I finally got my custom WASD keys from WASD Keyboards.
Unluckily letters are written a little too high. Here's photos at various level of illumination (it's not realistic as they are a nice cobalt blue, not light blue)...

On WASD Keybords, dampeners have now 3 different colors for different height/hardness: blue, red and black.
Would be switch type related?

I would contact them for the specifics, but I imagine you should take your Cherry switch color in account when deciding. However, I'd think that Cherry Reds could probably use any of the three varieties because they have the least key-press resistance of all. They also are not a 2-stage key-press like Browns and Blues (which are Tactile, not Linear). See this page for some more detail and the video at the bottom showing dampeners in action:

I asked, they confirmed that color is just to identify them, and they're not related to switch type.

It's ok, guys.



I think you can use any rubber or silicone rings with dimensions: 8 mm - outer diameter. 4mm - internal. Thickness - 2mm.

Hey guys,
Love my new K90.
My only complaint is I'm continually bumping the capslock key as I'm used to having one with an indent, similar to this:

It's driving me batty.

I've taken a look around on WASD Keyboards, keycapsdirect.com and Elite Keyboards and cant find a style similar caps key for CherryMX.
Anyone got any ideas where I could find one? :)

i've got my k95 on the way. does anyone know the number of o-rings i'll need to get them fitted on every key? i ordered the 125-pack from wasd, but i wanted to be sure that it will be enough, as i cannot tell if any of the keys [space/shift/etc.] might use more than one?

I go a new K70 (Cherry Reds) last week. Had ordered a bag of the Chinese silicone O-Rings and took about an hour installing them, LOVE the feel. Thanks for the info!

The O-rings took about 1.5 weeks to arrive, no issues at all. I think the semi-clear nature of these may do a better job of not blocking the light from the LEDs; in any case they fit and work fine. The package contains 500 so there are plenty for a couple of keyboards.

Installation tips; Get a wire keypuller from WASD or other source, it works better than the plastic one that comes with the keyboard. Use a pair of small, long-nose needle nose pliers; pick up an O-ring by putting the jaws in the middle and opening the pliers to stretch the O-ring a bit; then stretch it enough to fit over one side of the post and stretch it over the other side and kind of hold it in place with a fingernail while pulling the pliers out. Then use the pliers to push the O-ring down to the base of the post. You could also use a tube of the right side (5mm or so) to push it down. Pop the key back on and you're good to go. Repeat 104 times...

The wider keys (Shift, Enter, etc), have 3 posts and I put one on each. The space bar has 3 as well, and I put an O-ring on each. Be careful pulling the space bar, it's way too wide for a single key puller so use 2 and pull gently and evenly on both ends until it comes up, be careful not to pop one side before the other or it might break something. That would be bad...

-R&R
