It was custom built and I'm not sure where the springs came from, but probably a Korean group buy if I had to guess.

Buy them from Sherryton. Either wait until his store is back up (should be soon) or send him a PM
55g, 62g, & 65g Springs $12 (100ea) - http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=40253.0

Ala, red springs with clear tops for some lighter but more tactile browns.

Like wise, I'm probably gonna grab some 65cN springs to put in clears to make a stiff, smoother switch.

Here are the used ones I'm grabbing off Taobao. They're supposed to be tested and working and for what you want to do, they'd be fine even if they don't work. These Clears are the cheapest new I've seen on Taobao. They don't have the most transactions, so can't say if the seller is good, but they should be cheaper even with fees and shipping.

Mouser has them for $1.15 each and they drop to $0.99 each if you buy 100. Much better deal than Digikey, but still expensive.

Do you know if there's any way to easily get some of those mid-range Korean springs in the US? Or are there any similar springs you might be able to find anywhere?

You can find one Korean custom keyboard from about $300 to $500 depends on its model or version, condition...
Mine came from a Korean keyboard community (kbdmania) so I suggest you should learn Korean first, or make friend with some nice Korean guys smile.gif

Wow those are cheap. I think I'm going to buy some through my agent (Bhiner). For the springs (55g, 62g, 65g Silver only), I linked you to Sherryton's page smile.gif

Yeah, they are. I was debating getting 250 of them, but really only need enough for one full keyboard, so I grabbed 135 which, hopefully, should cover me.

Thanks for that link. Now I'm debating which weight to get. 65 and 62 both look good. I'm also debating on those stickers, but don't know if they actually help with noise and stability.

And Bhiner looks good if I want to get something off of TaoBao again.

Switch stickers don't really help with either. They're really just for looks (Photo below), but even then you won't even see them 99.9% of the time lol.
I like Bhiner a lot, because they will confirm stock of an item without any kind of pre-payment and they only charge 2.5% ($2.50 minimum charge).If you can keep your order weight under 2kg and don't need too big of a box (Keycaps, switches, etc), they offer Registered Airmail HK [Small] Packet for a good price. It's ~$5 for 100g, goes up ~$2.50 for each additional 100g and shipping takes ~7 days. When I want this option, I just check other for shipping, check the "Eco friendly, I don't need extra package, just send me the product is ok." box, and let them know that I want Registered Airmail HK [Small] Packet via the comment.

Edit - Okay well it's 5% with no minimum, but that's still very good imo smile.gif

I'm seriously thinking a TKL w/ MX Blacks for gaming now and have them both plugged in at the same time.

Or I could wait for the MiniLa to be released. thinking.gif
