Re: Alps Appreciation

Nice, I had one of those laser branded k102s too, I really liked the badge but I ended up slaughtering it for it's switches. Also on the note of the current discussion, DrClick can you see if those blue alps fit on regular alps keycaps. I had a Copam 430 which is probably one of the rarest blue alp...

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. :)

Re: So what's new?

There was the Silo switches, Hall Effect and Beamspring MX-mount switch. BOX switches came and went. People got crazy about a switch combo named "Holy Pandas", it got extremely expensive but now there are multiple versions of them. TGR is becoming the new OTD. There was an MX Alps slider called the ...

WTB Fujitsu Magnetic Reed Switches

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...

Do it if you must. But that won't make you "the cooler Abraham". :mrgreen:

Re: Alps Keycap Surgery

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.)

Thanks! :D

Quite a nice set! Too bad about there being no homing keys. How are the Hirose Clears in there?
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.
