I would be interested in a black ABS one with AT-connector and magnets :D Everything is better with magnets :evilgeek:

The fastening method doesn't really matter too much, I just like the smoothness when e.g. a lid is held in place with magnets in product packaging.

Green Alps are not that hard to come by. I have a bunch of them in some old vintage Wyse boards. https://www.elecshopper.com/wyse-00-600-01-terminal-keyboard.html A lot of the old Zenith boards, like the KB-2, also have green Alps. Price would've been well within the budget too without 60$shipping ...

I kinda threw that option out of the window when I saw the prices were in dollars. Now that I had a quick look it is still more expensive than having one made here thanks to the 24% VAT added after the initial cheaper price. Assuming they ship from accross the Pond. I couldn't find the detailed addr...

And the second quote is in. A much more reasonable 70€. If I can get the Dolch then I might just get a 2u backspace and call it a day so I could send a final quote to the vocational school. @pomk the first more expensive quote was from Prolaser and the second cheaper was from Tampereen vesileikkaus....

@Khers Yea, I kinda thought that caps and switches are going to be the hard part. Sticking to ISO especially the Finnish/Swedish variant always makes life a lot harder when it comes to getting keycaps. I found a picture of pretty much exactly what I want from the wiki, so there surely is hope https:...

Build log: Alps64 in a handmade birch case

A little background: A couple of years ago I bought my first mechanical keyboard. It was a Ducky Shine 2 with MX Blues. Then I got a Ducky Mini with MX Reds. Not knowing of anything better, I liked it so much I ended up selling the Shine 2. Then I got a Model M. Liked the switches but couldn't deal ...

Dear Oracle, How much should one be willing to spent to make a dream of his to come true? I'm not dreaming of anything too big or special, no artisans, none of those fancy round 6 keycaps. Oh, if only those caps came in Alps mount I'd get them for my Omnikey instantly :( Just a little something for ...

After using an Omnikey 101 with pine whites for almost 2 weeks now, I do have to admit that they feel quite nice. I was afraid that they would be a small disappointment after getting used to capacitive buckling springs, but it turned out I had no reason to be afraid. One thing is a small annoyance t...

Great review like always :) At first I thought that it can't get much louder than the F, but that sound sure is something beyond belief. Is the speed limitation there even with the xwhatsit contoller and having solenoid turned off? Too bad I missed the opportunity, in August a 5251 terminal with key...

Hi Chyros! I've really enjoyed watching your reviews this year, keep 'em comin! As I don't have the chance to try out too many different keyboards, your videos are the next best thing.
