Re: The World is going Pro

Sounds slightly similar to the clicky HTK Switches I have in an old board- quite a unique switch as well.

Re: Who knows about this switch?

These are Oak Full Travel Membrane switches, meaning that, like the Model M, they use a membrane sheet underneath the keys, instead of a PCB. I've always been interested in trying these out- how are they, I assume not too great? The wiki has a little write-up on them: https://deskthority.net/wiki/Oa...

I thought so. Thanks
There might be a couple of boards in there worth having. I do see an MCK 500, which should be an Ortek with white alps or clones. I definitely would not say that they are all trash.

Might have screwed up something in the SDL port, since he pulled it out and probably didn't push the 2 clips on the cable inward. Not sure if that's what he did, but I just thought I'd bring it up. Sorry that happened that realllly blows. Best of luck getting it working!

The font, the lock LEDs, and the metal backplate all suggest foam and foil.
Yep! The only way I could tell is the keycap font. I know the early XT space invader boards had a near identical case and backplate, but the font is definitely the giveaway here.

When I first saw it I got linear space invader vibes, but looking closer at it I am 99% positive it is foam and foil, probably linear. I can tell due to the very distinct font.
