Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Definitely glad I went with matching low serial numbers on my F77 and F62. Maybe I'll end up retiring my trusty XT.

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

I wonder if my matching number boards will come in the same color boxes.

Yes, keyboards ship in order of when they were ordered. I do not prioritize blank key cap keyboards.
What about low/custom serial number boards?

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

This means that assembly will likely finish in July despite the factory's expectations to finish around the end of June. It's now the end of July. Has the assembly finished? The factory is up to 800 keyboards assembled. We just reached 1700 keyboards ordered! Have they shipped the 800 assembled key...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Would it be possible to change either my F77 or F62 order to a low serial number or am I too late for that?

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Great FXT! Yes the spacebar for the project is Model M style for maximum compatibility. Someone used to sell spacebar adapter stabilizer wires to allow Model M spacebars on certain Model F keyboards if I recall correctly. Or you can alternatively switch the original spacebar tabs with the new ones ...

Re: (Model MF) Remodeling the Model M (aka.. the Mara)

Adapters seem like an excellent idea but they don’t work well in practice. I recall there’s a picture of these BS to MX adapters in action (can’t seem to find it) where the caps sit real high and wobbly. I’ve used Alps to MX adapters myself and they suffer exactly the same problem. You have to seat...

Ellipse, do you have an estimate on how long you'll keep extra spring+flipper assemblies and cases in stock after the keyboards are done being made, or will it be an instance of "while supplies last?"

I second that for sure. He put a lot of work into saving that beamspring that didn't even look good enough to be a parts board.

Nice find! Can this trackpoint work with PS/2 only? Actually, it seems like it's got a serial connector, so you may have to do some adapting, possibly converting. Some converters are keyboard-and-mouse 2-in-1 jobbies though, and for the keyboards I've tested it with, that's worked, at least. I'm pr...

I don't have any pics ATM, but the one JP linked looks like it doesn't need any trimming. The one I bought had two little ears on it that made it too wide to fit inside my F107 without cutting them off.
