Re: [GB] NOS Alps SKCM White

Great switches, no question, tons of thanks to lsoelxi for doing this GB! They are really good but not *that* good, not blue-alps-good :) They're not first gen whites, the clicky leaf is more abrupt (straight angles, not rounded) and the plastic materials are different and also thinner. Those thick ...

Re: '93 Alps Switch Catalog

A few weeks ago, I found an electronics store that had been supplying Alps swtich for a long time. I was able to find a large amount of Alps SKCM White. I sold the switch without margin to supply Alps White to many people. I’m certain that everyone here is super grateful for what you’re doing for t...

Re: [IC] NOS Alps SKCM White, Futaba MA41

Any patterns/apparent problems on the sliders or with the switches in general. E.g. the recent skcl yellows got those strange patterns on the slider and are therefore not very smooth.
Anyway, +256 SKCM, thanks!

Incredible effort! Posting any video soon? I'm so curios of the differences you mention... maybe you could try explaining in a short video? Thanks!

Making SKCM Blues is impossible. We need serious stuff to determine how are the switches made. Anyway, I made the survey.This is only a test version (typos and anything else), but I'm just qrious what we'll see. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1ogwHouiWN5dKHD27FXRc_YYr8UdvepDDbSGL1Tp-DL0 You'll get...

I'd certainly spend all of my hobby budget on a brand new Alps kickstarter/group buy. Let's just do it! THIS! Philosophers are and will be everywhere, and, if you listen to their reasoning, the only switch whose existence makes sense now is the rubber dome. Until the next cost-cutting invention, wh...

I wonder if we could make a Kickstarter campaign to raise for new tactile leaves like in Lyme green Alps. Make a video with Linus or something. Do tactile and click leaves from for example an SKCM Blue work in a Mathias switch? I'm in... for any SKCM/SKCL-related initiative, actually :) As for Mati...

I guess you wouldn't sell it, since it's one of your favourites?

NMB RT 102

Wondering if anybody here got a black clicky kind of space invaders in great shape and with a big backspace. I think they're called NMB RT 102 (ISO), but maybe there are other brands.

Let me know, thank you!

Some initiative like reviving Alps designs would take you out of this state... Just please don't put your boards on ebay, I'm a ping away :)

Has anyone ever tried to take Matias click leafs and bend them similarly to blue-alps leafs? Well, you could just use a blue alps leaf, but that's not the point :) I've played a bit with this until my eyes hurt and then also minimized the second tactile event and... the result is great. If only I co...

Scratchiness of switches confirmed and everything I understand you can still mod them to great linears (do a search on this forum for black alps modding). That and other mods I'm gonna do for sure - that's why I was glad Balotz had enough of them. Actually, have already started to do the linear, fe...
