I'm pretty sure they are not, the lettering is most likely engraved and infilled, for the home keys are nubbed not sculputered. But more important, VIGkeys is a company doing that to cherry keyboards, seen G80, 81 and some G84, I linked one in this thread some time ago. keyboardco sells them too btw...

I would have posted about an F row board, but rindorbrot tackled that already. There are a lot of Frow less boards out there, commercial products as well as community ones. Seldom one sees a small footprint board with Frow (TG3, Noppoo Choc, KBC race and keycool 84 are the only ones I can think of) ...

Oh wow ok, that is one of the most fucked up things I saw so far. Then I will have to look for the right G80 or someone who sells a nice set of Iso modifiers that work with the dyesubs. That could take some time. Which will still leave you in need of a capslock, as those aren't common even in after...

Again: G81 (as in the one with MY switches) does have an offcenter bottom row - the stems in the 1.25 mods are not centered so they won't fit any G80 board (or filco, CM, Ducky) without modification. You could do that if you want to go real cheap, at all it's the easiest way to get the center stemme...

It pretty much depends on what your company will make out of it. Ideally a switch tester is as cheap as possible, as there will be people who won't buy your keyboards (or Cherry keyboards at all) when they had the chance to test. However, what would be nice is a) A Numpad that is the size of the one...

Ok guys, thanks for all the suggestions. So I think looking for a cheap G80 with a fitting bottom row could be the cheapest solution for me, as long as the base-colors of the mods are the same. Otherwise I would have to buy a whole PBT set from imsto/GMK/SP, which would be too expensive for me I th...

Nope and nope. Lasered will differ quite some and dyesubs were never made in 1.25, at least I've never seen any. G81 mods in 1.25 will never fit without modification of the stem - as those are offcenter mount. Imo the easiest solution is to go for colourful caps on those. Or buy a remake set, those ...

Apple Design keyboard - made by ALPS, and others

I once bought a box of old keyboards for an Escom branded FK-2002 lying on top of the stack which I was interested in. The other 16 keyboards were supposed to be "just old beige ones".
