Re: I visited Unicomp a couple days ago, typed on their new Mini M, and asked them some community questions. *long*

Unicomp is good folks. Would love to get my employer to order a couple hundred thousand boards from them. The noise of a few hundred Model Ms clicking away on each floor in each building all over the world would be awesome.

Re: Foam plug mod for Buckling Springs

Probably easier to use something like silicone cord of the proper diameter, cut to length.

Re: Model F Labs, Compact F77 review

If they match the original 4704 boards, then they should be M4-0.7 x 10mm.

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

My F62 has the same mold line, inside and out. Contemplating sandblasting it, filling it, sanding it smooth and re-powder coating; but no rush. Debating replacing the foam as well, to match whats in my F107. Or, I could just leave it as for a few years until a refurb...

They look so nice. Ugh. Can't wait for mine! But, tell us...

Bonus points that the key mapping was already in place, was e...

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

Yup, giving it a try as is. Seems to be fine. I just recall having issues with my F107, and having to ensure the usb shield was grounded.

Here's a pic.

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

The usb cable shield is not grounded to the case on my F62 that just came in. I'd expect ghosting issues like this. The cable is RF choked as well, which I do not need on my F107. I'd suggest a 90 degree usb C connector for the controller, so it's not squished in there. https://i.postimg.cc/qMBHFWHk...

Rather than a slavish reproduction of a beamspring model with all of its height and layout quirks, we need a modern reinvention of that switch in a smaller form factor. All of the fantastic typing feel, and none of the drawbacks. Easy for me to say, since I have no idea how to accomplish it! :D A b...

Easiest to put some heatshrink on the ends of the Model F wire to increase the diameter, so it will work with the Model M spacebars.

Blank, PBT. They have every key except right shift, as a result can only special order. Not an issue if you need HHKB layout though, just add an additional caps lock key.
