Re: Recreating the Lisp keyboard (10 years later)

Oh man, you did God's work. Would be too much to ask for a more detailed talk about the keycap casting process?

Re: ReSKCM - Optical rework, and cloning of Alps SKCM/SKCL switches

Hi. I see you have quite a lot of inspiration and decision to actually do (at least) some really interesting experiments. If you don't mind I would like to suggest another similar switches to put an eye on, like Fujitsu magnetic reed tactile, HTK and ProWorld MX. It's clear that the leaf is the core...

Re: What are your keyboard projects for 2021?

Basically the same as the other members, finish my last year projects, but to give an extended answer which will be less boring, that means either do a rev5 of my endgame keyboard or decide that the rev4 is good enough to go for the construction phase. Some pictures of how the rev4 is going: https:/...

Re: Teclado Mecánico DELL AT102W (OLD GAMING)

Concuerdo con los demás miembros, es un precio bastante alto por ese AT102 específicamente, siendo que no es de los modelos más antiguos, con mejores switches y un poco mejor construídos (GYIAT101-102 y GYI3PVAT101 en particular). Los black Alps no son particularmente magníficos y los keycaps que tr...

Back in 2010 there was a Christmas meme of a kid staring to a dog wraped in gift paper and saying "I hope it's a PS3". The part number situation and the "I swear is not an M15" made me remember that :D Sorry.

Ok so I apologize if this is not the place for this but my father in law brought up this "old Keyboard" after cleaning out his garage. I am not a mechanical keyboard enthusiast but a quick search told me he had something special. I am very curious about how these boards are viewed and how I can fin...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

What are we looking at here ? Might this even be useable ? They look a lot like Olympia keycaps, but with a brighter colour. The switches are the weird part, they look like Futaba sealed linear, but the slider looks rounded instead of squared and the pin arrangement is completely different: https:/...

Re: Is it possible to convert IBM Model M flippers to capacitive?

It's not an opinion, I have several spares and keyboards to compare and I can tell you that my "matless" boltmodded model M not only doesn't feel at all like my models F, also feels almost the same as a model M barrel plate and pivot over a PCB. That's not the only experiment you can do, grab any bu...

Re: Is it possible to convert IBM Model M flippers to capacitive?

The problem with using model M flippers is that the feel will be exactly the same, the only advantage is making the keyboard capacitive. Ideally, a bigger flipper results in a crispier switch, so you can just reproduce the classic capacitive flippers or play arround with custom IBM compatible design...

Re: Was the VT100 keyboard really great or am I just experiencing nostalgia?

If I remember well, the VT100 keyboard has Futaba linear switches, I personally dislike them but some people find them nice. They're smooth, but heavy and have a short travel (around 75% of a normal switch or less). I remember seeing one at work, the keycap profile looked quite nice to be honest. If...

Might want to change that price now, 0.051BTC is now equivalent to about a thousand USD with how much prices have been soaring recently.
