Re: Alps Appreciation

Geez, it did not occur to me that the Apple AEKII would be regarded as a keyboard that needs to be preserved. I thought it's the type of keyboard that was so mass produced it, that is pops up everywhere. Also, I did not find much praise for the dampened ALPS switches. They also felt like a lackluste...

Re: Alps Appreciation

Finally found a NOS Alps keyboard after several junk ones. Apple AEKII with SKCM Alps White dampened. I think I'm gonna desolder these switches for my ALPS64 build. (Since the 2nd GB run for those NOS SKCM White Alps did not go through :cry: ) I plan on click modding the tactile leaves and replacing...

Re: Dirty Alps

You would be amazed how a little bit of cleaning and lubing transforms a board/switches. Had one Focus FK-2001 with some pretty dusty and mushy SKCM White ALPS. I desoldered all them, cleaned them. Got some new springs, lubed the stems with some dry lube. Now the switches are completely transformed,...

I need maybe 70 to fill up my newly arrived ALPS64 PCB.

Re: Tai-Hao Olivette in Alps mount may return!

Yeah.
I got their Black, Dolch, Red Dolch set but Olivette never went back in stock.
Such a great vintage set but they never produced more of it, strange.
They got some new Tom Cat/Charcoal blue force colors, though.

You reshaped the click leaves?
Were the switches worn out and uneven in sound and feel?
I have a couple of used SKCM White ALPS and I plan to restore them. I wonder how can I re-bend the click leaves in a uniform way across the board to restore the click and tactility.
