New post [Keyboards] Buckling spring corne?

How do you unify them, then?
Thing is: there's some stuff you have to do *on board* the keyboard. Example: function layers. If one half of your keyboard has your Fn key but the other half doesn't know you're pressing it, your function is no fn' use!

New post [Workshop] MT3 Doubleshot

I recently saw a lot of people using flipped R4 MT3 on the thumbcluster of Kyrias, Cornes, Lily58 etc. I wonder if it maybe would be a good idea to include some flipped caps (maybe on the Dye-sub sets, than I guess this would be a problem with the molds) or some R4 blanks.
And maybe it's just me, but

New post [Keyboards] Space Cadet Keyboard on eBay

Oh, aye I have. 'Tis the stuff of infamy!

I'd forgotten it was 3-1 though. Inverness well deserved the headline!
As for Shallot's post match report , I'd be wary of getting rejected by more than just the local Sainsbo's if I spent a pretty penny the like of that. :oops:

New post [Keyboards] Vintage Increases Value?

Original Apple Pro Speakers, as came bundled with the iMac. Bloody useless on any computer besides the G4 iMac and Power Mac. Sound decent enough for their size, and the acrylic Apple aesthetic of the time is strong in them. Maybe it'll get more retro as the days of iMac colours sink back in! My G4

New post [Keyboards] Unicomp SSK USB issues

The weird shit they're pulling on the controller / USB port is the Unicomp SSK's red flag to me. If you could buy it with a regular single controller (2KRO like an original SSK is fine by me, if done right) and a USB C or even micro port, then I'd have one of these already. But everything I've heard

New post [Keyboards] resolved - need community advice on ebay purchase gone awry (IBM F AT)

*UPDATE* Got a partial refund from the seller after a few days of silence and I'm slowly restoring the board. I ANSI modded it (minus alts for now) and fixed the barrel. Will need some glueing work on the case and some painting... not looking forward to painting...

New post [Other external] Great/Interesting Finds

These are the New Bitcoin Boys.
They've now got the purchasing power that their own parents never had. Hence, why goods on Ebay are going at those levels.
Not going to stop any time soon. Until they start battling amongst themselves for the super high stratosphere, which leaves the seller in a

New post [Keyboards] Is the IBM KB-9910 Good?

New post [Reviews] $400 for buckling springs: do you get the F77 Repro or the F122 original? Here's what I think.

I have an original F77 and let me tell you that the typing experience is unique. Very similar to the F122 but more solid in the last one. if you ask me, I prefer both. But, If I'd have to choose between the F77 replica and the F122, I'll go all day with the F122.

New post [Keyboards] New F77 or a Unicomp?

I own an F/AT, F/XT, F77, M, and M SSK.
I love them all. :)
It doesn't matter which one you get, because you'll probably get the other one at some point anyway. So I'd say start with the M's :)
I've very satisfied with my F77, although I don't have the caps yet and the powder coating is not as indestructable

New post [Workshop] (Concept) modulable keyfeel optical discrete switch

Wiki claims that the best of humans can hear up to 28 kHz. Dogs up to 45 kHz and cats up to 79 kHz. It is not a problem to make it about 30 kHz. Going higher, especially to the cat range would mean to cut corners a tiny bit on control precision since common counters are fed by 180 MHz source at most
