This is my philosophy - except I forget to sell things on. I’m stock-rich but money-poor. There’s no liquidity in my operation: good news for the keyboards at least.
I feel you :lol:

Just bought the board, it looks fancy enough and the seller gave me a price cut. 30 bucks including shipping is not too bad for an interesting board.
plz post a few pics later, here and discord :P

(Might want to sell some of that stock of yours then…)
Oh, I do indeed want, but I forgot to mention I’m also time-, energy- and organisation-poor, which is easy to blame on having young children, so yeah, it’s their fault.

Looks like it's some sort of foam and foil switch with a buckling rubber sleve for tactility.

That's an interesting looking switch, no idea what it is though. How do they feel?

Fairly standard 1980s linear switch. Pretty smooth, but quite short travel for the switch height. I thought they felt a bit like Cherry M7.

This thing was pretty weird, all metal case, seemed to be manufactured by the same company as branded. Couldn't get a good picture of the back label without taking off the wrapping and employees were walking past me frequently. Would have bought it if not for the laughable price tag. Might go back next week and offer $20.


Any knowers?

looks like a fujitsu keycap, either pearless or leaf spring?
But i might be wrong since this looks a little different.

But considering the buildquality i wouldve bought it instantly!

Can you help me find out what switches the Olivetti s20 Laptop uses?
Probably Olivetti Snap Action or more likely their cheapyfied Dome with slider version but I want to be sure.
