Re: Keycap Acrylic Infill

Good job. Sticks nice? I tried something similar with my greek Selectric keycaps and didn't last very longer.

Re: Beamspring from Hell Restoration Log

Here in the Hell Republic we are pretty concerned with your disrespect and violation to the right to property. Give our keyboard back and pay a 100 USD fee or face the consequences at a federal court. Just jocking, such an adventure you have embarked on :D. Beamsprings are really tough, I will not b...

Saving our devices for posterity

Hello guys. Days ago I was thinking what would happen to my keyboards the day I can't take care of them anymore. The idea of all my IBM stuff or my two Apple keyboards in pristine condition potentially being recycled was pretty upsetting. Finally I came with, I think, the best possible solution to i...

Re: Mind The Gap - Unicomp NOS Industrial case

The gap in my silver label model M is almost the same as in your keyboard and the XT I had used to have the same issue. My 3178 and my F 122 are quite well centered. Looks like IBM engineers had some stupid errors :D

Re: Have you ever gotten scammed in a keyboard-related transaction?

Even though I'm not particularly responsible in my buying habbits, I can't really think of a time when I was "scammed". I bought a little IBM post-up flier on ebay for like $10 and the guy never sent it. I never followed up on it because I'm chronically lazy. I guess I'm more of a scamm er than a s...

Looking for dot style keycaps for reference.

Hello again, guys. Today I'm looking for some of the obscure Olympia or Nixdorf style keycaps, the sharp edged ones with dot-like set-offed tops. Two pictures can explain it much better: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/555514970033618958/680158777328140343/unknown.png?width=853&height=560 h...

Re: Have you ever gotten scammed in a keyboard-related transaction?

The NMB had a lot of bad disassembled switches with the contacts bended to death. Those "Space Invaders" are fragile and delicate. I have successfully removed and replaced them, but you must be very careful and patient. The "legs" are just wires and there is no strain relief! Even pulling and repla...

There is your fault also. You should always check properly before buying something
"How broken can a model M be?" I was thinking. It was worth for the price, but what a pain in the ass of seller. I already knew he was a scammer, but I wanted the keyboard anyways.

Alps SKCC's, SKFF's, SMK vintage linears and some other stuff is compatible. You can also use 3D-printed keycap lifters like the ones used in reproduction Commodores with Cherry switches.

I have been scammed by a guy who sold me a model M and an NMB 122 with black space invaders. He told me that both keyboards were tested and working, but they were in awful condition.

Re: reverse force switch interest

Hrm interesting. Part of the force curve is that you are putting energy into typically a return spring and it stores it up to return the key back up. I am not sure if it is possible to have a force curve as you want using normal metal springs. I can't remember how Hooke's law works, its been many y...

That's the Futaba sealed linear switch. I would love to see this keyboard working with good switches and not that piece of stiff crap. What do you want to do with the internals? Would be nice to know if I ever want to do the same with my Televideo keyboard in the same situation.
