I fixed the spacebar and now it returns just fine. I guess I'm a fucking brainlet and one of the stabilizer feet was fucked up causing resistance. I still think I'm gonna swap the switch out for a cherry green cause I hammer the piss out of my spacebar so I think a nice stiff clicky switch would be a top meme for this board. If I could find some nice olive green pbt caps I would nut cause then it would a lot more like I wanted it to turn out. Problem is most caps are shit tier and hard to find in the colors you want and the vendors are all niggers and assdrop is just asking to cuck yourself with a 4 month wait.

I clean my room (sweeping and dusting) every two days, and vacuum once a week, and my keyboard and mouse still get really dusty. Just look at this shit I just cleaned yesterday and it's already filthy with dust!

Yeah, thing is before I bought my current keyboard I also didn't have my laptop. My previous laptop had a numpad, as did my previous keyboard.

I have no clue what the people who buy TKL and other compact keyboards do with their machines, because I find the numpad to be essential.

Yeah, "left-handed" design with numpad or even navigation on the left side might be nice if you feel that letters are too far to the left (as in my case: I use low sensitivity mouse and large pad - but I'm currently falling for 60% meme)

I might try to find a left handed keyboard in the future, right now I use a huge mousepad with 45cm/360, so I angle my keyboard a bit.

It's not that big of a waste of space when the keyboard already has this big area on the top of the top row that's basically used by nothing. So cramming a few buttons and a roller there isn't a bad idea. Personally I love the roller and have gotten very used to it. Rolls very smoothly too, however not as smooth as a know on a DAS for example.

I live in a very dusty area. If the house isn't cleaned very regularly it looks like it's been abandoned.

>> No.61981814

>It's not that big of a waste of space when the keyboard already has this big area on the top of the top row that's basically used by nothing.
Yeah, but I already find that whole keyboard design a waste of space. I love my 60%. I think they could probably be as space efficient with an 80% or 100% and no one would really complain. My keys go to the edge of my board. I think that's part of what makes 60% keyboards look so attractive.

>> No.61981886

Yeah, also if you have a shitty small desk like me and a TKL allows you to have more than 10 cms of space to move your mouse you'll appreciate it, trust me.

Also my KBParadise V80 has very few waste of space in it's design, it's very great. Fuck small dicked americans and their obsession for retarded big things to compensate their inferiority complexes. I'll just use whatever I'm comfortable with. I use a big phone as I have big hands and it doesn't bother me, but I wouldn't buy a SUV or another big ass expensive car when my Renault Clio takes me everywhere and is also easier to park.

>> No.61981913

I'm American and also bothered by the big things obsession. I generally find that watching anime is more comfortable at my desk on a 22-24" monitor than on a very large (65") TV in the living room, for example, although other things come into play here, such as getting to use headphones.

My job isn't data entry per se but I do data entry often, mostly for testing forms and processes and other similar things.
I also do calculations and stuff very often, for which the numpad comes in very handy (however I am thinking about buying one of those USB mech keyboard calculators someone posted in here).

Also for some of the games I play the numpad comes in handy, mostly flight sims, where having macros on the numpad is actually really nice.

Doesn't everyone here say PBT is your best bet? They don't shine over time and are durable. POM is better but significantly more expensive and hard to find.

It will be very hard to find sets like that because white on black requires either double shot molding or reverse dye sublimation, and both are rare since the former is hard with PBT, and the second doesn't seem to be a thing yet.

Because of that, dye sublimation is the only common way of creating quality legends on PBT keycaps, so vast majority of good sets will have legends that are darker than the keycaps.

The design with the numpad on the right was concieved when mice weren't a thing. Nowadays we need space on the right of the keyboard to place the mouse so the natural thing to do is move the keyboard to the left.
However, that makes the home row offset and typing becomes a pain in the ass. If the numpad is on the left the more important parts of the keyboard can be centered in front of the user and still allow for comfortable mouse use.

However, Russian Federation as the country that inherited nuclear arsenal and took all debts of USSR upon itself is clearly Second World while the rest of Comecon republics can be argued as Second or Third world.

Dying is an additive process, so you CAN dye anything but black. However, getting the result you are expecting may be difficult if you aren't starting with pure white. And sometimes even if you are.

I've dyed beige plastic and it came out great, pic related bottom left. What color are you trying to do?

Haven't decided the color yet, I have to really think about it before I dye them. I'm going for this look but replacing the grey with a different color.

Like I said, because you're starting with something other than white, the color you end up with will still contain what the starting color was. If you add blue for example, you will end up with beige-blue caps. You would have to counteract the beige by adding an amount of opposing color. Figuring out what that mix is will be the tricky part, and it would be best if you had a sacrificial set or at least a few keys to experiment with before you do the whole batch.

tl;dr You will have to experiment with dye color mixes and boil time, you cannot guess the correct recipe beforehand.

I wish Magpul would release their secret recipe or else make key cap sets themselves, their blend is EXTREMELY durable.

If mechanical switches outlast membranes in lifetime use, why do people need 7 keyboards

I own a filco and a leopold TKL and I prefer the filco.

>I like the costar stabilizers better than the cherry ones on the leopold
>The case on the filco feels like it's higher quality plastic and the edges are sharper

My leopold didn't come with PBT keycaps though and it's probably an older model at this point.

Some of my ABS caps have got ridges on WASD because my keyboard hand is like a claw when I play games and mostly my nails hit keys. My nails are short it's just how my fingers rest.

Will this ever happen to PBT? I just got some nice dyesubs and I don't want them ruined too.

Maybe I have to quit

If you ever actually worked with a computer, you'd need a numpad.

You can just heat up the solder joints and push it down, it's an easy problem to fix
