Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Uh... So you are among those who are waiting for the new kishaver? Did you have the chance to try it before placing the order? I am so curious to know how ping is it compared to our old ones.... If we consider that I have two model F AT quite different from each other

IMG_20190612_202508.jpg You are right!. Also mine is half italian & half English. I'd say Italiese, as all of us after all. Maybe at the time of the facts IBM tried to save some money...Mean people if you consider that the introductory price of a 5150 PC started at US$1,565 in early '80s (equivalen...

Re: Model M appreciation

Because I followed Geekhack tut by YakMN and you'd need to file the keyboard case in order to fit 1.5U. Anyway I wasn't scared to do so, but I preferred the 1.25 ones due to the key design I consider more inline with the ALTS modifiers. They give an F122 retro look style to the mod notwithstanding t...

Hi, no problem at all with the B key. G & H were cut with a cutter on the corners and then filed, though. Fortunately I had some spares.

Re: Model M appreciation

In a lazy afternoon in South of Italy, warm is starting to make itself felt.... So instead of going out I preferred to swap key caps.

Re: where to get a usb controller/adapter for a 5251 beamspring?

You can also ask to Steven. He lives in Hong Kong and made for me a fantastic F3178 USB converter with solenoid. The converter doesn't need any soldering and it's connected straight into the keyboard male plug. I bought mine on ebay (https://www.ebay.it/itm/IBM-Model-F-3178-USB-Converter/16365344663...

I agree with Fohat that the F AT case is a bit of a bitch to open. You feel like you're going ...

After being a model M binge collector and user, I have lately discovered model F. My first approach with an F AT has been quite conflicting as the crispness and at same time the gorgeous clicky feeling struggles with an unripe key layout whose worst defect is doubtless the lack of the delete key.

Nice. I might just take a "family pic" of all my Model F and Model M keyboards and macropads, too.
Unfortunately my F family is quite restricted, just an F122, an F AT and an XT. On the other hand, my M's is very extended though, :mrgreen:
