I read into this thread expecting there to be Star Citizen discussion (RSI Robert Space Industries).
I was wrong.
I have never had these problems with typing, I do however suffer from skin irritation on my forearms from flailing my mouse around, rubbing on the edge of my table and mouse pad.

If I've ordered and I pay but the stock doesn't match the quantity in the OP does that mean the OP is out of date and I will receive the items I've ordered, or I have to wait until they're in stock and then it will be shipped?

Honeywell E03601ELHW-C Switch Identification

Heya,

Found this Honeywell on ebay and was wondering what switch this was. My guess is rubber domes but I'm not sure.

If you could help me identify this it would be great :)

Yeah, I'm just teasing. It's not like you trashed some fresh ones. Matias makes damped switches too, of course, and your AEK would be more authentic with a clean set of those… I just wish MX could be damped on the upstroke as well as the down. I'm not so worried about it being authentic... ish, the...

I'm really sloppy with my pinkies when typing unfortunately, so the big enter saves me from making too making too many mistakes. I'm especially sloppy with my right pinky, so much so that I've never touched the RShift on my keyboard... I can safely life without it.

See, you went and wrecked 'em, man! Should have gone straight to Matias in the first place… Despite what Daniel says, the damped tactile switches in AEK IIs are jolly nice, in my opinion. They were Alps' attempt to solve the same issue as Topre's (super costly) Type S. The sound of a good damped sw...

I think I may just replace all the switches with matias click. The existing switches are so gammy that I can't type on them.

Heya fellas! My AEKII's switches are in need of a good lube as they've become quite gammy to depress.

I like what you're trying to do with the ADDS, but hooking a Teensy up to the matrix in parallel with the stock controller… hmm, could be trouble. Because when you strobe the matrix, you will strobe the output lines on the original controller, too. I don't know if this is risky, but I do suspect yo...

Sorry about all the pics. I thought verbosity would be best ;)

I don't have a use for the keyboard unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the layout. I will likely salvage it to make my own 60% that I'll use for my laptop :)
