First post and I got a quick question for HHKB enthusiasts.
Have you ever lubed a Type-S? Is it worth the time, or no? Does it sound/feel similar to a silenced standard Pro 2?
I currently have a standard Pro 2 w/ 55g domes, lubed sliders/stabs (Trybosis 3204/Krytox 205-0), KBD silencing rings, with a Sorbothane inlay. I absolutely love the feel/sound of it.
But I bought a Type-S to compare the two. Without any modifications, I don’t think the Type-S comes close to the satisfying sound/feel of my modded board.
But I’m going to put BKE Heavies into the Type-S, and I will probably end up lubing it, and putting Sorbothane in it as well. When I do, I’ll report back.
But I wanted to hear what others’ experience has been, if there has been any, with a lubed Type-S so that I can keep those thoughts in mind going forward.
