Deskthority Corner at the German/FFM Meetup Oct 14th 2017

Heya!

I want to start this thread to invite all DT members to help setup a DT Corner at the meetup and coordinate which keyboards we are bringing in an attempt to have few duplicates and cover a wide range of different keyboards and concepts.

Please post here if you are planning to come and consider which keyboards other people have already announced.

I can also print stickers for all the keyboards we are taking beforehand so that we have a nice, consistent presentation at the meetup.

Hope you like this idea, post your gems!

This is in no way an attempt to prevent people from bringing a board that someone else already "claimed". I don't mind if we have 15 HHKBs sitting in our corner but this might help you choose your most favourite board and leave some other boards at home because you can rely on your trusted comrades to cover them.

I haven't announced any boards yet but I am planning to take a few selected customs and fill some of the gaps that we might find in the vintage keyboard presentation.

Another great idea from Kekstee was a nice HHKB lineup ...
I got a Pro2-TypeS JP Type-S and a Pro1A0 with HS rings so those would be nice
but also looking for some hypersphered Pro2s and different kinds of modded and stock hhkbs

Then a Model F corner would be awesome ... unfortunately, i hardly have any INSANE modelF keyboards. no unsaver, no kishy or anything ...
I don'T want to TAK a beamspring this time ... maybe someone wants to?

We need an ALPS corner of course. in another room ... that is not part of the meetup. outside of Frankfurt ... in a moldy basement heheheeh

Naw joking of course, bring your freeky-eeeky Alps you sick circle-jerkers.

Needless to say I will be at the Cherry table, one hand down my track pants, making people feel uncomfortable when I look at them smiling ...

Yeah, I could bring a regular Pro2 with HS rings and the stock Pro2.
It would be nice to have them next to each other to see the difference in tactility between generations and sliders/silencing.

In terms of Alps I have a SKCM Orange Alps64 I want to compare to other Alps boards.

I'd be curious to see my TXCP compared to other vb customs, so I might bring that anyway as well.

There's a simple ErgoClear pcb/tray mount 60 I can take and a plate/tray mount SilentRed build, to cover some switch types.

In terms of vintage I only have a stock SSK and Bigfoot available.

So...
* SKCM Orange Alps64
* vb TXCP

optional
* HHKB Pro2 HS
* HHKB Pro2 stock
* SSK
* Bigfoot
* 60 SilentRed
* 60 ErgoClear

Just a head's up:

Last time, you guys brought LOTS of keyboards. :D I hope it will be the same this time.
The location is a skyscraper, so you can't just drive up to the front door with a car full of electronics.
However, we are there to help. If you want to bring lots of keyboards, please send me a private message.
I will give you my phone number and make sure that you can deliver the keyboards to the location and we will look out for it, while you park your car. :)

btw: I would bring my 65% collection (Leopold F660M/C, Whitefox, Tada) and my Novatouch

Can't come this time. Please re-schedule it to next month, so I could bring bags with phase 2 key caps and show how I sort them into kits.

I would have loved to attend, too. Last year I was on a holiday trip, this year it won't work out because I'm on a conference in Leipzig that weekend.

Please please "save the date" early next time so I can keep it free. Given my sparse schedule, this was really bad luck.

Sorry to hear that. :(

This year we published the date in June, not sure if we can make it even earlier, but we can try.

Thanks! Yes, it was about two weeks after I had fixed the conference... :(

I'm quite hopeful that it will work out next time. Sounds like an awesome meetup, and I'm only 100 km away.

I'm planning on bringing my TX collection (TX87, TX-CP and TX-1800 v2), my Topre collection (RF87u, RF88ub, FC660C, FC980C and a Norbatouch, all but the 660C have Novatouch or JTK Sliders), a M65-A, a TINA-C and maybe a Revo rj HHKB. Could also bring my ISO Whitefox, Pok3r RGB, Pok3r with wood case and a Varmilo VR68M.

All depends a bit on how much I can carry. :roll:

meh i might just not build any more keyboards and focus on preparing the ones I am going to take.

Can all participants please list their keyboards in this format:

Brand/Maker - Model
Switches - (modding if applicable)
Keycaps

I can print labels for all keyboards then!

Here's an example

TX Keyboards - TX-CP Round 1
Cherry "Nixie" Blacks - 52gr. Springs, PC films
GMK Carbon + extras

Oddforge - VE.A Round 1 B Stock
Cherry "Vintage" Browns
GMK Carbon + extras

Let me know if I am missing anything that should go on the labels.

Here's my list of what I currently thinks makes sense to take:

- HHKB Pro1A0 Hypersphere (For the HHKB Lineup)
- HHKB Pro2 Type-S (did I miss anyone bringing this?
- HHKB JP Type-S Novatouched
- Novatouch with my printed Topre dampening rings
- Realforce 105 Novatouched with SAD Caps
- TX 84 + Keypad
- TX-CP Round 1 Vintage Clears
- TX-CP Round 1 Nixies + brass
- TX75 "Kin25 assembly job"
- TX87 Polycarb version
- TX1800 v1
- LZ-Ergo
- LZ-Eisen
- VE.A B.Stock
- some Blue Alps board
- Model F-XT
- Model F-Bigfoot
- Model F-AT
- Duck Viper
- Duck Blackbird
- Nixdorf CT06 ? Just for the meme?
- X60 Nixie HHKB
- X60 VB WKL
- Minivan?
- JD45?
- Infinity 60 with the bent steel case?
- Tipro Space Cadet Board

Hoping for some feedback on the ? ones ...

I really like the idea of having a LOT of different TX-CP builds there. This seems to be a real favourite - just like the HHKB - and could be presented in a number of different configurations to show how much difference the plate material, switches, stabs and keycaps can make. oh yean and the switch modding and stuff.

Would love to see the Matrix Abel. I will bring my TX1800 v2 so maybe you could instead build the CLS Wodan?

I'll see if I can fit both inside my bag. I'm getting to Frankfurt by train so space is quite limited.
