Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

I haven't used The Dolch for more than a year, so, a few weeks ago decided to give it some love and care: cleaned up, corrected some bad soldering since it was my first custom project, and changed the stems from vintage black to vintage clear (kept the black springs), also removed all the white LEDs...

It's a lot of ritual for… ritual. I think that is the thing for me. While performing "the ritual" I set myself up mentally for the listening of that album / music and only that.

Re: Best Way to Pull Off Keycaps Without a Puller?

First of all, for ALPS keycaps you have to be extra careful. Here is a guide with images . I know, the guide shows a wire puller being used, but, if you can find some stiff and thin enough electrical wire (that you can fit between the keycaps), you can create a loop and then spin it to look like and...

There is a preorder option on CandyKeys (german shop), but it is only for the clicky blue switches.

Re: Not Sure I'm Happy with Cherry MX...

Linear MX is pretty scratchy for such a famed (to the extent of total monoculture) switch. Even those brand new silent reds in my Majestouch make a shuffle-shuffle sound up and down I don’t hear from other linears. I don’t know why, but Cherry’s own implementation of the design is still disappointi...

Well, for click and feel beamspring and buckling spring are universally considered to be the best, so, if you are searching for something comparable, I do not think you would have much luck. Regarding the MX Greens, sadly, Cherry's design for click switches is not the best that is why a lot of peopl...

it's a known technology. 3D dye-sub. You basically wrap the whole keycap not just the top. Then it's vacuumed and heated. It's not easy to do it right just because it requires more time and attention than standard dyesub. I was reluctant when they suggested it to me, but I saw the result and I'm im...
