Re: Have you tried a Futaba MA keyboard? Great!

Great looking boards there. I'm a fan of the switch too - I have an EAT-1010 (NOS) and an AK1012, plus a couple of Sejin SKM-1030 keyboards.

Have you noticed any inconsistency in clickyness in the switches on any of the boards?

Re: Sejin EAT-1010 Improvement

Nice work! I'm also a fan of the futaba clicky switch. There was a discussion a while back about the tactility of these switches. I've found on all boards that the switches are inconsistent in terms of sound / tactility, and that they seem to lose their 'click'. I discovered a method to increase / r...

Is the OP up to date? I'd like some Alps keys in other languages, but it would be somewhat costly to get shipped here I'd think. I've updated the quantities. I may have a few more Belgian beige ones as some of the boxes were mislabelled. I may be willing to send keycaps only, though I'm not sure wh...

Great board, I love the stabilised control keys as they are prone to binding on many Alps boards.

Roughly $20 for one keyboard, and $30 for two - the cheapest shipping option. This took about two and a half weeks the last time I shipped one to California.

The M2 is like the AK47 of Model M boards. You can take the whole thing apart very easily, and it's not difficult to reassemble once you've done it the first time. You get the best parts of the M (same hammers / springs, PBT caps - in a lower profile), with a compact footprint and full size layout. ...

SGI AT101 is also a good board for transplants.
