Yeah I have found a couple of those boards around work, keys felt sticky on it too.

Unrelated, can anyone tell me what these are? They're on an Ultratec Miniprint 225 which seems to be some kind of "old-school" (at least in this industry) speech to text and vice versa device for phones that I picked up at the local state surplus store. They're linear, maybe 55g (feel about like blues, maybe a bit heavier? The bump in the blues makes it hard to tell.) They're not labeled, and I don't think they're Cherry-made, primarily because of the stem/slider design. Looks like it has Cherry stabs, though. The Miniprint was made in maybe 1999 based on the copyright on the manual, although it's in phenomenal condition if that's the case.

Edit: Added a picture of the back of the PCB.

They are designed as low profile switches like MEI and Alps SKFS. I like Alps low profile switches the best.

I actually like them, they feel a bit like clickier scissor switches to me.

Looks like a TG3 BL82.

Edit: If you want one, there's one for sale on eBay right now for $55 after shipping. Not sure the forum rules on eBay links, though.

Edit 2: Fixed price cause I was wrong.

yup. great little board, made for cop cars. I painted mine beige and threw on some OG Cherry WoB doubleshots. PBT blanks for the odd keys. Matches my current build pretty well. Just wish it was a little heavier... i may have a thicker steel plate made for it

i was wrong, though, the layout doesnt quite match the 4100... is there an MX version? its hard to source caps for the BL82

Thanks for the link. I couldn't find much on these switches. Have you heard anything about their durability/longevity in comparison to Cherrys? They feel really nice, but I don't want to have to worry about them dying a couple months down the line if I put them into a project I'm working on, y'know?

Edit: Never mind, it doesn't matter. Apparently the pins are Cherry-compatible so if any of them bite the dust early, I can just swap them with some blacks!

Yeah they are vintage switches and many still work so I don't think you'll find many problems using them in the long term.

Surprisingly, I think they're brand new or darn close to it (in terms of use). I got the board they're attached to, which came wrapped in bubble wrap, in its original box, with all the accessories, etc. totally unopened. Not a bad find for $12, I think.

Does anyone know how to remap keys? I'd like to see if I can remap option key and command key on the left bottom of the keyboard to something else (alt/windows atm, I want it windows, alt).
