Re: Alps Lubricant FOUND!

Hey guys, I'd like to ask you to test theese lubes on SKCM Whites as well. They are widely available, tho quite of them are suboptimal. I think we'd all benefit from knowing what'd happen if you lube them with theese crazy expensive greases/oils.

You are absolutelly right. You literally wrote down my absolute first idea that was: -A recreation of SKCM Lime green tactile switches - since they are so rare.

Re: ReSKCM - Optical rework, and cloning of Alps SKCM/SKCL switches

Since you're on a budget, like most of us, I'd suggest finding an early white Alps keyboard instead of blue Alps. The early white switches are very similar to blues, perhaps even the same internally, and with a bit of luck and patience you can pick up a nice one for a much cheaper price. Look for s...

Re: ReSKCM - Optical rework, and cloning of Alps SKCM/SKCL switches

No... Haven't tried it. Since I can't get hold of any. But, I have tried SKBM clones, and I genuinely thought that they were tactiles. And I keep hearing that Mathias is disappointing. Anyway, I'll try creating some optoelectric stuff for any alps switch. That will probably be more interesting than ...

And I have to buy a few switches, even if they are just loose. Specifically blue alps and Mathias switches.
