Re: XT to PS/2 Converter for Model F

Will this work with any XT board? I've got a Space Invaders board that could use something like this, if you're still making them.

Re: Retrobrighting Omnikey keycaps (thin doubleshot ABS)

No, it won't damage them. Use a sealed container, so the peroxide doesn't evaporate. Keep away from light, since exposure to light will slowly decompose the hydrogen peroxide into water. Same goes for excessive heat. Keep it in the dark, but you can use a clear container if you want to check in on i...

Re: Retrobrighting Omnikey keycaps (thin doubleshot ABS)

Doubleshot Omnikey caps, right? You should be fine. Don't go crazy with the concentration, I used 3% and it got rid of all the yellowing, so don't feel like you have to get a really high concentration.

Re: Retrobrighting Omnikey keycaps (thin doubleshot ABS)

You don't need to heat them up, or use uv light or sunlight.
All you need is hydrogen peroxide and time.
leaving the caps in peroxide for a week in a dark spot at room temperature is the safest and most effective way to retrobrite.

NMB Keyboard not working

Hello! I recently bought a 2nd-gen NMB AT keyboard, and after plugging it into my AT to PS/2 adapter and my active PS/2 to USB adapter, it doesn't work. Neither of the adapters are the problem, since I tested them with another AT keyboard and a Logitech PS/2 keyboard. The lock lights work, and toggl...

Re: reverse force switch interest

There seems to be a switch that already has this kind of force curve:

Re: Best modern contact-based linear switch.

Novelkeys Creams with UHMWPE stems are probably your best bet. Smoothest materials, great sound.

Re: New Datacomp Alps

I'd love to see a group buy for these, even if they're not complicated. Maybe combining the best parts of these switches and Matias switches could create a pretty good result. (a Matias slider and linear bottom housing combined with the Datacomp top housing and leaves sounds like it could have poten...

Re: Missing keycap on my sgi granite

Looks like it's just yellowed. You can soak it in hydrogen peroxide for a week and it should be back to a normalish color.

Does anyone know if you would be able to use the IPA suspension method with the tungsten disulfide powder, like how it was done with the PTFE powder?

As you can see, no more words!

Since Topre doesn't have an icon, I chose the electronic symbol for a capacitor, since Topre is a capacitive switch. (Also the bottom half looks like a T)

I'm making a new version, with mountains for Alps and the bee for IBM.

Still no symbol for Topre though...

Re: Flag for Keyboards (League of Actuations)

Well there aren't really any symbols that can represent each brand, except for Cherry.
Maybe a mountain for Alps, but I can't think of anything that would work for IBM or Topre.

I figured that if I couldn't find symbols for all of them, just having the logos would be more consistent.

I made a flag for the keyboard community! If this was a flag for a group, I think the League of Actuations would be a pretty good name!
