It won't work with Soarer's (either converter or controller). It works with hasu's 4704 converter. Thanks, i will think on buy one either way, i really am tempted It is cheapest directly from his online store, I think. Even though it is cheaper to build it yourself I recommend giving hasu a thumbs ...

Make sure to solder 2 1k resistors, each to the VCC and then to clock and data pins. Make sure to do that or it will likely not work.

Idk if the pro micro/teensies can fit in the plug though, those plugs are already taken up by screws and wiring to the db9.

I've also read that hydrogen peroxide, the miracle liquid, is also able to derust to some degree. I'll try it on the switchplates, literally I tested one and the resistance when closed was 100kR, it was that rusted in the sense plate. So Vanish napisan cleans, derusts, and also retrobrites...

I've removed the corroded switches from the even more heavily corroded switchplate, but some of the sense leaf legs have snapped off due to heavy corrosion... any way to fix this? So far I have lost 3 switches to this already

The next step might be a good idea to strike a deal with unicomp (using a new logo of course) and making some capacitive model M's, or some cherry sliders for the current switches. People love their caps lol

Wire data and clock to a 1k each to VCC. Don't just share them on one resistor lol. Tested it without a pullup and I don't think it worked much at all. I ended up finding that my pro micro was actually broken so eh

Use pullups because the cable is really long

And $50 shipping. Nice. I'll console myself with this: "No power cord and the unit has not been tested - see pictures for details and condition." That's SUCH a cop-out. That's a butt-standard power cord that still comes on stuff today. So MAYBE it's not working and they have plausible deniability. ...

Hey there Hasu controller fanboys and girls, as a fellow ancient junk collector I'm here asking if there is a way to flash Hasu's firmware onto a pro micro instead of Soarer's. From what I have seen, the Soarer's firmware does not work with a lot of keyboards but Hasu's on he other hand does. I wire...
