Re: [WTB] Keyboard with Alps SKCM Salmon or Black pine

I have found some fine Wang keyboard with salmon Alps. I am still looking for some pine black Alps.

Re: [WTB] Keyboard with Alps SKCM Salmon or Black pine

That would be good since I lack Alps mount keycaps and for me nice Alps mount keycaps are difficult to purchase.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

I have seen this case before. Looks like a wiki/Datacomp_DFK191 to me. You can have several switch options.

Re: [WTS] Datacomp DFK 192 - SMK 2nd gen. clicky ALPS mount switch [update!]

Ok, I understand. I also have some keycaps from a chicony 6251, which are thin abs doubleshots and some are pad printed to offer. I would sell these too if some just wants to try SMKs.

Example picture with some of the keycaps:

Re: [WTS] Datacomp DFK 192 - SMK 2nd gen. clicky ALPS mount switch [update!]

I thought the "real" keyboard enthusiasts are at deskthority and ebay is just a playground to them.

Someone can grab the board for 25 Euros.

Re: [WTS] Datacomp DFK 192 - SMK 2nd gen. clicky ALPS mount switch [update!]

since the spacebar does not fit on the other keyboard, where I wanted to install it, I add the spacebar to this blank keyboard.

Please make some offers!

PS: I did not know that clicky SMKs have that low interest in the community, although they are really cool switches.

Hi Deskthoritans, I have decided to sell this Alps SKCM Blue keyboard.

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

I proudly present you my first blue ALPS keyboard, a Datacomp DFK 102. My wife made a really cool Alps logo sticker for me, in order to cover this ugly Titan logo. I have swapped some keycaps from a Chicony KB-6251, which are somehow yellowed but are at least double shot. The switches have been in a...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Three Acer KB-102AS are up on German eBay, at least one with photo-confirmed blue ALPS. Pretty well yellowed, though... I have bought one of these and wondered about the differences of the labels on the back. On all three labels the model no. "KB-102AS" can be seen, but their serial numbers are sig...

1. Don't write them emails, go there and visit them. Explain to them what your intentions are and proof to them you're serious about it. I have sent them an e-mail since I live in the middle of nowhere (Greifswald, Baltic Sea) and from time to time I visit Dortmund. So I assume that I will not find...

I want to do it like Chyrosran and Wodan do it but somehow fail. I have written an e-mail to a big recycling company here in Germany and kindly asked if they would let me in and let me search on my own for garbage keyboards. The reaction was not so kindly and they told me that according to German la...

I need a replacement cable of XT/AT-male type and a connection to the pcb, shown in the following picture. I am not quite sure how common this type of connection to the pcb is, maybe I have to solder something. It is a cable from a Datacomp DFK 192 keyboard.
