yooo that's rusty mate
well the one I drilled was made in 86, I drilled it freehand on a flat surface and it came out pretty nice and with no cracks

I gotta say though, I have quite some drilling experience and I did it in stages, not drilling right away

first I took a chisel and removed old plastic rivets flush with the plate
then I took soldering iron and made little indents where drill would go
then I drilled it with drill 0.2 mm thinner than the target one
then with the target bit
then cleaned it with chisel again

once you vacuum it or clean it whatever manner you find fitting you can start putting in the screws, which is a pain in the ass because they come in between barrels where you can't really hold them with your fingers so so forceps and such are your friend

if you can't drill that well nobody will force you to drill it all in one day, take it slow and make good holes

As I've said before and will say agai: if it's not an AK-47, don't call it an AK-47. It would've been easier to just leave off the MCS half of 870 and avoid calling it a proper designation. If he doesn't have an 870 to MCS spec, which I doubt he does, then don't call it an MCS. I'm sure it's just an Express and he just didn't think that MCS was a massive modifier.

Calling an 870 Express an MCS is not 100% correct unlike calling a cutdown 870 a master key. There's a big difference and it's pretty damn likely he doesn't know what it is.

Got a memeforce early this afternoon, tried to desolder some switches and ended up ripping off three pads in the process, effectively bricking parts of the switch matrix. After various attempts at fixing this shit I gave up and decided that I'd just handwire it with a teensy and put it in the case.

What perplexes me is how easily this thing got fucked. I've put my Ducky Shine 4 PCB through worse and it still works perfectly fine.

So now I'll be making a memeforce with gateron clears (reds and blacks for certain keys) that's handwired and fully programmable with a teensy.

Nope, the WASR is an AKM variant.

870 Express is not an MCS in terms of finish, furniture, barrel length, and everything else really. It's not the same, how very astute of you.

Your DD then would be an M203 then, and LMT makes them to the same spec as KAC and Colt, unlike the WASR compared to an AK-47 or an 870 Express compared to an MCS. What you're saying is more like calling a Spikes Tactical Havoc an M203.

I'll have to look into this.

And yeah, I feel like the solder with this thing was quite different from what I've dealt with before. I had to set my pump to 400 degrees or so to even melt the stuff properly.

On the note of which, I made the experience burning yourself with a 350 degree hot piece of metal. Don't hold your soldering iron with your mouth while fumbling right in front of it with your hands. Put it on the table or wherever it won't get in your way.

So I've tried MX Blues at the store before, but the only boards I've owned have been a RealForce 87UB and a CM Quickfire Rapid with Browns. Holy shit, clicky keys are LOUD. Not that it bothers me, but it caught me off guard just how much more vocal it was compared to my other boards.

Being my first time using a board with switches this heavy, I have to say, the 70g actuation on this feels just fine. Now my 55g Topre feels like a light-weight mush in comparison. Life is pain.

>> No.53924190

>>53923116
I used to have one, lasted a good 4 years before several keys started chattering and I had to sell it because I don't know how to solder

But that was back when they were using genuine cherry switches

It's pretty heavy fwiw, and the caps and switches were totally alright.
The ricer layout, well.
One thing to be noted though, if you plan to buy a razer don't, for the love of God, don't install their spyware botnet piece of shit software/driver, which should be reason enough to boycott them in the first place

Isn't something like a ducky zero an option? It's also quite cheap

It obviusly does. Double sided PCBs have pads on both sides as well in the middle. If any solder remain, you will fuck everything when pulling the switch.

Most of us are pretty anal about cleanliness around our keyboards. No eating, especially snacks, unless you use chopsticks.

I also use a little paint brush to clean my keyboard every couple days, and every 10-12 months I take the caps off and do a more thorough cleaning.

finished transplanting stems and caps from old M to the new one,
jesus was the new one filthy underneath, I swear I cleaned a fistful of lint and other garbage but beyond that it's in pristine condition, no spots or snagged springs, nothing.

Converted it from ISO to ANSI and I ended up with no keycaps for the \| keys so I took the umlaut keys the new one came with and put those on instead so I have two dumb smileys there, a :O one and U umlaut one
I think it's quite cute actually

anyway it's good to be back on buckling spring again

I can't speak for everyone but I'd say you're wrong. It's really not all that hard to keep your keyboard clean so long as you're not a complete slob. Some people don't eat at their computer, but once again so long as you're not a child you should be able to eat cleanly. Most people here seem to clean their keyboard(s) often enough to wipe out all the nasty shit. Personally I usually hit it with canned air once a day and then clean it out at the end of the month so it doesn't get too disgusting.
