Re: [FS] - IBM Model F AT with USB adapter

Hehe, I don't have that much confidence in myself. I'd try on some messed up piece first before attempting mod on a decent board.

Yours looks pretty sweet Redmaus!

Re: [FS] - IBM Model F AT with USB adapter

I know it can be modded, but I think it's too valuable piece to cut the barrel plate. For me at least.

[FS] - IBM Model F AT with USB adapter

I decided to thin up my collection a bit. Starting with this beast. I restored it few years ago, but never actually used it as it's just not my style. I can't get used to the layout and heavy space bar. Otherwise it feels amazing, smooth, springy, just like perfect condition Model F should. I have a...

[FS] - Czarek's spring sell out: HHKB, Filcos, Duckys, IKBCs, Leopold and Cherry

I figured out I have a bit too many keyboards and I don't use most of them so I decided to sell at least some of them for now. I might add more boards to this list at later point. All keyboards come in original boxes with all original accessories, unless otherwise stated and of course are fully work...

I surely can't be the only one prefering Model M sound to Model F sound, right? Feels wise, F is springier and more gentle, but the sound of early M is a joy to the ears compared to my F122 or F AT. Not to mention stupid, rock heavy space bar on XT and AT Model Fs...

I have the same board - 1391401 made in UK, and as a matter of fact, also from 1988. It's very nice keyboard indeed. Surprisingly hasn't lost any of the rivets yet, even though I got it second hand, and judging by condition of case it had very hard life. Not that it's much better at my home where it...

Being extremely simple and minimalistic construction G80s are ones of the easiest keyboards to fix. Just clean it up, dust it off, and if necessary open some switches (no desoldering required) that cause problems and dust off their insides. It's basically just a simple matrix and dumb PS2 (or option...

Yep, I have 2 of those keyboards, one in early A500 (like yours, white linear Space Invaders), and one dedicated for A2000 (yellow linear Space Invaders), which my RealForce reminds me a lot (looks similar, feels a bit similar, being slightly lower than normal travel due to silencing, and extremely ...

Why stay away from variables? That way he can try all the weights available in Topre keyboards :) Also typing on that is quite unique. You don't really feel the variable weighting unless you really look for it. Otherwise it's just easy on fingers, making the keyboard feel a bit lighter overall. I th...

Be warned. My experience is a bit hardcore as I'm coding for ~10 hours a day, but 55G Topre made permanent damage in my right hand ring and little fingers after using it for nearly a year. I can feel them hurt when I use heavier switches now, and honestly, 55G Topre feels the worst - hurts more than...

I actually quite like buckling rubber version of this switch. Linears (same switch but with spring instead of rubber) are really awful though.

But yeah my CDTV keyboard was brand new when I got it. There is a video of me typing on it few years ago:

Plenty. The controller is about the same size as the regular or Space Saver Model M so there is plenty of room inside.

Like anything else. Out of Alps based keyboards I only tried V60 with Matias Quiet switches and they felt more solid, with more pronounced tactility without any reverbs in sound, making it sound a bit harsher than normally. Eventually I went back to plastic case as I actually prefer the sound and fe...

I think everyone is different but it's not true that the lighter the better. Tactility also plays a huge role. For me the most ergonomic switches are standard MX Browns with faint (but enough not to bottom out) tactility and 45g actuation. MX Blues have slightly sharper tactility which is more fun, ...
