It's ridiculous... Last week I was like "why do I have to keep buying keyboard stuff???" This week I just keep telling myself it's ok because every keyboard item I ever bought was under 100€. Only 2 were over 50€. Still, it's a lot of stuff. I could easily calculate the total I have spent on keyboar...

Why not make the whole marketplace members-only then?
It's customary in most forums.

I personally don't mind the double posts and think it is okay for a thread like this. It's not a discussion thread where you lose track of a discussion when people keep doubleposting (yes I know I am contradicting myself here by discussing).

I wonder why they went insolventz. They just went full Insolventz. You never go full Insolventz. Clearly they were lacking a Duden. 99€ starting price for 4 G80-1501? That's quite steep... 25EUR is steep for an awesome NKRO G80-1XXX with doubleshots? Sure, it's common, but it's still a great board!...

Wow, now I'm already being thanked in this thread. It's not like that stuff is hidden. True, but not all of us find the time and leisure to scour eBay every day of the week.

Personally I just think it would get very slippery if you have sweaty fingers. Like Filco caps, you mean? I dunno, I never tried them. But as it appears to be made of smooth metal I would think so. The ABS caps on my CM Storm are kinda slippery for example. So are the POM keys on my Black G80-1800....

I doubt it would stick unless you glue it in there... Once the Fimo has hardened out, it is no longer sticky.

Unfired clay will dry out however and start to crumble... I think it's safe to say we do not want pieces of dried clay inside our keyboard switches :shock: Hot glue perhaps? Not undoable but cheap and dosage should be easy... Plus it would assume whatever shape your keycaps have so it should be pret...

Let me get this straight: True keyboard nerds will happily invest enormous amounts of time and money into buying or building ergonomic keyboards like the G80 5000 or the Ergodox, yet reprimand anyone who dares to flip their spacebar for ergonomic reasons...?

Yes, MX-Blacks and thin lasered PBT caps. Or, POM with white infills on the black version. I think both kinds of caps are decent (PBT a little better) but the lettering on both are bad. Lasered looks crap from the beginning, infills look like crap after a few months. To me blacks are cool though, i...

Yes. I'm quite positive that those are the remains of Cumb.de where they used to sell for 2€ each, plus shipping. I'm willing to bet that those are the same people who are selling on Amazon as prima.ing where I got a black USB G80-1800 for a good price recently.

Alternative method: Step 1: Get a pen, like the Bic pen in the picture. Step 2: Open the rear end. Step 3: Burn the rear end. Use a lighter or something. Don't burn it too much. The plastic needs to get weak. Step 4: Put the rear end in one of a Model M's screw holes so it fits over one of the bolt...

What would you say a regular Model M (white label) in German ISO is worth? Seller says the condition is good, and fully working, but used, and in need of a cleaning.

You are right, it's essentially the same, my thinking was kind of backwards. Anyways, I just got out one of the PS2 boards and it worked, but feels a lot less smooth than the USB one does. The enter key showed the same issue as the "E" key on my other 1800. I am surprised to see that some keys seem ...

The thing is, shipment doesn't take place until september. And at 56€, you might as well get an MX-Board (60€ shipped in Germany), get it immediately, and have a spare keyboard to boot. The only thing you will save is the labor of taking all the caps off. You still have to take apart the switch itse...

PT 1: Zowie Okay now. The Celeritas got here alright. It is a really good deal, like new condition, but so much cheaper than new. Comparing it to the Quickfire TK, it is excellently built. Heavy, stable, sleek. The keycaps are much thicker and rougher in texture which is pleasant. The printing is o...
