Is there still any chance of Round 2?

https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/com ... lps_white/ for anyone who was waiting for another round. Reddit does seem like the best bet to hit MOQ.

Awesome.
Recently I finally completed my SKCM Blue ALPS Build, but the switches were in pretty bad shape.
It would be interesting comparing used Blue ALPS with NOS White ALPS.

If you clean the switches the best you can then replace the top housing then they should turn out really well.

I desoldered the switches. Gave them a denture tab bath. Lubed the stems with some dry Teflon lube.
Never realized that replacing the top housing improves ALPS switches.
Maybe I'll give that a try at one point.
What's the reasoning in that? Maybe the sliders don't slide that well in some old housing worn out by dust?

Replace the click leaf from a Matias one. Matias click leaves are almost identical and a worn out click leaf adds a lot of scratch to a switch (Restoring an extremely worn out and dirty Pine White Alps board right now and can confirm with a few loose switches I've modded.

Also I've found out that the WD40 Specialist dry PTFE works better than the Dupont stuff.

But still the BG is not over. I'm yet to order some.
Do you still have some?
