Re: NMB Hi-Tek 111262

Hey, nice! Finally somebody actually tried to convert the thing instead of desoldering the switches to use for repair on other boards or never bothered to convert the thing. Welcome to the Space Invaders gang! :D

Re: Alps Appreciation

I got an AEK (M0115) from ebay and the rotated f-row switches have these funky top housings: https://i.imgur.com/OgZFAO5.jpg I feel like I've seen a photo of these before, but I can't find it.

Topre boards often have really low polling rates... if you play rhythm games like osu! you really won't be able to play with it, sadly.

Re: More durable switches?

Cherry switches are quite resistant to dust as far as I'm concerned. There's probably some other switches out there that also deal with dust,but I can't bring it up the top of my head

Re: M0110 Revival

Interesting! I have another project in stock at the moment and I've been somewhat struggling to find the R2 1u \ key, at least for GMK caps anyway. I don't think something like DSA would fit the board too well, but you might also be having the same issue as me for the \ key, just a heads up. :)

I managed to get a pretty decent board with these switches in, albeit it's very dirty and will need serious cleaning. One thing, though, is that 3 of the switches have broken stems. I would like to get some to replace them so I can have a complete build, which would be pretty cool. Cross-mount versi...

Super Glue works decently well with ABS and that's what I've used in mine. I'm not sure if it would work as well for you because there isn't a lot of surfaces in your part, but give it a try.

You might be able to purchase a 7u spacebar from Matias. Send them an email to ask.
I've just contacted Matias, and they do indeed sell individual caps if you contact them directly! (At least for the spacebar.)

They are so nice! Extremely smooth, a nice sound to boot because of the stem. Feels very comfortable to type on too because of the light progressive springs. They're awesome.
