USB Cherry MX Numpad

Almost a year ago, I bought my first mechanical keyboard. It's a Filco Ninja Majestouch-2 Tenkeyless (with Cherry MX Brown switches). It's an absolutely amazing keyboard to type on and is built like a tank, well worth the admittedly shocking price. However, the "tenkeyless" in the name means that it does not have a numpad. The keyboard is available with a numpad aswell, but the reason why I did not want one is that I am left-handed, and much prefer the numpad to be on the left side of the keyboard. A normal numpad would be almost useless for me.

Another reason why I got the tenkeyless version was this: not having a numpad also gave me an excuse to build my own! It's taken a year, but I finally managed to get around to doing it. That is what this post is all about.
