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...

wow they really did clean up nicely. And the text document is a sign
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...

oh wow! That mouse looks amazing! but what if my hand is a bit smudgy? It won't look that great after 2 months of use, unless you're a clean-o-phile. The surface is matte so nothing will stick to the surface, what I've found is that dead skin sticks to the side due to me rubbing my fingers across t...
BTW, there have been a short discussion somewhere of the possibility of combining DSS and SA profiles, using a different profile for different rows. I dunno if that is feasible or if the features and finishes would be too different. that would be interesting :D DSS comes only in matte top, semi-mat...

exceptionally good job. When I saw your post on GH I immediately bookmarked it. I'm been intrested in using a halfplate for one of my builds. Do you think not using leds will make the alignment much harder? And do you know what ptfe powder you were using? I'm always looking for a new lube to try. D...

63/37 Leaded solder 0.6mm width with RMA core Adjustable temperature on a soldering iron, preferable with different tips to suit your needs. A good quality solder sucker (don't skimp out). With wave soldered boards I usually go over all the legs and retin them with 63/37 so it makes it easier to rem...

Both keyboards are seriously yellowed -- caps and cases. At least the T9103 is evenly yellowed. I might try some variant of retrobrite treatment for the cases along with replacing keycaps. Other alternatives including painting the cases when warm weather arrives. I've also wanted to try cerakote --...
Seems like plain old Yellow Alps to me. I believe some of them can come without the LED cutout. If that is from the taobao guy that sells alps I think someone bought them and they were clones. I might be mistaken tho. Know if they are clicky, tactile or linear? I might be wrong, you should pm Drcli...
Here is another little treat for you! It's an offbrand Strong Man kids keyboard with the same FCC number! https://i.imgur.com/ssSmS2J.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6dIwcEZ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/IdSRc70.jpg https://i.imgur.com/4kAjMOB.jpg https://i.imgur.com/yX0iAX1.jpg https://i.imgur.com/DO5GTye.jpg

Ultrasonic cleaned this alps board. There was 0 dust when it arrived but the switches still are rather scratchy. I really like this case so I will probably retrobright the case and make a custom plate/pcb with some leftover switches if I get around to it. One thing that is rather bad about the layou...
