Hello, I made a variant of the jailhouse clicky switch, maybe that you can tell me what you think about it.https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=68698.new
I "jailhoused" with o-rings three white switches. I chose whites because I haven't already yet received the blues...
- do you think that the jailhouse is good only for blues, or also for green and whites? What are the differences? For what I've seen the black part (second picture) is different in the blues/green/whites.
- do you think that this mod is durable, or will it break very soon?
Result of the experiments, I mounted the switches on a plate, then I installed the keycaps whitout o-rings:
- switch 1 doesn't make nearly any sound when bottomed or released (just a little upstroke sound), there is a little bump when pressing, like a clear switch
- switch 2 clicks a little bit, no sound when bottoming, more noise in the upstroke compared to 1 and 2, experiment failed
- switch 3 doesn't make nearly any sound when bottomed or released (upstroke more silent than 1), there is a very little bump when pressing (less than a brown), it is nearly a linear switch, this is the best one
inside diameter 6.05mm
outside diameter 8.3mm
inside diameter 5.1
outside diameter 8.2
gap between fixed and mobile part 1.3mm
white stem - bigger rectangle 7.2mm x 5.6mm
white stem - under the rectangle, where the o-ring goes 5.4mm x 2.9mm, so the ideal o-ring should have a inside diameter smaller than (5.4*2+2.9*2)mm/3.14=16.6mm/3.14=5.28mm (maybe 3mm would be ideal?
) and have a thickness smaller 1.7mm when extended
mobile part (black) 6.7mm x 5.4mm
