Re: [WTS] EU-DE 2* Sparkle Loft Reactor Artisan, 2* Weytec Keycaps

Because I wasn't one of the lucky ones who got the electronics to make them work. So I got rid of the parts I couldn't use and kept the ones I could.

[WTS] EU-DE 2* Sparkle Loft Reactor Artisan, 2* Weytec Keycaps

Hi everybody, after a longer hiatus I decided to get a few new 60% boards, try out T1s, Holy Pandas and stuff. When looking through the stuff I still got lying around I noticed that I got WAY too much keyboard-related stuff and some of it has GOT to go. I have NO idea what any of this stuff is worth...

Tex Yoda 2 Kit

Hey, I'm looking to get rid of these two items right now. It's been ages since I actually committed too this hobby, so I'm trying to pawn off what I still got lying around. One is a Tex Yoda 2 Kit, ordered during the Groupbuy period. If I remember correctly I paid about 250€ all in all, so I'll be a...

Have they fixed their shitty inconsistent legends yet? The legends of the last GB by CTRLALT were absolutely abysmal as well, I doubt they fixed them for now. It was just as bad as the original one, of not worse tbh. Some of them were so obviously broken, I got no idea how those passed QC. I think ...

Yeah I know most people here would be interested in the keyboard as well, but since we got some collectors of everything vintage here, I figured I might as well ask. Maybe somebody already has one, but isn't happy with the condition or something.

Found a Dolch PAC 64, anyone wants to split?

Hey guys, found a decently priced Dolch PAC 64 which I'm interested in, but only in the keyboard part. Would anyone here be interested in the computer itself, so we can split up the price (~230€, or 115 each)? It's located in germany and since it's so large shipping even inside EU would probably be ...

I only ever tried to lube some Matias QC switches in the Alps universe, but personally I liked A LOT of Victorinox best. Like I drowned the slider in it. It doesn't work with original Alps very well though :(

That means, having full control over the manufacturing process, which was crucial to me. Does that mean that you changed the manufacturer of the plate/case?

Where can I still find Gateron Switches with milky bottom?

Hey guys, I've been looking for a while now and it looks like these are sold out everywhere? I guess they're not produced anymore (which might've been due to QC-issues? The ~10 switches I once had all showed chattering issues, although they came with different stems, so from different charges) I jus...

I actually like the idea. As a kid I would've loved a keyboard like this I think.

So I just got another Canon Typewriter, an AP 830.
It features undampened cream and green Alps. It also comes with a 6U spacebar, which is really nice I think.
I don't understand at all how the model numbers of Canon work. Did they just use whatever they had lying around?

Come to think of it, new MX-Whites sound pretty good. Nothing like Blue Alps, but they're much more pleasant than MX Blues. Imo. they're the best Cherry Switch @ stock.

Aristotles Stems are pretty nice, but nothing like blue Alps. Gateron clickies are even further off, the click is even higher pitched than that of MX Blues imo. Your best bet would probably be those Alps-MX-mount adapters and some clicky Alps switch. The plate and case you use have a huge impact as ...

On another note, I just don't get why these were used in Typewriters so frequently (Sharp 1050 had the same with different slider color). They feel horribly mushy. The on...

Personally I like both and it depends on the layout of the keyboard. For example I don't mind a floating keys 60% keyboard, but a floating keys MX HHKB just looks silly to me. The reason they're popular in general is that they're easier to clean (at least that's what's my impression, reading on norm...

Only thing I could think of is a R1 1u Delete. I'd like that instead of the blank on the True Whitefox layout, but maybe that's just me. Certainly no must.

That's actually a really nice idea, but I didn't mean it that way. The way it looks on your renders, it looks like the acrylic plate is shorter than the frame? Then this might not even be an issue.
