And this was just some cheap scrap baltic birch. Makes me wonder how exotic hardwood types will sound

I have noted this issue again with the powdercoating factory so they can hopefully thicken the paint for the final round.
What keyboard/keymap are you using? I'm using https://config.qmk.fm/# and don't see anything related to F62/F77, etc...
The solenoid I am using is rated at 5mm. But the chassis is adjustable and you can fine tune the lenght of the throw that way and mounting it closer to the hack object. At full lenght it is a little sluggish, but keeping it on a shorter throw speeds things up. Speed is tweakable in the capsense util too, so it's not that bad to dail it in as you like.Ellipse wrote: ↑13 Jun 2020, 23:07Twst what is the throw distance of your solenoid if I may ask? Is there an order link? I read that the throw should be under 1mm.
Since I ordered some xwhatsit solenoid drivers (now available to order on the project web site; will be delivered in a few weeks) I am also looking to order some recommended solenoids.
Yes beamsprings seem to be quite sensitive, but I do believe it's a problem of calibration and that should be solvable via FW..jafd wrote: ↑18 Jun 2020, 13:09I have a question regarding the 0.9.2 firmware: is it any good for a xwhatsit controller that is attached to an IBM 3178 keyboard (with 16x8 matrix), or is it specific to this Model F? I have one which starts double registering some keys and not register others after some time of use (at first, tweaking the threshold works, then it kind of slips and there's not a good threshold). I don't know if it can be fixed purely in the firmware, or I need to look for grounding problems or what else might make it malfunction from mere uptime.
