og cherry dyesub vs others

I'm trying to understand what are the differences between og cherry dyesub sets, and the modern replica, like the ones from enjoypbt, imsto, bsp and similar. Is there any comparison? https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=74405.0;all https://brianleereviews.wordpress.com/2018/07/26/review-enjoypbt-9009/

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

3d printed? That other guy needed 2 years just to understand what plastic is needed. And now 4 years have passed and yet he doesn't know how to insert the springs.

Well. I'm not sure that guy is ahem, good at planning. Planning.

Re: BOX switches STILL cracking keycaps!

On geekhack there is ample consensus that retooled box switches still crack gmk or OG keycaps.

"all keycaps right away audibly crack on first insertion.
I notified KBDfans about the problem, they said they will take it to Kailh.. (again..)."

ibm model f xt pcb

Hello, are there any projects for a working model f xt pcb? I'm going to use it on xt and bigfoot keyboards. I think that a new pcb plus an xwhatsit controller would be a nice combo.

Thanks for any suggestions.

In the computer bios the supervisor password can usually be erased by removing a coin sized battery, could this apply to keyboards too?

QMK or TMK usb2usb cable/device

I'm asking your kind advice for a usb2usb configuration with the QMK firmware.
I'm open to suggestions, I know that there are some vendors that offer interesting solutions, for example orihaloncon, or I could consider to learn to do it myself.

Thanks in advance.

These switches seem to have heavily inspired the new cherry mx low profile switches. When compared to the smooth versions of cherry switches (the retooled ones), are the smk smooth? Are they wobbly?

Does anyone have an update about their ultrasonic cleaners? Do they still perform well? I'm asking this also because most of the already posted ebay links don't work anymore so I don't actually know what you're talking about :lol:

Just thinking. When you buy a case for a gh60, pok3r et cetera, you just unscrew the plate and you screw it in the new case. With your case, this isn't possible, so you lose all the buyers that don't want to rebuild their keyboard . It's very easy to make your case compatible with all the existing k...

I would have liked it even more if it was opaque. Probably being too shiny is quite distracting.
