Paid~

Look forward to checking out the clear O-rings. This pretty much confirms my want to build a full clear keyboard. Now which keycaps xD...

Hi Lpwl,

I read the OP and read that the "Fat" O-rings are too thick to be used with "low-profile" keycaps, but then I also saw "If you are using SignaturePlastics keycaps (w/ no crossbar inside), you have to double - sometimes triple - them up."

I have DSA Dolch and DSA PBT Blanks from SP. DSA is a low-medium profile. Will the Fat O-rings work? I think I read something about the crossbar right underneath the top layer of the keycap missing in SP keycaps. I understand that means stacking more O-rings, but is there a fit issue with the width? Can you clarify?

I ordered normal, thin 0.4mm TEX O-rings from Massdrop, but I would like to shorten and soften my key travel distance as much as possible. I'm hoping these Fat O-rings will do nicely.

That's right - these "Fat" O-rings are too thick to be used with Cherry profile keycaps (made by CherryCorp, GMK, BSP or IMSTO).

On the other hand, DSA keycaps (made by SignaturePlastics) work really nicely with O-rings if you are able to stack a few of them on top of each other.

In your case, this setup - one 1.5mm O-ring (for example, one of your TEX O-rings) + one 2.5mm O-ring - would be perfect !



This is exactly what I'm using right now with my DSA Granite set and I'm really enjoying it :p

Just ordered some of each, I have a few unknown spec o-rings on my Ducky which makes my home row sound nicer, but there's still room for improvement which thicker should bring not to mention the rest of the board :)

Thanks for all your feedbacks !

There are still a few bags left (^ 90 pcs) but over the last 3 weeks, nearly ~6k O-rings were sold between Geekhack, Deskthority & /r/MechMarket !

I was not expecting such enthusiasm  ;D

Wow! 6k O-Rings sold in 3 weeks? That's pretty amazing. Just goes to show how easy selling is when you cater to the right market, and beat the pricing on the easy option by half + have more info on your products (your $9.00 O-Rings vs. WASD's $18.00)

Invoice paid! Awaiting shipping notice whenever you get a chance =). If I like these (never used O-Rings before), I might be getting more if (when?) a round 4 rolls around :).

Received, installed, approved!

Still feel a little like a cat with socks on but the sound dampening not only on bottoming out but as well on caps resonance is amazing (and it looks like I'm more pinging keys than bottoming'em out).

Thanks Lpwl!

Hi there !

Welcome to geekhack :D

I had to get things sorted with a new manufacturer regarding the thickest O-rings (pricing - pre-production sample - quality control... et cetera) and my contact in China is ~8 hours ahead of me so it can be tricky to move things forward as quickly as we would like.

Current exchange rate between USD and EURO is also not really helping.

But I'll do my best and I won't start ROUND 4 until everything looks perfect and is ready for dispatch !

TL;DR - WILL START ON : 8th April | 20th April | 4th May

If you were only interested with the thinnest ones (aka Red "Slim") I might be able to help you - right now - please PM me for more detail !



UPDATE :

It's taking more time than I was expecting but there is nothing to worry about !

This is still happening, just bear with me.

:D ;)

UPDATE (2) :

Monday, March 4th is confirmed.

In for a few packs of thin reds and XXL clears :thumb:.

I must say, these things are damn nice and quite well priced when compared to alternatives (like the ones from WASD). Got some from R3 and they're super soft and comfy. They really make typing on a metal plate a lot more enjoyable. I suggest stocking up :D.

I have the thick rings from R2 (not XXL rings) and I find that those are just right for blues. I imagine the XXL rings being too thick but I've never tested it so I don't know

I must confess things have gone out of control yesterday.

I was planning to run this sale over a month b-b-but nearly all my "Thick" & "XXL" O-rings were already taken within a few hours !

Lpwl,

actually I jumped on the Granite and Dolch Key Set from MassDrop so maybe the XXL are better as you stated on 1st post?

I tried the order form but its closed.

would going with the mid ones (think) let me use them with any type of keycap?

Maybe this?
1xThin
1XThick
1X XXL

any recommendations would be appreciated. thanks!

Both solutions are good with DSA keycaps, you can either use one "XXL" O-ring (=3.0mm) or stacking up two O-rings on top of each other (=1.5mm + 2.5mm ⇔ one "Thin" + one "Thick") like this :



Sadly all "Thick" O-rings are now gone but there is still one LAST bag of "XXL" (^110pcs) available.

I'll unlocked the order form in a few minutes.

Good luck~

For those wondering, I would definitely go with the XXL for any DSA sets you have (or any SP sets really). The issue with SP sets isn't actually a difference in profile, it's the fact that the caps are missing crossbars in them, like classic cherry ones have. The crossbars in classic cherries, take up 25-50% of the area underneath the cap, which works perfectly with O-Rings. When you remove those crossbars, you need a good deal more area. For my tests, using just one thick clear O-Ring had a very minimal effect on my DSA caps and higher row DCS caps (it worked pretty well for the bottom row DCS caps though), but the second I added a second, thin, red O-Ring, everything felt just about perfect. It might have been a bit too much even... meaning the XXL's are perfect, since they're right in between a single thick clear and a thick clear + a thin red. But, you couldn't go wrong with a set of thick clears and thin reds. Together those solve just about all SP problems and, separately, they still handle Cherry profile caps fine :thumb:.

Excite for these to ship lpwl!

I was planning to run this sale over a month b-b-but nearly all my "Thick" & "XXL" O-rings were already taken within a few hours !


Hey, a few can be up to 8 or 10! So, I still totally qualify! And, thanks for providing the service. I'm really glad these are selling so fast and this is working out so well for you :).

Lpwl,

actually I jumped on the Granite and Dolch Key Set from MassDrop so maybe the XXL are better as you stated on 1st post?

I tried the order form but its closed.

would going with the mid ones (think) let me use them with any type of keycap?

Maybe this?
1xThin
1XThick
1X XXL

any recommendations would be appreciated. thanks!

For those wondering, I would definitely go with the XXL for any DSA sets you have (or any SP sets really). The issue with SP sets isn't actually a difference in profile, it's the fact that the caps are missing crossbars in them, like classic cherry ones have. The crossbars in classic cherries, take up 25-50% of the area underneath the cap, which works perfectly with O-Rings. When you remove those crossbars, you need a good deal more area. For my tests, using just one thick clear O-Ring had a very minimal effect on my DSA caps and higher row DCS caps (it worked pretty well for the bottom row DCS caps though), but the second I added a second, thin, red O-Ring, everything felt just about perfect. It might have been a bit too much even... meaning the XXL's are perfect, since they're right in between a single thick clear and a thick clear + a thin red. But, you couldn't go wrong with a set of thick clears and thin reds. Together those solve just about all SP problems and, separately, they still handle Cherry profile caps fine :thumb:.

Excite for these to ship lpwl!

Thank you for that.

By the way, shipping notice incomiiiiiiing !

This is quite cool. I currently use blue o-rings to ease RSI pain, nice to see another option that may be better. So the best ones to get are the thickest (XXL) ones yeah? Any reason one wouldn't get the thickest? Like perhaps they are worse for gaming or something.

There is no "best" size :)  To quote the OP:

Before reading any further, you must ask yourself ONE question :


      > What profile keycaps will I be putting these O-rings on ?

       If you are using "low-profile" keycaps, the thinnest O-rings should be great.
       If you are using stock keycaps (standard / OEM profile), you may want to use some thicker O-rings.
       If you are using DSA keycaps (no cross-bar support), my new "XXL" O-rings are specially made for you !


   Having trouble identifying your keycaps :

   [1] This article from Keychatter.com will probably help you.
   [2] Jacobolus also made this wonderful compilation.

   If you are still not sure, it will be my pleasure to answer you as quickly as possible !

Yeap, the "XXL" ones (=3mm) were specially made for being used with DSA keycaps.

I didn't encounter any problem using these "XXL" O-rings with my CODE keyboard (stock keycaps = OEM profile) but just to be sure, I would recommend you the "thick" ones (=2.5mm) instead.

Ah, thanks guys. I somehow missed that part of the OP. Thinking I will try out the "thick" as recommended. Yay for RSI reduction.

I'd love to get a 125 pc set of these.  Any idea how well the XXL 3mm rings will work on a Corsair k70?  I'd REALLY like to minimize travel.  Been using low profile rubber dome keyboards prior to this.  With this mechanical keyboard, I love the feel of the press, and the keycaps actually, but they go down for miles.

Careful there !

These REAAAAALLY thick O-rings ("XXL" ones = 3.0mm) in combination with the stock keycaps (OEM profile) of your Corsair K70 keyboard will start to edge into the engineered tolerance of the actuation point of your key switches and as a consequence, you may not be able to actuate every switch comfortably.

You don't want that !  ;)
