Re: Alps Appreciation

I was bored so here we go, please see attached Omni03.JPG The gaps where I marked with color pens are spaced evenly if they are of the same colors. I took some liberty and decided that the slash should be evenly spaced as well. Capture.JPG The corners are sharped and I'm not sure if they should be r...

Re: Xerox DocuTKL: An Alps TKL

I'm doing the keyboard pcb guide in kicad and ran into an issue. Wondering if anyone out there might be able to help me. I noticed once I put all the components on the pcb that I mixed up Gnd/Vcc in my schematic. I fixed the error in the schematic but I'm not sure how to make the change propagate o...

That adds like 10 cool points. Is it AT protocol? I haven't gotten mine to work yet.
Yea it's AT, you will be disappointed when you convert the thing, very lazy engineering. Also the pcb has to curve hence it's so thin.

That is a very healthy cable, mine was too short so I had to splice it to add some length.

exceptionally good job. When I saw your post on GH I immediately bookmarked it. I'm been intrested in using a halfplate for one of my builds.

Force Curve In order to make sure I am not crazy I compared the internals of all 3 switches: SKCL green, Box Black, and Vintage Black. Side by side, you could see the evolution of springs' diameters. Initially I thought this might be the reason for boring linear in SKCL switches in general. https:/...

Cool idea, I suggest keeping the bracket keys cluster together. On the home row, swap the positions of ] and ' keys. Just like the ibm multi station.

Not at all, they are the lighter version of Alps Plate Springs, almost linear with the tiny click sound.

Datavue Spark Laptop

Hey guys, so I bought a Datavue Spark hoping that I would get some rare skcm alps. It happens to have cyan omrom.

The spacebar is abs while the rest are thick pbt with interesting colorway: white mods, milky alphas, and gray f-row

Some of them had the good PBT caps, too.
Good luck finding those keyboards especially ones with all PBT key-caps for under $400USD if they are trashed but for NIB condition, do expect closer to $700+.

Leeku's default keymap layout is weird, you need to download Jigon and remap your keys to the desire layout. That's all. 2 out of 3 leeku pcb's I got so far have the spacebar mapped to fn before.
