Re: Modern Beamspring? - The Silo Beam Switch

Great! Hopefully the design could also be used to revive all of the old HE keyboards collecting dust. If you are talking about the Micro Switch HE switches: this wont help. The MS switches are digital switches, even though HE is a sensing method that is capable of analog sensing. They have some cir...

Re: ALPSaver [SM-FKB401] [SKCC Cream]

Great board you got there :) I believe the extra legends are engraved and infilled. On my board the pi symbol got a little nick and you can definitely see that the white color has some depth underneath it. On the degree symbol you can also see that the level of the white color is lower than the leve...

Re: Symbolics 3600

Is it because their software was based on academic work? That I don't think they are that much of a legendary company? They probably are and I'm just rationalizing the fact that I don't want to afford one of their keyboards :D Funny thing is, I wasn't aware of the mirai/nendo connection. I came to ...

Re: Symbolics 3600

Wings3D is great! As for the "dark" sides of symbolics: Symbolics felt that they no longer had sufficient control over their product. At that point, Symbolics began using their own copy of the software, located on their company servers—while Stallman says that Symbolics did that to prevent its Lisp ...

I'm jesting a bit, of course ;) The fact that I have 6 of these around probably means they are not that bad. When Micro Switch SW is the beamspring of linear switches, SD are maybe the Model M ;) But the more interesting thing to me right now is that the symbolics keyboard sold here *doesn't* have S...

Re: Symbolics 3600

Congrats 🎉 to the winner But I think a Mint-condition Symbolics keyboard can go higher - and given the switches, the caps and the company behind this keyboard design are all now historical legends - definitely will get an even higher price in the future. Fuck what are these switches anyway? I just ...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Xerox Alto keyboard, for me that's a whole grail-level above even the symbolics 364000 and the micro switch 3277. Given the recent prices for those, the 2500$ seem almost reasonable. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Xerox-Microswitch-Keyboard-and-Mouse/183696907783 https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/99cAAOSwdyV...

Re: Not Sure I'm Happy with Cherry MX...

such as Hall effect Don't know mate, mx switches actually bring able to be used on a modern computer is a pretty nice perk :twisted: I agree, but that has nothing to do with the actual switches. It is a moot anyway bc/ most Hall Effect switches are scratchy suckers anyway, in my experience :P

So you have one lisp machine for sale, right? :D

Seriously though, post a picture of what keycaps are missing. I have a bunch of honeywell hall effect keycaps arround, though probably not with the right legends.

How is the broken one damaged?
