Looks good! What keyset is this?
Thanks! PBT BoB. Its more of a BoDark Gray
Thanks to @keyboardbelle!
The first two photos are a bit warm in tone. Last two are great and finally show off the true color of this set and case.
It’s cable time! Copper sleeve for copper iris build from @johnatzap and cream switches! I’ve got to say I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t smell anything but maybe that’s just my cold.
Edit: I just opened the bag of switches again and got a whiff of them! Smells like a building under construction is all I can summarize it to
i got my creams today as well. Mine are super stinky. Smells a bit fishy, a bit oily. Pretty nasty.
I was surprised to find that Sprit springs are no less pingy than the stock springs in the switches. I will be lubing them either way but I wonder if there’s actually any benefit to spring swapping in this case. I’ll update my findings once I start lubing them!
yeah, i already lubed the stock springs. Way too pingy and some of them grindy. I also liked the feel of lightly lubed stems with 3204.
I was hoping to use them stock, but I don’t think they’re any better than than FEI or tangerines as far as feel. They may sound a bit better, but I actually like the feel of the Gateron Ink switches more. Still haven’t found anything that I can use totally stock. I’ve never had springs that didn’t need lube.
Guess I’ve just grown too picky.
Yeah, I was expecting to lube them. Personally I just really like the colour and I suppose it’s neat that they’re all POM. Hoping to powder coat a board this same colour!
Yup, I’m drooling. Shishi is really the only artisan I’ve found that I enjoy the look of so far.
