Custom blue alps 60% XD60 blue 5556/iso5140 caps, NIB Pingmaster

Regretfully selling some stuff because I need the money. I built this 60% about a year go after slowly collecting a lot of the rare parts for about a year. It's XD60 V3 based with a semi transparent kbdfans case so the LEDs look awesome with tons of modes. IBM china blue 5556 caps with a combo of IS...

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

Those solenoids look great. I got my original IBM one working with the new driver PCB and it's fantastic!

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

I see a lot of people have gotten solenoid drivers but I ordered one on July 31st but haven't received any update/reply on its status. I'm not aware of any delay for those?

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

Has anyone noticed any "break-in" with their boards? I have been using mine for a few months as a daily and I swear the feel and noise have changed a bit. Feels and sounds a bit more like the originals, that crispiness. Also still looking for a solenoid driver board after I nuked mine back in Februa...

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

Mattr did you install the space bar inside the space bar tabs? Or is it resting on top? Sometimes by mistake the space bar does not "catch" inside one or both of the metal tabs and it is difficult to see after the keys have been installed. The space bar wire should not be in contact with any key. I...

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

Finally got a proper spacebar for my F77, after a month of using a beat up old M bar with a missing wire. https://i.imgur.com/bfcLRqM.jpg But annoyed to discover that the period key makes contact with the stab wire and makes the spacebar vibrate. Luckily it doesn't trigger the spacebar but I wonder ...

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

I have caps on the way to complete my F77, but I am still having trouble sourcing a new solenoid driver PCB. Orihalcon has not gotten back to me in over a week.

I'll buy one off someone if they have an extra :)

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

Does the paint flake away from the surface? Maybe stick some sort of sticker over that area so as to cover it up (my lame suggestion). That is what I'll do so as to not send it back from my address (if I've received that same mess) it would cost a lot more than receiving it. No it doesn't, just see...

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

My order already shipped so it's too late to just throw in a spacebar. I guess I'll use a tab key just to have something for it till I find one. Still on the hunt!

Seems like you're missing a 0 from your Numpad? Take an O keycap, looks almost identical!
I actually don't have a spare, and I'm missing the spacebar too :? Does anyone have an extra?

Cherry G80-2100 TKL

Hey everyone! I've decided to let go of a long time project, my 2100 TKL. This board was damaged by USPS and was almost shredded by them for the insurance money, but I decided to save it.

Re: Is this real? Focus with Amber Alps

Yes, that's my old 3001 - originally came with SKCM Whites. Great switch but the build quality of the board just wasn't there, plus I could never get the calc screen to display correctly. Ambers are best suited in a custom. Focus always made great looking boards though. I eventually sold it on /r/me...

Ah, so it's by order number for the boards that can ship (aka unprinted or no key orders), thanks for the clarification.

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

And I was curious about the very small subset of orders that didn't order any keys at all? Thinking maybe like low serial unprinted then no keys orders than normal unprinted orders or something. The no key orders literally are ready to go as is.

an exception for single digit serials? To allow partial orders to go out if you pay extra shipping?
I think this is a reasonable solution for those with printed low serials.

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

But how does delaying shipping no keys orders make a difference for you? If anything getting those out first would actually make you get your keyboard sooner. You still are one of the first to receive the boards, but Ellipse can't ship yours if your keyset isn't in stock. Maybe you can tell Ellipse...

On top of that, don't no key orders still come with a 1.75U non stepped key for the split right shift option?
