So we are ordering some blank keys from SP over at geekhack, I'm trying to figure out how all these shades of the same color differ, especially the grays, SP has like 25 different shades of it: GDL,GRA,GHO,GEC,GGG,GOD..etc..

I heard sixty has color samples from SP, one of these I assume?

anyhow, if anyone has a picture of the color samples from SP it'd be very helpful, thanks!

Someone should do a subtle white/beige (with very subtle difference) with black lettering for a double shot round.

How come nobody had done the obvious yet?

Clears (UEV).

That's the first thing that came to my mind also.

Or just a regular-ass white on black set and none of the vintage crap. If get some time, I might just do my own GB. I doubt it, though.

UEV only works for blank keys, OTD already ordered some relegendable UEV ones:

I'm not a huge fan (no pun intended) of "aircraft carrier" keyboards, but that's hot.

The keyboard is too big but the clear keys are HAWT!

Agreed with Ripster.

Can't believe I just said that.

I only have very few. I have only their basic ABS color ring, which includes even less grays than the one above.

Hi everybody!

Can please someone check which PBT color the good old Cherry black keys have?

Otherwise I will tell Moogle about this forum!

And you better tell me the right color, or all blame will be on the deskthroating-community!

RCH may stand for:

* Radio Club de Honduras, an amateur radio organization in Honduras
* Railway Clearing House, the British technical standards cleaning house for railways
* Red cunt hair, slang for a very small amount
* The Royal Canadian Hussars, a Primary Reserve armoured regiment of the Canadian Forces
* Royal Columbian Hospital, a tertiary hospital in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada

ps:
Is it ABS or PBT?

Because this color is for double-shot keys it must be ABS.
Thanks!
ps/2: I just see it is a color within the PBT samples.
So it will be RCS for the double shots.

Thanks a lot Webwit!!!

Now I can place the order ...

Webwit might be trolling you with a red color or something :D
I don't see RCH on my sample at all.

The funny part is that its impossible to select a black from remote, since they wrote the code on it in black too.

He was not trolling at all. First I thought he would, that's why I looked up what RCH means.

RCH and RCS are not red.

I'm sure Moogle will love the keys.

They will fit perfectly!

It seems the Kbdholic links to the colour rings have gone dead...
Did anyone cache them?
