Doubleshot or dye sublimated keycaps for ALPS

Hi there,

I would like to buy a full set of doubleshot or dye sublimated keycaps with ALPS mount. I live in Germany and I would prefer shipping within Europe so that shipping costs should not become too high.

I appreciate any sort of offer! Thank you very much in advance.

Today I have received a Datacomp DFK 192 from a fellow deskthority member. I am a little bit uncertain about the switches. I assume they are SMK 2nd generation with ALPS mount. But are they tactile white or yellowed clicky blues? They are really loud for a tactile switch, so what is this thing??? 20...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The above requested keyboard is from "Inputronic" or "Solid Year". I have never heard of them and seems to have an AT-connector. But I am totally unsure if it is rubberdome or not.

€30 for an ANSI Model M that just needs some key caps sounds pretty reasonable to me.
I thought so as well, but only one potential buyer, who did not pull the trigger although I suggested to split shipping costs of 16 Euros.
Those wheelwriter caps buckling spring?
Yes, Sir ;)
