In the video i recommended the guy uses a pointy file to make pilot holes and it looked like it worked so i am going to give it a shot. Having d...

Re: help me to get an unknown vintage alps keyboard to work!

Okay, that's not a ps/2 keyboard. See that SGI copyright? That means its an SGI protocol, which means… You're screwed unless you can find the documentation on the protocol and program your own converter. Too Bad its a really nice board wish i had saw it in time to buy it altought its not qwerty but...

Re: Some bolt modding questions

One other thing I just though of. If you are doing many of these bolt mods I think ideally you would want some kind of jig to keep the barrel plate perfectly flat and well supported. Then you would need some sort of drill press to ensure no holes are drilled at an angle. I'm not sure about starting...
