Re: [IC] NOS SKCL Green Alps

Are these in keyboards or plate assemblies? What do they look like may I ask?

Re: modernised G80-3000, now in TKL !

I don't like it anymore. It just looks like any $20 Chinese gamer keyboard now.
I really like the old G80 cases because they actually looked like a classic keyboard.

Why can't we have any modern fullsize cheap mech keyboards without any "gamer" or backlit BS?

I don't want to be that guy, but have you seen the zeal clicky switch? it's supposed to be based off of blue alps.
I just saw it, but it has a polycarbonate housing so I don't think it will be the same.

Re: Issues with a Matias Tactile Pro 4 I bought

Matias makes the stems way too tight. The last build I did with them I cracked several new Tai-Hao keycaps trying to pull them off. NOS Alps switches and every other Alps clone I tried don't have this problem. I don't do builds with them anymore, I will be using another clicky Alps clone I found (it...

Wyse 50s are beautiful keyboards! I recently came across this keyboard in a pile I picked up to desolder. I have never seen caps like these on a Wyse before. Connector is a standard terminal jack.

Re: [IC] 104 key Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard

My suggestions (posted on Google form as well) non-backlit version, any black and Durock T1 switches as options, or kit form without keycaps (except spacebar keycaps) or switches, just the chassis and PCB.

Re: Alps Appreciation

The thing is that is I can easily make them feel nice and tactile but I don't know if it's the "correct" tactility. Unless I can have access to a NOS tactile leaf (wondering if it's worth it or if Alps tactiles had this poor tactility out of the box)

Re: Alps Appreciation

I'm frustrated with tactile Alps, every single switch I've tried felt like scratchy linears except for SKCM Brown (presumably from wear) but I have no way to rebend them so they are consistent or even accurate to how they were originally. I did find a plant in China who can make new leaves at a reas...

Re: Alps restoration guide

I've had good luck with "WD-40 Specialist with PTFE"
It leave a slightly oily film instead of being completely dry like Dupont PTFE i've tried, it seems to work well.
I put some on the Caps Lock switch of my yellow Alps64 (mapped to fn) to stop it from binding and it hasn't lost it's smoothness.

LMAO! Shows you the kind of people slandering and hating on Red. Reminds me of myself a little while back hating on a certain fanbase (over that now, thankfully)
