Hello everyone!
« on: Thu, 02 May 2024, 15:59:54 »
Hello! I am GummyPinkGraphics and ready to immerse my self in your world. It started with my boyfriend needing a sleeve for his mechanical keyboard. In the meantime I already bought my self 2 keyboards...

Welcome to geekhack  :)

What keyboards have you got?

cherry blacks - unlubed - filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - alu Plate | pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.

lubed with tribosys 3203 | like topre a lot, prefer it lubed but did make less tactile but that might have been a skill issue. probably will get more tactile over time as the domes age.
| m0115

bad orange alps lol | definitely needs a restoration. planning on wax boiling them and maybe a replacement pcb because the board has only 2 key rollover apparently.
| praxis

gateron yellows - lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.
| camo filco

stock with silent reds | Pretty cool looking board, the silent reds are actually good, they are smooth and I don't mind the mushiness (it's not even that mushy as well). the layout is pretty weird, but is useable. will probably mod this in the future. maybe a pcb and plate swap, change the keycaps to something dolch like, and also spring swap the springs in the silent reds.

Thanks. A Ducky TKL and an aigo a100. Apparently it is unpopular, but I am looking for a good 100% mechanical keyboard.

The reason why they are unpopular is because it's too big, but I specifically don't like full sizes cause of the layout, I use really small keyboards (60% boards) and stuff like layers I'm just too used to. If you are looking for good 100% then there are a couple options though.

there a lot of vintage keyboards in that layout, stuff like the IBM model m and the apple extended keyboard I (specifically the m0115) model are pretty good keyboards. Model M's can be found for pretty good deals on places like ebay, but if you want to buy something newer than unicomp has buckling spring full sizes on their website that are still good. If you are gonna get the m0115 try to get a clean one, the switches in the boards, alps are very susceptible to dust and bad ones feel really bad.
