Re: [GB] NOS Alps SKCM White

To the organizer, have you shared this on other forums like Geekhack or mechmarket as well? This could help us clear the 5,000 switch order mark and get everyone a nice price reduction.

Re: Regarding the Cherry G80-2511 and the Kaihl Box switches

Oh, and as for your question, honestly, it might be easiest for you to try to desolder it all, remove the switches, cut the diodes if necessary, and then solder new diodes on the PCB In the correct orientation when you add the Kailh switches. Assuming the PCB allows for you to mount the diodes on th...

Re: BOX switches

I wish people would just stop fucking about with the notches to generate tactility. As I noted in my review of the BOX Royals, they feel good, it's just crazy that they had to resort to a bump THIS big in order to make a notch switch actually feel tactile. And now, as a side effect, they can't keep...

Re: Kailh Switch Series,which one is your favorite?

Wodan, why do you think the switch lineup you so defend is called Cherry MX? The "X" stands for 10. There were previous series and revisions within them, to fit different specs or to improve iteratively on previous designs. Sometimes this isn't for the better, either. Think of Cherry MY. Not an imp...
