Re: Telecomet terminal

Wow, that's a great imgur. Very detailed. At the Seattle winter keyboard meetup, a guy there had done some infilling on his metal cases. Same process I believe. Acrylic paint, wipe off the edges.

Re: Telecomet terminal

I love hearing your thoughts SneakyRobb, thank you. I still continue to wonder why a mixture of double shot and the indented and painted. I dream that the colors could somehow match what the underside of the caps show but I don't think I'll retrobrite because I don't believe it'll work for these col...

Re: Telecomet terminal

Just wanted to share again on this one. I had the great fortune of meeting DMA at the Seattle winter keyboard meetup and he was kind enough to fix up my Telecomet with his wonderful CommonSense. I'm very thankful for all he did. It's finished up now and I used it all this week at work. It's a lot of...

Re: Maxi Switch dome with slider conversion

I did my layout at keyboard-layout-editor and loaded it into builder.swillkb.com and submitted an order to lasergist for a $34 mx plate. Hopefully that'll be a good starting point.

Maxi Switch dome with slider conversion

Hi all, I have a maxi switch dome with slider keyboard that I like the case and plate. I want to try to replace the innards with Cherry MX and/or Alps. This will be my first attempt at such a thing. I thought I'd be diving into making a PCB, KiCAD, etc. but I think that's starting backwards. So then...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYSWITCH thread

What is this Compaq switch (or lack thereof, likely rubber dome)? https://i.imgur.com/1obc4en.png https://i.imgur.com/TL8kTZz.png https://i.imgur.com/1dHegRK.png https://i.imgur.com/V4ol501.png Reverse of Cherry MX, and smaller. Kind of looks like a swastika. Strong tactile bump right at the top. Sh...

Re: Grass Valley Group VPE-131

I was attracted to the key caps on the avid keyboards I saw but they weren't doubleshot and felt pretty thin and cheap.

Re: Grass Valley Group VPE-131

I saw 4 avid keyboards at the recycler yesterday. I think they were $25 each. Similar but without the jog dial.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYSWITCH thread

Ahh, didn't know that was a thing that long ago. My only exposure to a membrane was cleaning my Fujitsu Peerless switch keyboard which had a membrane. So I guess these stems are so long they just activate the membrane directly?

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYSWITCH thread

Does anyone have a name for the switches in the DEC LK201? I have an LK201BA but the wiki fails to name the switch type.

I have a Telex 211757-001 Keyboard that I could use any info that anyone has. I've been unable to find a similar switch while browsing around the deskthority wiki so I thought I'd post the pics here, mostly about the switch but if anyone has other info I'll update the wiki or you can if you'd like. ...

Re: Telecomet terminal

At the risk of beating a dead horse, I've taken some pictures of the keycaps since I was about to put them away after they've been drying for a week. Sorry about the horrible lighting. I need to work on figuring that out. Here are all the keycaps. Roughly, all the doubleshot are on the left and all ...

Re: Telecomet terminal

I could see that if they were all that way or at least all one way for a given color. But for all the colors, some are doubleshot and some aren't. Pretty strange if you ask me.

Seattle Mechanical Keyboard Meetup - 2020 January

Had a lot of fun at my first keyboard meetup this past weekend. Hope you enjoy my little view into the event. I searched for meetup in deskthority and I saw XMIT's photo album from bay area in november. Wow, that's an awesome album. Sorry I can't match that! The highlight for me was meeting DMA! f0u...

Re: Telecomet terminal

One other super weird thing was that I once again didn't look carefully enough and some of the font color came off on several keys. Surprisingly, there were doubleshot and non-doubleshot versions of the main alpha gray color and all of the other rich colors. I've never seen such inconsistency betwee...

Re: Telecomet terminal

I think you are totally right SneakyRobb. It feels super light yet strong. snacksthecat said his was cracked. Maybe he can chime in on whether it looks like it had the injected bubbles in the middle part of the plastic. Strangely, I strongly felt like that type of finish wouldn't clean up very well,...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Is there a way to put a imgur gallery post link into here to bring in a sequence of images and their text or do I really need to do it the long way that I just did by copying each image bbcode tag and the text and pasting in the editor?

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

haha, was trying to figure out whether to attach or do imgur. Couldn't find the attach so did imgur but just as I posted I saw the attachment tab at the bottom of the full editor page. I would think either are fine but please let me know if there's a preference.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

I've recently come across some older keyboards and would like to share and ask questions about them. This is my first post so please correct me on etiquette. This post is about one of 3 identical Key Tronic keyboards I received. Key Tronic OEM for Microstar Labs https://i.imgur.com/89R4zSp.jpg plast...
