K70 repair and rebuild
« on: July 14, 2016, 04:29:41 PM »
At work one of our corsair k70s got damaged by the cleaners. This sucks for the owner whom will have a new one tomorrow but his used one I will be taking and repairing.

Supafly pointed me to https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_list&c=43 where I will order a new switch to replace the broken top with.
This will also give me a chance to swap the springs for 80g silent ones and work on a silencing pad on the kb I have wanted to try for some time.

Should start the project with just glue for now, which will repair the cap till the new ones come in but I will make sure to post pictures.

What color should I paint the kb?
Thinking either white or chrome as I have tons of chrome paint haha.
Or maybe even go blue?

Chrome or gold metalic would make for a sweet custom keyboard

I like that idea... hmm I'll post some photos later I did a basic repair got it all working  and tried the dampening idea it works but my cuts were bad so it had issues.

Well... at two bucks a sheet you can afford to make errors during the trial and error stage. All it costs you is time :P

The broken key


The Felt


NSFW Nude K70


Maybe the switch is just shy... or maybe he needs a little blue pill :P


It should fit

Fast forward. no stop...no play :P


Switches welcome back to the world of the living


It should work it should work


Doesn't look half bad



All done, it works but I would recommend doing this with felt and double sided tape and taping the felt down in strips, I will test that later :)
