All invoices have been sent out, shipping calculated via the addresses I pulled from PayPal. If this address is not correct, please let me know before paying your invoice. Also, I did not include insurance in the cost, if this is something that concerns you, I can add the cost to your invoice and upgrade the shipping for you.

Aaand paid again. Now I have to start figuring out what is it exactly that I want to do with all these switches.

Same, may try out swapping the top housing with scratchy blues and see if it has any effect.

Nah, just top housing
like I said. SKCL top housings do not accomodate click/tactile leaves. the position for the LED takes up the space that the leaf normally would.

The click leaf takes up the space where the LED cutout goes, hence why clicky Alps can't use LEDs.

Anyone who paid me before 07:00 EST (11:00 UTC) should go out this morning, got everything labelled and plan on shipping out this morning. For everyone else, I may not be able to get to the post office this weekend but should go out Monday if I am unable to make it.

First deliveries have just been made. Only a few people haven't yet paid, and anyone who hasn't will have their packages shipped out next week (or later depending on payment).

Thanks again Blaise for running the GB, I just received them today. :)

I got mine today too and wasted no time in soldering them into my Omnikey Ultra-T. It’s pretty unbelievable that we’re all here in 2018, more than 20 years after complicated ALPS went out of production, and we get to type on brand new ALPS switches. Thanks for running the group guy again Blaise. This was the most flawlessly amazing executed group buy I’ve even been a part of, and I’m super happy with the Yellow ALPS switches.

Has anyone tried the ALPS clones yet? I can’t get them mounted into an ALPS switchplate. It’s like they’re ever so slightly too big. I got only a few as a novelty, so it’s not a big deal if they don’t fit.

Just got mine and I agree with the rest, these are some truly impressive Alps. Almost makes me question if ultra sonic restoring my green alps is even worth it when I know that these exist!

As for the clones, I only got a few for cuiosities sake and they are not great. They don’t fit into any of my Alps plates without modification and they don’t feel all that great to press. The tactile bump/click feels like it starts too high up in the keytravel, and the click action feels a little violent. But hey, I don’t think anyone was expecting greatness there :lol:

Thanks again Blaise, this went well.

How exciting. I hope I can get some extras of the Yellows for an upcoming build. Congrats on a smooth buy.

No, I never got a chance to get around to it. If anyone is interested in an amount less than 200 though, PM me and I'll invoice you.

Wow so many PMs while I was away. :?

As I said, I've been especially busy so it might take me a few days to get to them.

Yeah, me too, but it seems that a lot of people shot a PM and it‘ll take some time to go through them all. :)
