Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Dang. Is that Alps or plate spring? Yep! Sure is Lol, I figured it out. So what's the deal with Yahoo auctions? Why is this so cheap? Is the catch that shipping is just super expenseive? I guess it is so cheap because the auction still has 3 days left. And there's also a certain risk when buying st...

Re: Pericom keyboard

Do you have an opinion on the switches themselves? I think I like something with a little more travel. I've got an older ITW in the quarantine queue (that's 75% heavier) that I may end up liking more. The ones on this board also feel a little scratchy. I don't know whether that's because they need ...

Re: My latest acquisitions (Fujitsu Magnetic Reed, Micro Switch SW)

Since there have been two requests regarding the numbers on tactile and latching reed switches, here's a picture (the one with the white cap is latching, the other one is tactile):

Re: My latest acquisitions (Fujitsu Magnetic Reed, Micro Switch SW)

Thanks everyone for the nice comments :) Regarding converting, I think it's definitely possible to get or make an adapter to make the keyboards work with a modern computer. I've been looking into the subject because I'm getting a keyboard that probably has a very non-standard connector and might als...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

I almost fell for it too, but luckily there is no shipping option to the EU :D
I think the problem that led to the wrong perception is that the thing pictured is not the thing sold, which I personally find close to being intentionally misleading.

Re: How common are bleached dyesubs?

Dyesubs smudging and bleaching is a really weird thing, it isn't really exclusive to some keyboards and it isn't on all old keyboards either. I have a Model F XT in almost NOS condition, which has really smudged legends, so it can't be due to UV exposure or use as well.

Re: Stabilizers vs Switches

No, that's just not how stabs work. They are made to be at the same height on both sides all the time, in other words when you press the keycap on the far left the far right is getting depressed at the same time and rate. This is not the case when you just use additional switches, they can depress i...
