So... I message the XD96 seller on aliexpress: Their XD96 PCB supports alps switches, but their stock plate doesnt. Seller said they will have an alps compatible plate available in about 10 days or so, so I guess I will get one.

Main issue now is where the fuck will I get compatible keycaps. Currently I have a SGI granite and a Focus Key Pro to source them, but I dont think either of them alone can fill all the spots.

Nope, I have the keyboard for nearly a year now. And it has 2 years of warranty. Honestly after browsing here I'd have prefered not to get a mech kb made by a gaming company, and my next keyboard will definitely be something that is suggested here.

OK bros listen up,
I am new to this fancy keyboard shit. I want to buy a keyboard with a nice aluminium plate on top, to go well with the alumiunium case amp and preamp I just got. I found about this ducky legend aluminium keyboard and I dont understand jack shit about switches etc, what can you tell me about it?
Can you recommend a nice keyboard with a solid steel/aluminium case? I like my keyboards full sized.
>>
>>64122272
Read the wiki it’s a good place to start. If you buy any of the costar keyboards you can always replace the case with an aluminum one. The wiki has a list of those
>>
>>64122272
MK fission has a metal top plate, with an RGB acrylic side panel. I’d recommend you get a switch tester first to see which ones you like the most

Is zinc OK? Get one of those new Model Fs
Or if not the "compact case" ones have aluminium cases I think

if it can be considered a keyboard...

13$ Cheap chink DSA keycaps
2$ pro micro
5$ -10$ promitional max since pcbs order (this means super meme small keyboard)
10$ diodes, leds....
14$ switches

54$ at minimum, we have to count those dam shipping's, and if you don't have tools its going to increase. Thats the cheapest route you have.

Any thoughts on the Tada68? Could get it with CMx reds for $95 shipped from ((Massdrop)). Was thinking it might be fun to build my own wooden chassis and rest for it too. Just don't know if it may be best to wait on some other keyboard, or if there's better online competitors for similar keyboards.

How does it perform? Where did you get those keycaps (and how much?). I was thinking about pulling the trigger on a Tada68 from Massdrop for $95 shipped with Cherry MX reds. Not sure if there's a better offer out there for me. Would like pretty JP keycaps like that, but I could at least get red EN legends with my order.

Looking to build my first board with teh 96-key they have on KPRepublic. What switches do I get? I'm mainly going to use this at work, so blues are out, and I've found I enjoy my browns at work than my reds at home for typing. Would I enjoy gateron browns, or should I look at something completely different? I do bottom out and I plan on getting PBT caps if that makes a difference.

Silver:

Don't get cherry silver
Get red if you're too stupid to make a decision for yourself or too poor or disabled to try them before you buy

Cherry silver is currently the best available linear switch in a mass market keyboard. But wait, gayman trash! You exclaim. Hold on there my young whippersnappers. The cherry MX silver, whole yes having a reduced travel distance, actuates so early in your stroke that it doesn't matter.
Silver also always has a new silky smooth retooled stem where as with every other linear you don't know if its from before or after the new cherry molds.
In addition cherry silver is lubed from the factory.
It is objectively the best stock linear experience in a mass market keyboard.
If you are willing to go custom I suggest retooled red or black stems in a gateron housing with GPL lube and 62g springs however.
