Will these keycaps work on my mechanical?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I own and ABS M1 mechanical keyboard. The "D" lettering has completely worn off and the "S" is starting to go. I did some searching and came across these keycaps:

http://www.aliexpress.com/fm-store/803343/211121686-425491950/KBC-Yellow-Color-37-Pcs-Top-Side-Engraved-Lettering-Colorful-Keycap-replaceable-keycaps-for-Mechanical-Keyboard.html

I was wondering if they'd work on my ABS M1. If not, is there another place that has keycaps that will fit? Hell, even if these do work, if someone knows of a better solution, let me know. Thanks in advance for any help provided.

So in other words I'd probably be better off just purchasing a new board.

If you want to have a large selection of caps I'd say yes.

Never?

Yeah thats like the straight truth though lol. Your best bet other then buying a new board would be to troll the goodwill / salvation army. A large majority of the keyboards that I find are in fact Alps and most are even double shot. Also check the keys on old laptops (like the first laptops).
