Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/04/21/3efb9d7bf598d2e76db1c15c2222257a.jpg I've found this in my local listings. Could it be mechanical? Do you recognize it? Looks like a keyboard made by Focus Electronics. I'm not sure about the model, but there's a start for you What makes you say that? Certain...

Re: Sharp PA1000H - typewriter turned keyboard

Been a while since I've updated this thread, mostly because I've been busy with school and all the free time I have, I get rained out so I can't work on it (I work on my back patio lol). Anyway, I finished cutting, sanding, and glueing the pieces together sometime in the last two weeks, and it looks...

Re: Converting z150 - help me with the pinout of a cut cord

Oooh. I think I'm going to need to know where that "Keyboard Reset" pin is, so thanks very much for the diagram! The diagram only applies if you use the modified Soarers firmware with the reset pin moved to an IO pin accessible on a Pro Micro, not just a Teensy. It'll be a different pin on the cont...

Re: Converting z150 - help me with the pinout of a cut cord

Figured I should add a small update for anyone who needs this in the future. I helped OP in DMs on Discord and we figured out the pinout. It is as follows (going of the pin labels on the PCB) 1. Data 2. Clock 3. Reset 4. Ground 5. VCC Reset was easy to figure out since, as I suspected, it goes to th...

Anyone know if the caps are doubleshot? I'll probably grab one if someone can confirm they are.

Re: Converting z150 - help me with the pinout of a cut cord

Pin 5 is VCC, pin 4 is ground, you can guess on the other three until it works.

This is the XT/black badge, right?

Smith Corona Leaf Springs, not that bad!

I recently got a Smith Corona typewriter at a thrift store for $20 and figured I'd take it home, partly for the memes and partly because...well, the switches were hilariously smooth. So I brought it home, removed the keyboard module, cleaned it up, and was quite happy with it. Without the rubber dom...

Hi guys. Been a while since I updated this thread, but I have an opportunity to try again, so I might as well post more stuff here.

Isn't this XT with a reset line?
XT? To convert XT to AT or PS/2, do I need a Soarer's converter?
Yes, I suggest building one with a Pro Micro. Will be about five bucks compared to 30-50 for a prebuilt Soarers.

And I might be wrong about protocol, take what I said with a grain of salt.

That wang looks to be in great shape! $150 for a great chassis and PBT dyesubs is a great price as well. GLWS! It is in great shape heh. I wasn't quite sure what a fair price was. I just hope that for all of these boards (except the Brother) it gets used as a whole board and not gutted or harvested...

Re: 4 x 5 keyboard PCB with controller, intro offer

What controller is that, and why not just run QMK on it? I don't really see the point of this lol. It's a cheap PCB with a basic controller, proprietary firmware and not even a USB connector. 20 euros for something that costs about five to make seems a little steep...
