A Japanese Keyboard Adventure

I picked these up a while ago from the Yahoo auctions, and now that I am finally starting to dig into them I wanted to document my findings. https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/658690905779339308/710161785306611742/71173.jpg?width=301&height=463 Firstly an introduction: The blue Filco is a FKB-...

Re: Shiny chrome and gold Filco Mac ADB keyboards - any info?

Nice! Do they all have the same model number on the back? Just went to check and realized the beige one in the picture is not actually Filco branded on the back, but all three (the blue filco, the beige not-filco, and the beige filco not in the picture) have SMK QC stickers. (quick addendum: FCC ID...

Re: Shiny chrome and gold Filco Mac ADB keyboards - any info?

Watching this thread with interest. I picked these up a while ago, but haven't gotten around to doing anything with them yet. All are slightly different from yours, but the blue and beige one (and a fourth one not pictured) are Filco branded. They are all ADB. One of them came with an ADB to ADB cab...

Re: Wiki Hackaton

It depends on what you are looking for via reviews. I think that there is enough reviews out there but most of them will be the same since a lot of keyboards share the same switches. I don't know if this is really that practical in the long run but it's a decent idea. I was thinking something along...

Re: Wiki Hackaton

Not sure how hard this would be to implement, but I think it would be nice to have a "reviews" tab on the different keyboard pages. Something along the lines of what the Pentax forums does for their lens database. This way there is an organized area for more subjective thoughts on specific keyboards...

Looks like a NTC product to me, but I can't find any others with that kind of shortcut card.

Even then I would have expected production to be higher by such a late point in the year.

Cherry Serial Numbers?

I was looking at the box of my g80-3000LQMDK and I noticed the label listed mine as serial number 000018. Which I thought was weird because the production date is listed as L43 01, which would be the last week of October 1999. There's no way they produced only 18 boards in 10 months, right? Anybody ...

Tips for NMB maintenance?

Hi all, I picked up a pc122 from snacksthecat, and I started taking all the caps off to clean them and I noticed the sliders seem to like coming off with the caps. Is there some trick to taking off space invader keycaps, or any other things to know about servicing space invaders?

Not quite sure were to put this, but it might be a good opportunity for any Australians around Sydney. mK4M8dv4NNU I myself also saw some nice keyboards there. But many of them belong to some pretty rare computers. It would be better if they stayed with their original computers. I urge everybody to...

Does anybody know anything about this board? I picked it up the other week and can't find a thing about it. It has a 4P4C plug if that helps.
