. Milled from a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum, the hefty mini pad weighs nearly 14 ounces, so it won’t slide around your desk. This time, the switch plate is built in, which creates even more stability. Each bevel, especially the diagonal ones, requires extensive CNC work.
Whether you want to use the Rama Works M10-B for gaming, data entry, or other tasks, it’s equipped to handle it all. Fully programmable, it’s built for QMK, which means you can assign any button to any task via the firmware. The PCB has built-in Kailh switch sockets, too. That means you can quickly and easily change switches if you want to try out a different feel. Perhaps best of all, there’s no soldering required: Just pop in the switches, screw the case together, and your ready to go.
The Rama Works M10-B is designed to make your life easier. Use it to quickly program hotkeys and macros in your favorite games for quicker access to your most-used weapons, spells, commands, and more. Developers can link a line of code they frequently use to a certain button—far quicker than typing it in every single time. The same goes for those in the business world. Use the M10-B to program your email signoff or your full address and avoid having to type it out every time. For the creative professional, the M10-B can be used to quickly select tools in editing programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, or Premiere.
Because of the hot-swappable PCB, switches can be installed without soldering. And this drop features a wide range of switches (not included) so you can get just the feel you want. First, there are authentic Cherry MX Blue, Brown, Clear, Green, and Red switches—as well as Gaterons in all the same colors. Then, there are Kailh Speed Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, Box White, Red, Black, and Brown switches, plus Halo Trues and Clears. For a heavier feel, there are Zealios 65-gram tactile (non-clicky) switches. If you really want to shake things up, go for the Tester Pack, which includes a variety of Cherry and Kailh switches so you can try out something new.
