Are you still accepting orders for this? I'd be in for 131 or so of the stems if they work with clicky alps!

@Wingklip - Tungsten's pretty brittle, are you sure you want that? I would think if you want a non-rusting flexible metal you'd go with titanium?

Could you please amend my order to have a blue escape and ANSI enter key instead of the spare flippers and barrels - I have emailed to this effect and will top up the difference.

When will the pricing potentially drop? Did your beamspring cost less than this? This is more when converted and including shipping, in fact, I was going to buy this as my first mechanical keyboard until I saw the price tag lol. pls make cheap options in future xd This doesn't need conversion?

All beautiful, Zed! I think on a beige case any shade of grey is going to look a bit off but we can always paint the case to match our keycaps! In that sense though I think the schemes up there without grey (ie the white on black F62 and the black on white and white on black) would be most usable fo...

I think it would feasibly be not that difficult; the important part (the beam spring mechanism - everything else probably can be modified without significant difference to the keyfeel) seems very much like it's just two pieces of metal that are cut out of sheet metal and bent. Looking foreward to y...

I assume that you are using a Soarer's converter (rather than using the XT on, well, an actual XT computer). If this is the case, you may have to just reprogram the print screen key to a macro (i.e. shift + prtsc) if it's not already working. Soarer already has included how to do so in his documenta...

Had another thought (which if implemented obviously means a lot more work for you, rsbseb, lol): Buckling spring keycaps are all the same profile, just on a curved plate. What about the possibility of different profile keycaps for different rows? This would of course be annoying because you can't fl...

I personally don't use homing markers - I don't rest my fingers on the home row when not in use (and as a pianist you just know where the keys are by feel and good positioning). That said, if I were to use them, my preference would be for deep dish (none of this poking out above the key stuff - comf...

I think the beamspring (or selectric, for that matter) legends would be the best with symbols where possible as suggested above (probably makes tooling easier as well as it would probably be easier to make a wide UP arrow rather than "SHIFT" (especially with kerning issues, ha) - which was present o...

SBS is looking great! Have you decided how you'll apply legends to the dark colors? The only good way there is - Doubleshot ;) SBS will sit about 1mm taller than the factory caps in order to accommodate the inserts. Aww yiss. Also, I think the taller the better as well (within reason of course - ca...

I am totally in for a set of these (or two, or three) - I would prefer white legends on black keycaps but honestly any original colour scheme used on any beamspring keyboard I would be in for (white on grey modifiers, black on white alphas, etc). The only request I would have re: the bottom row is f...

Hi Ellipse, Probably a bit out of left field, but since you are already trying to make new buckling spring keys, is there any chance that there could be spherical profile B/S keys made instead of the cylindrical ones (one piece XT style of course)? I know it's a bit of a long shot especially conside...

That's beautiful. Certainly think I made the right choice with anodised black after all that thinking.

How heavy is the compact case F62, out of interest?

Right. I think I got a surprise when you listed that ANSI with split right shift (which one person ordered) as separate from the orders for HHKB split shift and standard 2u backspace. Obviously as I'm ordering blanks these will be the same in the end for me. No changes required, thanks!
