Howdy esteemed Keebtalk community!
I finally got my NK65 EE and as many others have reported, they don’t use metal thread inserts in their screw post, and these predictably crack or lose their thread (they also use self-tapping screws).
My keyboard suffers from the same problem. While this is not super annoying as long as I don’t move the keyboard around, it does bother me as it makes the keyboard wobble after I lift it up. I also don’t have great expectations for long term longevity if I need to open and close it again.
Has anyone had experience fixing screw post that lost their thread on polycarbonate cases? I’ve read a number of recommendations, like epoxy filling, superglue, and others, but they seem to be something rather permanent, while I would like to still open my keyboard in the future.
Appreciate any advice here,
P.S. the NK65 EE is still a nice keyboard feeling-wise, but quality is really a mixed bag.
