TMX Success!

RocketGruntJakeComment

So initially upon receiving my TMX model from shapeways I was met with disappointment and failure. I ordered two stems of varying dimensions. The smaller one fit snug to mx but wouldn't even slide into the topre housing. The larger was somewhat lose on mx and snapped into the topre stem. The fun part is it would not snap back out...

I had to go the nuclear option and brought my HHKB into the keyboard ER to remove this failed stem😬 . That was yesterday. Today I had the smaller stem in my hand while watching one punch man and I don't want it to go to waste so I decide let's sand it down and see what happens, it actually worked!

Here are a few picks of the fit. 

 Snap Fit on Topre!

 Very snug on mx, I can shake it by the stem and the switch doesn't fall out.

I'm very excited to get this into a spooder to see the fit on a board. I'll be sure to update everyone when I get it working!
