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

Leaving all these arguments aside - what most of us agree on is that we should be grateful for Ellipse (and contributing volunteers) for having created something outstanding. Thanks, volunteers and particularly Ellipse, for pulling off this really monumental feat that made it possible for so many o...

Re: Model F Technical Manual Project

I have created a small web page for the Model F Technical Manual Project that also provides the latest version of the PDF for download. In a later stage, I plan to provide also all sorts of keyboard layouts, firmware files and links to the respective github resources. Anyway, the webpage: https://ww...

Re: Removing BS Plastic Inserts from Barrel

Thanks for all the guidance - I am normally using the method of taking apart the assembly. I just wanted to hear from the experts here, if I am just doing it wrong.
If there are other ideas, I am all ears. It is not very common to change the inserts frequently anyway.

Re: Removing BS Plastic Inserts from Barrel

Straighten out a paper clip and bend a tiny "J" in the end. Reach in and grab the lip at the bottom, pulling straight up. You do not want to scratch or damage the inside of the column. That is what I tried also - didn't work as it sits too tight. The only method for me is to use silicone grease bef...

Removing BS Plastic Inserts from Barrel

I have been trying a few methods (Q-tip, tweezers, etc) and I never got the plastic insert out of the barrel, without either damaging it or completely ruin it.
Any guidance would be wonderful !

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

Been using mine for just over a week now and I just realised it has replaced my Model M Spacesaver as my favourite keyboard when I tried that old keyboard again. The key switches on the F77 feel slightly lighter (in a good way) to press than on the Model M. Now I want a new Model F with even more k...

Re: How to install F 4704 stabilizer tabs?

I just recently added those to my F107. The F107 originally comes with plastic inserts that have a different size. What I did is to remove the plastic inserts and filled the gap with epoxy resin that was already in the curing phase. Then I inserted the tabs into the gaps - they fit pretty nicely. I ...
