Real talk, don't you miss the windows key?

Re: Post your keyboard/keycaps!

One of the original brass Koalas. I've been told they were made in low quantities (I've heard different numbers, between 5-8) as a prototype run before the standard Koala. I'd be super interested in any other information anybody has! Pictured with a Cherry G81-3000SAT keyset mixed with a G81-3100SDU...

Re: Low profile Beamspring project

FreeCAD is quite usable. Considerably slower than commercial alternatives though. By slower I mean that there is still too much manual work which could be done automatically by the program (e.g. it does not guess the right constrains when drawing sketches). Also the OpenCascade (on which FreeCAD is...

Re: Low profile Beamspring project

Can I ask what kind of program are you using? I have some switches to design too. As in any update, your work is going wonderful. I would like to suggest something like an empanada mold to bend the beamsprings once they are cut, if you understand what I mean. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/MgwAAOSw...

I was looking back at my older photos of this board and I thought they were pretty lacklustre, especially considering how special it is - it's truly the King of Cherries in my opinion. So I took some more. As sad as it may sound, this thing is probably my most prized possession. It was originally ow...

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.

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...
