Re: (Model MF) Remodeling the Model M (aka.. the Mara)

Hello guys ... (yes, I am back ... not in full as I am really busy, but I have logged in again). The real stopper for the FSSK and FEXT are the flippers. I need to test if they can be 3d printed. This would allow to fully transform a model M into an F at a reasonable cost. BTW: I keep typing with my...

My experience in prototyping is that indeed, people in general may not be interested, but some would support it. I will for sure. Project MF was to be a proof that CS actually works. With...

It is nice to read your post guys. Thanks a lot.

I have received a number of PMs asking for FSSK. Unfortunately I do not have many, but if there is interest we could organise a new GB. FSSK and FEXT mixed.

Shout if you want me to do it.

Do not blame hKing. It was my proposal. Blame me. I have no problem. It is just a keyboard. Another one.
And it is not even a FEXT ;-)
