Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYSWITCH thread

Hi there.
What is this? I can seem to be able to identify it here: wiki/Switch_recognition
The dude says it's linear.

Re: Picture request - Pine SKCM Black gutts

Sorry but I don't care about SKBM. XD So yes, definietly SKCM. Binding can't be caused by the tactile leaves, or can it? I only bought the two SKBM boards because they were factory USB/ANSI and will take other Alps switches directly. More projects that I'll never get around to probably. I don't kno...

Re: Picture request - Pine SKCM Black gutts

Sure. I'll upload them to the wiki as well if you're ok with it. The SKBM's color looks like as if it was lubed but that's actually not the case i guess xD The lubed switches look like this IRL as this SKBM slider looks on this pic. I don't think that'd be the case since my late pine ivories are not...

If it is a film that covers the entirety of the slider - it was lube.

Re: Picture request - Pine SKCM Black gutts

it looks suspiciously like Salmon tactile leaves, and doesn't look like the later black ones. Can you please tell me if it has lubricant on the slider? It Judging by the color, it has. You can wipe it away a bit of with a finger. make sure not to wipe it on the side rails. Even the oranges have hole...

Re: Picture request - Pine SKCM Black gutts

I can get these pictures for you in a bit - but I can tell you for certain that the tactile leaf is not the same as in Salmon/Ivory - there's no hole. They look functionally identical to those in SKCM Cream but the spring weight is heavier. My current thought is that Black is to Cream as Salmon is ...

Picture request - Pine SKCM Black gutts

Hi there I need some picture to make understanding the Alps timeline a bit more. The wiki is also a bit weak regarding SKCM Blacks, especially the pine variety. What pics do I need? A picture of an early pine Black switch, specifically the tactile leaf, from multiple angles. I want to compare them w...

Re: I would like to try Alps

The rollover is worse on my M0118 than on my AEK II. I did not find anything nasty about the AEK II so far, but the M0118 was disappointingly bad rolloverwise.

Re: I would like to try Alps

Yeah you can't go wrong with a cheap apple board (specifically an AEK II) and a 10$ teensy 2.0, but the AT101(w) is a good option too. Tho, the apple boards have a way better keycap set, and the ADB to USB converter is very well programable, and you can do some very sweet stuff with that.

Re: Alps Lubricant FOUND!

Removing the factory lubricant from SKCM switches immediately makes them awful. The lube is there for a reason. Except of course, if you are suggesting that the brilliant ALPS engineers, after they have designed one of the best switches of all time , were incompetent and stupid enough to pay more a...

Definitely cool. Does this keyboard have a plastic mounting plate and 5-Pin DIN?
Yes.
And judging by the locklights, it's made by Ortek.

I'm pretty sure I have found lube on OA2 Clones as well. Same kind of deal, as I found on my SKCM Ivory.
