how do i fix a blue switch that has become loud as fuck? do i have to desolder and open it up? or can i lube it from outside? what do

>> No.56906295

>>56906269
is the switch broken, as in if you press it nothing shows up? or is it just too loud for you. If so you can just get some dampeners

>> No.56906328

>>56906295
it works, it's just that the click is excessively sharp and loud compared to the other switches. i'm not sure dampeners would help since it's the click, it's not the bottoming out that's the problem.

>> No.56906394

>>56906328
If its only that one then buy another switch. Maybe you don't need to desolder it and its just the plunger and stem that's broken and you can easily replace those

Yeah, you can lube from the outside. You have high chances of killing the click completely tho.

there is not much benefit to NOT having backlighting, at "best" it's a matter of preference, if the lights give you sensory overload and triggers your autistic rage then fine you don't need them, but if someone knows they want backlighting you're a dick if you keep shitting on them for it

No. Acetal is literally just the short name for polyoxymethylene.
You might be thinking about the fact that some brand name plastics are more specific formulations of POM; eg, Delrin.

As for a carcinogen, you may, again, be thinking of something else. The only connection is that making POM requires formaldehyde, which is a potential carcinogen.

POM has been used in plumbing fixtures, and the only problem with that is that chlorine can cause it to degrade, which makes it physically weaker, but does not release anything Generally Accepted as Toxic.
