So after this unfortunate morning event involving a clumsy backhand and a cup of fresh coffee"
I decided it was the perfect opportunity to give her a good clean, void the warrant, put my big boy pants on and lube the sliders at the same time.
I fired up these 2 fantastic videos:
HHKB Rebuild & Lubing Log & Guide - YouTube (hat tip to @Manofinterests)
and got to work.
Turned out none of the coffee had gotten as far as the domes or PCB so that was good.
I don’t have photos of the actual lube process but needless to say it was really straightforward and was quite interesting to see how everything fits and goes together (coming into this with only MX switches experience).
Put it back together using Huey’s method with great success - turns out I too am a little bit awesome
Clean with soapy water
and we’re good!
I lubed it with 3203 and boy is it even more of a joy to use now (this is the HHKB Professional HYBRID Type-S by the way).
