Re: Would it be possible for someone to recreate the SKCM blue alps switch?

Ok, I got replies from several manufacturers who say they will be able to do it! Durock seems to be the most likely candidate, but of course the moulds will be expensive to make. I am running an interest check to see how much demand there would be for these switches: https://forms.gle/yTruRbAyMXFCQ...

Re: Matias Ergo Pro w/ Salmon ALPS & PBT caps

While Alps is most famous for its much hyped SKCM blues, Salmon Alps are my favorite tactile Alps (a close second SKCM browns). But I am a linear guy... So lubed MX Vintage Blacks is my to go. Enjoy this nice creation while Matias is gone for a long time with totally no hope for us that he will actu...

Re: Would it be possible for someone to recreate the SKCM blue alps switch?

And everyone said the old moulds and toolings for complicated Alps were lost. But since when and under whose hands were they lost. Could they be under someone's possession but they're not into make switches or that they don't like the design for some reason? And how about the research notes or meet...

Re: has the trackball landscape changed in any way lately?

The scrollwheel of expert "mouse" is really terrible. I had to tweak it for both expert mouse units I had. The symmetrical units (expert mouse, slimblade, L-Trac, this iMouse T50) allow the possibility switch hands when using the pointing device, versus the asymmetric design like those from Elecom -...
