Any other ideas on values? I'd like to get these listed for sale but I don't know how much to ask.

Thanks

For the R1 Penubra it depends wether its used or not, I would say $280 used $350-400 unused. It should be noted tho there are a handful of crazies out there who may not yet have a R1 Penumbra set who would pay more for it, I am just giving the normal it should sell within the month price. Thanks fo...

I did try hacking the front part out of a switch once to see if it were possible to leave the LED in but just bend it out of the way when popping the top off switches - it did work but looked a complete mess... Needless to say I didn't bother putting that switch on a board!

I was kind of excited about the whole RGB thing as originally I misunderstood it - I thought that somehow there were LEDs in the switches which would possibly mean you could have backlit switches you could still pop the tops off without desoldering them. When I reread the article it's actually just ...

I don't think any invoices have been sent out yet - if certain caps don't make MOQ then they won't be made and therefore you won't need invoicing for them :)

I don't blame you! Paypal can be real arses - unfortunately they know that they've got you over a barrel as, by using their service, you've agreed to their terms and conditions which somewhere must say that they can pretty much do what they want when they want...

Bolt mod: a bit of work, but now you can get in there anytime you need to. Definitely swap the spring for a less used key. I had a few bent ones in my 122 key, including E whose failure was my excuse to delve deep. Any kink in those old springs means you'll want a replacement. One I swapped those o...

I didn't realise they could be too tight (not that I tightened them that much) - I'll give that a whirl thanks :) Edit: I've given that a go but to no avail - I think I'll have to take it apart and have a look at the mylar sheets and / or the spring itself. It could be that some gunk got near the c ...

Rubbish news about the paypal crap tinnie :( Update on my SSK - as I was dismantling it today I realised that the barrel plate had a HUGE crack in it directly under the home row and about 6" long...

Nut driver arrived today so I've begun the disassembly of my SSK - rather unsurprisingly when I opened it up I found 22 broken rivets and another 9 that broke just by me picking at them! Bearing in mind that there are only 49 in total it's no surprise that it's not working! I can't seem to unplug th...

Hey Muirium, it would be great if you could post your bolt-modding guide: I've been looking into it and I found quite some information, but another good guide would be great to have.

My reading of the mystic sage is that those are the ones that shipped on the day. 152's right there on the list, and mine too: 344.

Also I presume yours has one piece caps? Mostly! There are four two-piece caps, randomly around the keyboard, where someone's put on replacements at some point. All the caps are in fine shape besides the 5 key, which is a little rough around the edge. All the SSK specific caps (the integrated numbe...
