Re: Ebay Tai Hao Alps Keycaps???

I am 99% sure that those are mislabeled cherry stemmed caps. The water mark on the photos is from KPRepublic and I cannor find those caps with Alps stems on their site.

Re: Fullsize alps PCB?

Filco at one point sold a full size 104 keyboard with Alps clones, although they haven't made that board for years so it is quite rare. There is also BlindAssassin's Northgate board as was mentioned earlier but you will need to source a Northgate plate and case to use it, as well as a teensy 2.0++ a...

Re: Alps Appreciation

I dub thee "Nexios"! Nexus sliders in Matias housings with respective springs and leaves. They are super tactile although the click leaves don't always click in them. Some of the nexus sliders are too big for some of the Matias top housings, the tolerance is really tight, but most fit well and the ...

Re: Alps Appreciation

I have seen dozens of M0116s and have never seen any with anything other than all oranges or all salmons (minus the lock switch). This is cool, looks like 7 grain cheerios.

Re: Alps Appreciation

That plate looks like it's for the XD60 v3 which supports alps. That pcb supports cherry pcb stabs, which you would have to use with this plate.

Scrolling through ebay this morning and found this mysterious gem . Some googling revealed that this is a keyboard for IBM PC clones made in Taiwan. One person found MX Black switches in it but it was from a beige colored keyboard. Maybe someone here is willing to take a chance on it for <$100USD sh...

Lot of 4 untested IBM SSK 2s (dome over membrane). Only $150, not bad if you like the format but don't mind the dome over membrane business.

As it should because no Alps Keyboard should have that abysmal junk on any keyboard. Very juvenile and extremely bad taste :evil: . Even I prefer to use all AUTHENTIC key-caps that came with the keyboard, whether it's a Model-M or an OmniKey. Far better key-sets on them already without exchanging t...
