New post [Workshop] Need some help with my Mextel Autokey 40

I have been doing a lot of research lately on the components of the motherboard of the AutoKey, specifically the EPROM chip with the quartz window on the top of it. With the autokey fully assembled, the quartz window is accessible via the plastic removable cover on the right side of the board. The

New post [Mice & other input devices] Trackball for smaller hands

Update, I orderd an Elecom EX-G Pro (~70 euros). Short summary:
- buttons are easier to click than the M570 (a good thing)
- scroll wheel operates easily but feels cheap and make quite some noise
- enough buttons in a comfortable position, I especially like the one for the ring finger
- in general the

New post [Keyboards] Leading Edge Wal1 (Oak FTM switch) keyboard typing

I have the same board basically. I used a pre-made adapter / Soarer's converter from Orihalcon and this board works perfect. I believe this is XT.

New post [Workshop] Sharp PA1000H - typewriter turned keyboard

Hi guys. Been a while since I updated this thread, but I have an opportunity to try again, so I might as well post more stuff here.
DT user ntv242 has asked me to proxy him another Sharp but he only wants the switches and keycaps. His typewriter was in slightly better shape than mine was, but anyway...he

Waiting for official statement from staff of the museum but main reason was that University of Jyväskylä that provided space needed for the museum decided to use it for other purposes.

New post [Other external] Great/Interesting Finds

We likely will never know what happened. Pity. The Displaywriter looked complete, and I have no spare energy to do it justice. I fear that the keyboard will be severed from the rest that ends up dumped, and the keyboard sold at higher profit to a wealthy hoarder.

New post [Workshop] Where and how to order custom plates? The way to silence...

Heya Fellas,
I got a spare KBD75 PCB (leftover of the plan to swap the contents of my SKB75 if I make errors, but the first try was gold).
The idea is to buy a KBD75 case and mod it to really really silence: Weights, dampening mat between PCB and plate, full stabs treatment, silence MX Greys, lubed,

New post [Keyboards] My 1991 NorthGate OmniKey 102 with ALPS SKCM Whites

One thing that you didn't mention is soldering wick . If I only have to desolder one or two switches then I tend to just use solder wick. My go to company for solder wick is the Chemtronics one that I linked. I have found that that one works really well (I have used some which are really bad).

New post [Reviews] "Project N" Wyse WY-50 (Kailh BOX Navy)

So, I bought a bunch of Box Pinks and Box Jades and put them in my other Velocifire. Opinions:
* The Box Pinks feel like what Cherry MX blues should feel like: light. Easy to type on. They sound much less annoying than the MX Blues, but they're still high pitched. For me, though, they're a bit
