The case and the switches are fine but the switches are the wrong mount. The Kalih caps don't use the MX mount like the switches do.
I see. I will take a look at other sets. Thanks.

Will this combo work?

I'm looking to make my first custom board, but I'm afraid I'll miss something and find myself with incompatible parts.
I'd like to put together this combo:

Case: GMMK
Switches: Purple Zealios V2 62g
Keycaps: Kalih Low Profile Keycaps

Guys what about Aliaz switches? They are a lubricated variant of Gateron Silent Brown, which is a silenced clone of Cherry MX Brown. Very low tactility, and the tactile bump is in the middle, which you might want to avoid if you are going to reduce key travel. I see. Well I am officially more lost ...

Nope this is the actual price for 110 switches:

Keyboard recommendations based on a few preferences?

Hey guys, I'm looking to build a custom keyboard or to get an existing one, based on a few of the parameters. As far as the switches go: - Short Key Travel - Light to Medium actuaction force - High tactility - Silent or Deep/Bassy sounding or simply put nothing that is high pitched As far as the key...

Back in the day an S-Video cable made a convenient substitute for an ADB cable. Same pinout and connection. An S-Video cable? Ha! I knew I would need one, once in my lifetime!

Hey guys, I've bought an Apple Adjustable Keyboard (with ALPS SKFS switches) in a mint condition at a local flea market for 2$. An awesome find yes... but it came without the apple's ADB cable. Now I've tried to find the appropriate one, but I don't know what exactly do I need? Also is there some so...

If you mean the lower price for the AT and the higher price for the 107, then that is probably about right.
I see.

Thanks!

How much should I pay for a IBM Model F?

Hi guys, I've found a guy who is dealing with vintage keyboards, and contacted him. We've spoken about Model F keyboards, and I've told him I'm looking for a Model F AT or more preferably a 4704 107. He told me he could find them, and that he usually sells them for ~150-350€ depending on their condi...

Beats me... Might as well use that money to get myself a Model F that I've been dreaming of so much for so long.
I will try and not spend more than 20$ on a scissor switch keyboard :)

I've heard good things about those low-profile Logitech boards with the round buttons. I don't know their model name. Not a fan of low-travel boards boards myself, so I'm not an expert myself :) .

It is very low profile and isn't the monstrous price of a BFKB113PBK (which is near $100 USD). If you want something a bit more durable than the C.V. at the cost of the keyboard's keys being ...

Scissor Switch keyboard recommendation?

Hi people. I really like the feeling of typing on my Dell Latitude E5430, and like most laptops today I found out it has Scissor Switches. I like that they are super short travel, stable and require light force to actuate. I would like to buy a full 104 low profile keyboard with Scissor Switches for...

You don't have to be accurate, we won't take your word for it, I am just curious to when we could expect it to happen.
