Novelkeys cream switches


#1

Were the cream switches revised to get rid of the friction from the POM on POM contact?


#2

Yes.


#3

If you’re talking about how if you push down at an angle, it kind of ‘studders’ instead of going down smoothly, then no, that has not been fixed. I’ve got a set of creams in my singa that I lubed with 205g0 and I can easily reproduce that. During normal typing, it’s a complete non-issue though.


#4

As a person who loves 205g0 and has V2 Creams, is the lube still holding up well?


#5

So far so good! I’ve been using them for a couple months now and they’re still quite smooth. I’ve got several linear boards and the creams are probably my favorite. I’m not sure if I’d say they’re the smoothest, but I love the sound they make :slight_smile:


#6

Yeah the creams are definitively in my next keyboard build!


#7

Oof, that’s very promising. Thanks for letting me know! I had heard previous concerns about the lube staying on the switch properly due to the apparent self-lubricating nature of the POM housing.
