Recently started using GMK screw-ins. Overall they’re great! I have things pretty much tuned to sound perfect for my use.
BUT … it only sounds perfect on the side that I tend to hit, the other side is super rattly
One strange thing I noticed, when I take the keycap off and hold each stab insert all the way up(as if the keycap were still there); there’s always quite a bit of wiggle room on that opposite side, whereas the side i tend to hit can barely move.
Without adding a lot of unnecessary detail - after experimenting I know how tight the housing is attached has a little bit to do with this and that this is partly my own doing. I have the housing of each stab tightened to varying degrees; side I tend to hit is tight, opposite side is kept a bit looser which somehow makes the side I hit sound fantastic.
What gets me though is that, after trying a multitude of different tightness / looseness levels on the housing - I’m left a bit stumped because there is always seems to be a bit of a rattle no matter what which seems impossible based on the design of the stab.
My best guess is that it’s something to do with the stab wire but I also noticed that the stab inserts are numbered - do those numbers happen to mean anything?
Note that stabs are clipped, lubed, and band-aid’d
I’m basically fine with how things are but would love it if I could fix this - I’m a bit sensitive to noise ; it’s always a little wincing when I’m going along just fine and then - I accidentally hit the key on the wrong side
Thanks ahead of time!
