so i just wanted to let anyone know who are buying these, i would probably skip these sliders if you can find them anywhere else the sliders for me atleast was a bit odd as certain key caps had trouble staying therefore causing me having to mod them to fit properly

I would not have bought this rubbish if I listened to all the review here....sign....
Only 10 slider is fine, others are loose. The Keycaps fly and fly
For my 55g Topre board MX conversion I ordered the JTK sliders from originative. Yes the left control and space bar is an issue. I had to shave and sand 1 slider to clear the smaller hole of the left control key. I left the original topre space bar alone. Then completed lubing and hypersphering all the sliders. For the stabilized wider keys I opted to shave down the outer MX pegs instead of drilling holes into the Topre board for clearance - I'd rather sacrifice a few keycaps vs making holes in a board.
After trying out the SA PBT, Enjoy PBT, JTK ABS and Tai Hao Cubic ABS on the 55g Topre, the Tai Hao Cubic had the best feel for me.
YMMV, but I think these sliders are worth a shot. I absolutely recommend lubing the sliders on a 55g board. Topre 55g is just divine with the lube on its own (as many claimed), and this holds true even more so for these any 3rd party sliders. Hypersphering was good but not critical.
Love my 55g Topre board. So much that I've never even setup my ktype.
Good luck folks.

I used EK "MechLube 2" Premium Keyboard Lubricant w/PTFE from Elitekeyboards.com.
You don’t lose the tactility or sound via lubing. I would describe the typing experience as more fluid and less stiff during typing with the topre tactility and thock. Before lubing the 55g, it was my least favorite topre board (I also have the variable weight silent model and the all 45g version)—After lubing 55g became my favorite topre board.
Hypersphere rings are for silencing. It’s nice, but I don’t think are a must for Topre boards as they aren’t nearly as clacky loud as cherry style mech switches.

for me, my hhkb felt linear. No tactility! But sound was niceee
welll people should be aware that the space bars for the TYPE HEAVEN wont work either, so just be a aware as i do before i ended up taking mine a part
You too can make you HHKB garbage for the low price of only $34.99.

hey now. Sliders are the new thing dude , dont you know...

Oh, he knows, he knows that JTK sliders are trash. On a scale of 1 to 10 rating the types of MX sliders out there I would say JTK are a 3, KBD are a 5, 3D printed are a 7 and Novatouch sliders are a 9. People are wasting their money buying these.
These sliders works for most keys. However, for large keys, you may have to drill the slider shell that's on your HHKB or Realforce. You cannot use these sliders for the space bar. And The left control on Realforce have different sliders than other keys.
I read that the JTK sliders have a issue when modding HKKB space bar can anyone confirm its going to be this brand?

Read the last bullet on the Specs.
I hope KeyClack guys will bring to market a better MX slider soon. Unless these were fully redesigned recently, problems reported in the past are not ignorable.

You know whats funny is I ordered these through CTRL-ALT-IO (like 2 years ago now) and never got them - despite a lot of back and forth with their "customer support" guy.

I got mine. They are crap. some of the sliders are crooked to the point that you can't even insert the cap. Some fit, but the cap is crooked.

You could try messaging Bunny on GH. He's been shipping sliders to people as a part of buys, and the response there has been more favorable than in this talk section.
So, This fits to HHKB except space bar? J-DROP
These are brilliant! I remember when Matt3o on Geekhack prototyped an early version of this idea on Shapeways. I used to have a HHKB and now I wish I still had it!
You see the imperfections on the side of the sliders in this image? https://massdrop-s3.imgix.net/product-images/jt-keycaps-jtk-mx-sliders/361A8859_20180108151052.jpg?auto=format&fm=jpg&fit=crop&w=955&dpr=1
Those are the reason I got rid of mine: a lot of sliders get stuck on the way up. If you get these, I'd recommend sitting down with some sand paper and fixing these, because as they come they're not good.
HADHAYOSH
Same thing happened to me. I had to sit down with a razor blade and slice off the burr marks on the side of the slider... FOR EACH SLIDER. Really wanted to love them, but I'd wait for a revision where they put the burr marks on the top of the slider on the Cherry cross like you see on the Novatouch sliders.
HADHAYOSH
Same goes here, I had to sand them down one by one.
This include a set of sliders for Realforce topre space bar?
Azraelian

Ask me?? Try to plug the slider into the top plate hole, watch it closely and you will know where to sand.

Oops wrong person
I bought mine from originative and had issues with loose keys on these three keysets on a Leopold FC980C: GMK Plum, Hyperfuse Redux, and JTK Photo Studio. SA profile keys fit without issues.
"These sliders cannot guarantee the original feel of your keyboard."
Slightly concerning.

They do yea, they are meant to be quite a fair bit more stable and just better overall compared to the aftermarket sliders. It used to be common practice to buy a Novatouch just for the sliders for your HHKB/660C/RF but with JTK making theirs widely available and CM discontinuing the Novatouch (for god know what reason, the board was great) it's pretty much defunct now and mostly everyone uses these and KBDfans' instead.

You too can make you HHKB garbage for the low price of only $34.99.
Can someone suggest me the best way to shave/grind the slider for the left CTRL key of Realforce keybaord Or is there a better solution for this?
Himoremic
im in the same boat, i hate that left ctrl slider. I have cut/sanded them down. But i'm anal and would love one just made for me. :)
Fair price for single buyers, small groupbuys might still prefer chinese clones from kbdfans. To bad spacebar isn't supported, Coolermaster had been able to do that with their Novatouch. Well chosen installation pictures with GMK Carbon, Topre orange spacebar does fit quiet good with Carbon orange. I do miss information of height compared to genuine Topre, chinese clones are a bit longer to make up for dampening!
So good to see this here. Now I might finally buy a Topre board and it'll be MX compatible. Because I sure as hell wasn't going to start collecting Topre artisans. :D You got me once on MX, shame on me, but you won't get me on Topre also, shame on you! :P
BrainFlush
Lol. I hear you.
