Re: About yellowing

While UV is often cited as the prime reason for yellowing of our beloved keyboards' plastics, heat is also another big culprit. If keyboards were stored in an improper environment, ie without climate control, then heat and humidity could've played a part in its yellowing. Also, I believe if there's ...

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

Where do I get these? They are from the Realforce model 108UG-JS ZH0400. The 108UW ZH0300 comes with cream alphas and grey modifiers (same tone as these). These are JustSystems promotional limited edition models which come with the red modifier keys. There are also vintage OEM model keyboards from ...

Re: Opening and cleaning SMK blue clicky switchs

Oh, easy, just get some toothpicks to wedge I there or if you’re super careful, some small flathead screwdrivers. They are the easiest switches in the world to open without desoldering. Chyrosran22 has a video or two on how to do it. These SMK switches are not the Alps switches you're mistaking the...

Re: How many keyboards is enough?!

I've kept my collection relatively static for a while now and have grown content with what I have while selling off what I feel less of an attachment to. Ultimately it's all relative, whether you can justify keeping an entire warehouse full of keyboards or just a closet or even less so. It's all up ...

That’s right, the one I built doesn’t use Alps stabs, since the Granite keyset doesn’t support them.
SGI Granite keyboards don’t have traditional Alps stabilizers?
They mean DSA Granite from Matt3o

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Weak finish. What a shame. That doesn't look like the original finish at all, nor does it seem anywhere near as durable. Fading from use, from simply resting one's palms on the bezel while typing? I've never seen a single 4704 owner complain about that. Most of the chips and dings on those boards ca...

Re: Verge is laughably clueless on Keyboards

Shots fired! :lol:

Can't say I really cared much for the beamspring boards I've owned though.

If I had to choose between Cap BS and beamspring, I'd probably take a nice Cap BS variant over a similar (aesthetically pleasing/pleasing layout) beamspring.

Good stuff, Robb. Very creative! Seeing those recreations of the housing and slider setup is wild. Very nice work thus far.

The wonders of 3D printing. Otherwise, you'd have to do some serious scratch building to get everything precise one even just one side.

Wouldn't removing a stablizer that way still not solve the issue? They'd need to place a flipper in that position if I've understood correctly.

Wow, that is the first tasteful usage I've seen of the Canon spherical caps. It actually matches very well with the Tai Hao Dolch colorway.

That's very impressive! Good work.

Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

They can be affordable, if you find them on taobao. Less so on other more well-searched platforms.

To the OP, I just remembered that I actually have a loose P70 keyboard unit if you're interested. I could send you a PM if you'd like.

Gosh, there's so much dialogue here that I really couldn't go through all of it, but... If there's any recommendation I'd give that isn't Topre (I personally use silenced 30g Topre if I ever have aches), it would be Alps Plate Spring, aka Alps SKCP.

Here are mine. Grainy/texturing isn't really the best way to figure it out, but yes the non-shined caps are textured but then so are ABS caps that haven't been worn.
