Re: How to have FR-4 switchplates made from PCB manufacturer?

I don't really recall anything else but I put copper fill on the front and back of the PCB.

Re: How to have FR-4 switchplates made from PCB manufacturer?

One thing I did was use a schematic of a single capacitor connected to ground on both sides. I never got the issue you did but I think this may resolve it.

There's some inconsistencies with the sizes of the base. Snap off the mounting clips on the switches that don't click properly.

This is an excellent guide.

I can also recommend some different manufacturers based on your needs (price, quality, speed)

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.

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.
