EDIT: also, did you say 6023?
Yes, it looks like a keyboard for SunOS. I will post more pics later.

Re: Alps Appreciation

Hey guys, I found a acer 6023 keyboard long ago and I have time to clean it today. I thought they were faded skcm blues but there are some bulges in the stem :o Remind me of gainsborough's KB-101A/TK So they are not faded blues? Any other ALPS stem like this? https://i.imgur.com/BGRncSg.jpg https://...

Those key caps looks super nice. From what board did you harvest those?

I tested the solenoid using a Xwhatsit solenoid driver and it works great. There is enough space for them in the plastic case.
The new version of PCB will be done very soon.

What do you think? Could something like this be workable?
If you use SKCC switches to do it, the top row keys will be really tall. How about Cherry low-profile switches?

Re: PingJunior: 60% PingMaster build

Wow, great work! Do the Alps stabilizers have enough clearance from the B3G-S switches? They are running smoothly, my few keys are overly thick for B3G-S (F, J, Spacebars). Most of alps caps should be fine. https://i.imgur.com/uFLUQEs.jpg Hell yes, very cool! Would def pick a PCB/plate up if you li...

And answer some questions here: Do you plan to run a GB or open-source the schematics or something? :) I don't want to run a GB because price of pcb+plate is about $20, but shipping fee will be more than $30 from China. That's really weird. So I will put them on TaoBao, maybe find a proxy can save y...

I can confirm. Maybe you can try to get some IBM 5556 caps, they are made for skcl greens.

Woahhhh!!!! That's so cool! What's it sound like?
I used FR-4 plate so it's pingless and I'm working on adding a solenoid or buzzer.
Switches are NOS from TaoBao, alpha keys feel great but I still need to lube multi wide keys to make them better.

Indeed! Also interesting to see SKCM Cream with a logo, don't think I've seen that before. Also fairly rare to see a non-NeXT with them in!
In the Wiki there is a photo with logo, but I'm don't know where that came from.

Re: Do B3G-S switches fit into standard Cherry plates?

Cherry plates use 14mm*14mm hole size, 13.5mm*13.5mm will be fine for B3G-S according to specification. https://deskthority.net/w/images/f/f4/Omron_B3G-S_specification_1986.pdf I'm also working on a project about B3G-S switches and I can get two variants NOS B3G-S switches from Taobao.
