guess I wasn't being very clear, but can I please also get a PC on individual clear switches?

thx  ;D

I've paid mostly somewhere around $0.75-0.80/switch

These were new plate mount.

How many do you need? Or perhaps you are selling?

I've got a few used clears that would go much cheaper than the above price.

thinking about modding my QFR into clears some time in the future once I'm not lazy and feel confident about my soldering skills

You might be able to find one of those TG3-82 boards with Clears for a reasonable price, if you're open to used switches.  I got one off of eBay for $50, so that's about .60 per switch.

I was wondering how much I should expect paying for a MX Super Black. Have never seen one for sale here.

Bumping this question (is that allowed?).

Basically a very heavy MX Black. There's the ballpen mod but I would prefer an orginial one.

Super blacks are pretty hard to find, I would guess $5-10/ea. You can get lucky with some of the old TTY like the minicomIV, about 50% chance to get one on the spacebar. Those are a lot easier to find for cheap unlike the few G80 models that have and I'm not aware of which other makes might.

I'm no expert, but I might pay $40-50 if I was looking for that color. They seem to be in good condition. I think they sell for about $70 NIB.

What's a Hapster worth?

Looking back through the classifieds most were auctioned and went anywhere from $15-$40 with a few at $25. (Some had other keys included also)

I'm not sure if they've ever been 'for sale' anywhere. Probably before my time.

Please enlighten me. I have wanted a hapster for a while now and have not ever saw a place I could just go buy one.

I really did search the classifieds.

Yes but that's just it.....they were offered as bait to get people to buy the 'other' things hence they are valuable.

If they were $3 from techkey.us that would be one thing but like I said you can't just go buy one.

they have been used to entice people to buy stuff recently, but that wasnt the point behind them, there is an entire thread about it if people care to search, i now have 2 hapsters, and they make me very happy, and the miami hapsters are coming soon

i hope that hapsters in general never come up for general sale

I've gotten several responses. I'm going to hold onto it until I know more about it. It has attracted some serious attention for just being a single keycap.

KBTalking pure, red switch, purple backlight with PBT caps?

Dad wants to have it, doesn't allow me to straight up give it to him so I need a price :/
I'm thinking having him to wait till GH80 finishes then have me build a board entirely to his likings so I might up selling this anyway.

Filco with 62g Ergo-Clears, a phantom-style (solderless switch swapping) plate, a ATmega32u4 controller, plate mount Cherry stabs, and yellow LEDs. Includes extra Cherry stabs and a full Costar set.

I set a price at $210, but obviously that's high.

I would say $180 is the least amount I would sell it for, but seeing as how much work you've put into it $210 sounds like a good price to me. That would of course depend on how used it is and if it comes with caps or not?

I don't believe it comes with keycaps.  I did consider putting in an offer since I am about to do a 62g clears mod on a qfr.  Even though I already bought everything, I would rather have a the filco and either sell my stuff/keep for later.

Looking for a rough price check on the R, W & B buckling spring clacks from the latest CC sale. I'm not selling mine or anything, just looking for a rough $ value so I can better judge possible trades.
