Is this the one that was on ebay recently? If so I almost bought it but forgot to get back on in time lol. I have the RT8255C+ (just a normal spacebar and winkeyless variant) and have been typing with it for the past couple months and love it. I got used to the 1U backspace much faster than I expect...

3D printing sliders wouldn't be worth the money honestly, even using material jetting, which is honestly the most accurate plastic 3D printing, still has a rough finish and a very high cost per part. When I was prototyping the Nexus Alps sliders I did this and it honestly isn't nearly accurate enoug...

This sounds so good...really solidifies this as my favorite tactile, still wish I had a full board to use.

I finally got the chance to put things together. The relatively small switch leg holes are pretty tidy. It's running some old Matias clickies and some new, but I think I'll have to decide on a keycap design. Does the default firmware map have the "menu" key mapped to some sort of function layer? It...

To get rid of rust easily, you can soak the plates in vinegar, scrub, sand them, then Rust-Oleum them (See my AT101 plate above) Not that switch plate, though it may be a confusing as the term is the same for some reason, I was meaning the the contact leaf setup inside the alps switch, I have harve...

While I'm here I might as well say that I hate when Alps boards get harvested for their keycaps and switches, then landfilled. Should be marked as a serious crime :x . Any person even contemplating doing this type of heinous activity in "Harvesting" switches and throwing away the original keyboard,...

I've also got a M0116 with linearized Salmons (as the tactile leafs were ruined) Those tops are very clean and also are Pines with slits so I wonder if they could enhance the feel of these bamboo blacks in any ways. Pine housings will make the bamboo blacks feel better, the older housings are much ...

So... Apparently there was a group buy for PBT Alps keys. https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=96448 So what, it's only for the tiny 60% keyboard :x . When they run a full 101 or 104 key set, then I'm in all the way. Pity no one is yet running a complete PBT dye-sub key-set for OmniKey keyboards, n...

Update: Got the updated boards and they fit!!! Only one of the peg holes is off, which sucks because I did move it to fix but I don't think that change saved because it lines up just like the last version. So you may need to shave the little ribs on the upper peg on the bottom case halve to allow t...

Your directness and transparency counts for a lot.

The PCBs are scheduled to finish on 8/10 so I will update once ...

I extended the GB until the 23rd as we are not at the MOQ for the Omnikey or AT101 PCBs. If you know someone who has one of these that may be interested, please let them know, we are so close and it would suck for this to not reach MOQ.
