@fortifieduniverse @viennawriter @maikek @hanser @le_ArthurDent Mostly success! Switch was largely unstuck within 30 or so seconds of applying IPA while toggling the switch. It's not back to mint condition, in fact while writing this the key action got more rigid again, but I can use the key again for now, that's the critical success anyhow. :) Thanks again everyone for replying and boosting, you helped me out a great deal! \(^ヮ^)/
@freebliss You're very welcome. A while ago I nerded myself into mechanical key switches and found several interesting comparison sites - in case you'll have to exchange it, maybe this will help.
@viennawriter yay that's a great overview thanks! the mentioned hot-swappable switches are definitely something i'll be closely looking at if and when i need a new keyboard at some point :)
