Background Introduction
Hello everyone, I am Keebaholics. Some of you might know me as the Project Manager for ALLCAPS Keyboard and Accessories in Australia. While I still work there, I feel it is time to have my own space to work on projects I love. Hence, TORO Studio came to life with the help of my friends. Cheesecake Switch is the first project the studio release to the public but there will be more to come. We have another 2 projects in the prototype phase and more information will be released soon. Please join our discord to be updated with the latest information.

Switch Information
Not just keyboard but I also share a great passion for food. My favourite dessert was Strawberry Cheesecake. Also, as a tactile fan, I love the Holy Panda. However, my fingers are weak and I can't type on them for long. Hence, I try to make a switch that retains the goodness of the Holy Panda but is more comfortable to type on even for a long period. That was the whole inspiration for me to make this switch a reality.



Compare the Strawberry Cheesecake switch against Holy Panda and Bsun Hutt tactile switch, it is slightly more prominent than the Drop Holy Panda and more prominent and rounded compared to the Bsun Hutt.

Switch specification:Top Housing: POK. Patone 11-0510 TPG
Bottom Housing: POK. Pantone 4026C
Stem: 13.7mm LY Stem. Pantone 19-1763 TPG

Factory lube: Yes. Factory lubrication will be applied on the stem rails and bottom housing sliders. No Lube will be applied on the Stem Leg. Dry film oil will be applied on the spring instead of oil to prevent the oil dripping down to the bottom of the housing.

Switch photos:These are real photos taken from the prototypes I had. I don't know how to render so yeah lol

VendorsTo ensure the broadest reach for the switches, I will be collaborating with many vendors worldwide. This ensures that as many people can purchase this switch at the lowest possible shipping. If more vendors from other regions wish to collaborate, you can contact me and we might be able to work something out.

Whether this switch should be offered as in-stock or pre-order is still under consideration. The quantity will be limited (depending on how many switches each vendor decides to order). While I understand the frustration of waiting, I might consider having the switch go live as a quick pre-order to help out vendors financially.

Switch will be launched under the Pre-Order format now. Pre-orders launched on May 20th and will last for 2 weeks. The pre-order price will be 0.4usd (exclusive of regional tax) and in-stock extra price will be 0.5usd (exclusive of regional tax). The majority of the switches have been produced by BSUN. The final quantity will be finalised after the preorder. Any extra quantity will be produced (So this is somewhat still a limited pre-order rather than an unlimited). This ensure the fastest possible delivery to all vendors and customers
