I used the foam underlay that is...

lots of transistors there its interesting comparing the electronics of similar boards and finding they are different. The feeling might be improved by having new foam if you have the tools to cut the foam and also enough clamps to enable the two plates to be shut again after the new foam is in place

Ortek MAK-105TB Trackball ortek1.jpg ortek2.jpg ortek3.jpg Will be white Alps with a Futaba lock switch on the FN key. I got a used one that I took apart to harvest the switches from a while...

Sent an e-mail and PM to the OP but no reply yet. seems that there is still interest in the converter to AT but we would need at least a schematic and component codes to be able to make one ourselves which I am hoping the OP is able to provide.

Hi, I recently purchased what i thought was an Ortek MCK-101 board from Ebay as i recognised the coloured modifier keys. When it arrived it was indeed an Ortek MCK101, though the sticker is branded Mortek MK-102NT and it did indeed have the doubleshot keycaps however the switches were not genuine AL...

Re-designing Alps to MX Adaptors

Hi, I know there will be some of you in the community that have previously bought the Alps to MX adaptors made by nubbinator on GH, maybe he is on here also, however recently Shapeways has changed their formula for calculating pricing and so the price of the adaptors went up nearly 3x. As the new sh...
