I arranged my keyboards residing in the attic for a photo shoot:

May I ask what switches does the videoton VDN board come with? I'm thinking SKCC but possible futaba MD and some early cherry variants also.

I received the new alps cubic profile caps from Tai-Hai and I’m impressed. They included caps compatible with vintage boards including ISO profiles. You might notice my sets only have a big ass enter. I’m not sure if this is because I put Focus FK-2001 as my keyboard in my order but I’m glad they did, but most of my alps boards have a BAE. Only my Dell AT-101 has a “normal” enter.

They also included a shorter shift key for Focus keyboards along with the 1U “| \” key. I plan on installing this onto one of my Focus or Northgate boards and will post on the compatibility but I know it’s missing a 1U “=“ and “+” key needed for the numpad on my Omnikey 102. I also need to check the space bar length and I’m not sure what I’ll do with the F13 key! Worst case I can contact Tai-Hao and see if I can separately order keys.

Bonus gifts!
The blue switch is lighter and sounds/feels nice. The white switch is very heavy and I’m guessing meant for a space bar.

Pretty smart. How do you order those? How much are they? Tai Hao’s website doesn’t seem to list them.

I'm using this flimsy piece of shit 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) Image

For real though I love white SMK cherry mount so much.

Also, for anyone who doesn't know, the blank key on the left opposite the backslash actually outputs a different scancode (EUROPE_2) than the backslash so I've remapped it to windows key (LGUI) on my soarer's

I ordered them from these links:
https://shop.tai-hao.com/products/abs-104-a01black
https://shop.tai-hao.com/products/abs-104-a01bp201-1-1

This link has all of their alps stuff:
https://shop.tai-hao.com/categories/alps-keycaps

I paid ~$55 for each set (~$110 total) shipped to me in the USA. Shipping was surprisingly only a couple days. But is large portion of the cost.

Pricing, on Tai Hao? You’re better at them than I am. Thanks!

Is the build quality pretty bad on those? I was looking at this one and it seemed flimsy from other reviews:
