Tell me how many nickels it takes to depress the keys on your keyboard! - Page 21

post #201 of 267
I've got a Fujitsu FKB4700 - Fujitsu Peerless switches.

It took between 16 and 18 nickels to register as a keystroke, depending on how gentle I was stacking the nickels.

I'm cleaning all the keys right now so I took one of the keycaps and put it back on at the least-sloped part of the keyboard.

14 on the esc key, it was the only key I could manage to balance them on.

Rubber Domes tend to be around the 65-75g range. Another reason to buy mechanicals is if you want a lighter switch.

I even use stacks of glued nickels to shim the keyboard level.

65g for my very old Microsoft Natural Elite

65g also for my Lenovo T400. No wonder I like IBM/Lenovo T-series laptop keyboards so much

Now to find a similar mechanical.

My Model M:

Measured in 2€ coins:

9 of them makes the activation.

Each 2€ coin is 8.5gr, so 76.5gr, the 75gr anounced for the BS I think.

NT$ is New Taiwanese dollars.

Yes, this is a multicultural way to measure switches.

70g for my cheapo logitech k200.


70g of pure weight to bottom out/actuate the key

if i had 60g and moved the stack slightly it would depress the key.
