Anyone know if I can find a reasonably priced custom case for my Masterkeys Pro S?

I don't think anyone makes a custom case for them, the only thing even remotely close i have seen is the tkl kits by 1upkeyboards

Cool. That's a lot more expensive than I thought it would be, I guess I'll just stick with custom keycaps. Thanks!

I have a Corsair K70 backlit RGB Rapidfire Mechanical Keyboard, with Cherry MX Speed switches. I generally like the keyboard, but I am having some predictable trouble adjusting to the delicate touch and I frequently activate adjacent keys accidentally. Especially annoying when entering passwords that you can't see. I think the full 4mm throw tends to cause my fingers to nudge the adjacent key just enough to activate it. If I limited the travel to just enough to activate it, with a soft bottom, I think it should help. I think a thick soft o-ring might also help me adjust to the short travel till activation.

 

According to the LTT review of MX Keyswitches, the Speed variety has a very short 1.2mm travel till activation, and 4.0mm total travel. Based on that I was thinking a 2.5mm to 2.8mm thick o-ring with a soft durometer of 40A-L might be a good solution?

 

I'm confused by specs of the o-rings I'm seeing at WASD and in discussions here that discuss 0.2mm and 0.4mm which would be EXTREMELY thin if it is a measure of the total thickness, about the thickness of a business card, roughly on the order of 1/100th of an inch! Could this actually be a measure of how much they COMPRESS in normal usage, rather than their actual thickness? Looking at the pictures of these o-rings, there is NO WAY they look this thin!

 

Any suggestions, clarifications, or recommendations are much appreciated. I wouldn't say cost is no object, but I'm willing to spend what it takes to get the right parts. 

 

Thanks! Cheers!

Renewed my Filco Majestouch 2 

MyKeyboard.jpg

Since its hard to find any ISO GER Layout PBT Doubleshot Keycaps i used the Ducky LED Keycaps from Caseking.

https://www.caseking.de/ducky-pbt-double-shot-keycap-set-fuer-backlight-de-layout-schwarz-gakc-042.html

 

They do work very well even without LED's. The labeling looks much darker in real life, its awesome. I even got the LED noise dampeners just for fun :D

As in you're too poor to have one or they are bad keyboards?

Well, I'm satisfied with my keyboard (see signature), and I don't feel like dropping however much it is just to try it.

I think it's Kalih (however you spell it)

Ah yes, Kailh. Honestly it's not worth spending $120+ if it has Kailh.
