Plus there's that weird dark green/teal Alps SKFL that may or may not be a real switch — it seems to be there as part of the stabiliser, rather than as a switch, but even more confusingly, it looks like the LED hole of the other switch is full of hot glue or an LED or something.
They're quite different to the ones shown here:
Yeah... maybe a very early version of SKFL?skrsh3r wrote: ↑Also stems are different on those skfl switches, they don't have that little plastic part in center that stops you from using some alps keycaps.
Here’s my butchered (his was too dark to see anything) version of one of HaaTa’s pictures (https://www.flickr.com/photos/triplehaata/12888490103/):

Similarly to how we staretd calling clicky SMK switches "Montereys": by finding them in a ICL-branded keyboard. Neither of the earliest found switches, SMK or Ericsson, had any logo.Daniel Beardsmore wrote: ↑So, how did we get "ICL switch" out of them?
