Hey guys good news. Pic related. I ordered one last night. Mod keycaps with Gateron Reds, did I do good?

how do i fix a blue switch that has become loud as fuck? do i have to desolder and open it up? or can i lube it from outside? what do

David Jones
David Jones

is the switch broken, as in if you press it nothing shows up? or is it just too loud for you. If so you can just get some dampeners

James Jenkins
James Jenkins

it works, it's just that the click is excessively sharp and loud compared to the other switches. i'm not sure dampeners would help since it's the click, it's not the bottoming out that's the problem.

Henry Sanchez
Henry Sanchez

If its only that one then buy another switch. Maybe you don't need to desolder it and its just the plunger and stem that's broken and you can easily replace those
youtube.com/watch?v=bLBXxzmuA_Q

if that doesn't work then change the entire switch.

James Diaz
James Diaz

(strictly for PCB-Mounted Keyboard only)
d'oh

so you think buying lube will be a waste and i should desolder it instead?

and i don't know which lube i should get, don't know if i can apply this lube from outside

ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-door-rubber-silicone-grease-lubricant-WATER-REPELLENT-Frost-prevention-/380822800633

Liam Davis
Liam Davis

Yeah, you can lube from the outside. You have high chances of killing the click completely tho.

Any silicone lube should work just fine, or even some syntetic lube like krytox. Just dont use any Oil based lubes or you risk ruining the plastic.

Brody Hernandez
Brody Hernandez

i tried removing the keycap and with the keycap off it didn't make much sound at all so it seems the keycap amplifies it a lot more than i expected, so maybe i can do something with the keycap to dampen the sound

You have high chances of killing the click completely tho.
damn this is scary but hmm maybe i'll go for it... i'll have to think about it

Juan Brooks
Juan Brooks

seems the keycap amplifies it a lot more than i expected
Whats the position of the switch. Maybe its just resonating

Benjamin Smith

Cherry profile or bust.

Eli Morris

So what Godspeed kits did you guys purchase? Solar and Mods or Cockpit?

Caleb Watson

none because it's in shitty ABS.
PBT sets are coming soon, so until then I'll pass

Blake Nguyen

none cus Mito is a fagget

Ayden Perry
Ayden Perry

I kind of want to try out g20 sets, but the color options are a bit too limited. Maybe if they had a set on massdrop using only one color option for cheap I might pick one up.

Carter Perez
Carter Perez

it's the S key

interesting idea with the resonance

maybe i can put some foam on the inside of the keycap to try to dampen the sound... if i can find some foam

Henry Thomas

all this grease

Not ok.

Colton Morales
Colton Morales

nope it isn't. ABS plastic is one of the cheapo options out there. It is known to shine after use and it ends up looking like shit. If I'm going to be spending 60+ bucks on a keycap set I want something more durable that wont shine like PBT

Ian Hernandez
Ian Hernandez

Any good yet somewhat cheap (Under $100 USD) brown switch keyboards? I need to get me a new keyboard and mouse to upgrade from my Cooler Master Devastator combo.

Hudson Gonzalez

They both shine, one just takes longer.

That being said: Quality ABS > Cheap PBT

Hudson Martinez

see

ABS is shit and nothing you say will change that fact

Asher Harris
Asher Harris

Its not about the user, its about the SA profile. Signature plastics doesnt have mate SA molds, so pretty much every SA set will have this disgusting greasy shiny texture.

Aaron Wilson
Aaron Wilson

sorry but... PBT > Cherry ABS > Cheap PBT > literal garbage > ABS, even SP ABS

Logan Hall

You use ABS for doubleshots and PBT for dyesubs, I don't see what you people are even arguing about.

Caleb Smith

Nothing is stooping you from using whatever plastic you want. Some are just more durable then others.

You can have double shot PBT. Vortex makes some sets.

Jacob Wood

But Vortex is a meme.

Colton Ortiz

Fair enough.

Now go find some POM doubleshots.

Yeah I know, tai hao also makes PBT doubleshots, that's why I specified not looking like ass.

Eli Davis

G20 is really meh. I really dislike uniform profiles, and it having no curvature at all makes it worse.

Josiah Russell

Where can I get those key caps?

Chase Fisher
Chase Fisher

POM is normally lasered. I have black POM caps salvaged from a Cherry G80-3000 that are nice.

Vortex does PBT+POM doubleshot, though not POM+POM.

Chase Murphy
Chase Murphy

Vortex does PBT+POM doubleshot, though not POM+POM.
the POM is only for shine-through legends, with PBT as the main material because memes, they could probably make POM+POM if they wanted to

Adrian Green
Adrian Green

Its funny they should make acetal keycaps. After all they will match the cancer that is /mkg/

Connor Cook
Connor Cook

Acetal is POM

Juan Edwards
Juan Edwards

not entirely acetal is a carcinogen and will cause cancer. Prolonged exposure also causes irritation of the skin, eyes and nasal region, which is why only a bit of it is mixed in. A pure acetal keycap will violate many health laws

Anthony Gray
Anthony Gray

i don't think that's how chemistry works

Ducky Shine 5 or Logitech G810?
Any other suggestions at this price point with RGB.
I won't game, just type.

No gaming? Don't get RGB then.

Biggest meme there is.

do you really need RGB lighting?
anyway wait until the ducky shine 6 is comes out with double shot PBT keycaps which should feel really nice.

Elijah Sanchez

I want backlighting so why don't add 20 bucks more and get it RGB so it matches the color of my set up?

Juan Cook
Juan Cook

They're EnjoyPBT dye subbed caps. No idea where they are readily available now.

Brody Lee

get RGB, don't let these neckbeards meme you

David Hughes

You can get them on shadovved's GB thread on geekhack. He has some extras on hand. $85USD shipped I think.

Charles James

I don't, I want backlighting tho and I won't mind spending a bit more to get RGB.

Henry Moore
Henry Moore

Don't overspend on RGB lighting. Get a Ducky One with a back light. They are only in single color options, but they are much cheaper at under $90 and have the exact same functionality of the shine 5

Daniel Hall

fuck off retard

wanting backlighting doesn't necessarily mean you can't touch type

do you tell people who buy gaudy colored keycap sets to l2touchtype too?

Isaiah Russell
Isaiah Russell

calm down m8 everyone should learn to touch type. The link I provided you should be helpful.

Nathan Smith
Nathan Smith

Okay, in that case which switch should I get, I've been looking at the buyer's guide but I'm not sure which of them fits more my profile, I'll type a lot and don't want it to be very noisy since I use my PC mostly at night. Are whites/greens really noisy?

Caleb Taylor
Caleb Taylor

Again Ducky Ones only come with one color for your LEDs. You said that you wanted it to match your setup so pick the color you want. As for switches get a tactile switch. whites/greens are loud a clicky. Clears or tactile greys are the ones you should be looking at

Cameron Smith
Cameron Smith

Okay, thanks I'll get tactile switches then.
I understood that the Ducky One LED are one color only when you first told me but thanks anyway.

Mason Baker
Mason Baker

you directed your post toward someone who wants backlighting

there is not much benefit to NOT having backlighting, at "best" it's a matter of preference, if the lights give you sensory overload and triggers your autistic rage then fine you don't need them, but if someone knows they want backlighting you're a dick if you keep shitting on them for it

Ethan Fisher
Ethan Fisher

you directed your post toward someone who wants backlighting
no I didn't you have me mixed up with the wrong guy. I just think everyone would be better of learning to touch type as it helps reduce fatigue and who doesn't want to be a better typer

Jonathan Green
Jonathan Green

well ok yeah everyone should learn to touch type

but the "l2touchtype" fag was probably being condescending to people who like backlighting

Brayden Smith
Brayden Smith

To be fair, backlighting is for children and people who like it should probably off themselves.

Pretty much everything on winkeyless has it, and they have some neat layouts too.

This compact model is for sale for $69.99 on Massdrop. Thoughts? It comes in different variations, not just typewriter caps.

No. Acetal is literally just the short name for polyoxymethylene.
You might be thinking about the fact that some brand name plastics are more specific formulations of POM; eg, Delrin.

As for a carcinogen, you may, again, be thinking of something else. The only connection is that making POM requires formaldehyde, which is a potential carcinogen.

POM has been used in plumbing fixtures, and the only problem with that is that chlorine can cause it to degrade, which makes it physically weaker, but does not release anything Generally Accepted as Toxic.
