Re: Need help with new Model F keyboard

Hmm I don't know about the new model F, but on the originals you have to triple check if the grounding wire is properly attached. Try that.
I've never used mac, so can't help you with that!

I've cleaned mine like that and works great! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/IdJsNfDkjLTFkOryswiKT2Hxc1eDr_b7gM5i0ap1eM9v_Mn6_OZR-mnjKSHtO04fzM9zrtD...

Can we call this the "Old Beamspring Photo Thread" or something like that? I really think we need a central place to post old beamspring pictures like this one.
Sure thing!

Honest opinion on beamspring boards?

Dear lucky users of beamsprings I have a few questions for you. What's your honest opinion on that switch? What do you love? what do you hate? What will you change? Do you think that there's gonna be a modern reissue of beamspring boards? just like the model F ones. Have a great day! :mrgreen:
