PBT SA Shinethrough?
« on: Mon, 11 January 2021, 00:57:19 »
I'm looking for SA profile keys that have a textured finish and shine through.
From what I've seen, that really means I should be looking for key caps with a PBT surface.

Can anyone point me in the direction of PBT SA profile keycaps with shinethrough?

Also, I have ordered the KBD75 PCB, is there anything I need to know moving forward looking for keycaps that will match the PCB?

The only shine through PBT caps I was able to find a few months ago.

I wasn't going by material, just by profile and shine-through.

There are some on AliExpress.  I did a quick search for "SA keycaps", and there's one with the description "104 Keys/set SA Height New Arrival Double-Shot Backlit Ball Keycaps PBT Key Caps For Mechanical Keyboard" that comes in black, white, red, or blue.  It's hard to tell what the profile is, but the top row does look like it's angled towards the user, so it's probably not uniform row 4, or whatever it was that Filco had SP use for their SA keycaps.   I have a set of SP's newer sculpted PBT SA Industrial keycaps, and they're wonderful.
