Wang Model 2236 Terminal Keyboard

Got lucky and snatched this beauty of a board on eBay. It came in my mail yesterday, well packaged but quite dirty.

Re: Looking to try a Model F (or a switch)

... Completely agree - in fact, the lack of arrow keys is, in general, not much of a problem, IMO. I'd sometimes wish that "AKL" (Arrowkeyless) had become a thing instead of TKL (Tenkeyless), since having the arrow keys on the numpad is, in my opinion, quite a bit more comfortable. It's nice (ærgøn...

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

Ok, I'm going to be honest: I don't feel that much of a difference. They're maybe a tad bid smoother, but that's it. I'd still advice for it because of the longevity issue with normal WD40. Furthermore, after trying out the board for a longer time I think they're not really for me. Mostly because I ...

Re: Ultrasonic Key Cap Cleaning - 2021 Edition

Haha, this is some professional-level stuff. I use soapy water with dental cleaning pellet and let them dry by just leaving em out in the open :mrgreen:

Good ultrasonic cleaners are quite expensive and not really worth it for me, but the food dehydrator idea looks promising. Might look into that.

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

I already realized a difference just two days after I applied WD40, for the better in this case. My guess is a lot of the excess stuff evaporated, leaving only the oily components behind. That would explain why it smelled noticeably less intense and the key feel was different, more "even" if that ma...

Heya, for sale is my Model M-122, made in 1997. Got it dirty but in otherwise very good condition. Thoroughly cleaned it and it's been sitting in a box in my room since then. Never came around to really used it. Great keyboard, but I still prefer my Model F 8-) The keyfeel is great. Doesn't need a ...

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

Hmm, but the Wiki (and Keybug) mention(ed) white tactile switches, so I was wondering in what way the white tactile ones are superior to the yellows. I just realized btw that my board got a linear version of MMM for the spacebar switch that is not listed on the wiki. Do the colors even mean anything...

Just ordered some WD40 branded silicon lube. Not really a tactile guy tbh, but I really like those Mitsumis and wanna try this out. What's the difference between the yellows and the whites? How does the clicky version feel like?

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

That's an interesting theory. However, my board is plateless and it still has (or now had) severe binding issues. I have not disassembled a switch yet, but I'm willing to try. I hear that SuperLube spray is a good option for spraying switches. Interesting. What product of theirs are you exactly refe...

Re: Lubed Mitsumi MM Review

Ok, my room smells like WD40 now, but you were right, it's a massive improvement. Some of them are still kinda bindy on the very offcenter presses, but the rest of em work great. Makes me wonder what the optimal lube to use on them would be.

Wow, that sounds great! I have a Unitek K151N with yellow MMM, which is dreadful to use due to the binding and so on. I was discouraged to try to improve them due to Chyros' reviews of the switches, but I'm eager to try this out now, since I like the chassis so much. What lube did Keybug use and how...
