I think engine swaps and bodywork resprays are much more complicated and expensive than you realize, but I admire your appreciation for older cars.

Other than the layout, I get the impression that the Model F pretty much had everything better than the Model M. Tread carefully my friend, once you've used a Model F you won't be able to use a Model M again so only cross that threshold if your wallet is capable of doing so (and acquiring spares). ...

Personally I think beamspring is highly overrated. Sure, the sound and keyfeel are nice, but not any nicer than capacitive buckling spring. IMO there are no real advantages of beamspring over model f. The downsides of beamsprings are huge though, bad layouts, incredibly bad ergonomics and high pric...

I think the biggest difference is that Cherry MY boards are not regularly labelled the best keyboards of all time. The Model M is however, and MY boards ARE often named among the WORST keyboards of all time. Right, but the Model M probably is the best keyboard of all time to a lot of people, not ev...

Keycaps appear to be original APL. Nice find, this ought to go quickly!

It could be warped on one side? Use a heatgun or hair dryer and try straighten it out. Or try install it while the plastic is hot, it should be more forgiving.

What did he get wrong specificly? Doesn't the model M use a membrane? Yes, but using a membrane isn't the one defining feature of "mechanical" vs. "non-mechanical". There are RD keyboards that use a PCB, but that doesn't make them mechanical. Also, Linus never said Lexmark only made rubberdomes. He...

I love most of his videos to be honest, his server videos, office moving vlogs, and scrapyard wars series are really entertaining. He's just not a keyboard enthusiast like Thomas is.
At least Linus is getting the Model Ms name out there more as they deserve more appreciation

That black zenith badge is absolutely stunning. You should mend the coiled cable though. Feed a cable through the coils then tie a knot on the end so the coils stay tightly together, then heat up the cable. Once it cools down again the coils should stay in form. Thats if you're as OCD as me

I think this was back when Unicomp made for IBM (like lexmark did before them) Once IBM moved away completely from the market, Unicomp lost the right to make or sell IBM badged items - at least according to them. This SSK must've been produced by IBM and then given to unicomp as leftover stock
