Bought from another forum member. Let's see. That's a 10u spacebar and a 3u = key on the numpad. Cool.
I regret to inform you that this is not the 10u spacebar. It's 9u.

That's it, really; nice board :)

Wrong Cream... if it's actually Cream and not Ivory/Cream Damped, then that's some heresy putting White click leaves in.

Re: Alps Double Shots

Does anybody know of a standard extended keyboard layout which has Alps doubleshots? I have a couple boards which have Alps double shot boards (Leading Edge DC-2014 and the keyboard unit from a Toshiba T1600) and I really like them but I'd like to have a full-sized, preferably ANSI, board with them...

Re: Find spares parts from old keyboard

The fix shouldn't be too hard -- the switches are Cherry MY and I believe they aren't the worst to repair... you'll need some glue though, I think? (I'm not sure if the switches were riveted in or clipped in). As for the parts -- the switches will be easy as people usually just throw away Cherry MY ...

[WTB] Some KPT or KPT-clone switches

I'm mainly looking for the click leaves in KPT switches, the ones that look similar to Alps ones but are a bit smaller. No, not Mantis foot.

Re: Alps Appreciation

Took delivery of an ISO (qwertz) SGI granite today and it surprised me by having a switch I've never seen before. Bamboo cream damped. The sliders are kinda greasy like pine cream damped, and honestly the board feels pretty nice despite being dirty, very similar if not a bit better than my SKCM pin...

Yes, it should have Cherry MX switches, I'd guess black. They aren't super vintage though, being made in 1999.

Re: When did you first start appreciating keyboards?

I really started caring about mechanical keyboards at around early 2012 when I was staying at my my brother's friend's house. The friend's brother had a Razer Blackwidow (Yes, the 2012 one), and it was nothing like I've ever tried before. It was a novelty thing, and very expensive for me at the time...
