Re: Alps Appreciation

further down the rabbit hole we go: alps-compatible, bottom-mount dactyl plate. everything snaps in wonderfully. yes, even the alps stabilizers. i was lucky enough to find out about my local library's 3D printers, and so here we are :). https://i.imgur.com/scxagfl.png https://i.imgur.com/HxGWLvb.png...

[WTB] Any Good-condition SKCM Brown Alps Keyboard or Loose Switches

Hello,

I'm looking to buy any good-condition SKCM Brown ALPS keyboard or loose switches.

I'm located in the U.S., but I can entertain offers worldwide.

Thank you!

I desoldered it to swap in Zilents v2 62g switches and it simply hasn't skipped a beat. least reliable: my 2012-era iPad's Bluetooth keyboard case, with its keycaps that snap off for seemingly no reas...
