Re: Omron75, the year of B3G-S omrons

I've had a board in near new condition with some clicky ambers in it for the longest time, but i've been mostly unable to use it since it's so large (A Wang 725 of some sort). I've been looking about for projects that would support these switches, and I have to say this one looks pretty good! Becau...

Ah, to clarify, I'm going to use alps switches I harvested from an AEK.
Oh, in that case you're are good. Those caps are made for SKCL/M specifically. The spacebar is a bit funky, it uses cherry system for stabilizer but the rest of the long keys use alps system. Make sure your plate supports it.

Re: Omron75, the year of B3G-S omrons

I have to check, taihao uses support bars underneath the caps. Might not fully bottom out on Omrons for Row3 I don’t think there’s tkl pcb out there for omrons just yet. Omrons use alps mounting system for caps, but the electrical pinouts are not the same as SKCL/M. DrClick has the 60% pcb readily a...

Re: Omron75, the year of B3G-S omrons

I'm trying to build some Omron customs myself, but I can't seem to find any loose amber B3G-S. I found those tactiles on Taobao, but the amber listing I found is apparently out of stock.

Also, is that gray-on-gray plaid texture an inherent property of carbon fiber surfaces? 'cause I can imagine some peo...

Very nice work!
My NOS tactile white swithces from taobao are more wobbly than alps sliders, how about yours?
Sound about right, just by a tiny bit. Longer travel distance and softer housing material are the causes IMO

Plate spacers are shorter than the polycarb mid piece to make sure the plate is rested on the polycarb mid piece only, no metal touching metal. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48033138356_4e26197015_k.jpg Closed up of Cerakoted and Homage to Next Non-ADB https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48033...

There are and there arent. There are 3 types of alps plate springs but they are mostly just the usual inconsistency of Alps Electric. They function exactly the same from one to another. So you have: 1. 2-pins Plate mount APS 2. 6-pins Square pcb-mount APS, sometimes the top housings are black, somet...

Yea it's AT, you will be disappointed when you convert the thing, very lazy engineering. Also the pcb has to curve hence it's so thin.
