Keyboards / Getting Alps stabilizers without harvesting from old keyboards?
« Last post by nguyenhimself on Thu, 20 September 2018, 09:27:53 »
So I've been collecting the parts for my custom Alps build, and suddenly I realized that, since I'm planning to buy all the parts from different sources (Alps switches from a guy, keycaps from another guy, etc), I cannot harvest the stabilizers from an old keyboard like most people do.

What are my choices here? Am I forced to buy a vintage Alps keyboard just for the stabilizers?

ok ok ok ok ok people

I will be the first to say I was beyond hype for this set, I msg vox back in January asking him to hurry up with the set, i dont even use gmk and i still bought this set because of how nice I thought it would be, I was so damn hyped

But to say this set is even decent at this point is crazy, the alphas are mint like ****ing mint but those mods are some of the worst mods ive literally ever seen, in almost any lighting they are just black caps and you can't even see the text and the only time you see the mods texts in when the light it directly on the single caps and even then the ****ing legends are still barely readable

so don't go saying this is a good set cause it's not its a failure, The set is not even relatable to the renders we got ( yes i know renders arent always the same)

Like did anyone even ****ing get samples or were yall just like **** it run the set, cause if you had even 1 sample youd have known this **** doesnt cut it for a gmk set

this doesnt even cut it for a cheap pbt set

i bought 2 kits, accent kit, and the mat and tbh the best thing in the gb was the mat  i wish i had just bought like 10 mats because that would have been a better use of my money, id have rather waited 2 months for better mods than a rushed this set

so no one say this set is good or decent cause no its terrible imo it's unusable

Keyboard Keycaps / Re: Kailh BOX Switches Crack and Stress Keycap Stems
« Last post by oHimari on Thu, 20 September 2018, 09:11:07 »

I had put few keycaps from GMK Laser on the new navy switch with fixed stem for a few days.
After I took those keycaps off, I still discover some stress marks on corners of the x-axis.
Those keycaps still fit on other switches, but I'm not sure how it will turn out if I put them on for a month or longer.
I guess without removing those small nubs on the x-axis it's still not completely safe to put GMK caps on box switch?
Matrix with bank gothic and OEM profile please!
Keyboards / Topre 45 or 55g?
« Last post by zippox on Thu, 20 September 2018, 09:10:05 »
I understand it's all preference. But I am used to using Cherry MX blues and was wondering if I were to switch to a Topre keybord, which gram switch would you guys recommend? I currently use a TKL keyboard, and like it. Any suggestions for which Topre keyboard I should keep an eye on and around how much it might be?

Also note that I really enjoy my PBT keycaps. So preferably a keyboard that comes with PBT from the get-go.

I would love to have the set of mods I thought I paid for on hand right now.

I think the additional flex would be more noticeable on a hotswap board as the switches are not soldered in. That said it probably wouldn't be very noticeable when actually typing unless you're pressing extra hard to try to notice the flex. Perhaps heavy enough switches would also make it more noticeable. I tend to use light switches myself.

Cary is considering offering hotswap PCB for Dolch.CR with integrated thick plate. What do you guys think?
