Re: My Deko Fast Action Keyboard project

So I don't know if I can answer any questions directly, but I can share a bit more about my troubleshooting process and some tidbits I learned through trial and error. I did try a PS/2 to USB converter. I used the monoprice one. It worked with a caveat - it only sent through the standard keys, as we...

Re: My Deko Fast Action Keyboard project

No problem, let me know if you have any questions about it! So I did get a teensy and it's being a faithful converter. https://i.imgur.com/q6z6xDq.png I used the teensy PS2 library as a starting point, but I quickly found it very limiting so I wasn't able to use it in the end. However, looking over ...

Re: My Deko Fast Action Keyboard project

Deko Fast Action v1.0 is complete! I desoldered all the switches and LEDs, and removed the mounting plates. After a bit of time with a wire wheel dremel action, I got them looking pretty good. Unfortunately they got kinda pitted from corrosion, but oh well, you barely see it in the end anyway. At le...

Re: My Deko Fast Action Keyboard project

OK, did some more playing around. I guess I just misunderstood the Hex for the scancodes. AutoHotKey spit them out in a usable format. Here is the updated spreadsheet with AutoHotKey remappable scan codes. https://i.imgur.com/8r3FZVl.png And here's an AutoHotKey template to remap all the special key...

Re: My Deko Fast Action Keyboard project

Good news! I finally worked up the courage to plug the keyboard into my main PC's PS/2 port instead of testing it on my cheapo laptop with the Monoprice PS/2 converter. Again, nothing blew up, so that's always nice. The real good news is that all the keys output unique codes now! The issue was my co...

My Deko Fast Action Keyboard project

Hey all, just wanted to share progress on my first project keyboard, as well as ask for some input at the end if anyone has any insight. I got a Deko Fast Action Keyboard on eBay recently as a project to tinker on. https://i.imgur.com/hx5ml1k.png https://i.imgur.com/qMVAWGJ.png https://i.imgur.com/C...

Re: How feasible is it to acquire an AT&T 56k 460 ACW for daily use?

That's some good info and a fantastic resource, thank you for sharing, Ben! If you are willing to deal with a different layout, the 56K 430 ACZ also uses magsep switches, and it seems a little less rare (on eBay at least), with at least two sold in the past year or so. I managed to pick up one of th...

Re: AT&T Magsep

Hey! I know this topic is a few months old, but do you happen to have any of these left for sale? I'm poking around and interested in getting a magsep board.

How feasible is it to acquire an AT&T 56k 460 ACW for daily use?

Hello all! First post here. I started working from home earlier this year, which opened up a whole new world of keyboard opportunity for me since noise was no longer a concern. I love super tactile, clicky switches. I went from an MX Blue board before all of this, to discovering the world beyond Che...
