I have a total noob question: I already own an IBM Model F XT and I am awaiting an converter from tinkerboy. In preparation I want to understand how to proceed further, after the converter has arrived. Assuming I have cleaned the board and ensured that the board is in a usable status, how do I setup...

Or if you clean and reassemble them as they become troublesome, you'll also be fine -- it's not an overwhelming issue, I think I've fiddled with about 6 switches on my V80 MTS over the past two years. :) Cleaning does the job! But I am not that enthusiastic over Matias quiet click switches to perfo...

KBP V80-MTS-Q-Olivette (Matias Quiet Click) for 80 € *EU wide shipped*

Hi wonderful people of deskthority! I sell this tenkeyless version with Matias Quiet Click switches. I have purchased it 1.5 years ago from the keyboard company in UK. It is in a pretty good shape. Unfortunately as some or maybe all Matias Quiet Click switches also the switches used in this KBP V80 ...

Thank you very much for your effort and answer. I have already contacted orihalcon via DT but he has not responded yet. I just thought that somebody at DT has a spare converter and is willing to sell it to me. So long I will wait ; ) but I am very excited to try out this keyboard in particular if it...

So finally I can tell you something about my Durgod Taurus K320. To be honest, there is a little story behind it ;) I have contacted Durgod by E-Mail in January this year and was asking for an option of a K320 with Cherry MX Clear switches. In the first instance there was no response. I have tried t...

^^ Finally I have got it managed, with great assistance by my girlfriend, to open up this Topre board. We were able to follow the suggestion to swap the rubber domes of the affected arrow keys with some domes from keys I do not use that often. It was the only solution to the problem of the strange s...

IIRC I was told that the flaw with the askew key was a side effect of Topre's plunger design and there wasn't much they could do about it, he even showed me a picture of his own Realforce that had a similar issue (although admittedly, mine was worse). They don't consider it a defect and likely won'...

Need advice for disassembly of Realforce

Recently I have been in Tokyo and have taken the opportunity to visit the sofmap/BIC-stores in Akihabara. There I have bought a Topre Realforce 87 UW 55g. I really like the keyboard but the build quality is not that outstanding as it is always claimed. I have got 2 problems with this keyboard, which...

My question concerning shopping mechanical keyboards in Tokyo: We all know that Topre keyboards are pretty expensive. Does there any shop in Tokyo exist which sells used Topre boards or of any other brand? I am thinking of keyboards which have been returned or which have some optical drawbacks. Some...
