Re: What's your list of beige whales?

I don't know that I actually crave any super rare or expensive keyboards. In a sense, the Model M, Model F77, the Cherry G80s and few Alps boards that I have are all I could ask for. At this point, I mostly just like finding and trying new keyboards, not because they are the best , but because they...

Re: First mechanical keyboard questions

Outemu Browns aren't too bad IMO. I haven't experience with that particular board but what I found when I first started with mechanical keyboards is doing the work on them makes all the difference. Lube the switches, grease the wires, dampen the chassis, even add weight to it if there's space intern...

Re: Dust covers, but not the sexy kind...

Indeed. Just for clarity, the acrylic keyboard rooves I've seen are always £20. If I'm going to buy six, seven or eight of them... I'd go down this road if they were £5ish. This made me wonder if there was a material that could be heated to form a plastic cover similar to the Mac101E. I thought ther...

Dust covers, but not the sexy kind...

Not all my keyboards are as perfectly put together as my 2000 Plus. PXL_20210321_205516891.jpg Since my descent into keyboard madness, I seem to able to justify having four or more keyboards out at once; three on my desk and one in my living room ...at a minimum.

Hey Mips! I haven't got an F for you but just wanted to say hi from a fellow U.K. enthusiast 👋 Hi! Good to see, I wonder how many more from the UK are on here?

HHKB Pro 2 Type-S vs. Hybrid Type-S

So, I've been trying to buy a new Pro 2 Type-S for quite a few weeks now and have been let down by a number of vendors in Japan.

What's the switch of the sony beauty? Keycaps and shell shape have similar feeling with JDL, so Topre? :)

Re: New Member, Need some advice

Welcome! I'd say Topre too, being a Topre man myself. However, rather than blowing your beans all at once, a Dell Bigfoot is a good, cheap starting point. Black Alps switches are a nice introduction to tactile switches. Plus, they can be linearised, which is a surprisingly good mod. Aside from parti...

Newest pick-up that I thought would make a nice addition to this forum. This is a ZKB-2, but unfortunately with the ugly Bull badge rather than the lightning Z one. The chassis is awesome though. This one has Yellow Alps.

Re: I Plug In, I Type: Steel Series Apex Pro

I've so few experiences of linears as I thought of myself as part of "tactile gang". My linearised Bigfoot taught me otherwise. I certainly put the Steel Series H.E. switches above them for key feel. Above a few tactile switches too! I would've kept the Apex Pro and done the work on it to get it whe...
