Here is what must be a very early Hi-Tek Santa Ana keyboard pcb with linear modular switches.
The part number is 373-70100 The keys are slightly different to the stackpole as the one side is solid and the other side of the brass hands is slotted.

It strikes the pcb with quite a bit of force.There is no way to control the pressure as it builds up and snaps down .
Here is a video of the snap action https://youtu.be/o7blSSOU9Y0

Here is a link to a YouTube video of the switch.It is larger and quite different from the early Alps plate switch.It is a very simple switch that works unbelievably well.

Neat, I've never seen these before. It's a sort of dome switch. And I've never seen this before :D Are there any numbers on the pcb to identify it? Usually Alps has at least one or two.
