Re: IBM Model F - Sensing PCB Thickness?

I also thought about putting a pad under the empty barrel to the left of the space bar, but alas.

Re: IBM Model F - Sensing PCB Thickness?

Thank you! Unfortunately, the 122-key board uses all 128 key matrix positions available on the xwhatsit controller (127 keys + one calibration pad, which may not be needed but I've never worked with a Model F before *shrug*). It could be done by removing pads under stabilizers for multi-wide keys, b...

Re: IBM Model F - Sensing PCB Thickness?

Thought I'd share some progress pics. Everything's routed, checked dimensions, and it just needs more polish (and maybe a little more design rules checking?) before I attempt to send out the order ^^ I also added some screen print art because a board this big felt like an empty canvas. I think it go...

Re: IBM Model F - Sensing PCB Thickness?

Thanks all for the advice and encouragement. I am still laying out the board but I hope to share the files here once it's a working prototype ^^;

Will report back once I find a PCB manufacturer that will accept it or after some rounds of revisions!

Re: IBM Model F - Sensing PCB Thickness?

Thank you! I was thinking either 0.8mm or 0.6mm would be what I would want.

IBM Model F - Sensing PCB Thickness?

Hello everyone! I am new here and to mechanical keyboards as a hobby, but I have an electronics background. I recently got my hands on a 122-key Model M that I am performing various mods on (I'll post the near-finished build relatively soon hopefully~). One of which is an M to F conversion. I do not...
