Re: Talking w/ someone selling a Chicony KB5181 and I asked if they could tell me the color of the switches...

Obviously the seller is playing with you....
Most sellers couldn't be bothered with sending the pics because the very question of asking them for colour of switches is absurd to them.

If the seller knows what switches are and their value, they'll label it accordingly in the item description...

Re: Problem with IBM Model F AT - all LED lights light up, no key output

I tried both set of resistors (1k and 10k), the keyboard still doesn't work. If it's of any help, HID listen shows that at least the current scan set is identified (AT extended).

I though I'd just mention - every time you see "Device Disconnected", I am physically disconnecting the device and re-plugging it back. I wanted to show the different output I receive each time I re-plug the keyboard. And yes, its still the Pro Micro running Soarer's, except this time the J1 is brid...

Re: Does anyone know what this switch is?

Rubber dome felling. Yes Microswitch used be a company in Illinois. But from the picture you posted, there's a rubber-dome underneath it over a standard membrane sensing. A keyboard like this should be bought only for the looks and assuming of-course the price is cheap.
