Re: Are there two types of undamped Cream ALPS?

There are two kinds of undampened creams: switches with 2-tab tactile leaves and switches with 4-tab tactile leaves. Here's a pic I took of the different types: https://i.ibb.co/1Tgzcqx/photo-2019-06-24-09-31-45.jpg https://i.ibb.co/NK3t1gj/photo-2019-06-24-09-31-49.jpg I found the 2-tab switches in...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Feels like I have seen this Focus 727 with Blue Alps appearing on Ebay many times within few months from the same seller in Ireland. And maybe the seller has just had many of these, but few times I have bid on his/her Blue Alps board, then it gets relisted for much higher price, disappers, gets rel...

Re: Alps Appreciation

Re: Alps Appreciation

Ironically, cleaning it might have caused it - you gave the leaf more wiggle room, as it were. If it really bothers you try switching the click leaf with switches you rarely use - like scroll lock or something. I don’t recommend paper mod as that will dampen click on the downstroke as well.

Re: Alps Appreciation

I can see how upstroke click would be annoying on a tactile board since those aren’t supposed to click. But what’s so bad about a clicky switch clicking on an upstroke? In my experience most clicky alps have a faint click on their upstroke. When the slider comes back up it has to clear the click lea...

yup - definitely this.

On the other hand, do you even want the topre board? Won't it forever be associated with working for a petty, vindictive, egotistical, and incompetent boss?

Those are genuine blue alps! You can tell because of the long retention tabs on the side of the switch. That's a very cool board! Color me jealous.

You mean that you will trade it for one of the boards listed, right? The way you worded it sounds like the conditional statement: If you picked up any of these keyboards, then I will send you this 727 for free.
