Re: How to build a custom keyboard - new edition

This guide is awesome! Thank you so much for writing it.

I'm trying to convert a vintage board and it has a caps lock light, is there anyway to get that working?

Oh, not so interesting after all.

I found all these micro switch keypads (rubber dome MS) that I had harvested sensors from last year.
These sound interesting, any details about them?

Re: Xerox Custom Build Plans

Are you going to have a rectangular trackpad or make it circular somehow?

Either way fantastic project that I look forward to seeing happen!

Re: Sun Damaged Keycap Restoration

I'm thinking of using acetone vapor smoothing, like with ABS 3D prints, to smooth the keycaps.
Does anyone see anything horribly wrong with this idea?

Re: Sun Damaged Keycap Restoration

They are doubleshot, and the legend is raised by some tiny amount.

I think that first picture overstates the damage a bit, too. Most of the damage is cosmetic and the caps are maybe just more fragile than normal caps. Totally usable as is.

Sun Damaged Keycap Restoration

I recently got a keyboard that had been left in the elements for roughly a few decades. Luckily it comes from Arizona so there is no water damage, but the sun damage is extreme. The keycaps took the brunt of the damage, but the on the one switch that was exposed, the slider disintegrated. Compared t...

Re: Univac Keyboard (Micro Switch) - Now USB converted via custom TMK scan module!

Is there a different model number on the different types of sensing pcbs?

I have a Micro Switch SD keyboard that is completely homogeneous in switch type and sensor pcb, which is confusing to me because I was under the impression that the modifiers and F keys would be 'hold' switches.

I bought one of the Pawn keyboards, and they are amazing! The caps are fantastic and the switches are wonderful linears. Mine is not amazingly Hitachi branded but I still love it and want another one.

I highly recommend these keyboards.
