That sounds awesome! Do you have any pics?

That IBM board is crazy! is that the first documented one?
There have been a few found on taobao before - but I don't think any has been officially documented. e3eves is currently selling some creams - though they might have been sold by now

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

The last set of amber alps sold on mm for around $600. I bet it’s above that now given none have been spotted in a very long time.

What would a kishsaver go for
A lot. I think easily more than $1,000 for a good condition OG one would be my guess in the current market. What will be interesting to see is if the value of them drops off after the ellipse f62/f77 project orders are fulfilled.

Re: IBM Model F 122 "restored" and bolt-modded

I have actually purged myself of all model Fs =( Sold them off to fund other alps projects or buy other alps boards. Admittedly, I do really miss them (the f122 in particular) but when I had them I always found myself wanting to use an alps keyboard after a few days of using cap. BS. I've been slowl...

Re: [WTS] RF84u // Pen Keyboard // Space Invaders board // 96x SKCL green

Added loose SKCL green alps. Also fixed the RF 84 image gallery - the pics had shown the case with the 89u WKL 10th-anniversary case - but pictures now correctly show it using a white 89u with the second generation RF logo.

Re: Alps Appreciation

because it uses shitcony caps, which stretch stems. Same with Montery boards. That's actually fixable. Take some pliers and put some cloth/paper towel around them (so that the metal tips don't scuff up the stem) and close the "gap" with the pliers by pushing them closer together. Don't press too ha...

I mean, anything is for sale for the right price! Just know by the time you get these keycaps, I will have enough gold from the badges of your keyboards, to start the next Gold Rush of 1849.
Well played.

Re: Alps Appreciation

Yes, i just edited my post. This is just my theory but i think focuses 2002 with blue sticker on backside have blues. Im based on my observation. :ugeek: That's consistent with my fk-2001 as well. I think the more telling sign is the placement of the "inverse" switch on the back. I forget which sid...
