Hello all,

The objective of this post is show as make a keyboard without a numpad from a conventional and complete computer keyboard. The original post was written in Brazilian Portuguese and is at http://eriberto.pro.br/blog/?p=1050 [2]. Though the post is in pt_BR, has several images showing all process. So you can understand the pictures and make your keyboard too!

We will strip the numpad using a hacksaw. You will need a keyboard with the control and the leds out of the area will be cutted off. A great example are the Dell keyboards, as can be viewed in the image bellow (click to enlarge). However, we have thousand of similar keyboards in the world.
