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

As someone who don't have low serial or single digit, I have to agree that it seems unfair. I think it would have been fine if only low serial existed, but since single digit is supposed to be one tier up it seems unfair. What is the priority for the one unit custom printed keycaps? Will they ship w...

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

I took a look at my old Model F(pictured in another thread here) and it too has a half space before Up and no space before Dn. Considering it took this long for anyone to notice, for paying maximum homage to the original i would keep the half space before Up, at the very least i hope there could be...

The wiki doesn't appear on internet searches

I've noticed that the Deskthority wiki doesn't appear in internet searches anymore. Previously I remember it showing up near the top when searching for specific information on keyboards or switches. This was a great way to find information and what eventually led me to this forum. Now it doesn't eve...

What is your ideal switch for a laptop keyboard?

It is quite easy to find peoples preferences for desktop keyboards. But if you were to design a laptop. What key-switches would you use then? Laptop keyboards have to make a lot more compromises than Desktop keyboards. Usually because they need to be short so the laptop can be thin and portable. I'm...

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

If a person orders extra/custom keycaps will those get shipped with the keyboard? Or do you plan to ship all keyboards before you start doing the extra keycaps?

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

The boxes look good. While I think dark blue would have looked even better, the black looks really nice too. Now the boxes become like the IBM Model M badges. The earliest ones have black, later ones have blue.

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

We have space for an additional 1.75U in the 'Extras' group. I'll add a 'Ctrl' to it. Awesome! :) Also if there is room for one more 1U front-printed key. I would also add an Esc-key with ~ (tilde) front-printed. There are people who put tilde on a function layer that I think would be interested in...

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

I have thought about a key layout for my F62 and what extra keys to get. f62-hhkb-pc-at.png I made this layout inspired by the IBM PC AT. I prefer double directional ↹ tab key and a backspace key (rather than "Delete" key). Because those keys aren't available with text legends I go for an IBM PC loo...

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

I came up with a keyboard layout for the F77. It has dedicated media-keys and nav-cluster. Function-keys and system-keys are on a function layer. I'm not going to make this as I've ordered a F62 with HHKB layout. But I thought it was a cool use of extra/custom keycaps so I share anyways :) keyboard-...

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

They all have a uniform profile. So it is possible to swap two keycaps of the same dimensions anywhere on the keyboard. But they are mounted on a curved plate, so on the keyboard they will have a slightly curved profile.

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

I think the reason IBM put the text on the left side of the legend (which as you noted is inconsistent) is because they wanted the text to align with the text of the caps lock key. But that is just pure speculation. Anyways. I made a quick mock-up in GIMP on what text to the left and text to the rig...

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

While the PC keyboards had the tab and backtab symbol on the same key, most IBM terminal keyboards had two separate keys - the backtab was in the same position as the \| key on modern US keyboards (including the 4704) Yes! And since the key-sets for these keyboards have tab/backtab on the same key ...

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

Zed. I'm also wondering about the legends for tab key on the key sets. It is common for the tab key to have two arrows. One for forward tab and one for backward tab. Where the backward tab icon is on top (because backtab is entered with shift+tab). Currently the tab legend only has the forward tab i...

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

So if I understood correctly only front-printed functions keys and the non front-printed HHKB set can be ordered as sets, and other keys need to be ordered individually at a price of $4 per key. This becomes very expensive for me who would like a front-printed HHKB layout. Getting all the extra keys...

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

Thanks! Unfortunately, we are not able to do front printing on a 'Return' sized key. There isn't enough room on the templates for another 2.25U key and as I understand how Ellipse has setup the printing jig, 1.5U is the largest size that can front printed anyway. I believe that the regular HHKB key...

Thanks rvynf. The 1.5u Delete is the official HHKB legend but I am also not a fan. Like you, I would prefer a backspace in that slot (with a 1u Delete right above it). We know that just an arrow for backspace will work but until I start working on the lower case letters, I don't really know how the...
