New post [Group buys] F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

I do recommend non-selective reading.
wobbled’s first post about that price was fairly neutral:
he then posted twice in a similar manner, even saying, when the possibility of a mistake was mentioned: " I do hope so.. he sold me industrial ssk's and f107s for very fair prices in the past ".

New post [Off-topic] How did you found your internet nickname?

Tried to think of a sensible, lore-correct name for my character at the time. Failed, so I chose a stupid one instead. Of course that's what people started calling me, so 14 years later, there it still is.

New post [Keyboards] Filco multi-pressing after coffee accident - Help!

Trying to avoid desoldering until it's the only action left available. I can try continuity testing each affected switch. I assume this can be done while they are still soldered in? Are there any voltage limits I need to worry about?
Testing the switch by bridging the contacts with tweezers on the PCB

New post [Keyboards] British Telecom "Leopard" Keyboard

From the broken part on the spacebar you can see a bit of the stab there. Looks like a long wire.
I personally think this might be foam and foil. Im pretty interested to see what it is as well

New post [Keyboards] Smelly Epson KB03 keyboard - Any advice?

Thanks for the advice!
I've heard the same about these switches so definitely not opening them up. I never lubed any keyboard but if its possible to do it on this without dismantling the switches I can definitely try, otherwise I'll just clean the switches as much as i can with an airduster and paintbrush

New post [Other external] Great/Interesting Finds

I mean, yeah, I guess. PM me with some offers. I like XT and AT layouts, and clicky alps. It's honestly not that cool though. I tried to see if I could use that right shift to replace the backspace key on my F XT, but it doesn't work.

You're right: the pod's chair has DataHands on the armrests.
What a coincidence: I was just reading about the DataHand on Xah Lee's website today.

New post [Want to buy] [WTB - UK/EU] Model F springs

I wasn't impressed with the key feel when I first got it. I had a feeling something was wrong with the switches. They were barely tactile and scratchy. I know buckling springs have a wear-in period, but I've typed on pristine and NOS Models F before. They're way better than what I experienced when
