Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

How much is an Omnikey Ultra with the original cable worth? Board is 9/10, but it's yellowed. Very, very clean otherwise. Switches have been opened and given a Chyros "soft clean" (dust housings, sliders, wash click leaves/springs) and are now a 9-9.5/10. Keycaps are also in good shape, but also ye...

Re: [WTB] Wang 725-3770 (US or UK layout)

I have a 725-3770 with orange alps I'm not really sure I want to let go of, but I can entertain offers if you really want it. 9/10 condition. As solid as it is, I have one too many orange boards and if I'm gonna pick just one to keep it's probably gonna be my AEK.

Re: Typing Demo XL - Alps integrated dome (Pioneer AWX-323)

who could be so cruel as to request this?! theres a special place in hell reserved for alps integrated domes. I cant tell if they feel the way they do due to old age and deterioration of the rubber inside the switch, or if they were just designed to feel that bad.
