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

Alps - sorry that would require another mold.

gliucf sorry the only available options and key sizes are on the "extra keys" page, though for the final round this may change.

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

The screw + paper method seems like the best method so far to remove stabilizer inserts! Dye sublimation update: We finally have some approvable key sets! See the below example - please note some keys have been slightly cut off in the photo. And the photo was taken with a camera, not a scanner, so t...

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

sundude the compact case keyboards are USB-C. Feel free to add an order note for me to double check.

OxC0FFEE as confirmed by DrivenKeys the 5 num pad key has the nub. But yes the 1U nub key will fit in the 1U key on the jig so any 1U key can be a 1U key with nub.

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

Any recommendations on removing stuck new Model F stabilizer inserts, outside of opening up the keyboard to push it out? These are more solidly secured in the barrels and tougher to remove than original inserts. Maybe hand / non-electric drilling and pulling out the drill+insert might work but it is...

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

Jan, you do not need to disassemble the inner assembly to get to the space bar. That was only the case with the XT type Model F keyboards. The new Model F keyboards use Model M type space bars which can be removed more easily. Yes the cables can be swapped. You'll probably want to wait until your ke...
