You might be able to purchase a 7u spacebar from Matias. Send them an email to ask.
I've just contacted Matias, and they do indeed sell individual caps if you contact them directly! (At least for the spacebar.)

Thanks! :D

[WTB] ABS Black 7u Spacebar

I'm looking for a black 7u spacebar, in whatever mount it may be. Specifically, I'm looking for a black Alps Electric-made black spacebar, but I've only known a single board that comes with it, and I don't have enough money to actually obtain such a set just for a spacebar, so that's out of the ques...

Re: IBM Model F 122 clean up (before & after)

I just noticed that that the connector's pins are so bent! Otherwise, this is a great restoration! Love how IBM boards clean up so well.

Quite a nice set! Too bad about there being no homing keys. How are the Hirose Clears in there?
They are so nice! Extremely smooth, a nice sound to boot because of the stem. Feels very comfortable to type on too because of the light progressive springs. They're awesome.

Model F AT capsensing issue

So, I received a Model F AT a couple days ago. My first buckling springs keyboard! Looks great, feels great. Love this thing.

Re: Genius idea of the day

Keycaps with interchangeable stems... why is this not a thing yet? Getting them hand-aligned with the required submillimetrical position (so as they wouldn't look "crooked") would be a pain in the ass for most people (and downright impossible for gits with thick, clumsy fingers, like myself).

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.

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.
