At the request of Chyros, the next switch to measure is the USw LARB01.
(again, thanks Daniel Beardsmore, this one is also really interesting :mrgreen: ).

It's strange because anything with zero preload should be really wobbly, but I don't recall these having a wobbly slider.

So maybe that rules out the idea that preload stops the slider from wobbling up and down from lack of spring compression.

That curve goes so close to zero, that you'd think that if there was even a speck of dust inside, the slider would simply stop part-way through the return stroke.

I do have some switches that fail to return; one is CL-1145, which I did include. (I realise now that I also forgot vintage APC green, which is not a model that Tai-Hao still remember.)

I wonder if CL-1145 also comes so close to 0 gf that this is why it's able to get stuck the way it does. Those are used switches, while LARB01 is all new/NOS.
