>Actually, what would you need capacitors for?

Depends on the circuit design. It could be for filtering, timing or something else the IC needs a burst of charge for. If it's just a filter cap you may be able to get away with something slightly different.

Both the cap and dome move. Technically the graphite pad is another part which moves with the dome, much in the same way the conical spring does under a topre dome. Or in the case of an air gap membrane, the membrane also moves.

In each case there is no physical mechanism that actuates to close the switch. You're either squashing contacts together directly with force or triggering a capacitive sensor.

I think we can agree that this is the most aesthetically pleasing setup, right? White keycaps for the letters, numbers, and puncuation, then black for the rest. Only question is, should the black keycaps be blank or lettered as well?

I would prefer to get a new keyboard.

This way it would be immediately available, so I can just buy it and have a warranty. Rather than risking broken shit from ebay, having to deal with disputes and not having the keyboard I want.

Old keyboards you get out of thrift stores and off ebay are always fucking filthy. I'd rather not have to tear the thing apart and clean it. Knowing my luck I'd probably break something in the process.

Something new will also have a modern layout and possibly other useful features.

The switches would be brand new and not have an unknown amount of wear and tear, nor dirt or other crap inside the switches.

I'm not talking about an ISO enter. It's a left-pointing, non-inverted L and it usually means the backspace has to be 1 unit to fit in the backslash, or it has to get shoved somewhere else. So many white alps boards you can get ahold of have that layout because of their age.

They usually stick it to the right of the shift, shrinking the right shift by 1u. Not as bad as making the backspace tiny and putting it up there but it's still not a great place for it when coding.

Looks like there's more to the LEDs than just solid light at various levels of brightness. There's a breathing mode, a "reactive" mode (all the LEDs flicker when you press a key) that's annoying as shit, and a breathing mode.

If you want cherry tactile greys your options are very limited. This was the only one I could find in stock, and its almost out https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1104.

portable keyboards are a niche market and as such they tend to be more expensive. There are however Chinese knock offs that sell for $40. The major difference that mechanical keyboards really offer is durability. An IBM model F has 100,000,000 key presses before its supposed to break compared to the ~2 million of rubber domes. The feel is something completely subjective and differs from person to person. I had a slight WPM improvement when i switched to mechanical

I have laptops at home with 7 years of consistent use and not one key is broken. My desktop's keys are kinda clunky though, even after cleaning (5 years use). I feel like I have to press harder or slap my current laptop's keys (ThinkPad), so I think I'd like a softer keyboard. But fuck me, I don't feel like dishing out 60€+. I'll look into those 40€, but I'm afraid of chink shit.

rubber dome keyboards don't really have durability issues and they're really cheap to replace anyway, and mech keyboards can easily get problems with chattering and such

Wait until I build a bigger one and I'll mill you a PCB, a mounting plate and even a case for as cheap as I can make it.

Or just get all the components necessary to build one, you can find various kits and single components all over the place, depending on what form factor you're looking for.

Though building your own can easily be more expensive than a pre-built option. Depends a lot on your access to materials and tools and what components you choose.

Your local home depot or equivalent thereof for construction materials for the case and the plate.

Aliexpress for anything else. You can find anything from kits that only require you to put stuff together and to solder it, to the very basic components such as controllers, diodes and wires and the like.

I'll be using glass fibre boards with both-sides copper layers for cutting keyboard PCBs, since you can't really get a switch matrix going on a PCB without having at least two layers to work with. I'd imagine you could also etch a PCB with those instead of cutting it.

Switches and keycaps can also be sourced from aliexpress.

>>56680706
Not that difficult. ECAD if fairly simple business if all you want to do is make a double-sided switch matrix. You can find all the information of switch sizes, pin spacing and spacing on the mounting plate on the internet, but I'd recommend having a keyboard and a switch on hand anyway so you can measure things out by hand just to make, especially given the atrocity that Cherry's datasheets are.

Designing a mounting plate with CAD software shouldn't be that difficult either. I haven't looked into that a whole lot yet, but I can't imagine a 2D plane full of holes being very complicated business.

Otherwise you can also do that the lazy way and use this here http://builder.swillkb.com/

That's ISO layout, keep that in mind.

>I want arrow keys, navigation keys and numpad are a minus for me
That's a form factor of anywhere between 65% and 75%.
Chinese stuff like Noppoo Choc Mini, Magicforce68, or Ajazz AK33 are your best bet here for mechs that aren't complete poop, but none of these are ISO layout. There's the CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid-I which shouldn't be too hard to find in NL I think, but that's 80% (tenkeyless, TKL) so slightly bigger and might be a bit more expensive. The Chinese stuff you can find on aliexpress if you go that route.

Hey /mkg/

Getting my first mechanical board soon and I want to get a ducky shine 5 (the 6 looks awful)

I'm deciding between the brown and nature white switches on it. My home computer is used primarily for web browsing and vidya.

Any advice on which switch to get?

>> No.56685181 [DELETED] 

>>56685127
get it with white switches. Since you are at home no one will mind the noise

>> No.56685208

>>56685181
No its the nature white switches. After Googleing it I learned they are different than the clears. They are more like a middle ground in terms of actuation force between a red and black.

Tbh I got a switch tester and blue was too loud for my taste. Especially since I have an open mic often for discord

Hi /g/
My K70 is fucked
I wanna replace it with something a little less GAMUR and aesthetically pleasing
I've got $400 but I'd prefer staying in the 100-200 range
Full keyboards are nice but I really don't know when the last time I touched my numpad. Not in a while says the dust.
I don't care about LEDs, neat touch but not essential and I rarely remember I have them on
I'd like ANSI
I enjoy the brown switches I've been using
I'm from the US.
Thank you for your help!

A Din5 connector can carry one of several protocols. If it's AT and the keyboard is also PS/2-aware then you can get away with a passive AT to PS/2 converter connected to an active PS/2 to USB converter.
