You can check geekhack and ebay too though. A lot of people, myself included, started by buying really cheap mechanical keyboards with the switch types I wanted to try. What's nice about doing it is that you can always resell any boards you get for the same price you paid for them, in case you don't want to keep any. A lot of those old ones have funky layouts but since this would be a "switch finding mission" that shouldn't matter.
