Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Hey, I found this curious thing and I can't find any info online on that. I suspect a rubber dome but I suppose it's better to ask you guys :D FCC ID: FSQ811169 Seller refused to provide pics of the switches, unfortunately.

I can't see the image too. Can you please post the manual if you find it? I was searching for one for my own 3178 and there was no use.

Re: Apple M0110 keyboard review (Alps SKCC Tall Cream)

Nice review. I have an M0110A in almost NOS condition and the switches are by far the smoothest I have ever tried. You can also find weird unofficial attachments like the Mac Charly or some kind of a keypad with an incorporated trackball. https://www.old-computers.com/museum/photos/Apple_Macintosh_M...

I tried the Razer green from a Blackwidow and they feel like a linear switch with a clicky sound, absolutely linear.

My guess is that it would have changed all the characters on the terminal's display to uppercase (hence the legends that make it seem like another caps lock).
I guessed something similar, but I have no way to confirm it.

What exactly does the blue switch in the 3178 keyboards?

Hello guys. I traded an IBM model F XT to Karl Martin for one of his 3178 keyboards. After a little talk we realized that there is no info about what this thing do. What is the original purpose of such a weird thing?

Re: Foam & Foil Mini Monster - Phase 2: Ideation

To get a change in capacitance the metal (foil...) needs to move in relation to the pads. If the base of the spring is already against the pads (through the tape) you're probably not getting a capacitance change big enough to register as a keypress. Just thinking out loud... Well, Topre already wor...

If it's something good, I'm planning to buy it as the mounting plate looks pretty clean.
First gen space invaders. I have the same keyboard but with different branding. The keyboard itself is a bit cheap-made, but the switches are great.

Re: Alps SKCC Keycaps on IBM Beam Spring Sliders

Jesus fucking Christ, IT WORKS!!! The profile is a bit weird, but is definitely more tight. I'm testing it with SKFF keycaps which are about the same. The thinner keycaps actualy improve the sound.
