Re: [IC] Paradigm ASK60 - a 60% Apple Standard Keyboard (M0116/M0118)

No, but it is easy to get hold of one relativley cheap here in China. All, a quick update from me. As a result of the IC, I began pursuing the option of a 55. Thus, the ASK55 has been born. I’ve been working on plates and bringing together the efforts of folk before me. I’ll update more when I can a...

Re: Alps Appreciation

But why? Skcm browns are much harder to find, afaik. Gambled on a videowriter and it paid off. It's a very complete unit, with the original box, instructions, floppy disks, and extra ribbons. I'm thinking about replacing the switches with skcl greens or something and trying to find someone who real...

Re: How would one make a very deep-sounding plate?

dense thick plastic case with steel plate. The plastic case will absorb and dampen all the high pitched sounds that a switch will generate and the steel plate is rigid enough that it will not cause pinging. The best example I can think of is vintage alps switches. They work best in their original Z...

Take it easy, man! I meant I use Monterey blues daily. They do not sound as nice as blue Alps for sure, not even close. Never knew that there were TWO distinct Alps Blue Switches. So you think the Monterey's were the cheaper alternative? No, Montereys are very different from blue alps: the feel, th...

Monterey switches (I use blue ones daily) have such a different sound than Alps that I am just not sure if the case plays a similar role in their sound effect. If you've got Blue Alps then why complain? They're decent switches in the Alps family that most here would kill for. For me, I ended up dam...

I found it surprising no one recommended AEKs or AEKIIs thus far. The build quality is super and their PBT caps are first rate. Plus you have an (almost) ANSI layout. And they are usually cheap to get hold of. The only drawback I can think of is that you need an ABD adapter and cable combo for a mod...
