Alps (and Matias) switches can benefit from some non MillMax type hotswap sockets.
I've been talking with Kailh about them making such sockets and the MOQ and price they've given me for the first order that would make the sockets happen is 100K MOQ at a price between $0.045 and $0.055 per socket.
I am unsure how will proxies work or if there will be any.
When I have any more information about that, or details, such as a color and a lifecycle of the sockets, or if any of the details change, I'll update the post.
The idea is that in the future, hopefully the sockets would be available for purchase from various stores or even from Kailh themselves. However, for the time being the goal is to make the first purchase as I can't afford to do it alone.
At the quoted prices, here are some examples of how many people we'd need at what quantity, etc:
