One can never have too many switches.

Boxes, back row:
  • Misc
  • Futaba
  • Cherry MX
  • Alps SKCL Yellow
Boxes, front row:
  • Cherry M5/6/7/8
  • Alps clones
  • Alps SKCL/SKCM/SKBM (no-one's ever seen SKBL in the wild)
Left: stray SMK, SMK clones, Alphameric foam and foil, a load of broken wings from the yellow Alps
Right: MEI not-WEAB, some still in their RS packaging

Still a long, long way to go …

That's a very nice drawing, I like it. I still have some switches that you might be missing. I'll have to go through my obscure bucket of unknown switches.

The yellow Alps went unsold at GH for many months.
The amber Alps you can buy from here: (which is where I got them)
The rest of the loose Alps switches came from a Mr Interface sample kit.

Yes, I still have a long way to go: Alps SKCL Compact, SKFL and SKFL compact, SKFR/SKFS, the other integrated domes, side dome, the other SKCL/SKCM/SKBL/SKBM (especially the ultra-elusive SKCM Green); Datanetics; M9, ML, and the other MY and MX types; cyan and white Omron; SMK 2nd gen latching; Micro Switch Hall Effect; Apple hairpin spring; and many others.

Still, it's coming along slowly.
