wobble's "passion" regarding the pricing of an item can really only be seen as an serious interest in purchasing said item (at a lower price), or possibly jealousy..?

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

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...

Re: Mind The Gap - Unicomp NOS Industrial case

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? Would that guys keyboard be worth $800 if they're identical? It literally comes down to the ...

Re: Mind The Gap - Unicomp NOS Industrial case

I've found about 15 examples of IBM / Lexmark 52g9700's on ClickyKeyboards.com and all of which are cream cases with blue badges. Didn't see any in industrial grey cases, other than his. I think the Industrial Model M's are 1394946's, and they probably have a completely different code for the Lexmar...

Re: Terminal Model M Cable Re-coiling Attempt (heat gun)

to be fair the thick Model M cables aren't that great at collapsing back together either, even the brand new ones from Unicomp kinda suck at that.

Yep that's definitely a replica badge (he didn't buy from me though, as I've never given him any ebay feedback, unless he's a deskthority user?)

Re: Terminal Model M Cable Re-coiling Attempt (heat gun)

It could be that the material is just too far fucked, for lack of a better term. I used to do a similar thing on my Model M cables, I'd stretch them out for a thorough cleaning on every side, then reform it. To do that I'd run another cable up the coils (I used a really thick TRS audio cable) then I...
