Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Did anybody else have their keyboard function without any problem on QMK for months and suddenly it starts to put out the wrong letters or double letters (i.e. wrong codes). Happened out of the blue. No changes in the setup. Any ideas how to best troubleshoot this?

@pandrew, would it be possible to have access to the QMK beta ?
Try writing Pandrew a DM. He's not always checking the thread (also, QMK truly rocks on the brand new Model F keyboards)

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

@warty I think that's a great idea! Pandrew is already working on something like that. Perhaps get in touch with him so he can give you access to the work in progress and you can make comments / expand the doc?

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Regarding the cursor placement, I have also remapped the bottom right modifier group to act as cursor cluster when the keys are pressed on their own, and as standard modifiers (shift, super, alt, control) when pressed together with other keys. I'm not sure if the stock remapping tool can do this, b...

I am having some trouble with the Unicomp keys I'm using.

I had the same problem with the F62. Unicomp Enter a...

I will try to find some time over the weekend to do that. By the way, the powder-coating finishes of the F62 and the F77 are very different (and so are the USB cables). Was this on purpose or are the keyboards I got just two different iterations?

So far, I only had time to use the F62. It has a few buzzing keys (will have to tweak the springs a bit). I pu...

And yes, they were available contemporaneously. Well, not really available, but they were contemporaneous. I imagine IBM wouldn't sell you a 4704 if you weren't a bank.

Interesting size observation, and cool pic of the siblings!

Were the F77 and FAT contemporary?
Edit: completely misunderstood your question. So the links were not relevant.

That's a good idea but I'm not quite sure how they stay in place. Also would be quite expensive to do something like a Model F AT. Yes, that's the reason I made every effort NOT to damage them.

It is all vastly easier when you remove the plastic clips and clean them separately, but it is inevitable that you will damage 5%-10% of them, so it is a risk if you don't have spares. I completely agree. Because this is my first restoration and I lack spare clips, I wanted to play it safe. It's th...
