So, the stabilizers on my novatouch were still bothering me, still a little rattly, even after applying the following:
- di-electric grease (Permatex 22058)
- teflon tape (on the non-spacebar stabs)
For the non-spacebar stabs, I had previously tried standard o-rings (red, black, blue, clear) on the external (far left and right) keycap stems (not the center stem), but they reduced the throw far too much, and were way too mushy.
I finally started hunting down thinner o-rings, and have been using these two now for the last week - so far, I’m liking them. I’m using a mix of them depending on the mod key (alas, I don’t remember which now, I’ll have to pull them off at some point and note which goes with which).
(purchased on Amazon)
While they are both technically 1mm in thickness, one of them has a smaller diameter (which is a little harder to get on the stem) - however (i believe) by stretching it, it’s makes it a bit thinner than the 1mm. The difference between the 4mm & 5mm is definitely noticeable.
Anyway, I thought I’d share. If anyone else tries it, I’d love to hear your opinions.
