Re: How feasible is it to acquire an AT&T 56k 460 ACW for daily use?

I'm in the same boat. I have 2 of the switch testers and I've been looking for one of these boards for a while.

One switch tester doesn't have the foam in it and is much clickier and louder and I like it a lot more. I'm wondering what other people prefer or if they have tried it like that.

Re: Beamspring space bar broken

That board looks great! But have you mounted all the switches rotated by 180° (stems angled towards the front instead of the back) on purpose? That results in the weirdest keycap profile, I've seen so far. Those pictures are of when it arrived. I am giving it a thorough cleaning and replacing the f...

Re: Where do you guys store your keyboards?

It is a pity to keep them closed in their postal boxes. I think you have enough room in that corner to set a Ikea BESTA up as I made with mines. What do you think of my Ikea low cost solution? Consider anyway that I slightly modded it adding some extra shelves, some of them were also further modded...

2 IKEA KALLAX shelves with a bunch of cheap metal file sorters and even that isn't enough :lol:. I've added about 15 more boards to my collection since this pic was taken. Plus those are just my vintage boards.

Could really use some organization.

Re: [IC] NOS Alps SKCM White, Futaba MA41

I'm very interested in the Alps SKCM Whites. I would also buy around 200-300 depending on price. About the Futaba MA switches, are they more clicky on the upstroke? I have a couple boards with them and the clickiness on the downstroke is kinda disappointing but the upstroke is much louder. I hear th...

Re: Recommend chassis for Dampened Cream Alps

I should have also mentioned that I prefer full-size keyboards even though the CLS does look nice. Thanks!

And I wouldn't mind desoldering a vintage board with crappy switches.

Recommend chassis for Dampened Cream Alps

So I recently purchased some Dampend Cream Alps switches. I plan on cleaning, click modding and lubing them. I am on the lookout for a chassis that they can call home that will bring out the sound the best. What do you recommend? Edit: should have mentioned originally that they are Dampend Cream Alps.
