Re: Great/Interesting Finds

We're currently closing the office, where I work. There came up this "Sun SSK" keyboard: Sun_SSK_2.jpg The key feel is quite awful - like poking a mattress, but the SSK layout looks interesting. What do you think? Should I give it some care and post more pictures or is it trash/not interesting? Id ...

Re: IBM Keyboard

Great find, but please keep the keycaps intact. Greek keycaps are quite rare and desirable, since they look very nice on a keyboard!
Dont forget to open the keyboard up (if you have the correct driver) and check the state of rivets. Best of luck with the restoration :)

Re: Do any modern Laptops have even halfway decent keyboards?

Most modern laptop with the best keaybord you are gonna get is probably a thinkpad X230/T430 with a classic keyboard mod (NMB keyboard ofc).
Chiclet doesnt feel bad, but the layout sucks.

Re: G80-1800, ISO-DE, w. coloured keycaps, also some PCBs w. MX-Blacks for harvesting

Considering these were cleaned and tinkered with, dyed keycaps and stuff, I don't find the prices to be outrageous :) Only downside for me is that they are ISO-DE, but if someone prefers that layout they would be great and fun keyboard These are great keyboards, especially if you put some foam like...

Re: Overall opinions on the IBM model M2

The most legendary Mexico manufactured Model M's are the black M13's, so there should be quite a few people who have used those. I find all model M's seem to vary quite a bit from each other in terms of feel and sound even if they were manufactured in the same month/year by the same manufacturer. I...

IBM Wheelwriter YU Cyrillic Dyesub Keycaps

Looking to trade these caps, have no idea how much they are worth. Mostly looking for keyboards (alps and IBM stuff - model F anyone?, plate mounted MX linear keyboards too, as long as they arent red ;) , will consider other 60%+ keyoards too, very interested in box navies, dark yellows, royals,...)...
