Anyway, welcome on DT and nice collection

Nice lighting. Your collection isn't complete though. You need an XT and 5155.

Welcome to DT!

Welcome to DT!
For my personal desktop I switch between a 401 and a HHKB (for gaming). The 401 is used whenever I have to write a lot. The HHKB is usually at work as it's easy to just drop in my bag at the end of the day and it doesn't drive co-workers mad (also, I don't really care about it ). If I ever have a huge document to write I sometimes use the M15 because it's just such a pleasure to use.

The annoying thing about Scotland (besides its low and brief winter light, as a photographer) is that this was once a proud keyboard making land (half my IBMs are from Greenock, of course) yet there's no sign of it at all these days. The only mechanicals I ever see are Tipros and Access POS boards, punched by chippy clerks. (Although fortunately not in Chippies, because you can imagine how they'd look.)
