Re: Garage find

try using two spoons placed underneath a keycap and opposite each other. Then pry up.

Re: Garage find

If you can remove a keycap you should try. It either has white switches or blue switches. In the latter case you've got something on your hands worth a few hundred bucks!

Is there something I’m missing about that f107 price? Why did this one go for so much money? It appears to have original cable and be unrestored, did that have something to do with it?
I think we're all just as confused.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Any ideas? Bought in on impulse, worried it is f&f, already opened refund even though it was only $15 (albeit with $30 shipping and $10 import). Did you really get it, cause I've got it in my hands right now?? 16023456581633780495259905357478.jpg He said he opened a refund, haha. BTW I believe that...

is this a blue alps keyboard? i know that the black version of the canon hd40 is, but the grey... judging by the bloq num and mayus lights i don't think is even an alps board, right? seems more like cherry. Anyone knows?
It is not an alps board, based on lock light shape and position

Re: Green versus Yellow ALPS

i believe it's material differences - slider/housing material specifically. Also second gen switches come with short switchplates too. Springs are different as well.

Re: Green versus Yellow ALPS

Oh absolutely. Yellow alps are a gen 2 alps switch, whereas greens are gen 1. Quality of gen 1 switches are typically better than successive gens.

[FS] Epson AT board with SKCL browns

Selling my epson board with 9+/10 SKCL brown alps! For the uninformed, SKCL brown are a heavier linear first-gen alps switch, and are quite rare! This board has switches in damn-near 10/10 shape, but I know it's not NOS because there is a bit of shine on the keycaps. Here are some pics of the board:...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

i dunno that 85 is that much of a low ball, I wanted to try and get it for around $100 after shipping. I personally don't feel there is anything wrong in setting a budget and trying to stick to it. Certainly not a "just because" for me in this case, though I do that a lot with other things. if the s...

Re: IBM 3278 Beam Spring

Let the man sell his board in peace, IMO. He's not doing anything shady - in fact it was wise for him to come here and get a price estimate.

Having said that, I would just take the 2k that was offered to him if I were in his shoes. No need to let it sit on eBay for a few weeks.
