Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYSWITCH thread

Was going to suggest starting an page on the wiki for this but I just noticed that you've started one up. I've gotten interested in these Olivetti calculators so I might grab a few more of them.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYSWITCH thread

Got a hold of an Olivetti keypad for one of their calculators from the 1970's or 80's. I think it's for a Logos but the styling is also similar on many Divisumma and Underwood models as well. It's linear with an external coil spring and a shorter throw than Alps SKCM/SKCL or Cherry MX switches about...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

NTC with what looks like white alps for 50$ https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Zeos-No-KB-6451EA-Mechanical-Keyboard-101-Keys-Tested/264709579328 https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/qFcAAOSw0bleod8U/s-l1600.jpg I got a hold of one of those. Most interesting thing about it is what they did with the Left Sh...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Feels like I have seen this Focus 727 with Blue Alps appearing on Ebay many times within few months from the same seller in Ireland. And maybe the seller has just had many of these, but few times I have bid on his/her Blue Alps board, then it gets relisted for much higher price, disappers, gets rel...

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

The last two Wang 725-3370's that were sold on Ebay went for US$125 and US$150. I managed to snag one minus the keycaps for $40 shipped a while back but now I have to source some keycaps.

Re: Where do you guys store your keyboards?

It is a pity to keep them closed in their postal boxes. I think you have enough room in that corner to set a Ikea BESTA up as I made with mines. What do you think of my Ikea low cost solution? Consider anyway that I slightly modded it adding some extra shelves, some of them were also further modded...

Re: Odd Omnikey 101

Yeah, the top case has the same styling as mine as well as having the plastic tabs and AT/XT CapsLock/Ctrl switches in the same spots. Wouldn't be surprised if has an identical PCB.

Odd Omnikey 101

Got a hold of an odd plastic backed Omnikey 101. Definitely one of the cleanest Alps keyboards I've gotten a hold of so far. First time I've seen this model and I'm kinda wondering if anybody knows anything about it. It lacks n-key rollover and has two switches for AT/XT and swapping Caps Lock and C...

Re: Redmaus Megasale

Such good news. Makes me joyful that the boards are getting to users safe and sound. Remember, the painters tape is because some ink spilled on the board, so it wouldn't get on the Dell and make it inky as well. I'm sure you could clean it off with some elbow grease :D Yeah, I'll need to give the s...

Re: Redmaus Megasale

Keyboards made it in. Don't have time right now to clean up the Hi-Tek RT101 but the Old Logo AT101 has the cleanest Alps switches I've ever gotten without cleaning them myself.
