Swapping Blacks with Reds

Hi everyone,

I'd like to swap my MX Blacks (PCB mounted) with some MX Reds from another keyboard (Plate Mounted).

Could I be able to just open the switches and swap the spring? Is it possible to open switches if plate mounted? Is there any difference in the stem beside the color?

Thanks in advance

Re: Interest Check for MX black keyboard *NIB* with weird keycaps

If your iron has temperature control, for soldering I'd use ~280 C for small pads and ~320 C for large ground planes or thick wires. For desoldering I usually go for ~320 and go fast. Go in, heat the pad, add more solder, suck and out in 2-3 seconds. That of course if you are using the good old dea...

Re: Interest Check for MX black keyboard *NIB* with weird keycaps

Your iron is probably too hot, or you take too much time and you overheat the pad. Just to make sure, it doesn't have provision for ANSI, does it? Unfortunately not, the only "secret" things are holes for leds under capslock and numlock, and the three mounts for switches you can see under the actua...

Re: Interest Check for MX black keyboard *NIB* with weird keycaps

http://imgur.com/VytCyqg.jpg This the one I got without keycaps for me. I harvested some caps from a Chicony with Miniature switches (I'd still need a bottom row and an off-centre caps lock to make it look complete). Also I finally managed to hook up a PS2 cable after breaking one of the pcb solder...

Re: Interest Check for MX black keyboard *NIB* with weird keycaps

Do these have NKRO ? if the answer is yes, are there any left ? I know I'm super late to the party but it doesn't hurt to ask. I can't test right now as I don't have a DIN to PS2 adapter. Would directly changing the cable with a PS2 one work? Anyway except unexpected changes there aren't any left, ...

After some use I noticed I'm less keen to bottom out on Topres, which I usually do on MX, even if the wiki says it should be the opposite. I can describe the whole experience as "softer" than the MX Blues and Buckling Spring I'm used to. I can use less force to write on the keyboard, as the membrane...

That sounds like winter in Scotland, besides for the blue skies in the distance part. When the storms are blowing here, there's nothing but big thick clouds hugging the ground. And the occasional flying tree. Summer's much better. There's the occasional break from the rain and hail: image.jpg One I...

Image the Realforce is here! At first impression I don't like Topres that much, they remind me a bit of MX Red which I don't like also. I prefer the clickyness of MX Blue. Maybe I just need to get accustomed

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

The seller has a couple of them and after "looking for an offer" he is asking now 500 for each. Haha I definitely can't afford that!

The split ergo Cherry is legendary. You'll have people pouncing on you to get hold of one.
Little edit makes a big difference, probably ;)

I'm in costant contact with seller, which seems a bit hesitant to price lowering after I got the price of 15€ per keyboard. Price reductions will come only as we come near to the total number of the keyboard, it looks like he wants to sell them all in this one time. Anyway he assured me that if we b...

Around 8-10 people are needed for the price of 15€ per keyboard, and I'm sure about that as I've already talked with the seller about it. I still don't know how many we need to be to lower the price more, but it's obviously also in his interest to sell the most of them. If we reach bigger numbers I ...
