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

Great solenoid test video darkspider! Stepped 1.75U keys are not available from me as I don't have the mold for that key, just the non-stepped 1.75U mold. Unicomp offers stepped keys though. I got two 1.75U stepped key from unicomp - one for caps-lock and one for the right shift key. I was lucky be...

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

One thing that has been driving me angry with other keyboards (Unicomp, Matias) was that, after a few weeks of intensive use, key chatter started to occur. My Unicomp sometimes chatters on 'M' key presses and the Matias for the 'J' key. Nothing tooooo bad - but it is aggravating if it happens twice ...

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

I'm bouncing back and forth to work 2-3 days/week, so I needed a method to transport the F77 without risk of damaging it(not like it could be damaged- more like protection for other things around it) Picked up a mostly unused, but old, circa 1982, Samsonite attache for cheap on the 'bay. Turned out...

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

I don't mind the high asking price for the TKL. One one hand it is none of my business. On the other hand: who knows what the current market prices for such pristine NOS boards in their original (mint) box are. There might be collectors out there who don't want to do the research, the trading, the t...

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! ... WHAT THE MUSHY MUSHING PIECE OF SHIT? - ELLIPSE, WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU DONE TO ME??? ... I can fully appreciate that. Both my Unicomp Model M and my Matias are good keyboards. But I can't stand them anymore. The F-77 feels soooo much better to ...

does the spacebar on the f77/f62 remove like the unicomp/model m spacebars? (it's the last button i need to complete my floss mod) if not, is it easily removable? i haven't the slightest clue because my f77 came with the spacebar installed :oops: It is like on the Model M, but be careful with the r...

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

@rgleas: You've summed up quite nicely why the HHKB form factor and layout is so highly praised... The F62 in the HHKB configuration has what I regard as the ideal form factor and layout served up in a heavy-duty package with arguably the best-ever clicky switches. For those who have transitioned f...

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

@BucklingSprings: I share your enthusiasm for the Ellipse Model F reproductions. However, whereas Cherry mx (and clones) are my least favorite type of switches (although in my estimation silent linears are the best among these), I think there are keyboards employing mx-type switches that have excel...

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

I have forced myself back to using my creeky old unicomp for a day. At first it felt incredibly stiff. I have to "hammer" the keys to work. I realize now how tiring it is for me to type on such a stiff keyboard. I am spoiled rotten now. Perhaps typing on a light linear would feel good - but then I h...

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

@Ellipse: (or anyone who might have ideas regarding this): Some of the keys on my F62 -- especially the Enter/Return key -- make a harsh metallic sound when bottoming out. I think I have the same metallic sound with my enter key. I have started to love that sound though. Its like the case is daring...

@Ellipse: can I order additional cork pads? I like to rest my F77 on my lap - I think that the cork pads will wear out quickly. You rest that thing on your LAP?!? I think you will need spare set of feet for your torso when the gangrene sets in from having the blood supply cut off from your legs. :l...

I just have to post a huge kudos to pandrew and tentator .... I had two requests (getting the Solenoid working in QMK and Double-Tap). Both was completed within minutes and I have the perfect keyboard now in front of me. All functions there, Solenoid working - unbelievable. The rest of the QMK was ...

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

Despite the praise that QMK gets I have to say that the standard firmware ellipse ships for the xwhatsit controller worked very well for me. All the small issues I had were fixable with either re-seating of the springs and (once) reducing the voltage threshold. There is one problem though: I am usin...

I wanted to share a recent, thorough blog review of a new Model F F77 Keyboard with great photos: http://ryan.abel.space/blog/model-f-keyboard-review Indeed - very enjoyable. I agree with the author - I cannot think of a better board than an ergo-split (not separated) F-62/77 board. Preferably with...

Funny - amongst the originals, the F-77 was by far the rarest one. And now, because
all the enthusiasts knew that, the replicas will make the F-77 the most
common one and the F-107 (which used to the the rarest) will perhaps become the rarest one.

First impressions: - Sound: a class of its own. Not for everybody. I expected it from what I remember from the F-AT and YouTube clips.

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

At first I thought that I need the floss mod. But now - after two days of using my F77 - I like the spring ping more and more. I particular - I like the REALLY LOUD clack the space bar makes. I don't think I will do the floss mod. Is there a video out there that shows in detail how to remove the spa...

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...
