Perfect pic to start, since I have a related question. I took the kb out the hunk of plastic because the zmk500 is way too tall for me, and while it makes a huge difference in terms of feedback and noise (for the better), is it okay to keep it out just like that? I don't eat next to the pc or anything like that, so other than dust no risk of getting it dirty. I added a few rubber feet to the back to rise it, the pcb is sitting on a towel, not directly on the desk.

For some reason the Ducky keyboards are 20 bucks more expensive then what they are supposed to be but the Ducky One is $99 and has a few extra features like a backlight and macros on mechanicalkeyboards.com

If you want to stick on amazon then you have E-Element which make knock offs of corsair keyboards. They have all sorts of model so pick one that you like.

Now if you don't like the look of corsair then Monoprice is another option

And there are also other keyboards from CM

If you want a specific look and style for your keyboard just say so.

I want these and capacitive buckling springs to be available in mainstream keyboards.

Matias switches are a good start but they're only simplified whites and lack the beefy construction of complicated blues.

Likewise modelfkeyboards is the only place making capacitive springs but the premium is too high and the faux retro design just isn't very useful, especially when the bezel defeats the purpose of the compact version.

How snug are PCB mount switches supposed to sit?
I just got my GH60 in the mail, and the switches I got were PCB mount (still going to have a plate for mounting, waiting on that in the mail), the switches do not go into the slots properly, which was to be expected (Gateron switches have been reported to do this), so I need to sand down the pegs some, but I'm uncertain by how much. I could just clip them off but I don't see the point when I can just sand them.
Is it supposed to be snug? Should there be some wiggle?

>> No.57037156


That's the problem. We need based Chin to fire up the child labor.

lets be honest here there isn't enough demand. This switches are complicated and use a lot of material, even more then cherry so quality control, cost of materials, and production time all need to be higher. This results in an expesnive switch that wont sell as much since everyone believes cherry mx are the best mechanical keyboards out there.

Good luck w/ that... The 6GV2 uses an incredibly non-standard layout with a bigass enter key.

I don't even necessarily like that style of keyboard but those caps and that case look really, really nice.

Ah, I had a dream I owned a keyset in brown and orange like this

Feels bad

>> No.57074321

I have a 101-key with black space invaders I took apart for cleaning and there was nothing unusual about it. A few screws held the case together and two held the PCB to the bottom shell. The keycaps lever off easily and stabilizers don't need to be unclipped from caps.

I could see someone having trouble if they used a key puller though. NMB caps are removed by levering to unclip, not pulled straight up.

Oi m8s

I just bought my first MKG. I am typing on it now. Never typed on one before. Can anyone tell me what the big whoop is? It actually takes me longer to type the key since the depression distance is higher, and consequently I type slower than my low profile apple keyboard.

What gives? Did I fall for the meme?

Is the massdrop blank pbt keycaps any good?
I found similar keycap in aliexpress and wondering if I should order from ali instead.

I'm using the same keyboard right now and it's a joy to use. I like Apple aluminum keyboards but they cramp my hands, and I think it's because of the steepness.

Give it a week.

You dont need to fully depress the key for it to register.

Dunno but I recently bought some keycaps from Ali for $24.
Options were side print, top print, and blank. Hopefully these turn out blank.

Aren't you the one complaining about the travel distance? Well, typically scissor switches actuate at 2.3mm (at bottom). Cherry switches actuate at half travel, 2mm. Cant the how the difference is "negligle".

Btw, gaterons actuate even higher.

There's one running in massdrop.
Alternatively you can look for some at aliexpress.
