Re: [USA] [W] Looking for Cherry logo LED window keycap

Perhaps I would think of selling mine, but it would require a very tempting offer. After all, it stems from my first Cherry keyboard :mrgreen: It belonged to the first generation Cherry G80-2100 which was my daily driver decades ago, at a time where desktop computers were rather valuable items.

Re: [WTB] profiled relegendable keycaps

So, is there such a thing as (MX mount) relegendable caps which aren’t flat? Those Tipro ones are too anticlimactic… There are other Tipro relegendables with a (hardly perceptible) cylindrical profile, see the left one: Relegendables.jpg I also have a few caps of unknown origin which are quite iden...

Re: [WTB] profiled windowed keycaps

I take it that by windowed keycaps, you rather mean relegendable keycaps. https://cdn10.bigcommerce.com/s-ktpi93fl/products/136/images/552/DSAreleg__67471.1438123926.500.659.jpg?c=2 In that case, you can have a look there: https://pimpmykeyboard.com/dsa-relegendables-pack-of-10/ although most colour...

Just because you can’t cope with a 1u Backspace or a short right Shift doesn’t make it inherently bad,
rather blame your own incapacity :lol:

Re: MX blacks: random impressions

The above discussion about the difficulties of accessing certain characters
sounds rather amusing when you could have a Tipro board,
which basically is a 75% with 2 additional rows above the F row,
adding 32 (!) fully free programmable (!) keys.

I’m guessing these are really for manipulating audio, so you can translate / transcribe spoken content?

Tipro 16*8 matrix KMX keyboard with USB

Looking for a Tipro 16*8 matrix keyboard, KMX range, to become my next foot switch.
Must be USB, white/grey preferred but black OK.
And shouldn’t be on the expensive side.

Re: Vintage Cherry Din5 to USB, how?

I had no problem connecting DIN Cherry keyboards to USB by just chaining two cheap, passive adapters:
DIN to PS/2 and PS/2 to USB.
Perhaps as a first step you should just give it a try :D
