Re: Fact checking: Are Alps SKCC and SKCM/SKCL springs interchangeable?

SPRiT sells some Alps springs: https://www.spritdesigns.com/product-page/alps
I use them in Alps Browns and so far I have no complaints. Not sure if they fit Alps SKCC though, but from my experience they look really similar.

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

This is probably not the right place to discuss this further, but we're on Offtopic-thority anyway! I took a quick comparison pic between a Cherry MX Silent Black (left) and Silent Red (right) spring. The wire is definitely different, but unfortunately I can't accurately measure the wire gauge with ...

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

On the Silent Blacks I don't notice any creaking until I go very close to the keyboard. Overall I'm really happy with the Silent Blacks, although the springs could be a tiny bit lighter for my taste. On another custom board with Silent Reds it is much more noticeable and they are indeed quite incons...

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

I recently built this custom G80-11800 with a YDKB Grape PCB, custom steel plate, Cherry MX Silent Blacks and EnjoyPBT 9009 keycaps. I also lined the case with EPDM foam to make it even more quiet and to have it feel more solid. It's still slightly pingy, though. Custom G80-11800.png I have 2 sets o...

Re: Doubt about Cherry stabilizer size

This might depend on the place, way and material you get your plate cut, but I ordered a lasercut steel plate based on a plate generated by http://builder.swillkb.com/ a few weeks ago and the GMK stabs I used fit quite snug. They need a little bit of force to mount and won't come out on accident, so...

Re: Decision Data Computing Corp. Model C1410A#ABA

Since a DIN5-to-PS/2 adapter is only a electrical pass through and doesn't contain any logic it would only change the pins you need to use from the respective connector. Maybe your keyboard doesn't speak a protocol Soarers Converter understands?

Re: Problem with IBM Model F AT - all LED lights light up, no key output

I had a problem like that with my Model F AT and for me it was a power problem, as Mµ suggested. I used one of those Blue Cube PS/2 to USB adapters. I can't find one for sale on the quick, but just google "Blue Cube PS/2 to USB adapter" and you should find one. I see that you're already using an ada...

Re: Cherry MX Keys to Alps SKCC

The Alps SKCC cross mount is actually kinda close to the Cherry MX mount. The thickness of the cross arms is almost on point, all you would need to do is shorten the arms a bit. I tried this once with an SA profile keycap and it worked quite good. So if you are ready to modify your switches this mig...
