Any mods to remove wobbling?
« on: Tue, 23 July 2019, 17:17:43 »
I have a bunch of leftover Cherry Clear switches that I want to use on a build (and since it will be my first build, I will use what I already have at hand).

Compared to my current keyboard (Zilents) I find the Clears very wobbly - Are there any mods or hacks to improve this? I already plan to disassemble them to lube...

Place these on the bottom housing before you close each switch after modding.

Switch films sound good, but the stem itself has a lot of wobble - any way to improve that?

Short of a different switch housing, there isn't much you can do.

Lubing all around the sliders will help at least with the *sound of* switch wobble.

There has also been the self-adhesive variety: "switch stickers", "sticker modding".
