Re: Fixing a 122 unicomp keyboard need help

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

Bass you have way too much fucking time on your hands. Cba reading your replies.
If this price wasn't a complete fucking insult it'd be sold already. My original point stands.

If people stopped overhyping the product and justifying this overpriced shit, maybe they wouldn't bother listing it.

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

a solenoid just turns it in to a bit of a joke to me. It's not like Model F's didn't come with solenoids. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pFoo_Mvluo I'd be lying if I said I don't have it turned off most of the time though. Having the option is it's own bit of cool though, like a turbocharger on a...

I'd personally stay away from model M's that have fixed cables unless you can source a USB controller from somewhere. The feel and sound will be basically identical to all Model M's unless you have a lot of missing rivets. Even Unicomps produced today will feel identical to the Model M's of the 80's...

a tightly bolt modded Model M feels just as good to me, though it's all down to personal preference. I've always liked Model M's more.
