Re: Input Club Beamspring-like? new board

Um? Search around for prior discussions of this topic here, even former postings by me. I know the creators personally. I know the switch manufacturer personally. This is a real thing. I've just ordered two. This is the most exciting keyboard development of the year. I agree - this is not some stup...

Re: Input Club Beamspring-like? new board

The beamspring switches will come in the future, it says. Seems like a very interesting board! :D Oh yeah, I guess so. I guess I'm still a bit dubious of a kickstarter project where you cant actually see or test or see someone review the product. Speaking of which, I'm sure you get this a lot but b...

Re: Focus FK-2001/2002 Project!

Haha, yes, black keyboards are a pain to shoot xD . Usually requires a lot of messing around with lighting, sensitivity, exposure etc. To get down well.

Beautiful keyboard though! Very interesting project this!

Re: Zenith KBD17/163-73 Rebuild

Absolutely gorgeous. I've been tempted to restore my ZKB-2 at some point using just such an industrial grey colour scheme, and a black XT badge :D . Similarly I'm still tempted to do a repro run of XT Zenith badges. They're just so good-looking :D . I tried to get a badge-making company to make gol...

Re: Rebranded Northgate, how common was this?

Interesting; no, I don't know what SD is, but the serial number is Focus-style, and F.E. also seems to be connected to them. It's difficult to place these exactly in the timeline with certainty, but considering it's kinda midway through changing from Focus-style to Northgate-style, I'd say it's a pr...

Less, actually. $156 versus $217, off the top of my head. I looked it up for a video about to release in a few weeks xD .

Re: What Are Your IBM Model F Preferences? (XT vs AT vs 122...)

Well, I had a look, and yes, the plastic seems more flexible than I remembered it to be. It's also not yellowed in the slightest. The texture is also injection-moulded, not painted. And, as Jordan noted, it's from 1989, well into the era where they made the PVC Model M. Of course, none of this is pr...

Re: What Are Your IBM Model F Preferences? (XT vs AT vs 122...)

Well main reason is because the Model M is made of flexible PVC and when I compare the plastic of my AT they both feel and look exactly the same as the plastic on the Model M and also my AT is definitely not painted to give it its texture. I can take some pictures of the plastic on my At later toni...
