I've gotta try this. I have a bunch of Alps switches stashed away because they weren't registering. I wasn't saving them because I was hoping future me would find a possible fix. I was saving them for parts.
Excited to hear if it works for you!

Re: Future of DT

NOR are you responding to the issues raised in recents posts within this thread. NOR you seem to be doing anything other than minimal damage control to direct issues raised. This methodology sounds REALLY familiar around here but I can't quite put my finger on where else I've seen it over and over ...

Re: Future of DT

I have no evidence OneCommerce is behind the emails I'm getting- just circumstantial. It would be a very startup-bro thing to match my rude emails and spamming with some retaliatory spamming but I'm not going to directly accuse them based only on the circumstantial. I only sent like 3 or 4 emails si...

Re: Future of DT

The value has gone down significantly since purchase. OneCommerce is clearly in over their heads and this purchase must be looking like a mistake. OneCommerce should sell DT to me for 1GBP and write off the loss on their taxes. I will then return the forum to a community-supported, community-control...

VR20X6 has been doing a similar bending for some time using flat tweezers or similar (forceps might work, etc.) on either side of the crease to prevent the metal from bowing by causing it to move only on the existing crease. unknown.png If you've got the tools, try it that way.

I've not seen this method described before and feel like I've just happened upon it, but if it's old news, please kindly point me toward the original.

Just guessing, but the first one looks useless but the second on might be alright.

Sorbothane is generally considered the gold standard for dampening, but it is expensive.
