Just built this! Time to sleep -_-
It is possible that the BOX Royals didn’t stretch the caps too bad. The BOX Royals I had on my Nightfox for a bit weren’t too bad at all. I had my set of GMK Sky Dolch on them before the news about BOX stems breaking caps blew up & thankfully they didn’t even stretch them much. In fact I couldn’t even find any stress marks after I inspected them! I got them on Halo stems now, they still fit nice & snug. Same goes for the set of MAXKEY SA B&G I got on my ACR60 with BOX Navies, no cracks or visible stretch marks on them & they still fit regular MX stems snugly! So IME it seems to be the outlier stems that exceeded spec are the real culprits for cracking & stretching caps with the old stock BOX switches, although others have had whole sets ruined.
Can’t go wrong with classic Dolch!
Unfortunately I have visible stretch marks on these guys, and three Maxkey sets with cracks and stretch marks.
My entire collection so far had been box switches
Damn rough, my condolences… At this point I’m just gonna take it as I got super lucky with the two batches of BOX switches I got.
Aren’t they on his website now? https://stratakb.com/store/cases/clear-acrylic-pearl
You are right, I miss the pcb though, and there was a gb for a complete kit in the works as far as I know.
That layout is
Ah, yeah if you don’t have the pcb then there isn’t much you can do right now. Koob hasn’t been very active lately but I hope it still becomes a thing!
The orange JTK set is awesome
Favorite split board so far?
I really love my Iris for gaming, but for typing im much better on the Nyquist. I used to have a Quefrency before I fell out of love with staggered boards. That was a lovely board.
Rebuilt my Clueboard with lubed 78g V2 Zealios, split the backspace this time around as well. I’m starting to really prefer split backspace after getting my Nightfox.
Edit: replaced original pic with a better one.
