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

it arrived in Germany yesterday (and is now stuck in Customs Clearance) 😃 I was lucky to have read up on this - when I got mine, right before paying the import tax, the clerk asked if I am going to connect it to my PC. "Of course I don't! It's for display!" "Ausstellungsstück". That way, they don't...

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

Any opinions on my 1.5U 'Caps Lock' legend in the HHKB ISO German set? I wanted to make the bottom row consistent and do a text legend and Google translate claims that 'Caps Lock' is proper German. The German term for Caps Lock (literally maybe "Kap[itälchen]-Schloss") would indeed be "Feststelltas...

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

I looked at the German keyset and on my MacBook and my Model M and everything seems to be alright 🙂

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

I ordered mine (Black Classic F77, Black unprinted keys) about a month ago with custom birthdate; tracking started this week on Monday and it arrived in Germany yesterday (and is now stuck in Customs Clearance) 😃 If it's in my hands next week, then sending the keyboard from America to Germany was fa...

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

A cool idea, darkcruix! Are this already ellipse's keys? Because the print looks very sharp! I have ordered a black classic case with blank black keycaps as well. Hopefully the shipping handlers will be more gentle to the package. Thanks for these tips, Wazrach! I watched the typing demonstration of...

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

It took me about a week during the evenings, but I managed to read through all 204 pages of this thread. Wow! The journey through the history of this project was amazing and gave me interesting insight in the production process. It put everything into perspective a lot more! So thanks Ellipse, Zed, ...

So, rolled up paper towel instead of floss? Küchenrollenröllchen in die Federn?
Yes, I cut out a very small strip of kitchen towel and folded it, so it would fit into the spring. But it didn't do anything for the ringing. Ich habe bei diesem Experiment Federn gelassen...

Re: New F77 or a Unicomp?

I am a fairly new owner of a F/XT, so my points might only apply to this very specific keyboard and not to the F77. While I think the feel of the keys while typing is actually quite nice, they do have two things, that I would state as possible contra-points: The keys make a really annoying high-pitc...

Re: Looking to try a Model F (or a switch)

I actually today attempted to kitchen towel mod it, because I had no floss with a foam part. Well, kitchen towel does not work at all 😆

But I'll try out the floss mod, once I can get my hands on the required materials.

Re: Looking to try a Model F (or a switch)

To try it out, I bought an old used F and so far I like the typing on the alphanumeric keys; but the layout on this XT is just… not fitting into my training, I guess. And the spacebar is sooooo stiff. Both problems should not exist on the new Model F, so I'm looking forward to my own order arriving ...

Re: Why are you into keyboards?

I really like typing. And typing on a good keyboard is just nicer than typing on a "bad" keyboard. 😃

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

Thanks, Ellipse, for the pointers! I had looked at the other models before already and found them to be extremely beautiful. This made me decide on a black F77 in the first place. Now that I've ordered, I can't wait, to see it.🙂 I'll continue to look at the album, maybe at one point I'll spot mine 🙂...

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

I did 😅, but was thinking about ordering another one, before it's too late, because…?! 😃
Does anyone have the F77 with black case and black keys? I would love to look at it.

On the Homepage it is written: "3/31/21 please have your orders in by then!". What does that mean? What happens if we don't?
