Re: Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

I'm glad to report that all remaining issues have been solved! I compiled and installed xwhatsit's capsense utility. The problem with the repeated keys was not due to the threshold value. I read the manual, and it says that when you set a particular key to be Fn1 on the base layer, you must also set...

Is it possible they mean JIS screwdrivers?
I don't think so. I don't see any markings on the corner that would suggest it's JIS.

Re: Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

Update - the supplier notes that they use Stainless Steel 304 screws I don't believe that. ...and that non-metric screwdrivers will damage the screws. What in the world is a non-metric philips screwdriver? Philips has sizes like 00, 0, 1, 2, 3... 00 and 0 are clearly too small and wiggle too much. ...

Re: Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

The screws on the back are terrible. They are cheap screws made of very soft metal that damage easily, and some have been screwed on so tight that I've damaged them, taking them out. And there is one long screw left that I can't get out no matter how much I tried. My screwdrivers of course have no d...

Re: Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

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 spacebar feels stiff, No, it's my ibm emr keyboard 2, which has the stiff spacebar. The F77 spacebar feels really good and is almost as good as my F122 spacebar, ...

Re: Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

I just got my keyboard in the mail, so I wanted to do a quick review. The feeling is great. It feels better than my F122. 1- Less force is required to press on the key than my F122. 2- There is less key travel before the click than my F122. 3- It feels more snappy. The keys feel better than any mode...

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

The text alignment on some of the keys is clearly off. For example my Q is practically touching the top-left corner. The shift and caps lock keys have their text too high, and not vertically centered. But most of the keys have good enough alignment. And since I rarely look at the keys, I rarely noti...

I recommend ~ and ` if we are front printing Esc. Or more precisely, "Esc" goes on the top of the key.

And there should ...

Did the spectroscopy lab ever get back with the results for the material used in the flipper? I think the last mention regarding this was that the lab lost the flipper. But I didn't see any more news after this.
