Re: NovaTouch TKL Community Tour

I'd LOVE to try and get in on this! Incline Village, NV, USA checking in! I've been wanting to try out a Topre board for some time now! Currently using Matias Quiet Clicks on my V60, but I definitely would love to get on that Topre train! Cheers! :D My understanding is that the NT tour is only for ...

Re: My First Post Here :)

Hi - that was my garage in the photo earlier. It no longer looks this way, I assure you. I'm fortunate to be near a contact who in turn has enough contacts with recyclers, etc. that many interesting things come my way. I've sold a fair number of these boards to community members. My long term goal ...

I hear you on that! I don't play nearly as much as I'd like to anymore now that I have a baby around. It's not as easy to fire up my half stack like I used to! Haha

I agree! I have MX board, Alps in the mail, Topre will be next, and then I want a nice vintage board like that Beamspring :D

It doesn't have to be like that. Here's the mainstay of my own much more focussed collection:

It's a challenge alright, don't get your hopes up too high, and don't give up either! First you'll need a pile of cash. And then you need to convince me to sell that beamspring I promised Seebart to you instead. I wonder what bribery you have in store! Ahh now he's getting tough on me. :mrgreen: Sc...

It takes a lot of time for the lube to really get in there! Average lubing procedure in warm climates takes about 5 years to mature properly. By the way, have you tried buckling spring yet? And welcome! Oh wow! I had no idea! That's pretty insane haha. I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting a b...

You can lube Alps, but a thorough clean will probably work better. I have a video tutorial on it in case you need it. No need to start tinkering unless the switch feel is scratchy though :) . Very true, Alps are dirt prone. There are worlds in feel between clean and really dirty Alps SKCL/SKCM seri...

Yes but you'll need about 4-9 years for both! :mrgreen:
4-9 years to lube the switches or to try all the switches?? Haha

@grav3serker: Welcome aboard. You have some excellent plans for your KBP V60MTS-Q. I have all three MTS variants. I like the Click version best. The Q version feels a bit too much like Cherry mx with O-rings to me, but the switch action itself is still better than any Cherry mx IMO. You might also ...

Hey all! I've been a member of /r/MK and GH for a little bit, and now I'm finally a member here! I have currently have a QFR with MX Browns, but plan on modding the switches to stickered & lubed Panda Clears in the near future. I just purchased a KBParadise V60MTS-Q off of a GH member earlier today,...
