After 5 years working as a keycap maker, this is the first time I try to make a cherry profile spacebar, yes, the spacebar in cherry profile…
a bit of history
What do we talk about when we talk about 8-bit? Well, there’s one thing we’re sure that it was, has been, and will ever be the golden era of the gaming world. Flashback 37 years ago, we wanted you to take a trip down memory lane, to reminisce about the very first time you held your console that’s taking the world by storm during that time and marking the start of the third generation of video game consoles. This period saw the dawn of 8-bit handheld consoles originated from Japan, and their legendary games coming along.
another world unravelled
To human’s eyes, the 8-bit gaming world seems to be only presented with the more improved visual and sound capabilities than the previous generation, but somewhere in 1983, up in...

May from the Gray Studio has designed and prototyped a premium, 60-key CNC milled, acrylic switch lubing station. The lubing station has been optimized a few iterations and prototyped to work very nicely with various switches.
Potter will consider holding a GB on Graystudio.club soon if there is enough interest. The cost will be a bit higher than 3D-printed ones but affordable.
Actual product images below. Interest check on Geekhack posted by AirPotter: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=106668.0
Placed my order at the beginning of the month, no tracking was provided when it was shipped out on the 7th and still no sign of them. Went through costumer support but still no reply and the automated response keeps linking me to Zomo kitty paw pad keycaps for some reason (if their delayed merc arrival is related I wouldn't know since the page does not mention Astrolokeycaps at all) It's my first purchase on Drop so maybe I'm missing something?
A Drop ENTR Review
This review is dedicated to anyone, like me, who was wondering “Why would I consider a $90 Mechanical Keyboard?” The last keyboard I "bought" was a $12 Rosewill keyboard for my gaming PC, and the bluetooth Apple Keyboard that came with my iMac is pretty nice… both functional after years of use, but I saw a giveaway contest for the Drop ENTR, and I had to enter and find out what mechanical keyboards have to offer. Short answer, these heavy, springy keyboards have a premium feel, and considering you have to feel keyboards to use them, I would recommend them as nice work from home upgrades that you can personalize.
First of all, thanks to Drop for sending me the ENTR after their Twitter giveaway, and allowing me to check out BOTH versions of the mechanical switches. I used the Gateron Yellow switches (in the two tone gray/green keyboard) for two weeks, then the Halo True switches on a black ENTR for two more exclusive weeks, before coming together to share a review...
