Could actually cause corrosion. Since the zinc caps would sit higher than the aluminum shell, high humidity areas may experience galvanic corrosion over time.

Nice caps though. I thought about getting a set of blank ones to etch at work, but feng's eBay wasn't accepting payments at the time and I took that as a sign I shouldn't do it. Lol

year of the snake
it was the limited edition version of the shine 3

also, zinc is believed to help reduce the risk of various cancers. it's also key in the creation of dna/rna.

These days? What doesn't? As long as they aren't made out of cadmium nor do you eat them, I think you'll be fine.

Yeah well, that much zinc will kill you. It's just a matter of time. Even if it takes 1000 years, it'll kill you! It's science.

Alright guys, I need opinions.


My family does a secret santa, and I drew my brother in law, who is a pretty nerdy and techy guy.
He is a pretty mellow guy, and does not like much attention, but he really likes it when people do something special.
He is kinda like me, a tech nerd, queit, trys his best to fit in with my crazy family, but he is a really good guy, so I wanna do
something nice for him.


So I decided I would give him one of my mechanical keyboards.

Except I don't know which one.


I currently have my red QFR (mx reds)


and a Mionix Zibal 60 (converted to mx reds )



He lives in one of my parents old houses, currently with no highspeed internet, ( middle of nowhere ) so maybe he could use it at work.
But he also wants me to build him a gaming computer soon, but I don't know when that will be. (currently has a gaming laptop )

Here is my delema, I could give him my loaded QFR, which is all flashy and custom, or a pretty much stock zibal 60.

He could use the zibal at work ( since its full sized, not flashy, and a good all-around board )
but with the QFR is probably too flashy to use at work, but he would be super happy about it, as it is all custom, one of a kind
hand made ( he loves that kinda stuff vs a store bought 'here ya go' gift )
I also have a set of stock keys and a stock case I could give him as well.
I don't really have the money to fix up the zibal, and with the wierd color backlighting, it really looks better black and green than it would painted up.
So opinions.
A full custom that he probably won't take to work or use until he moves or builds a rig
or a dull stock one he could use at work.

And I love giving personalized gifts that I either created or whatever ( the rest of the family is getting artwork or photos )
and the mionix feels too stock to feel its something I made just for him.

Either way I go, I would make him a custom spacebar with his name from WASD.
ideas, tips, comments?

mmmm cadmium....
they use cadmium in the primer on a lot of our parts as a corrosion inhibitor, so I handle it pretty often. probably gonna die by 30.

I'd say do something to spruce up the mionix for him. giving a stock gift would be a lazy way out, and the qfr wasn't really built for him. 2cents.gif

The red one you made yourself is for yourself, and reflects what you wanted. I say you spruce up the other keyboard, and maybe add a custom design to it? use some spray paint and maybe find a printout of his name in a fancy lettering, make a cutout of it and put it on the wrist rest?
