How To Access The Inner Parts of Low Profile Cherry Reds Without Desoldering.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I saw this video from Wildcat that used Super Lube to spray into the key switch. However, I have low profile Cherry MX switches in my keyboard, and I do not know where to access the inner parts without taking it apart, which is not really an option for me because I don't trust myself with a soldering iron. Please help.

There’s always the dunk.  I don’t know what “super lube” is.  I wonder if it’s anything like dr zooks sex wax (surfboard wax) 

 

I got a nasty suspicion “super lube” is some fairly standard thing.  Wd-40 is just mineral oil and gasoline after all.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

I'm pretty sure Super Lube is some PTFE thing that evaporates and leaves a line of grease. I looked it up and they claim that it is not conductive. But if I were not to use super lube and something like Krytox, do you think it would work if i places some on the stem and pressed it down several times?

I really don't think you'd be able to get much lube into the switch at all using that method. The stem has a ring around it, so it looks like the lube would go everywhere except for inside the switch.
