At this point additional language sets are now possible - this was not the case before. Zed is working on Model F quality APL and JIS sets too!
OK to add Czech as an option if Zed is up to creating it and if someone wants it!
Please do post here if you would personally like to order any other specific language key sets.
GetInTheRolls please check out the manual which offers a full checklist of steps in the troubleshooting section. I just updated it today. One section is dedicated to the specific issue of one key not working. I'd guess your spring needs re-seating or replacement but please follow the checklist.
Are there any plans for a Thai sublegends set? A Model F with Thai keycaps exists, but is incredibly rare.
That would be a yes if you are interested in ordering one.
High quality Thai sublegends are kinda rare in mechanical keyboards, so I'd certainly purchase a set if one was made!
A bit of information if production is indeed considered. Thai keyboards are in ANSI layout. I have never seen one in ISO layout. I ordered my Model F in the split backspace HHKB layout, so the | \ ฅ ฃ key should come in 1u and 1.5u size. Special modifiers do not need to be made because they typically are in English.
The original specifications for the Thai layout has a slightly different number row.
The most common layout as used today.
As seen on an Apple keyboard. Note the 1u | \ ฅ ฅ key which is a by-product of the right side being chopped off slightly. Also the Caps Lock is label is replaced with ก/A , which performs the same function as Caps Lock, toggling lower and upper legends.
Many of the top right characters on the IBM Model F are in the wrong places. The number row is also much different from modern layouts. Typography is similar to Thai typewriter fonts, such as "DB Bradley Curved X". https://thaifaces.com/thaitype/bradley/#0
There are some slight differences between IBM's font and this one, such as ง having a downward curve and the ไ ๆ having more sharper, angular curves.
Another font IBM's is similar to is "DB TongSiam X". The ผ ฝ keys are a bit different.
The Model M also had Thai versions, but with a more modern font which has less character than the old typerwriter style font IMO. I think this user put Model M keycaps on his Model F AT.
