LF: Keyboard Modder
« on: Thu, 03 April 2014, 12:14:00 »
I'm looking for someone to mod a ducky shine 2 full-size.

I'd like to make the following changes:

Swap from black mx to clear mx
Lube said clear switches.
Swap from orange leds to red leds
Paint the plate flat white. (or red, still looking for a pic of what red leds look like on a red plate. White leds on white plate looks amazing!)

As far as materials go, if you can source them it would be nice, but I wouldn't mind getting them.
I know I can get the clears from mechanicalkeyboards. Stickers and lube, not so sure, I think I saw someone in a thread mention Victorinox and/or Krytox?
LEDs, I'd need a nudge in the correct direction. Not sure what the style led does not have a square bottom (that needs to be filed off to fit).


Why can't I just do all of this myself? My left arm is like a vibrator when trying to do small precision work. I saw a YouTube video of someone stickering their switches and I almost cried having to do that for all 104 switches.

Please shoot me a PM if you can help me out.

Thanks,

-Blacke

OOPS: Forgot to add, LF someone in the CONT US.

As somebody who is currently stickering and lubing clears, I feel you here haha.

Not too picky on sticker color. Looking to add them for the stability. If I had a choice though, red, white or pink.

I'm not currently taking any new work, but I will tell you that if I was, I would charge a bunch for stickering. It's so very time consuming. Also, it adds very little to the build, and I try to discourage people from getting stickers when I can. But some people just have to have them, for the aesthetic.

As to increased stability, you will never ever notice a difference in actual use.

Thank you for the link! Unfortunately, I'd like to keep it in the cont US to cut down on shipping time. (Added that to original post)

He's probably busy. I talk to him on a regular basis, and haven't spoken to him in awhile. Maybe give him some time.

This stickied thread should really be kept up-to-date more :(
http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=45886.0

It's supposed to give links to the currently offered services, but there are quite a few names that I've not seen around for quite some time.  Seems like people who offer modding service don't offer it for long.

Seems like people who offer list services don't offer them for long.
