Buying switches in the UK
« on: Sat, 09 January 2021, 13:22:28 »
I'm trying to buy a small handful some misc switches, roughly 10 of each probably, but of the only two sites that seemed to make sense for that were MechboardsUK and Mykeyboard which Mykeyboard (being EU based) is currently not shipping to UK, and Mechboards is out of stock for those particular ones (which, will of course change... I hope)

Is there any other sites or something I'm missing, was looking at some Kailh and Gateron switches.

Unless his site is setup elsewhere to auto update the year at the bottom it seems fine, atleast in the HTML there's nothing (although I can't say I know an absurd amount about HTML) so I might just try it as is

edit: just did another check, and realised no inks sadly, might still grab a set from there though
