I still think milling machine is a bit over lol.
BTW for me i think metal key cap is not hard to make either with milling(expensive) or mold(need mass production) the problem will be leg which connect to cherry MX switch.
I don't think any milling machine can do that only mold able to do such design.
If can i more somebody can come out with design of metal keycap plus PBT/ABS leg
which i think is more easy to produce. All we need is one more step to glue them together.
And if really any factory can mass produce blank kepcap like i mention above all we need is a small machine to draw or craft any logo we want on the keycap like what shopping center stall have done on their keychain. Can even craft our own name >< haha
What u guy think abt my idea?
Same idea as I had months ago. That way will also cut the cost of metal used, LOL.
But I suggest if we can use other way(instead of glue) to stick both material together, it will be more awesome. Glue will have some thickness and kinda hard to fit them properly.
I suggesting that to make everything simple, we get a almost square shaped metal plate of around 3-4mm thickness as the top of keycaps and drill a shallow hole(1-2mm depth) to fit in plastic stems onto it. Kinda like the design of mushroom...
It should be quite cheap and easier to made yet doesn't lose too much classiness, LOL.

I'm thinking of selling my Majestouch AI 2 at this price when i got my Majestouch AI 1 back from taiwan, if the warranty goes through that's it.
LOL i suggest you start praying that they will gave you back a AI 1, not the new AI 2, LOLOL.
If the main reason you prefer the AI 1 is due to the golden logo, then you should remove it and place on your AI 2(not sure if both using same mechanism).
Once saw in GH that some ppl mod painting his FILCO together with logo...
Then poke out someone tell him that the logo is removable. This post has been edited by Human10: Sep 30 2011, 01:36 PM
