    Your looking at 3mm flangeless leds.

    My daughter wanted cyan and they were uber expensive in this country to do a whole board.

    I did test fit some non flangeless and they didn't seem to cause any fouling etc so not sure why they have to be flangeless.

    Again though watch out for voltages as I wanted to change the reds in my qpad for blues but due to the higher voltage required by blue leds it wasn't possible as they just didn't light.

    Has anyone had a chance to have a look at the Ducky Air yet? I love the 65% form factor in general and had considered getting involved on the next White Fox drop because of it but this could be perfect.

    Okay im finally in a position to offer up my modded key switch tester.

    Before i do though, i need some key caps to replace the non distinct ones that come with it as standard.

    For what ever reason I have grown attached to it but its not doing me any favours and i feel i need to give back to the forum i love so much.

    So if anyone has some key caps to spare then please drop me a pm.

    Once the caos have been fitted then i will sell the tester for £10, then every time it gets sold on a £ should be deducted so eventually it becomes the property of bit tech and anyone can try out different switches for just the cost of postage.

    Hi crapbag. Once you get keycaps sorted I'll gladly buy it and then pass it on when finished. I still haven't taken the plunge on a board yet as I keep thinking it's a lot of money to spend on a "what if" as to whether or not I like that particular spring or not so this would be great

    How many and what sort of caps are you after? I've got spares coming out of my trumpet, let me know your requirements and I can probably sort you out with something.

    Nostalgia was a great set, both from colour way and a caps included sense. I kind of regret selling mine but it was too nice to be sat in a box under my desk.

    I'm not perfectly clear on why you say it's a clone. Are you referring to the set by Signature Plastics as the original? Or are you saying they're not even Tai Haos?

    It's not the CTRL[ALT] SP or GMK set is what I mean. Ergo a clone!

    EDIT: This is an original C[A] SP set:

    Add the UK language as a secondary input method in windows, use Win + Space to toggle to it then Shift + 3, then toggle back. I find it's about the same as doing the ALT code on the numpad once you get used to it.

    How can I permanently assign a different keyboard layout to a USB keyboard?
    I have UK layout assigned to my laptop keyboard, but I would like to change it to ANSI US when plug my mech to USB.

    Waited three weeks for my keys only to get a refund with no explanation. And I accidentally left him good feedback just to top it all off.

    I think I've found the same set on Amazon USA so I will get my mate to order those and send them on to me.
