Re: Tai-Hao Olivette in Alps mount may return!

I'm interested in picking up a Tai Hao set for my AT101W at some point. Are the stabilizers compatible?

If they made any sort of Alps set in Cubic (especially Dolch) I'd be sold instantly.

Re: Mechanical Keyboards Are Thriving Because Apple and Microsoft Don't Make Them

My favorite quote from the article: "Of course, not everyone is ready to solder their own keycaps..." I'm certainly not ready to solder any of my keycaps either.

Re: Four interesting Alps switches

It looks almost like a capacitive Shitsumi Miniature Mechanical! Very funky. I would not shit on Mitsumi. I have got only one of their standard Mechanical tactile switches, but it feels very nice. That's the catch with Mitsumi miniature mechanical. They feel amazing as loose switches, but when you ...

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Plate spring... I take it you can't touch type at any reasonable speed since plate springs just turn to a mush at any kind of respectable speed. I don't know why anyone would willingly use those mushy switches. Even worse, if you store the keyboard wrong and something runs across the top, the switc...

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Blue Alps feel like a tactile switch with a clicker. White Alps feel more like a proper clicky switch. Plate spring and buckling spring switches wipe the floor with any clicky Alps in terms of sound and feel anyway.

What I want to know is whether or not removing the mat entirely will damage the membranes. That seems to be the best way to make the Model M feel crisp.
Have you done this to any of your own Model Ms? I'd be really interested to give such a board a spin.

Re: Model M122 and Soarer's Converter issues

I have one of these boards as well, but it's manufactured for Affirmative. The key legends are a bit different on it though, and when I got it, it was sending unique scancodes. Here's what that board looks like: https://i.imgur.com/L7Dxu1z.jpg One point that might be of interest is that Num Lock is...

Re: Unicomp SSKs are coming later this year

Based on the quality of a Unicomp board I used to have, I'm not expecting much even if these do come out this year. Literally every key felt scratchy on the Uni board when I typed on it for a few seconds. It's not even close to a real model M. And I'm not just saying this because of what I plan to ...

How much for shipping to the US? Would it be the same for two boards?
