Re: Possible Unicomp SSK

Can't believe this is actually happening. I always thought Unicomp were just fucking with us. Time to sell those original SSKs lads n lasses! That's assuming that is not a years (decades?) old prototype they dusted off for the picture... Tooling is new, prototype is new, parts are new. Boards are s...

Re: Typing Demo XL - capacitive buckling springs (IBM 4704 Model 400 "F107")

Very nice mate!

I do miss mine a lot, it's my all time favourite keyboard, but I rotate keyboards too much to justify keeping it. I like to think it went to someone who gets more use out of it :)

We need f107s to be found by the hundreds and flood the market with cheap prices. Kishavers too!!

Re: Post your desktop.

I feel I've made enough changes to justify an update. Or at least it feels like it having spent the best part of a day sanding my desks and oiling them.

I think it reduces the amount of noise resonating inside the keyboards case, correct me if I'm wrong.

Elrick, if Ellipse wants to do something, he will. If he is capable of organising the reproduction of Model Fs then he is more than capable of deciding for himself what 'extras' to include.

You don't need his name scribbled on some random sticker to know who was the mastermind behind this project. That's a lot of extra work for him. I want these keyboards asap, lets stop adding pointless shit to his workload.

Definitely open the case and check the rivets beforehand. Its also worth mentioning that you can do partial bolt mods by drilling straight through the rivets and putting a bolt and nut or screw through it (no disassembly required) but obviously there's always a risk of something going wrong

I think Hypkx offered this service, and I am pretty sure he's German, or at least European. Drop him a PM in case he misses this thread
