Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Alps Blue switches are different story, I lubed one slider but it made the switch worse. It didn't feel as smooth as switches with original lubing. Now ordering some PTFE powder to see if it's any better. Did you know if the Blue Alps switches already have their original lube applied that the new a...

Re: Modern Beamspring? - The Silo Beam Switch

Beamsprings for the REST of us.

Now this is becoming a a proper switch which should gain full support as time progresses.

Sick and tired of seeing $2000-5000USD various keyboard models for sale on Ebay. Just hope this new Beam Spring doesn't follow the very same price guide line as well.

Re: Kailh Switch Series,which one is your favorite?

To sum it up I will give an example: as long as the average joe who buys a gaming keyboard is fine with the plasticy click of an MX Blue switch, maybe because he does not know better, Cherry will keep producing millions of it as their main clicky switch. The Average "Joe" is the quintessential Cher...

Correct.

You already have the original Click leaf inside the switch.

Bend the little bugger a little to make it louder and feel the click, with your fingers ;) .

Cheap and easy for anyone to do.
