New post [Reviews] Hyper 7 keyboard review (Kailh BOX Burnt Orange)

It feels like we're dancing around the edge of a great model:
Some of the new microcontrollers mount as a USB storage device, for "drag and drop to program". What if a keyboard controller also showed up as a 50kb flash drive, and you just wrote a file with the desired keymap to it?

New post [Keyboards] Alps Appreciation

Thanks, I will try the floss mod. I have only heard about using it with buckling springs, never with Alps, but it makes sense that it would work.

New post [Want to buy] [WTB][EU-ES] BTC 5100 / 5100C
Hi! I just bought this BTC 5100c and as you can see 4, 5 and f10 keycaps arent the original ones.
I will like to buy the BTC 5100 or 5100c Black and grey keycap set to complete it or the full keyboard if the price its ok.
Thank you!

New post [Keyboards] Classic Unicomp Speaker Hole?

Damn, I didn't even notice the cable being in a different location. Almost need to open the thing up and look at the internals at this point, seeing the cable is in a completely different spot. Interesting.

New post [Keyboards] Are all PBT keycaps shine-resistant

I've still a couple of AEK IIs somewhere. One much more used than the other which is more or less still NIB. I'll scrutinise their caps in detail sometime.

New post [Mice & other input devices] Matias makes a mouse

All the way back in 1997, I got my first laptop. An Acer Extensa 355, I think, it was a total piece of shit, as it turned out! Immediately, I loathed the trackpad, which was beyond farcically small, even by the standards of the day. So I bought a clip on Logitech trackball.

New post [Keyboards] Drill bit size for screw-modding a Model M keyboard?

Bolt mod process recommendations:
I bolt modded a number of IBM Model M keyboards many years ago (~2014), having learned what I've noted below from a fellow community member:
I used an inexpensive drill press found on Amazon to drill through the plastic rivets, a 0.07" drill bit, and 2/56 x 5/16 Stainless

New post [Gallery] IBM SSK club!

So pretty! Yeah the SSKs seem to fare poorly with their rivets. My SSK needs a bolt mod despite still being new/sealed in box when I found it (hooray for poorly named eBay listings flying under the radar so while not cheap I got a great deal on it considering it was NOS). Biggest mistake was opening
