I lost my head and lubed a mechanical keyboard switch. Help


I’m an unashamed keyboard nerd. For as long as I can remember I’ve loved writing, and whether it’s at the old typewriter sat in my grandparent’s spare room or the keyboard of that first Toshiba computer my dad brought home from work, tapping at a good keeb is my happy place.

But I’ve never felt as nerdy as I did sat there in my home with a tiny paint brush in one hand, a pot of lube in the other, and a $250 keyboard in bits on my desk. Brushing the sides of one of my Halo True mechanical key switches (opens in new tab) with a little grease had me wondering what had brought me to this point in my life.
