I received all my switches. I have to say that Alybuilds was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was super communicative through the entire process. Turnaround time was about a week which is way faster than I could have ever gained motivation for.
I threw the Tealios in my bakeneko to test out and also rebuilt my Typemachina No.1 with TTC Wilds. The Opblacks will rotate into the bakeneko for testing once I rebuild my Chimera65 with the Tealios.
The Wilds and Opblacks are prelubed, so she ultrasonic cleaned them. Not something I would have ever bothered with personally in a million years, but I thought why not?
Lube job seems consistent. Is it exactly as I would have done? No, I am a little heavy handed and may overlube a bit according to some standards. But I don’t have any complaints at all and could easily forget that someone else lubed the switches. I’m not very picky though; there just needs to be enough lube but not wet.
Overall I am very happy with my decision. Before this I was feeling overwhelmed by my backlog of stuff. I wanted engage in my hobby, but I had so much to do that I ended up doing nothing (depression lol).
Now that I don’t have so goddamn many switches to lube, I’m actually motivated to lube them myself for the next build. Though I would totally use a service again if I’m just not feeling it.
