This demo will show why I like the powder better than grease so far for these switches:
Here’s the powder I used:
so with powder lubing, the stem will not contact with the housing, and it just… slide on the powder, right?
will the powder be rubbed off overtime?
So this is unexpected… The switches sound kinda weird! The powder seems to be muffling the bottom out noise. Here is a typing video:
Whoa, I thought we are supposed to be kinda gentle with opened-bottom housing since the metal contacts are fragile and can get bent easily. Shaking a bunch of bottom housing in a container surprised me a bit
Meh, they aren’t THAT fragile
FWIW I experienced very little stick-slip friction in my switches (production ones, not proto/samples).
That said, you and others have been talking a lot about dry lubing with straight PTFE powder so I really appreciate the video and ongoing experimentation.
