Re: Help me choose my next project please

Another suggestion, perhaps support for SMK switches?

Thank you for the reply, if I could ask what payment source did you connect to Alipay? (was it an overseas credit card?)
I just used my normal bank card.

Re: [SHIPPED] Hua-Jie AK-CN2 Alps clones (ROUND 2)

Has anyone else received their switches yet? I'd like to get everone's feedback on them and work out improvements/suggestions. I understand that this might not be what you are looking for, because I didn't buy any, but I would say that the main improvement any alps clone could make would be to add ...

Somewhere along the way I decided that I'd also like to do a Wang 724. I'm going to design an Alps TKL PCB for this build. Would anyone be interested in a copy of the PCB? If so, what features and layouts should I do?
A Tai-Hao ANSI layout would be great.

Re: Stuff you just bought

I just got two of the FlagK boards that Chyros reviewed recently (with the linear white switches). I'm click modding one with leaves from CS switches and will probably sell the other. The linear switches are actually pretty good but I like super tactile and clicky.

Does anyone know what materials the original Alps sliders and lubricant are? Perhaps I can ask Hua-Jie for a smoother slider next round.

Re: [SHIPPED] Hua-Jie AK-CN2 Alps clones (ROUND 2)

Yes, I noticed that too. I'm guessing it's because the tooling for these switches is rather old. For large unstabilized keys I found WD-40 Specialist dry lubricant works well on these.

Re: Why are Vintage Cherry mx Black Switches so Smooth?

I'm guessing gradual tooling wear over time. Which means newer batches of Zealio/Tealio may become gradually scratchier too over the years mypremiercreditcard.

Re: PingJunior: 60% PingMaster build

Wow, great work! Do the Alps stabilizers have enough clearance from the B3G-S switches? They are running smoothly, my few keys are overly thick for B3G-S (F, J, Spacebars). Most of alps caps should be fine. Good, Tai-Hao caps would fit (except for the spacebar which could use a Cherry plate mount s...
