Re: HyperX Alloy Origins

Pictures will follow at some point.

I apologise if the structure of my poor excuse for a review isn't all that, but I'd like to hear what you think if this keyboard interests you.

Re: IBM Model F AT problem

It's difficult to describe. The Model F assembly is extremely sensitive to variations in tension, so chances are every iteration (every foam replacement or slightly different reassembly) will produce a different sound and feel, it seems. I think Ellipse would be able to give you a more definitive an...

Re: How do you make a decent typing video?

You don't need to be a "good" typist to make a good typing video. I think slower typing tests sound better to be honest.

There's something extra attractive about the drab colours and lack of keycap legends. So, so pretty.

Corner aligned, non goofy-Gorton legends, when did Signature Plastics make these? They certainly look like SA, but I thought these came out many years ago, when SP was loathe to make new legend tooling.
I couldn't tell you. :L I really like the font as well, it looks very crisp.

£49 and free UK shipping but you will have to pay for international shipping. They have some shine from use but are in very nice condition overall.

Re: Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

As for the sound, it sounds closest to my model F emr keyboard 2, which has a very stiff spacebar compared to the F122. Maybe there's something related going on. The Models F with the large spacebars WILL sound and feel different to the ones with regular-sized spacebars. I am not sure why your F77 ...

You can remove the spacebar safely and easy like any other key. I suspect the black tape has unraveled or something.

Re: Thickness of foam for Model F XT

Make sure the foam is soft, otherwise you will have an absolute nightmare of a time getting the plates back together. I actually had an easier time getting the F122 back together (multiple times) and successfully with quite firm foam. The XTs however... none of the foam replacements worked with the ...

I'm not a massive fan of that sound. It does sound nice and deep, but it sounds "chalky" when bottoming out. I stole that term from someone else, but it seems to describe what I don't like about the sound. I noticed this with White Alps as well. Aside from the wobble and perhaps more hollow sound, I...

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

Yes I think your theory may be right. Someone should try attaching 4 metal feet to a Model M space bar, and then try with 4 plastic feet. Try with steel and try aluminum. If you ever do this, I'd love to hear about the results. I'd be willing to mod my F77 spacebar, or even pay extra to have it mod...

Wazrach each new Model F keyboard will sound different, and they will also likely sound different when they are as old as the original Model F's. But yes I do hope people experiment with their new Model F's and share their mods to tune the sound of their new Model F keyboards to their preferences, ...

The new space bars will sound like Model M space bars (like in the old demo videos). Maybe someone will come up with a mod to change the sound of the space bar in the future. That's kind of sad to hear, but I appreciate the information. Honestly one of my favourite features of the Model F is the so...

No, sorry, as noted a while back I decided on Model M space bars for the key molds for full compatibility with Model M keyboards. The space bars will not match the old F122 (and other) type space bars. I know it's a different stabiliser system, but how will this affect the sound? Will it have the s...
