Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Milk is gross.

All that hormones such as estrogen where they force female cows to produce an absurd amount of it against their will ... hard pass for me.

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...

Also, I see that your main mouse is the g502, do you mind sharing about it, as I really like the button placement that it has, but was slightly put off by how some people are complaining about it being rather heavy.

Re: IBM 3178 C2 1984

Nice! I haven't seen one with a gold badge. Quite some search led me to the conclusion that there is no golden badge. It is protective foil over a silver badge that changed color over the time. I was fooled by that, too, recently with a model f case i but was able to remove the foil in the end (it ...

Re: IBM 3178 C2 1984

Nice! I haven't seen one with a gold badge. And it looks like the seller wrapped that keyboard quite well! I read that the back part of the board is somewhat fragile where it can break during the shipping process if not wrapped properly. This is true, one of the 3178's I have is totally smashed. Ne...

Re: NIB IBM Model F Unsaver (1386965)

The starting bid is actually about 400 cheaper than what it was purchased for - if I'm right, that is. I think this particular board was purchased off r/mechmarket a little under a year ago for $1950. That.... is insane. :shock: Have a link to the mechmarket thread? I wonder which is rarer nowadays...

That's insane. I'm sure it will sell for at least a grand if not more. Those function keys on the top are nothing short of majestic.
No doubt and I concur. Since it's brand new, it's like buying a piece of history right there.

Re: Proper screw size for Model M Screw Mod

I've just completed my Model M screw mod. I've used M2 x 8mm truss head screws with sharp points, which protruded a little from the top of the barrel frame. I drilled 2 out of 3 of the right most points, at the numpad under where vertical 2u '+' and 'Enter' wire stabilized keys are to be, and the p...

I think I used 6mm when I did a screw-mod on my M122. I left out the washers, they took up too much space.
Will this be the same concept for a Model M (1391401)?

To clarify, the only screw that you need for screw modding an IBM Model M is just a flat head M2 screw that's 8 mm long?
