    So... You want your overkill keyboard to have keys mushier and quieter than membrane keys... Say what now? What's the point of mechanical switches then?

    How can you send the keys back? They've already been machined and at that price it does not seem likely they could sell them elsewhere after you guys!

    As a CNC machinist... One of those caps can be made in about minute and half, two min tops.... and are defiantly not worth $50 each. The material alone is about 30 cents.

    He's forgetting the fact that certain handmade keycap designers sell like, 70-150$ PER KEYCAP. Not to mention, some premium keyboard designs can go up above 500$
    Not to mention everything about Taeha Types.

    if you smash your keyboard a lot when you play games, then look at this link. i have one and while it feels kinda weird, it works and you can punch tf out of it.

    If you were to choose the right manufacturing method i.e. high pressure diecasting you could probably get that under $300 if the order quantity was high enough

    Well I'm getting this keyboard but instead of brass I am going with Titanium as keys, I'm not allowed to use the CNC mills but I can probably do it on a regular mill. I already have to take my A500 cooler fan plate and face off about .025" just to give it enough clearance to fit in my case.
