Re: Omron75, the year of B3G-S omrons

Hey guys, long time no update. I just received the second prototype today and I have 100% happy about the aesthetic and 95% there with construction, this was my fault for mixing up between m3 and m4 spacers without double checking. Here are the changes: 1. Exaggerated the chamfers to equalize the ov...

Re: Leaf80 - Bolt modded Alps Plate Spring TKL

Immensely cool project. I really need to get my hands on a P70 - I've always been interested to try plate springs, and those keycaps are simply the best alps caps out there. The keycaps are actually quite thin, so they aren't the "best" caps out there but I'd definitely say the material and printin...

Re: Leaf80 - Bolt modded Alps Plate Spring TKL

Holy crap, this is one of the coolest builds Iv'e seen as of late. I actually have a P70, but its in horrible condition but the switches still work and 5 are missing from the board. A TKL would be perfect for what I have. Would there be any way to buy all these in a kit or would I have to do the sa...

Re: Leaf80 - Bolt modded Alps Plate Spring TKL

The Diffuser Most ppl use diffuser for RGB underglow, diffuser actually has another use: adding extra spacing. Because of the bolt mod I want extra gap inside, also bigger gap is nicer for clicky switches anyway. Big thank to senter for providing the Leaf80 file design so I could derive the spacer ...

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.

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...

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...
