Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

I just bought a Pro 2 Type S, I'm not one to worry about it if a new one comes out right after I take delivery. Even if the new one is better in some way, the current model is still excellent.

Re: IBM Model M with gold square badge?

I am definitely NOT taking the protective film off my Model F's badge. It's been there at least 35 years, if I have my way it'll be there for 35 more...

Re: IBM Model M with gold square badge?

Yeah that is definitely a domed badge. Here are a couple of pics of my badge, which is on a Model F, but which is pretty much the way the standard flat badges look:

Re: IBM Model M with gold square badge?

That doesn't look like it's just the badge with yellowed protective film to me, it looks like a domed badge of a different color. There may be a protective cover on there, but I think that's actually a gold tone badge. I found very few threads about part number 1390136 keyboards, and very few pics....

Re: I'm 99% convinced in buy a topre keyboard, anything I should know before pressing the "buy" button?

I would recommend buying the silenced version when you do decide to buy. In most of the cases I've seen it's not much more, $10 in the case of the FC660C, and the sound is really luscious.

Now all I need to do is get a solenoid driver board so I can use the peizo buzzer that came with the keyboard. I also plan to make a USB hub wit...

Re: What Are Your IBM Model F Preferences? (XT vs AT vs 122...)

I have never had the opportunity to try an F122, so I can't comment on how well I like that model. But I do own both a Model F XT and a Model F AT. I have to say that I love them both, but I prefer the XT by a slight margin. I like the layout on the AT a little better, and the feel and sound of the...

I have never had the opportunity to try an F122, so I can't comment on how well I like that model. And Kishsavers are absolute unobtanium, unless you're talking about the new reissues that everyone is anxiously waiting for. But I'm not sure that comparing the new reissues with the vintage models wou...
