Hey longweight,
Something I've been wondering since first seeing the K60... could it be modded to be fully mechanical?  i.e. would a cherry switch fit in the cutout where the rubber domes poke through?  I know there would be a few other hurdles to get past a well (i.e. spider web of wires...), but if the switch won't fit, that kinda ends the idea right there...

Thanks!

I'm not too sure! It's a possibility but I didn't take it apart to have a look. Do rubberdomes have the same pinout as MX switches?

No, you would need to run wires to each switch and then run them back to the circuit board. I assume there is some sort of connector between the RD and main board. Would be quite a challenge, but possible. But again if the switches wouldn't fit, it would be a show stopper.

If I ever see one for cheap, I might give it a go...
