Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Focus 2001 with a cover. Has Windows keys, so probably Alps clones.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Whoa, I thought the IBM Model M 1397735 was the odd bird that came with no logo? This one looks to have the black Industrial logo!! Is this a rare find? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-IBM-Model-M-mechanic-keyboard-clicky-1397735-07-30-92-F2-5-pin-connector/163722881294?hash=item261ea4e90e:g:vyAAAO...

Dell 101Ws. Different stages of yellowing yields different pricing.

Re: Alps Appreciation

Ah yes, that green one. Nice to see it made it into good hands :) . I know of very few interestingly coloured Alps boards, to be honest. That transparent mac thing barely qualifies, I think xD . Closest I have is that red FLAGK Iori board, and the black Pioneer board with grey, mint-green and purpl...

God damn what a looker. Are the caps doubleshots?
Unfortunately, they're not. Got a textured feel to them and attract grease easily. Can also feel the texture of the print, especially on the right Shift key.

Re: Alps Appreciation

I saw it listed on eBay and shared it here. I shouldn't have, haha, I'm a greedy boy. But, I figured if I shared it here someone would outbid me and help me keep my collection down. Thanks for posting it! I was a bit crushed when I lost the bid war. I figured it was to you or someone else on here, ...

Re: Ah, this unique beauty!

Ebay gods were smiling down upon me. This arrived today. The F9 key is missing and the switch is broken, missing the slider. Thinking I'll just buy a replacement switch and replace the guts. See if that works. My first blue alps board and it feels amazing. Using Soarer's USB converter. Had to move ...

Great looking Northgate Omnikey Plus, White Alps. Buy it now for $109 and free shipping. That's 50 to 60 less than all the other Northgates currently. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Northgate-OMNIKEY-PLUS-Mechanical-Clicky-Keyboard-White-ALPS-4-H4/273863333578?hash=item3fc386d6ca:g:Q00AAOSwBGBc2gK...

Rebranded Northgate, how common was this?

So a lucky Ebay buy and I got this Northgate Omnikey 102. It's white Alps switches, some of the caps are typical doubleshot Northgate keys and the others are just simple Alps style caps that have specific instrument command labels. file2-1.jpeg file3.jpeg The rebrand is Brookhaven Instrument Corpora...

Original HHKB PD-KB02N for newer HHKB Pro

Alright this is for the collectors! I have acquired an original HHKB PD-KB02N. It's in used condition and the keys are yellowed. I cleaned it up a bit and have tested that it is fully functional and it works. From my limited research it has the fujitsu switches, which are pictured. The logos are gon...
