Re: G80-1000HAY

Once you have cleaned a few keyboards, you are actually immune to a lot of diseases,
but the vaccine overdose contained in this one could certainly have killed you instead :mrgreen:

Vintage Cherry G80-1134 HAX with dual keycaps

My newest grab, an apparently undocumented G80-1134 HAX built in 1988. "Apparently undocumented" because even if Wodan found a keyboard with that exact article no. in one of his legendary recycling center raids, this one features quite special, dual keycaps. And it has its original cord, is fully fu...

Hey guys, before this discussion goes into the wrong direction. Of course, I have contacted Wodan before doing something like this and he has approved it. This is not trying to be a copy of Hadapter so some keys will be different. It is more the attempt to bridge the gap between a modern keycap set...

Re: Can I stabilize a key using two Cherry switches?

Another option (at least if your switches are PCB-mounted) would be to open one of the switches every time you change your layout, and remove/reinsert its spring. It is more than just swapping caps, of course, but has the advantage of the perfect feel with either layout as - when using two caps you ...

Re: [WTB] Cherry logo LED keycap, GMK 9009 add-on kit

If by "doubleshot" you mean the logo itself and not the transparent window,
on original Cherry keycaps the logo is always pad painted with high quality coating.
