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

As a note on the powdercoating, early on in the project I had the choice of going with the modern, thick, protected powdercoating or the older IBM style 1980s powdercoating and I chose the latter because while it is thinner, it is authentic to the look of the originals. I have noted this issue agai...

I don't notice any difference at all in feel or sound.
I think the springs were the same in both models
Um,
more "spires" (if that's the correct word) mean that the spring is more flexible (because for the same deformation each spire needs to deform less, if their number is higher)

Hello, I'm going to purchase a small number of model f xt keyboards, the condition seems good. I wonder if there's any interest, I'm also asking what would it be considered a fair price.

I'm going to buy them only if there's some interest here :-|

Re: GMMK TKL ANSI keyboard

Whoever buys this, the keyboard is really good, I would only replace the stabilizers.
It has been my daily driver for more than a year, at office and at home. It has a removable cable and yes, leds can be turned off.

Re: Cherry MX Black typing comparison (Alcatel, G80-2100, Deko, Nixdorf, Tipro, Wyse)

Tipro sounds really nice, exept maybe for a little bit of ping that can be solved easiy. Alcatel is quite nice too. The worst is probably the cherry one, it sounds empty and irritating.

When dealing with a keyboard, the part that requires the biggest investment is the mould. It probably cost at least 5000 dollars. PCBs and controllers are cheap and require no investment, they barely scale in term of price. Do you agree with that? If that's true, they overcame the biggest difficulty...
