Re: IBM Model F Cleaning/Restoration Question

Agreed with above comment, I am restoring my F XT and sanding the goo from the foam (and the paint) and then repainting is the way to go.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

The MCK-142 always looked compelling, but it doesn't come in ANSI. At least the Northgates seem to have a plate design amenable to an ANSI modification. I don't get why with the billion 3x4 macropads out there, nobody's doing a 2x6 explicitly designed to bolt to the left side of a keyboard, or a 2x...

Welcome to Deskthority! German layout is not in the PCB. It is indeed all in software.

Cheap, basic PCB design

Hi guys. Want to offer some basic and cheap PCB design. All I am really doing is a small step above hand wiring; just diodes, switches, and Pro Micro, but for some people that is enough. All I will need is a layout and some stuff like what switches you plan on using and where you want the Pro Micro....

Hi folks, my first post here. Picked up this keyboard. It has no logo or stickers, and I don't know what it is. It has some German keys on it (ß), and a key saying "EXTRA TEKEN" which is Dutch. The connector is of a phone cord type. Anybody knows what this is? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EYtMIydX0A...

If you don't mind, where did you got the PCB and how much it cost?

Re: Maltron single-handed keyboard review (Cherry MX Black)

I love how this board is already fucking horrible and then they go ahead and make it worse with the build quality that makes a Cherry G80-3000 look like it's built like an Omnikey.

Re: F XT foam

You’ll just have to get some scissors to make the weird ones line up. Plus make some small holes under each barrel since XT (/3178/5291) barrels mount slightly differently than 4704/104/122/AT ones.

left-hand Maltron for $12.5 (either the photo is off, or it's some black version with white keycaps that I haven't seen yet)
It is a scam. They used to be at $2.50 each. It is a generic picture, not taken by the seller.
