Re: G80-3000 PCB, Vintage mx switches/board

If a replica PCB is an option, you can order this G80-3000 Chili through a proxy https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=565823984744. I just bought two. Fully programmable, you only need to solder switches and leds. I've been contemplating buying it. The only thing that worries me is the mounting poin...

I've mentioned it several times before, but nobody seems to pick up on it xD . I've found lube on switches as late as bamboo blacks xD .

Re: Dumb question of the day: Are there any WS2801 leds small enough to fit inside linear Alps switches?

1204 / 1206 / 0603 SMD led diodes will fit. You can drive them with something like the WS2801 to make them adressable. if you want a pre-package adressable RGB led driver, the only package that should work is the 3528/6028 were you could have cutouts of the pcb to fit on the underside atleast what I...

Re: Stuff you just bought

I purchased an inexpensive photography lighting kit a few months back. But I'm clumsy and broke two of bulbs that it came with. I was tickled at how hilariously huge the replacement bulbs were in comparison. Hope these serve me well as I document my keyboard escapades! https://i.imgur.com/TqN410E.j...

A dirty board usually go for 200~ so that would be a decent price for the condition. Or import from Asia.
