I have two F107s but seeing as I’m in Asia and you’re in the Netherlands, shipping might be prohibitively expensive.

Re: [EU] Model F's: 4704 F-107, F-AT (Also F-XT body + cable)

I don't mind he modded it with another color, keyboard-layout, keycaps .. You can always reverse the mods and do you own mods. I have a Model F-AT, but decided to keep the old layout out of laziness. An unrestored F107 sells for 400 dollar , so 400 pound is actually not a bad deal.. Oh, to each the...

Re: [EU] Model F's: 4704 F-107, F-AT (Also F-XT body + cable)

Yeah I saw it come and go with the opportunity to snag it. Not worth it IMHO. Painted it black, all original keys gone for a horrific set of unicomp keycaps / tacky DT esc key, no beeper, no footstand (although not 100% sure if these come with it), backplate not heat treated so likely a replacement ...

Re: Office-grade Cap. Buckling Spring (Quiet!)

Hmmz, good suggestion. But I'm not sure if I'd like dental floss all up in my keyboard :D

Also dampening the sound is one thing but getting it down to acceptable office levels is another.

Guess I'm more looking into an alternative switch with decent quality and similar feel minus the noise :idea:

Office-grade Cap. Buckling Spring (Quiet!)

Hiya, I'm loving capacitive buckling springs switches - but would need some that are allowed in an office; so quiet(ish). Doing a quick online check; I see zilents, topre, ... Anything out there that would last and fit the bill? Keep in mind; my thoughts of contemporary switches is (bought a Leopold...

not sure if I would like full plastic on the AT.
The AT still has the 2 internal of the 3 steel plates and probably weighs about the same as an XT.
Oh don't get me wrong, if I find one I'll get it - EU is a pain in the ass though. g'damn backwater :D

Re: [US] 122-key Model F

I know these are hard to come by and are super inflated on ebay, but I'm really hoping to fetch a good condition 122-key Model F for under $350? Idk if that's super unreasonable or not. You're in luck, she's selling some for $299 including shipping. From the outside, they look pristine. https://www...

Hi all,

Looking to get as it says in the title; some Model F's. Preferably EU (would go to Netherlands) given the size of these things.

Cheers,
