Re: My customized IBM 3278 Beamspring!

Congratulations! That's a very nice specimen. (and with very nice German keycaps, too!) But please think carefully before painting it, because the original paint is in quite good condition and - unless done very professionally - a repainted keyboard can become a very sticky, unpleasant affair.

Decision Data terminal keyboard (IBM 5251 clone?)

Recently I bought a "Decision Data" terminal keyboard for the following reasons: - I like everything, with my favourite XT layout - The keyscaps are very precise copies of the ones from the IBM 5251 - The brownish colour of the keycaps looked very "70s" dd-01.jpg Well, the last reason was "dropped",...

Re: Post the ugliest keyboards you've seen!

I think the key shape is not the main problem. If you hit the keys in the middle, it doesn't really matter, if there are corners or not. But the big problem for touch typists is, that the offset between row 2 and 3 is wrong (0.5u instead of 0.25). So you would have to relearn the number and "qwerty"...

Re: Finally a proper case for the Vortex ViBE

You’re probably referring to the limited kits, that are currently available on drop ("TKL", "65 %", "1800"). My kits are from the two original "drops", that had a lot more options like "Extra Mods", "International", the "Triumph" colour, and so on. (BTW: There is a new drop with the full variety in ...

Re: Finally a proper case for the Vortex ViBE

Shame y and z are on the wrong position =) On the beige one, yes. The too boldly printed legends (from round 1) would stand out too much in these positions. As you can see in the last pictures of the board with the Triumph mods - by now I've found one international kit with decently printed legends...

Just for the record: I don't want to add more and more keys, but instead would actually prefer smaller kits in general. Even, if it would cost the same for fewer keys in the end.

Thanks. It's always an honour if one's pictures are used as banner, of course.
In case of the double picture - maybe the cable on only one of the keyboards is a bit disturbing? Maybe this would be better?

That's true, but the size of the umlauts wouldn't have bothered me, because they are too small on the IBM Model F XT as well. And if IBM does it, it's ok. :D

Ah ...... no, that's just a very, VERY bold circumflex accent. :lol:
What I mean is the umlaut "U", which should be "Ü", but here they printed the lowercase version "ü". :roll:
