PLEASE NOTE ALL HAND LUBED SWITCHES ARE PRE-ORDERS AND CAN TAKE SEVERAL WEEKS OR MORE FOR FULFILLMENT.  IF YOU CAN NOT WAIT A MONTH OR MORE FOR YOUR SWITCHES PLEASE DON'T ORDER THE HAND LUBED (Sometimes orders go out within a couple of days but to be safe if you can't wait please don't order these).  STOCK IS LIMITED TO 500 OF EACH SWITCH TYPE (U4, U4T, LT, BOBAGUM) PER WEEK WITH A MAXIMUM PURCHASABLE QUANTITY OF 110 PER PERSON PER SWITCH TYPE.  THE STOCK WILL RESET ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS AT 11:59 PM EDT.  THE REASON FOR THE LIMITS IS TO KEEP THE FULFILLMENT TIME DOWN AS ORDER FILL TIME IS APPROCAHING A MONTH OR MORE.

CLEAR TOPS DO CAUSE A SLIGHT CHANGE IN SOUND PROFILE ON THE UPSTROKE OF THE SWITCH.

The Boba U4T is a tactile switch from Gazzew and manufactured by Outemu.  Sold in packs of 10. They are available with white bases and white or nixdork tops.  Nixdork tops are a white top with tighter tolerances resulting in less stem wobble.  The stem color is mustard yellow.  These are lubed to order and are lubed in the order that orders are recieved.  Switches are lubed with Gazzew's recommended method and his recomended lubes. PLEASE NOTE: Lubing is a time consuming process and fulfillment time can reach several weeks depending on the current volume of orders.  If you need your switches sooner please consider buying the factory assembeld switches found here https://kirballskeys.com/factory-assembled-boba-u4t/.

If you disassemble your switches please watch this video on the correct assembly procedure to prevent damaging the leaf and causing inconsistent tactility. https://youtu.be/8ZSlVkCLBWY

    Still the best

    I bought another four sets with clear tops and 65g springs. Exactly what I expected - feels great to type on them and they have that thocky report.

    Glad they offer hand-lubed, but need to fix casing issues

    Posted by Sky on Apr 20th 2022

    I got 70 switches and they arrived in a plastic bag. Not the end of the world, but that did mean a few bent pins. The big issue was that because the team had to open every switch to lube them, 90% of the switches had one corner not fully clicked into place and I had to squish them with a screwdriver individually to get the cases closed and flush again.

    Everything works great

    Purchased lubed u4ts and couldn't have asked for better. Every switch was lubed equally and the shipment was very quick. Had no issues whatsoever and really happy about the purchase.

    Great switches and responsive service

    Recently received these switches and have been greatly enjoying them. One of the switches was faulty, but the rest of them have worked well and the lube job feels very good. Unfortunately there was a delay in my order, but Kirball did great to provide me updates and make sure my order arrived.

    Work great but we're a little faulty

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 31st 2022

    Once I got the switches installed and started using my keyboard everything was great. But for some reason about 90% of the 90 switches I purchased had faulty housing. The parts that connect together on the switch were not secured tightly which caused the switch to not go in correctly. To fix it I had to squeeze tight and adjust all the switches to fix them. Ended up breaking three before I noticed the problem. Not sure if it was a problem with Gazzew or maybe a side effect of the hand lubing. Otherwise they work great! Note from Kirball: My luber was having some wrist issues and they likely did not close the tops all the way. Please reach out to me and I'll send you some replacement tops. I apologize for this it's not normal but this has been brought to my attention and I spoke with my luber and foudn out what was going on. Shouldn't be a problem moving forward.

    Excellent product, responsive service!

    I'm glad I purchased my hand-lubed switches from here. They are excellently modded with lube and the Gazzew springs and came quickly considering the delays in shipment caused by COVID and the holidays. I will order future products from Kirball's Keys and highly recommend his services.

    This is the custom switch of my dreams! Incredibly smooth, wonderful deep sound, pleasant tactile bump, minimal wobble - and Kirball was awesome too! He was very helpful in answering all of my questions, and he did an excellent job lubing the switches. Couldn’t have asked for more!
