You ever get those moments where you get interested in something, then glance down the rabbit hole and you can see so far it looks like an entirely different hobby? I've got a Ducky at work and a DasKeyboard at home and I can't even fathom having so many keyboards that I need bespoke dust covers for the ones I'm not using.
I mean if you do then more power to you, but despite the recommendation email I am clearly not the target audience for this.
actually it's a good practice to always cover your mech keyboard regardless of how much usage it gets.
stuff like dust, hair and dead skin gets inside your switches and messes with the lube. without a cover you're going to need to clean and lube it more frequently, unless you don't care or don't notice a difference. i always do and it annoys me that my key-presses don't feel the same.
but most keyboards come with a plastic box/cover, so of course you can use that if you don't want to pay $30 for a bulky piece of plastic.
Continuing the rabbit hole feeling, I've never even considered lubing either of my keyboards. I've blown the Das out with canned air a few times, but that's all the cleaning I've done on either one so far.
well, you purchased pre-built keyboards.. they were already lubed. assembly of these two is quite good actually. different story with the Anne Pro, for example...
just get a bloody cover ^_^ it doesn't have to be $30 plastic though.
