Thanks for looking Engicoder.
that is a silkscreen layer (green) dot to mark pin 1. sorry, the picture is not clearer.

I would just have folded the controller under the bottom plate using slightly longer wires.

Also remember that xwhatsit made his controller as wide as it was because of the original ribbon cable width and to fit at least one of the grounding / mount points.

Why? Seems better to me to use a proven design, especially for touting a complete working product.

if you want pearl then you need to order 20,000 caps.

So who is up for a 1 part group buy !
Only if you include blank black right shifts and 7x white spacebars.

Not sure if this helps, but we are all subject to Unicomps keycap dye-sub quality and positioning (including the caps for this project), unless you source caps from older Model M's or F's. I can think of only one other source for caps, and they are not cheap.

Sorry if this has already been answered, but it's not clear to me whether a split left shift requires a modified layout. Will the stick layout allow to split the left shift? Left shift has barrel positions that would allow either the standard 2.25 key or an ISO short left shift (1.25x) and the 1x n...

Should also be able to do 1.5u backslash, 1.25u enter, and a 1u to the left of it right? Not that I have any intention of doing so because that would be weird. Yes, that's a valid combo too. Being used to an ANSI enter, I would have a tough time with a long reach to enter like that, but for those u...

I understand these keyboards, but I don't understand your diagram! Hence the 'crudely' moniker above it - an artist, I am not. The drawing itself is of AT style Model F barrels, in the spacing necessary for whatever width key is appropriate. Take the normal 62 key layout : http://s10.postimg.org/tk...

Hi there, I have a question, what will be the most flexible layout and will I be able to modify it ? If I get a F77 with full size backspace and shift - will I be able to later modify it to split backspace and/or split shift ? - assuming I buy the additional flippers/barrels/keys. Basically, I can'...

Pretty long stem. Right? ;)

Nice. Thanks for the pic. Every row is unique, stem length wise.

Thanks Hypersphere for the well wishes - I do hope PayPal resolves this hold satisfactorily. We are actually making the PCB more like the original 4704 design with this change.

Looks like I have 229 Model F flippers. Enough for 2 sets of 84, with 61 left over. Nice! Where did they all come from? I have an old XT I'll probably sacrifice, then bite the bullet and buy some Ellipse flippers for a backup FSSK. All the flippers used by an xwhatsit controller shall be similar. T...

I collected a bunch of Model F parts just to have; but now with Ellipses' board ordered - I presume I will never use. I should probably do a count on how many Model F flippers I have ("a lot"). How many flippers does an SSK need?

I'm working on a redesign of Xwhatsit's controller. The things I am changing are cable pitch, PCB size, and USB connector. The ribbon cable pitch that I want to use is 0.1". This is common enough that single pre-cut 2, 3, or 4 inch pieces can be purchased from Digikey or Mouser - and is much easier...
