Ordered this today, hope i won't regret shelling out 200 euroshekkels on it. Any of you have any experience with different sliders? Changing the sliders seems to be one of the more popular mods done to the fc660c next to lubing, silencing it and using BKE domes, but i don't know if it's done because the stock ones are shit or just to be able to use MX keycaps.

If you want to test the PCB itself and not just the controller, you can either just go through all the traces with a DMM and check for continuity. Otherwise just put in the controller, program it, then short the pins for each switch.

That's not a keyboard switch though, is it? If it's not then it doesn't count, stick a fucking steel beam in there and boom you have a "20 kg switch" or something. Has to be specifically made for keyboards else it's cheating.

Matias QC is nicely tactile but they're pretty mushy. I guess all silent switches are, but Matias uses scratchy plastic amplifying the issue, plus the Alps double bump makes it even more noticeable.
It's by no means bad, but it's definitely suboptimal. I heard something about them fixing the scratchiness soon, but I have no idea when the new switches come out (or if they have already).

It is a keyboard switch. They were made in the 1970s and 80s for terminal keyboard. Unlike the IBM beamspring that was designed to emulate a typewriter, these were quiet linear switches

Get the case 3D printed, put in the switches, hand wire all the switches up, hot glue the switches in place (so pulling keycaps won't pull the switches with them), program the two pro micros, wire the columns & rows to the controllers, then hook up both halves with either a TRRS or RJ9 cable (depending on how the case was printed).

Looks like he used a low res 3D printer. Which is fine because the case doesn't need to be exact (I guess a super precise printer could perhaps avoid the need to glue in the switches but even then I'm not sure) and it's a relatively big component so making it using tiny layers would have probably been expensive as fuck.

I cancelled my laser buy because most GMK sets are ugly and they never look like renders, my only GMK set is 9009 but if GMK Paper comes out I'll get that

I just know SA Retro is soon™, and GMK Paper, and I'm getting a Koyu probably close to the deadline, I need switches for 3-4 keyboards... I just hope I can at some point draw a line

Yeah, I know a lot of people ended up displeased with Laser in the end, but I've seen enough actual photos in enough different lighting conditions to think I'm going to be happy with my purchase.
All I need now is to find a decent deal on 1976 for a tkl and an extra 1.75u shift in case I put it on my Saber 68 and I hope I'm done blowing money on this.

I forget which thread it was in, but I remember matt3o hinting that there would be a drop for MT3 retro eventually™.

I have one with MX blues and the stock thick PBT keycaps. I like it. My left shift key stabilizer is squeaky and I've never lubed it though. Feels like a tank.
