Re: First Build Thread Custom Alps TKL

Very nice project, looking forward to seeing how it turns out. Amber alps are still on my "to try" list so this one is of particular interest to me :).

Custom boards don't have to break the bank, my favourite came from a £20 Focus board and a £15 junker M0118 I nabbed on ebay.

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

Regarding an ISO HHKB... I couldn't get on with the HHKB for a few reasons, mostly around the blank corners and the left shift and missing ISO key so my concession which I've been using for a few years now and really like is the one below. All the fun of the right side of the HHKB with the added fun...

Re: Cherry 1800 - Telco TA103

Very cool find. I wonder if the blockers are like those on the G80-5000 where they are plastic-riveted in place on the back of the PCB? Also, re the DB9 converter, if this keyboard was designed for a specific application a conversion may be a bit tricky. The good news is I'm fairly certain there are...

I have a NeXT non-ADB in US ANSI layout. I like the form factor and overall appearance. The Hasu converter works well, and I was able to remap the board to a HHKB-ish layout. Minor quibbles: the case is a fingerprint magnet, and I prefer clicky Alps switches. Was saying to Mu earlier, if I do get i...

@HzFaq: Does your Apple mini have damped cream Alps? Like the silent mx reds, they are damped on both the down stroke and return stroke, but unlike silent mx reds, they are tactile, whereas the silent reds are linear. That particular board has standard dampened creams but I have tried modded dampen...

Right, mopping done. I won't comment on the wobblecam as I had you audio only, the bit I did see... I know you mentioned both, but I would recommend a replacement controller as well as a detachable cable mod if you plan on spending any time with the Filco. Detachable cable mods used to be pretty pre...

Just a quick one from me, be a little careful when making your plate as the Alps64 PCB has 3 different ISO enter positions. Probably would be better to source caps before getting the plate sorted so you know which enter position to plan for.
