Re: [WTS] Custom-built 60% ISO-DE (Wood Case | BOX Jade (lubed) | Filco Double-Shot ABS)

I would buy it immediately ... but, first, I rather prefer white SA caps, and second, I think for a 60% it is too expensive all together. I know, it was a lot of work, but as you sad, you did it for your own testing and now you want to sell it. For the half I would buy it today and exchange the key...

Re: G80-1800, ISO-DE, w. coloured keycaps, also some PCBs w. MX-Blacks for harvesting

I also bought these keyboards for less than 5€ in the past (Cumb.de store), so @Geroximo is right. However it's true these boards normally arrive in awful condition (super filthy or even damaged) so there's an extra work that needs to be done... does this work justifies the asked price? probably no...

You could buy these keyboards for 3,50€ and you want 40€ for them? lmao.

Also just for information: The caps on these are lasered thin pbt caps, nothing compared to Cherrys thick pbt caps.

Then who should I buy from? The only modern switch as good as BOX Navy as far as I know of are buckling springs.
These switches literally break your keycaps ... anything is better than this.

I can confirm the problem. Cracked stems on my GMK HADapter set which was mounted on Kailh BOX blacks. This is horrendous. I don't even want to know how much damage has been done by this. All the expensive custom boards and expensive GMK sets rendered useless. This is absolutly insane. Kailh needs t...

Got mine as well. They are beautiful. I'm so happy the ISO DE set made it :)
The Alphas are not the same color as in the renders, they are more brownish, but that's fine, it looks really classy.

I just tried it with a dental pick and failed. Drilling it out with a dremel is the only solution left I guess. The keycap is an OG Cherry PBT dyesub "Ä" in excellent condition. I'd rather save the cap, since it's in such good condition and a replacement cap probably wouldn't have the exact matching...

Can someone fix this keycap?

Hello everyone, I broke off the stem on a Cherry MY switch when removing the keycap, now parts of the stem are still stuck in the keycap. I can't get them out. I already tried it with a needle, but I just can't make it work. Maybe a small drill, like a Dremel could fix it, but I don't own one. Is so...

I'd love to try Buckling springs, but I cannot convince myself to spend 80€+ on a Model M, because I'm almost certain that I cannot use a keyboard of th...

Why are there no groupbuys for relegendable keycap sets?
Like a full set of relegendables.
You'd be able to go complete custom layout and make full use of fully programmable keyboards.

The M K 104 now only works, when you put it in XT mode, boot and then turn the switch to AT. If you boot it in AT the keyboard doesn't work. Well ... at least it works now when flippng the switch.

Hey guys,

The leds on the FK-2002 are dead but at least I can type on it now.

Not recognized at all.
I picked up Cherry boards that looked like they were used as ashtrays - all of them still worked fine.

I am using a 5pol-to-PS/2 adapter and am aware of the fact that PS/2 cannot be hot-plugged.

How can I recognize dried out electrolytic capacitors?

It's driving German keyboard enthusiasts crazy, that we have to pay international shipping twice + additional taxes for a product, which is actually made in our own country.

This is very true.
I absolutly love thick Cherry profiled caps on linear switches.
On MX Blues however, I prefer light ABS caps in OEM profile because they give a much more satisfying feel and clicking noise.
It really depends.
