Where or who sells spacers to shorten the travel distance of Cherry MX Red switches? I can't find the link I use to have

Bring a keycap when you go(to test with), they may sell "o" rings in bulk.

I'm going to try HD first but that's not a bad idea, thanks

You can also look for dental bands. They're the same thing as o-rings.

They might be too small to shorten the distance. I remember wearing braces years ago. Plus I don't think I can just walk in to a store that sells o-rings for braces, but I will look into it if HD fails. No need to spend 15$ for a zillion of them from WASD

They don't have keycaps for sale. Those are just for displaying their o-rings.

Anyway, they do ship to the US.

Ok, so I finally ended up at Home Depot and remembered to look for those o-rings. I found some but I don't know if they are the right size. Does anyone know the size of the o-rings they sell? e.g. the ones I found are = 5/16 OD x 3/16 ID x 1/16 thick

I got some of these and put them on a board with browns.

Amazon link to 0.4mm orings

I understand this doesn't answer your question exactly, but these seem to be sold commonly and if you notice, they are sold my WASD. So maybe some further digging can give you exact answers. Or, you'll do it like I did and just say "screw it" and add to cart.

Thanks, I think I found some at Home Depot for 2$ They reduce the travel distance by 1.67mm, actuation begins at 2mm apparently, on my SteelSeries 6Gv2 with the Cherry MX Reds

Anyway, for the old continent the cheapest place for sound dampening o-rings is that place mentioned earlier.
