interest checks / Re: [IC] Alps Party 3-60(%)
« Last post by CPTBadAss on Wed, 02 September 2015, 13:53:57 »
FWIW, I was able to purchase two Apple M0116 keyboards from ebay for about $30 shipped, each. One has very clean salmon ALPS, an the other has dirty orange ALPS. From my understanding cleaning ALPS switches is kind of a PITA, but you might get lucky and get a clean board. 

A bit extra work to get some complicated ALPS, but I'm not crazy about newer Matias switches. They don't feel as good as complicated ALPS, IMO.

I will be working on hunting down some SKCM Blue ALPS for this build.

Shouldn't be too hard to clean them honestly. You don't have to desolder Alps switches to open them up, which makes things easier if you're lazy.

Hmm, may consider this.  I really should have paid attention when CPTBadAss smothered me with Alps info...   :-[   No clue what switches I would want...

This is why we can't have nice things. I try to help you out but pfft :P

The 200 count box is the baseline price at $50+$10.  You can get a better deal at a reseller for that quantity.  He also offers a 4800 count carton with a more reasonable unit price.

A reseller?  O.o  I poked around a few of the reseller links on Matias' site, but only found keyboards for sale, not switches.  Any help on where to find them?  :D 

Thanks for the info on bulk prices, that basically puts an end to that discussion.  :))

The reseller link for the US is here, and the link for Europe is here.

I went ahead and requested a quote for the bulk prices.  It doesn't hurt to ask, they might be able to hook us up with a mix and match carton of switches.

Thanks for the links.  :thumb:  Looks like the resellers are actually more expensive though?  O.o  33 cents per switch at reseller vs 25 cents per switch straight from Matias.

More like $0.30 from Matias when you factor in the shipping cost.  The resellers will be more expensive (they want to make a profit), but if you are buying 200 switches for a 60 switch board, you might benefit from a smaller purchase.

Someone might still have an Alps switch tester if you plan on scavenging.  I can't wait to put my Linear Greens on something though.

What sort of clacks could I expect to get in trades for these. Single colours/bis/tris/etc. They're all newer/rarely seen clacks, so I'm not too sure what to expect.

Topre candy corn skull + candy corn fn
MX ice blue translucent
MX lime green GID

Whatever you can get, not all CV keys have the same quality as the CCs without the CV markings.

Huh?
I also agree with Huh? What do you mean quality wise?

I would like to know if there's any more info. Any! Even a pic of progress.
Not too much of a rush, though. Gotta set aside money for assembly and shipping, still.

Also, anyone interested yet in doing a small Zealio GB for the Jane? I myself want to do purple 65g.

You guys are awesome, thanks for the quick responses.

The response from the KBP team seems to ignore that screw mount where the punch-out seems to be over. I wonder if its also an issue with running a screw through pcb components or what not. They commented on screw mount #1.

HEEEEYYY!!!!

CPTBadAss and Binge hooked me UP!  ;D ;D


I'm super super grateful for this. It was a bummer not having my Santa come through and I'm sorry that some of you all had to pick up the slack. I was pretty much planning on never joining a GH santa thing again but the kindness and awesome spirit of some of you fine folks more than makes up for the poor actions (or inaction!) of others. I continuously tell people that GH has the highest concentration of cool people on like, the whole internet. THANK YOU!!

anyway! here is my super secret surprise summer santa -

Show Image



Binge showed me these in person last week and they are super sweet. Don't quit the secret santa, never quit the secret santa!

We have some bad eggs, but most of us are cool people. At least sometimes.
