Re: Resin print keyboard parts factory

Hi, Transparent resin is okay but too much UV makes it turn a weird colour. Functionally it's fine. I will get gray next time. Functionally the caps work. The orientation of print made some distort of the top, but I think it's pretty good. I will change the orientation later. The skcm plate is good ...

Re: Resin print keyboard parts factory

This was the thought process for this key. I think the indent will be adjusted but I am happy with shape to a degree otherwise. I notice the original one has a more cross pattern and a shallower indent, but I will try this first regardless. I have reduced the filet here and made it more square vs th...

Re: Scratchy Model F - can you lube these?

what type of model f do you have? Generally imho the model f relies on slick keycaps and slack between surfaces to lubricate. This is why I would echo fohats notion of cleaning. Often the model f will just have stuff inside it causing friction. Disassembly and cleaning is almost always the way to go.

Re: M0110 retro 60%

Hi,

This is really cool. Good job! I don't know enough about the switches to say about cleaning. I will say with skcm alps you know when they need cleaning. If they are good and you like using them, it may be correct to just keep using them

Re: Beamspring switch lubrication

The beamspring uses a cylinder slider versus the more square ones of alps/cherry/ This means that the actual friction contact of the slider and housing has a very low contact point, leading to low friction. Major friction point would be the barrel housings rail guides for the slider inside. The inte...

About the flipper, could it be that it doesn't work perfectly because the spring is not seated correctly on the little stem? When the spring buckles, it applies a "moment" (not sure if the translation is correct), and if it is not seated firmly, the buckling doesn't translate in a "moment" acting o...

Will respond to messages tomorrow. Sorry for delay.

Printing has gone well.

The black resin legit smells like death. Many science is required. The beamspring keycap in black does not fit on stem. No matter.

The model F stabs are almost ready.
