I bought a Drop + OLKB Planck Mechanical Keyboard Kit V6 and a Gateron SMD MX Mechanical Switch Pack (Clear).
However I discovered that the pins don't exactly fit into the two holes per switch of the PCB.
The two pins are spaced a little bit (about 1 mm) too far from each other and one of them is a bit too far (about 1 mm) to the front.
The guide just says «Place MX-compatible switches into the plate. Ensure pins on each switch are aligned with the corresponding switch socket before pressing a switch onto the plate to avoid damaging the switch or PCB.»
For one switch I managed to bend the pins a little bit and it worked, i. e. after I seated the switch I could get a keypress. However it was very difficult to find the exact amount and direction of the bend. I don't think I can manage to seat 47 switches this way. I destroyed four switches before I was successful with the one switch.
Is something wrong with my delivery? Are the Gateron MX switches incompatible?
