What Alps (or clones) are these?

Seems like plain old Yellow Alps to me. I believe some of them can come without the LED cutout.

Re: Deskthority header images v2

You can do whatever you want with these 2 pics I took when I made a craigslist deal of a 5140 at school lol. They aren't great quality pictures, but I hope that somebody can out them into use somehow.

Man, I wish I could've been there! It seems so fun to just dig and loot stuff. Too bad I'm in northern California. Wish the best of luck to everyone who's going! (someone get me a Model M/F if there's one from the pile for shipping price pls)

Re: Need help with Chicony KB-5152

I just have a small hunch it's an electrolytic capacitor giving up or disconnected. I'd say to check them, but of course, check the others too.

Re: Alps Appreciation

I just discovered that my ancient Harman/Kardon amp has a legendary Alps Black Beauty potentiometer inside. I always wondered why its volume knob felt superior to anything else. It's such a silky smooth and perfectly dampened knob action... Now I know that not only Alps keyboard switches, but also ...

Honestly, just ask around in Thai keyboard communities. (I got mine from an FB group.) They are't very common though, so it'll take a while to get a hit. You can also go find them in the many e-dumps that exists there.

Ways to achieve NKRO?

I'd like to make an NKRO keyboard in whatever ways I can; what are the ways to achieve this? I heard that USB has some limitations, but I don't know much about that. I know the fact that I'd need diodes for the matrix, but that's all I really know and I feel like there's more to that.

Thai AEKII Caps.

I bought these off of a Thai FB group, hoping that these would have dye-sublimated Thai sublegends, but sadly, these have some really crappy silkscreen printing. For only $34 shipped internationally, though, I can't really complain. :lol: https://i.imgur.com/RkLdJGr.jpg https://i.imgur.com/jt4fNdo.j...
