Nice board. The switches sound great. I also wish I bought more of them and I have ~500 or so. They’re the best vintage blacks I’ve come across other than from a 1980s Commodore G80 and a mid-80s Kaypro 2000 keyboard I got recently.

This set really needs a 2.75u right shift. Many of the best ANSI WoB sets come from G81-7000 boards, which have the same layout as 1800. I think providing both short right shift (1.75u) and normal right shift (2.75u) would make the set much more useful for adapting OG sets. Also, I would like to see...

Would a Mid-90s Model M (made in UK) with Cyrillic sublegends be worth anything? I mostly collect Cherry stuff so I'm not too familiar with what IBM things are worth.

Matt3o refuses to rerun it for reasons best explained by Matt3o. I think it has to do with Not Enough Demand and the fact that never rerunning it makes existing sets Special (because they are so rare), a notion he likes.

The only thing that makes GMK sets from the US more expensive should be shipping. The Americans don't pay German VAT on keycaps from GMK, so we Germans have to when they get send from the US. If bought directly from Germany from GMK, VAT is already included, so the price for the keycaps alone is th...

Super interesting! It's interesting to see some substantial info to back up the vintage blacks, they are smoother after all. That drop in smoothness is crazy :shock: Have you done gateron blacks yet?

Hmm. In terms of all the Cherry MX Black switches I've tried over the years. They tend to vary a bit, some smoother than others. To me what's sad, is that there's this wide deviation. I'm also not surprised by your comment that some later MX Blacks were quite smooth (could've been new tooling for a...

Here's something I've been thinking about but don't know the answer to. Does anyone know what material is used for the top housing on Nixies (and other milky switches).

Hi HaaTa, Excellent work as always. I have a couple quick questions. First, what has your experience with vintage MX blacks been? I ask because they are my favorite Cherry switch, but I've found a bit of a range in smoothness to them (though my approach is much less scientific than yours), including...

GMK Carbon - Not just for the great colorway, but for the effort to support various layouts. It is unfortunate though that the international kit is just now being run. Maybe drawing attention to this could encourage earlier inclusion in future sets.

Yup, BTW, I see this has already been discussed a bit at the start of the IC. But I would vote for uniform R3 this set as opposed to sculpted. In some ways uniform feels more retro to me, and can make a few things easier (alternate layout compatibility, for instance).
