Next I'll post visual wav graphs proving my filco pings. :)

What do you mean by this? All my WASD keycaps height is consistent.

Do you mean that The SP-profile keycaps aren't the same? (A fn# row filco/WASH is taller than a Fn# row SP keycap). This is, unfortunately one of the drawbacks of SP. They also don't match with cherry.
some within the same row will raise higher than other, example, my H is lower than G, my backspace is higher than of the numbers

See, these caps are perfect. I assume there are a lot of people on here who play pool.

I need to sell some keyboards to buy a pool cue. My old sneaky pete's butt is separating. (Door wide open for jokes there)
I also still need to get an Albino Bowler painting from McPhee before Ramirez dies and they become priceless.

Really? I was told they were a cherry profile?

SP's DCS is pretty close to Cherry for R1-3 (Esc-Num/QWE/ASD) but for ZXC/Modifiers, SP is much more angled than Cherry.

I've had a few Meuccis and loved them all.

What could possibly be bad about importing/receiving plastic keycaps? Those customs people can be pretty awful.

If they suspect them to be worth more than a certain amount, let's say €25, you need to pay tax.

Pretty sweet cause those guys always want money. (They almost always nab anything remotely taxable.)
