Re: Alps plate spring custom build log (work in progress)

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...

That adds like 10 cool points. Is it AT protocol? I haven't gotten mine to work yet.
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.

Force Curve In order to make sure I am not crazy I compared the internals of all 3 switches: SKCL green, Box Black, and Vintage Black. Side by side, you could see the evolution of springs' diameters. Initially I thought this might be the reason for boring linear in SKCL switches in general. https:/...

Cool idea, I suggest keeping the bracket keys cluster together. On the home row, swap the positions of ] and ' keys. Just like the ibm multi station.

Not at all, they are the lighter version of Alps Plate Springs, almost linear with the tiny click sound.

Good luck finding those keyboards especially ones with all PBT key-caps for under $400USD if they are trashed but for NIB condition, do expect closer to $700+.
