Cherry switches... ever wonder???

karlito:
If you could take a cherry switch from one keyboard and put it into another?
What they look like on the inside?




















Now you know. I have a lot of soldering ahead of me and one big question do I make easier to press linear switches by putting the blue stem springs into the black stem switches or just stick w/ the blue stem switches...

I'll post back if and when I finish replacing all the switches on the SMK-88.

You are now my personal idol. That is all I have to say.

mr_sf_applet:
Wow. Just wow.

victheslik:
I use to think making those IBM Model M keyboards into the Das looking ones were hardcore... but this just takes it to another level, props karlito props to you!  :twisted:

Awesome. So you couldn't wait and went ahead with the transplant? Will you do all the keys?
