Re: Model M badge font

Round the corners with some scissors and laminate the label, it'll look pretty accurate.
Perhaps also try find some off-white paper to print on to make it appear more vintage.

Re: [WTB] Sony BKE-2011 Keyboard

I thought the BKE 2010 has topre? Oh man, are you serious? Why did you post this 2010, if it is obvious that the author is looking for Topre domes/keycaps or even a full 2011 board. This could somehow be explained in the case u linked 2010 with Topre. I've re-read this like 4 times and still can't ...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

It's not legit, look at the guy who came second in the bid war. He has a total of 15 bid retractions in the last 6 months alone. Probably an alt account of the seller, or someone trying to artificially raise prices. F107's should remain at around £500 - £700 value depending on condition. Even then t...

Re: Fixing Local PBT Yellowing on Model M

I would personally try what hellothere recommends. I'm just imagining that everyone is either a) going to buy a keyboard from me or b) buy an Industrial case, swap out the innards, and sell the result on ebay for $500. That brightens my world view. As long as they buy one of the black badges for it...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Why do these keyboards even need branding?
They're simply clones of an earlier IBM product, so to plaster someone else's name over what is ultimately a different companies design is quite disrespectful.

There was a note on space bar compatibility over on reddit that I wanted to post over here: Unicomp offers two 5.5U space bars, one known as "pre-2013" and one known as 2013 onwards. Only one is compatible with the Model F keyboard (don't remember which!). They are physically different designs. htt...

So, and this is an honest question here, if there's no difference between an industrial keyboard made my IBM and one made by swapping cases, why do they go for so much more if you can prove if they're real?
