What does it mean that these are dye-sublimted PBT?

The two most popular kinds of plastic are currently used for keyboards are: ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) - the most common keycap plastic used, tends to feel smooth, is durable, a tad cheaper and easier to manufacture than PBT PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) - tends to have a “matte” texture, a bit stiffer than ABS, a bit more durable than ABS, and doesn’t develop a “glossy” look with use over time like ABS, harder and more expensive to manufacture than ABS Sublimated dying infuses the ink with the plastic through a manufacturing process Elder Sage perfectly describes: https://drop.com/talk/27150/what-does-it-mean-that-these-are-dye-sublimted-pbt/2582700 The ink sinks into the keycap just a bit so the font doesn't wear out even if the keycap gets worn down. Hence “Dye-Subbed PBT”.

Are there homing bars on the F + J keys?

they are deep-dish homing, so no homing bars, but they have a "deeper dish" top than the other keys

No homing on the F J, and if there is a "deeper dish", it is not noticeable. I had to put dot-loc nipples on my keys.

I feel they are at-least as noticable as the 'deeper dish' keys on SA profile keycaps but I agree they need getting used to

I'll second the second. After about a month of using the keys, I think my biggest source of typos is still from (occasionally) having my home row fingers off by one key. I wouldn't go back, though. The deep homing dishes feel so nice on the fingers.

Can you share what exactly did you put on your F, J keys? I'm always missing my home placement because I cannot feel where F,J are.

I purchased the 65% keycap set and I'm having trouble finding a keyboard to put them on, any recommendations?

I believe the 65% kit was put together specifically with the Drop Alt board in mind.

What is an MT3 profile?

It’s similar to SA profile but each keycap has a “scooped” indent almost as if it’s cradling your finger as you press the keycap.
