Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

I have now used my F77 for a month and I love it! I was a little bit worried if I'd get used to it, as it's both taller and louder and the actuation force is higher than the Realforce 87u I was using as my previous daily driver. But after just a few days and a few layout tweaks to suit my habits, i...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Awesome! I do have a question about the stabilisers for the keyboard. Is the larger width part the the white stabiliser supposed to be flush with the barrel or above the barrel? I don't want to accidentally press it down too far or try to. If you do press it down too far, take 2 q-tips. Leave one a...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Sounds good! Nevertheless, I think I'll do without the solenoid. I'm in awe of anyone who can type 110+ wpm with high accuracy! Thanks! I will probably keep the solenoid turned off most of the time, but I think it will serve as a good pick-me-up in late afternoons when I start getting tired with wh...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

So after playing around with the solenoid, I finally found what seems to be the sweet spot (if you're someone who types fast). 10ms extend and 40ms retract have not caused me any issues whatsoever. Everything else I tried from 5-20, 15-30, 10-20, 20-40, 25-50, 10-30, etc... would all cause the keybo...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Nice to hear @Hypersphere!

I just installed my solenoid driver today with a small 5v solenoid. It was interesting try to get everything to fit properly. It works though, hooray!

Can anyone explain how to set up a way to toggle it on and off? Very much appreciated! :P

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

So I've come to a conclusion on my keyboard preference, after switching between full size boards, my F62, and my F77 over the past few months. When I initially placed my order after discovering the New Model F site (of which I believe to have found from one of Chyrosan's video's having a reference t...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

@rgleas: Thanks for the comparative video. Did you use exactly the same setup for the different recordings? (Same placement of mic; same audio settings, etc.). If so (i.e., if the only variable is the keycap set), then the difference in sound seems quite dramatic. To my ear, the new Model F keys ar...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Hello all, I made a new video to provide a comparison between the Unicomp keys and New Model F keys on my F77. I just received my set of blank New Model F keys yesterday and goodness to they feel lovely.

Cheers!

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

20200706_192711[1].jpg Today I got my industrial grey F-77. I also ordered blank keycaps from Unicomp so that I can use it while waiting for the subed caps from Ellipse. I could not possible wait to get dental floss: I just had to put the keycaps on and try it out. First impressions: - function: al...

Re: F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

Hello all. I finally got around to making a quick video demonstrating my F62 and F77 boards, by performing a few type races individually with them. It may be a good comparison between the new model F keycaps (on F62) and Unicomp key caps (on F77), of which I believe the new model F key caps are noti...
