Re: Vintage Cherry G80-1134 HAX with dual keycaps

Wow, never thought I'd see DE with US front legends! Great find.

Surely the front legends are pad printed not doubleshot though?

Re: Cherry MY-3100 SBU (EARLYPRODUCED) HELP!

I purchased all three of Marko's SBUs on the 31st of May. Since then, I haven't heard back from him once. Throughout the whole buying process he tried his best to make me pay with Skrill, which has no chargebacks. I've just learned that he's been trying to sell more SBUs to other people, and has suc...

Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

What do yo think about G81-3100SBU? Is there any at all? Not entirely relevant to this thread, but I figure it does more good than harm posting here.

Re: [IC] A true GH/DT custom keyboard kit - What do you want to see?

Even though I'm not an alps user I would definitely like to make it an option. However, for prototyping I'll be sticking with MX. I imagine I'll have to get a few prototypes made before I'm happy with the finished product, and 10+ prototypes for some smaller components used for a new mounting method.

How exciting. HHKB layout means true HHKB (with 6u spacebar), or MX HHKB (with 7u spacebar)?

I never forgot about this... I just had to go for a while. I didn't show the internals of this, but it was top mount with rubber on the top/bottom of the plate rim. I was always curious to see how rubber/other damping materials would affect typing feel in a custom and I seem to remember me and riot ...

Re: Cherry MY-3100SBU (EARLYPRODUCED) HELP!

Actually, I probably should've looked at your photos more carefully. It's pretty clear what the B means. Look at your card reader. It's shorter than the ones I've posted. As I showed above, it was common for Cherry to use the middle letter to distinguish between card reader types on the G81-3100 ser...

Re: Cherry MY-3100SBU (EARLYPRODUCED) HELP!

Also, I should clarify since I saw your post in another thread about the middle letter corresponding to switch type: that only applies for Cherry G80 keyboards with MX switches. Yours is a G81 with MY switches, which were only offered in one type during each era of manufacture. On G81s that middle l...

Re: Cherry MY-3100SBU (EARLYPRODUCED) HELP!

Makoohr, thanks for the pictures. As I thought, they're standard A-profile ANSI dyesubs. As I explained to you in PM : Yes, the G81-3100S B U has never been seen before, but there is no difference between a G81-3100S B U and a G81-3100SDU or G81-3100SAU that would be of interest to any collector.

Re: Cherry G80-5000HAMUS

The blockers are just pieces of square plastic with plastic pins going through the PCB. They're melted on like rivets at the back. The regular PCB holes/pads are still there, but whether or not they can be populated with switches and used without further modification is another question.
