WTS [UK/EU] Keyboards!

During lockdown, keyboard projects were great; they kept me good and busy. Unfortunately, now that I'm back to the good old fashioned 9-5, I no longer have the time time to do what I wished to do! The following is a list of boards, some cleaned, lubed, ready to go; some broken needing repair; and so...

Re: Stuff you just bought

Realforce R2 RGB turned out to be a pretty good Topre keyboard, what I haven't expected... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51448703340_2ec4cf506e_o.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51446978852_94478edd41_o.jpg And I put on my new DCS Sleeper set. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51448...

Re: Building my first keeb. Final came out to 287$ 😮

I got into the hobby during the first part of the pandemic and I was poor. I started by buying a half decent board and then modifying it, spending as little money as I could. This turned out to be a decent strategy because it helped me find out what I like before I spent any "real money" on boards. ...

Re: Nopre Electro-Capacitive Switches: A Good Topre Alternative? (Niz Plum/Abko)

Good to get another take on these boards/switches. I think I still largely feel the same as I did when I wrote the above. However, I was seeking that key feel, the HHKB feel that I had recently experienced prior to ordering the Nopre boards. I think now, having finally settled on my Type-S, and also...

Re: Recreating the Lisp keyboard (10 years later)

I think making an MX-compatible, dare I say, hot-swap, board opens up a much greater market. However, if you look at all those Instagram-type keyboard enthusiasts that have never even heard of Alps switches - would they be interested in a Symbolics board? They all seem to like 65-75 % form factors. ...

Re: What happens when your "White Whale" disappoints?

Rarely have I felt a switch vary so much because of the construction of the rest of the board, is all I'd say to that, hahah. The main thing I dislike about RealForce does not apply to other Topre boards like HHKB: RealForce uses a rock solid metal plate, but boards like HHKB don't. In my opinion, ...

O.K., so I'm alright at typing, like a normie. I don't fully utilise "correct technique", not that that particularly matters to me, but jumping between keyboards over the past few months has slowed me down a good bit, increased my error rate and has highlighted some bad habits I know I have.

The RGB is basically an R2 with slightly different sliders.

My R2 review: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23130
I had already read your review of the RGB, hence my impression being that they're modified R2s, rather than modified Type Heavens.
