The Phoenix Jr is such a neat board! The whole word processor/terminal is just weird looking. I almost grabbed the one that was on ebay recently but the price tag was eye-watering.

It has ITW intermediate mag-valve switches right?
I believe so yes, ITW magnetic valve second generation. Very smooth!

Lol, I was surprised too, I just scrubbed lightly in soapy water and left in sun for 6 hours. Seems like UV did the trick :)

This week's work set-up. HHKB running PhotoShop/personal system duty. Then, finally, daily driving My Model M.

This M was the first vintage board I bought, along with a Dell Bigfoot. This IBM was in quite a state when I got it. I've been buying parts and repairing it for some time. I made the decision to cushion mod this board too, which led me down a further rabbit hole. But finally, although it still ain't done, I have this board up and running. Thanks to the many people of here that either sold me parts to repair this or indeed helped me get it back to a working state with your knowledge.

It ain't anything exotic, like some of the beauties we have, but it's kind of a "proud dad moment", finally having this in circulation.

I know that feeling. Surely most of us do. The ones which take the longest feel the most satisfying to complete. It’s a human thing.

A dream came true, my tactile typing orgasm. HHKB Professional JP from 2009, a PD-KB420W, bought via buyee.jp which is a very good proxy. Modded with Deskeys Topre MX Silders and Cherry Vintage SAD Alphas. Shift, Space and Enter have kept their original stabilizers especially because I don't have a 2.5u space keycap with MX mount lying around.

Okay, So this is one of my favourite boards in my collection. I see that the general consensus on Acer switches is kinda meh, but you like what you like. :ugeek:

I have the same model - same language/layout, even - and it's a great one! I quite like the Acer switches.
However, as someone (Mu?) recently pointed out, the roll-over is not amazing.

Oh yes, I read their comment on another thread, then wanted to test my board again.

Been using it for 2 days and I am in love :)
