Re: Chicony 5192 with Cherry MX Pale Blue

This thread has been too harsh. I think the starting price is a bit too high, but I understand why he's setting the price where he is to start, I would have started at around 100 and see if anyone would be interested there, going down over time. It's hard to price stuff like this, unfortunately it's...

Re: Honest opinion on beamspring boards?

I love the switches. When cleaned and restored man they are an experience. Super smooth, light, and crisp. Feels crisper than buckling springs which can have some more reverb. Feels linear until it doesnt, with a very clear tactility where the flyplate flips up. It drops. The bottom out almost feels...

A glory shot of everything to come! Hardware, software, keyboards... A lot of these have restoration to be done so I haven't made individual listings yet. There may be more to come!

And what's this I spy in the corner?

Re: Fixing Omnikey Ultra

Did you just take apart the switch tops or did you desolder them? Beside suspected coffee in this instance, old keyboards often have *lots* of rosin flux on the bottom, I've seen this on both AEK IIs and AT101s, wouldn't be surprised old Focus boards have the same. Is this a single layer and single...
