I have been using this product for several years.
Some of the Cherry switches have malfunctioned, and I am planning to replace them with low-noise switches.


Is it possible to assemble using [Wire for Punch-Downs] and [Cherry Key Modules with Punch-Down] on the 100 series PCB module?

Hi Sangmoon. It is possible to swap the cherry keys to the newer punch-down system as the pins on the Main PCB are the same. If you were to do this, you would have to switch out all of the keys (including small button modules) to the newer system.

We don't recommend it as it is harder to replace keys (have to redo the entire wire if it breaks) and expensive, but it is doable.

Here are all of the parts you would need to purchase:

We currently don't have any of the punch-down tools in stock so you would need to purchase one here:
