Based on info on IC's forums, it seems like the K type is back on the front burner. The plate and side integrated case design is pretty amazing. The new holdup seems to be related to a new force curve driven switch design. Personally holding out for that and tactile xmit (if someone can figure out a...

We're still working on finding a manufacturer that can crank out consistent click and tactile leaves, but this is something we're striving for, yes.
Good to hear.

This is an awfully long thread so I only skimmed it.

I came away with the distinct impression that I should head over to massdrop and order up one of the two TH pbt keysets sets that they have on offer.

So that is what I did.

Thanks, Deskthority.

I understand. Thank you. I think that the board originated from china and I haven't gotten a response from the GB leader so I'm not sure about documentation or schematics. At this point I'll give it one last go. I'm pretty sure that I can visually map the traces back to the controller. It is plate m...

I don't think that I am getting reliable frequency reading using my mm. Regardless of row or column I am getting 0Hz from the upper left pins on each switch and 60Hz from the lower right. I'm also getting 60 hz from just using one probe to the ground, so I think it's pretty dodgy. MM specs: http://w...

You might check continuity between the pins of that column and ground/earth to see if you might have a short on that column. There is continuity to ground on that column and no other. Investigating further. Does your MM also measure frequency? Then you could watch the controller as it scans the mat...

I did not get any reaction pressing the pin. I went ahead and re-soldered it a bit as well. Still no activity in that column.

Diagnosing a dead column

keysdead.jpg Was hoping for some help figuring out a dead column my RS84, I've done some preliminary work, but am out of ideas. - -Continuity tests show that the individual switches are connected to each other and a pin on the controller. And lower pin shows connection to the controller if the swit...

That cap has broken me. I know that it's just the angle ot the light and the texture of the surface in that last photo, but I suddenly need keycaps that twinkle...and I've never needed anything remotely like that before.

Round 5a question. Just to confirm: [HONEYB/TKL/SPH] uses WV/GD white on grey (ROUND4/SPH) and [HONEYB/ALPHAINT/WHITE] uses NN/WFK black on white (Round5/HONEY). Different whites?

I'd get one. Wouldn't mind a an esc and return in the round 5 red either. Think it's a bit of a deeper tone, maybe not to everyone's taste.

Cool, thanks. I'm sure that if I get a hold of a set I'll end up polishing them. Had to do that with my dolch dsa set to make them usable. These would be easier.

Very nice. Are these what SP calls "semi matte top and sides" or gloss?
