The shipping is a real hit, but those keycaps are fab and I'm pretty sure this is FLS.

I asked the seller for the part number and he reports a 46010A. For the chance to try FLS that haven't been through the ringer, I'm down. Figured, somebody else might want the other.

My Wyse is M4. Try your local hardware store or auto parts dealer before you order online, cheaper and faster.

Cool idea and executed well. Myself i would not have missed LEDs at all, and prefer to not connect them on DIY kits. Thanks! Yeah, I don't normally either, but when I had the idea for this particular board it seemed cool enough to do anyway. Very nice! Seems like you surpassed my own project :) . :...

I found myself with a spare evening and decided that I wanted this thing done. I can really live without lock lights (I hardly ever use Capslock or Numlock in my everyday life, and Scroll-lock is almost obsolete). However, I thought of a great way to do the conversion, and I have spare pins on the t...

I'd recommend a soarer's converter. None of the APC-H41X's that have passed through my hands have given me trouble with a soarer's on them (either home made or Orihalcon's). It's a bit more trouble and expense, but worth it.

Hoo boy, it took me a while to get back to this project. I got a little ahead of my abilities both in documentation and in actually getting stuff done so I had to take a break and circle back. That being said: the conversion is complete. There's another small but cool mod ahead, but I'll get to that...

Cortron Foam and Foil?
Most likely as you can see the capsense pads on the back of the pcb. if it was a magnetic valve version you would have 4 through hole pins.
Thanks!

That Intelligent Scanning System 4000 board is freaking sweet. Lovely legends, weird labeled LEDs, and SKCC Alps.

I'm curious about that ADDs/NCR board. I've seen some with Omrons and Fujistus. Don't know about their protocol or anything though.

Looks like you got a little CRT too, unless that's not what the thing with a handle on the top is. That was the lightest CRT TV I've ever held. Really cheap feeling and ratty. No idea if it worked.

Liquidation Sale Small Haul

So an electronics company in my area went up for liquidation. Almost all of the lots were nothing of interest or things that I couldn't store. Somebody outbid me on the Toshiba TS5200, which is a shame, but they wanted it more. I did get one lot though for less than a tenner. It was a full shelf of ...

Peroxide also works well with heat instead of UV light. It's harder to pull off with cases but keycaps can be dunked in it and gently heated. But be careful ; too high a heat can soften the plastics and case them to warp, especially spacebars. If you''re a foodie and have (or are interested in) an i...
