Re: Why do you need foam on your model f?

I can't think of another reason why the boards feel like shit after putting them together. I'm going to assume the hammering apart and hammering back into place is what's possibly bending the metal and intorducing an inconsistent feel to the board. It's driving me nuts. It wasn't as bad on the firs...

Re: Some of my best finds from Computer Reset

As for the IBM 5140s it’s not uncommon to see SKCM browns sell for $4 per switch these days in great-or-NIB condition, and maybe $3 for decent condition. As a brown Alps hoarder and enthusiast I’d love to see these go for less but I can’t deny that they are worth those prices. The 5140 has around 6...

Re: Why do you need foam on your model f?

Bad Model F foam doesn't necessarily completely ruin the key feel but the problems that could arise are that some of the degraded foam could get under some of the flippers. This will cause some keys to become unresponsive or stay pressed when you let go. Another less major problem is you might have ...

That's a good point, and it's also the very reason our old company existed in the first place. We bought surplus components from companies that for whatever reason no longer needed the parts.
