Re: [Closed] Europe Unicomp GB - Shipping February!

As far as today I didn't receive anything either, it would be really nice to get an update on the situation.

[H] Unsaver (F104) [W] Kishsaver (F62) or F77

Hey guys, I'm on the fence of trading my Unsaver for a Kishsaver, as the 60% form factor could benefit my current work flow a bit better. I'm not sure yet and want to see first if anyone would be interested in a trade, as I though I would never sell/trade my Unsaver ever, as it's the perfect board f...

Does anyone know what a fair price for a Beamspring 5251 and Beamspring Displaywriter (with rare wrist rest) is? I might want to sell both, although I'm not quite sure.

I'm definitely in for some lower weight springs! I would even say 50g would be fine for me.

It seems like I need a very early Model M then if that's the case. That will be a problem though I think. And you know that M wires are thicker and don't fit in the narrower "mouths" of the F tabs?

Interesting you say you prefer the typing feel of the F. From what I've gathered most people prefer beam springs. I have to say I prefer Model F as well, when the contamination shield is still on the keyboard. But when taking it off, it's a another keyboard, it feels really different, and much bett...

Beamspring Displaywriter (+ wrist wrest)

Well like seebart said, 2016 is the year of beamsprings, especially here in Germany! It's obviously a Displaywriter, but it has another thing on it that I've not seen that often. A wrist wrest! And it's extremely comfortable to type on it. Even better then on the beamfoot. Sadly it's not in the same...

The front part makes it surprisingly easy to type on it, kind of like a wrist wrest. :)
