Re: Does anyone else here still use ball mice?

Ok, that's good to know. I'll keep on hunting then, hope I find one soon that doesn't cost me a kidney.

Re: Does anyone else here still use ball mice?

Oh, I was more referring to general built quality and so on. As I'm looking for one to convert, I've searched around a bit and heard someone talk about how they were kinda flimsy. How's the quality compared to those ADB ones with the single button, so those . Because the M0100 ones are so much more ...

Re: Ultrasonic Key Cap Cleaning - 2021 Edition

Decided to get an ultrasonic cleaner too, since I got some Microswitch caps that are very dirty even on their insides. Denture tabs don't do anything and I can't reach in there all the way by hand. Found a used one in good condition on eBay, so I didn't even pay that much. Plus I can use it to just ...

Re: Looking to try a Model F (or a switch)

... Completely agree - in fact, the lack of arrow keys is, in general, not much of a problem, IMO. I'd sometimes wish that "AKL" (Arrowkeyless) had become a thing instead of TKL (Tenkeyless), since having the arrow keys on the numpad is, in my opinion, quite a bit more comfortable. It's nice (ærgøn...

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

Ok, I'm going to be honest: I don't feel that much of a difference. They're maybe a tad bid smoother, but that's it. I'd still advice for it because of the longevity issue with normal WD40. Furthermore, after trying out the board for a longer time I think they're not really for me. Mostly because I ...

Haha, this is some professional-level stuff. I use soapy water with dental cleaning pellet and let them dry by just leaving em out in the open :mrgreen:

Good ultrasonic cleaners are quite expensive and not really worth it for me, but the food dehydrator idea looks promising. Might look into that.

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

I already realized a difference just two days after I applied WD40, for the better in this case. My guess is a lot of the excess stuff evaporated, leaving only the oily components behind. That would explain why it smelled noticeably less intense and the key feel was different, more "even" if that ma...

Hmm, but the Wiki (and Keybug) mention(ed) white tactile switches, so I was wondering in what way the white tactile ones are superior to the yellows.

That's an interesting theory. However, my board is plateless and it still has (or now had) severe binding issues. I have not disassembled a switch yet, but I'm willing to try.

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

Ok, my room smells like WD40 now, but you were right, it's a massive improvement. Some of them are still kinda bindy on the very offcenter presses, but the rest of em work great. Makes me wonder what the optimal lube to use on them would be.
