Replacement keys?

Replacement keys?

From:

Phil (or anyone else that knows),
  In desoldering the board to troubleshoot my a-star reset problem, I
ruined pins on some of the (non-modifier) keys.  My kit has no spare
switches, so I'll need to get replacements.

  My kit is, apparently NX-02 or NX-03[1], with Matias Quiet Click switches.

  It looks like[2] Matias only sells the keys in sets of 200.  I need 4
(but would take more, maybe 6, just in case...), so am reluctant to buy the
pack for $50.

  If I cover shipping/fractional cost, would anyone be willing to sell me
some?

  Thanks,
    Jeremy

I'll be happy to send you six at no charge to replace the damaged ones.

Let me know if your address has changed since your main order.

I appreciate that, but I know this is a personal side project and don't
want to cut your margin.  I'm happy with the 5-pack option that Emanuel
suggested.

Thanks :)

I get a much better price with my bulk discounts, but my packaging
people are currently on vacation, so if you're in a rush you can go
ahead with the 5-pack on mk.com. But it's not a big deal for me to ship
them out either.
