First glance of it
This is the keyboard when I first received it, it wasn't in bad condition it was just dirty and the switch were quite crappy.
I didn't know these could be on the numpad keycaps ! I was very surprised to see this when I first saw the listing, can#t say I'm disappointed ...
Contrôle ! even with the accent !! that's some dedication
Took off its main aspect
As you can see the keyboard was quite dirty ...
Ugh ... I'm not sure I want to desolder everything for this ... guess I'll leave it like that :/
My best friend talks easily to dirt
Proof that he does !
Opening it even further
That's dirty .. how is the inside going to be ?
Welp .. time to open them all up
Done, finally ...
I ultrasonic cleaned the keycaps because they surely need to be cleaned in some way, it cleaned them pretty well though I'm still quite not satisfied with how it turned out, I'm still searching for a way to clean keycaps in the best way possible, if you have any recommendation ...
I've been told that the best way toclean bottoms is with compressed air, sure looks like it is !!
Putting it back together
Hard work is always rewarded !
With my technique of putting the spring in, then assembling the switch in the top housing and then reversing it on the spring, it was hard to do it with this Wang, it's quite angled and without this switch tested the spring would simply fall.
Aww ... that's quite bad, thanks to mike52787 I had lots of Apple caps and easily found a replacement, see the nest picture.
Thanks again Mike !
Here it is on my desk, waiting for a nice cable. It types nicely and looks also very nice, it might be need some lube but right now I'm enjoying it as is, this will be for another time !
Sure, there you goCould we at least have some kind of sound test ??
(excuse my language in the middle of the video, this feature of Windows triggers me everytime because it's so useless !! I don't understand how could anyone have thought that this should pop up everytime you press X times Shift ! ask me if I want to see it again the first it happens at least !!)
