This switch is just funny. The peak force is just over 400 gf :lol:

I didn't think you'd risk putting anything that heavy through the machine.

Haha, the force gauge is safe up to 600 gf (and is critical around 1200 gf). So I wasn't super worried with this one, lol.

Ah, but possibly still not enough to deal with double action. Alps cite 500 gf for stage two of their double-action switch, which is actually way heavier than the peak force of that Tai-Hao switch — I don't know what the peak force of that is.

I do have some force sensors that have a higher rating (not as precise though). The calibration takes quite a while so I'll probably need to hold off on that for the time being.
