Take these crap MX Blue switches off my hands
« on: Wed, 03 September 2014, 23:30:20 »
Some of you may know I got burned pretty bad on some crap switches.


I am loaded to the gils with Cherry MX Blue switches (Plate mount design without pegs) that have a high percentage of flawed units.  All work in terms of circuitry, but the most prominent problem is that most don't properly make the audible click.  Some are just fine.  All of them have some tinning on the leads which leads me to believe they were harvested (despite the distributor insisting they were tinned to avoid oxidation)


There is definitely salvage in these, so I am offering them at stupid low prices.


$.06 per switch + shipping.  Shipping will depend on CONUS vs International and depend on quantity.


PM me if interested.

If you had blacks or clears at these prices I would be buying these by the gallon.

I realize I told a lot of people I was out of these, but I just found 150 left in the back of my closet.

PM me if you would like buy them for the super low price of .06 + shipping.
