Is it possible to put Gateron 35g springs into MX Blues/Kailh Greens?
I could do it over pm/email, but I won't add the option to my Etsy (still no add-on pricing.) Be careful, though.

I could do it but you'd have to catch me before a big order, which are getting less and less frequent since I'm buying in bigger and bigger batches. I'm running pretty low so my next purchase will probably be within the next few weeks if you don't mind waiting a little bit. You mean the ones from keypop, right? I was actually considering picking some up with my last order because I thought it would look cool but decided against it since they aren't transparent.

Glad you like it and thanks for the +1! Maybe it's just becuase I used them in the product shots but there are a few more people going for them now which I'm very happy to see.

I'd be surprised if you could manage to break one but I have no objections

Glad it's been working out for you and thanks for the tape testimonial. I've added more info to all of my Etsy pages so hopefully people will know you can actually clean it now

(holy crap this tape is amazing, its fully reusable)
I'm using a v1 keypad with gateron clears.
Here's a small update to the o-ring situation.

I had an issue with one press registering multiple clicks. He did everything he could to help me.
In the end, I found out on my own that it seems the o-ring(I believe it reduces the key's travel distance by 0.4 mm) was keeping the key on the edge of pressed and not pressed so when I pressed down it would register as multiple clicks. Removing the o-rings fixed it and hasn't ever registered multiple clicks from one press since.
I've considered it, but these pose the same issue with the lack of posts on the stem as o-rings do with the caveat of not being able to reliably stack them. I'll still probably try them on one of my personal keypads to see if there's that much of a noticeable difference within the next few weeks. They do look like they'd do a better job with sound dampening.

Something like this could be a good alternative to O-rings altogether.
I haven't tried using these with osu so they may not be good gameplay wise but regular typing does the job.
you can't forget this use for the keypad ~ I laughed a little too hard at it.
^^ If you're asking, it's legit from the website.
Nahh, I have a big, red Staples "Easy" button that does it for me. It's also a surprisingly fun project to do.

There is absolutely no competition.

They use gateron browns, and seem competitively priced as well.
True, but that plate mount though.. I know that you could use teensy boards for thnikk's keyboards in order to do 1000Hz but again, that build quality for the techkeys KB is nuts.

Techkeys is selling a keyboard with no USB connector for $48. It uses Gateron Browns (merely inferior Cherry MX Browns) and likely has only 125Hz polling. The separate cable costs $23 from them. That's $71 for a 3 key keypad.
By contrast, a Thnikk keypad has 1000Hz polling, a wide variety of switches (including the popular MX Red switches as well as the interesting Gateron Clear switches (essentially Reds that require less force)) and only costs $36.

If I had to make a comparison (pardon my overly blunt analogy), it's like PC vs Mac. Getting the job done vs. pure luxury. Besides, I think techkeys is selling this assuming we already have micro-USB cables anyway.
Anyway, I'm not here to start a fight. I'm just letting thnikk know the latest word from the grape vine. I'd say thnikk has balls to do this anyways so there's my credibility as an opinionist out of the window.
EDIT: The techkeys board retails for 58.97 CAD while the thnikk board retails for 44.20+ CAD. I'd say those are both fully decked out models (LEDs vs. aluminium plate). Idk if the thnikk board ships with a cable though.
