Stackpole. See here.
Guess I was too stupid so use the search function. I've tried either stackpole or a stackpole clone (green switches in a Ti99 keyboard) and they were serviceable but not pleasant.

Re: [FREE-EU] Rack/Tray mount keyboard-mouse combination

Neat, the touchpad location seems much more usable than Cherry's 11800 or 11900 (which were similarly based on the 1800 layout). It reminds me of this monster I've been working on (which came missing the rails and still need a serial converter for the ball, but someday it will be the meatiest 1800).

Re: [WTB] Czech sub/legend keycaps

CRP Peacock is probably your cheapest option, but I don't think it supports ISO (I think you could steal an enter key from an ePBT kit though).

Sets should be shipping in October, but Drop and Hammer don't have the best track record for meeting their own deadlines.

Re: Looking for a 5-pin/PCB mount, hot-swap, TKL or full size keyboard

Nobody uses PCB mount switches. Why on earth do you try to enjoy things while thinking of not destroying or ruining them? Enjoy them while they last. What? Any PCB that doesn't support 5 pin switches is just a poorly designed PCB. 5 pin switches are better for alignment in all boards, and a complet...

What DIN5 connector is that? It looks a lot like the plug on my Unitek K151L (a shameless F AT clone), only with a satin finish. I can only imagine it's meant for making premium MIDI cables.

The only metal detector I have right now is a Garrett Ace 250. I thinks it's from the early or mid 2000's, so it's probably not particularly collectable.

Re: Consul 262.3 terminal keyboard. New!!! In the original packaging, documentation.

The item is posted in the "for trade" section instead of the "for sale" section, so I thought you wanted to trade it for some other item, but I'm not sure what kinds of items you're interested in trading for.

If you instead want sell it do you have a price in mind?
