Stuff keeps going for min bid so I guess I'm getting another board sooner than I thought lol. Should have Olympia clears.
Nice! I debated going for that, but decided to save some cash.

Hope it's nice!

Re: Have you ever gotten scammed in a keyboard-related transaction?

Got scammed here by a scammer that was going around the communities with various alts. He was a real pain in mechmarket, apparently. Lost $150 that was supposed to be a 5140 with brown Alps. But, eventually he did contact me, under the guise of remorse, and sent me a 96kee with 55g "zinks" (zealios ...

Re: reverse force switch interest

I am certainly interested in the implementation. Is it contact-based? Sadly, yes. Could do a contact-less version but that would kill compatibility with CherryMX and the like. (Different board required) I actually consider that an upside for a new switch as that compatibility is crucial for getting...

Thanks again Zed for the awesome work.
Lovely board, and it looks great on your desk.

Something I noticed though is that the caps lock is upside-down.

Oh my, so it is. That is my bad, how did I not notice! Haha.

Re: WTB/WTT For a WANG 724/725 keyboard with Alps SKCM

Bump. For more reference: the Omnikey is an OmniMac Ultra with really good condition white alps, probably 9.5/10, quite similar to NOS I have in other Alps boards. Also have an Ultra T but that's in worse condition and dirty. If someone has one of these in good condition, I'll trade both for that on...

It's also NKRO and fully programmable with QMK over USB. I redid the entire matrix with diodes since it originally lacked them. :)

I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

Can't say as to expense, but I've definitely seen more gold label Northgates than leading edge 2214s.

Ooh, this does look promising! Though admittedly CommonSense still has the advantage of off the shelf parts, even if it is a bit of a pain to configure.

Blacks aren't terrible. Too stiff for my liking, but they are competent linears.

Not bad, just kinda meh when you have so many other options nowadays.

I got a few of these from primekb. They aren't bad, though I'm not necessarily sure I see the need for a GB and all the hassle involved with that when they are already available there for only a bit more.
