Hello Filth! Wodan the recycling station gladiator found some not so gemmy gems.
What do you actually need those old and dirty boards for? I think I'd only waste my time on them to salvage switches :)

Cheers

Most of the boards he salvaged don't have desirable switches. They have desirable keycaps

I guess we speak of thick PBT dyesub without shine? Some G80 SAD caps? I remember people completely losing their mind about those caps. Super rare, very expensive, true status symbol :D

Since I've switched to US Ansi layout most of the germans caps don't really matter to me anymore.

PBT Dyesub caps also really react well to sandblasting!
And since they don't yellow, it's one less step to refurb them :)

Very nice, you've got a blue Alps and a Model F AT in there. Lots of ISO-DE boards. My favorite was the Amiga board. Keep up the good work!

The Amiga board is unfortunately some rubber cup model :(

Have you ever even opened a Model F?
Where did you get the impression a Model F can be "desoldered"?

And my words were "keyboard shaggers" and "hippies"

No, I got the impression that some users here don't really collect keyboards rather have other intents.

Come on Khers, I know you're not a child! I don't believe we have underage children present. Wodan can "take it" trust me. He likes to make comments so he can recieve some comments...pretty harmless really.

I think the correct term is that we didn't have a lot of them.

At present, I'm not so sure.

Razer this and Zealios that.

I don't know to be honest? I know redmaus was underage when he first joined but the argument is valid not to post in this manner with adolescents present. As you can see our admins are not "rushing in" to delete my posts so who cares right? :maverick:

I am glad you have overcome your passive-aggressive phase and reached open hostility :lol:

Still not sure what exactly I did to help you justify going full yo-momma but it sounds like the proctologist treating you can finally afford a Porsche :D

Nice haul, Wodan. Blue Alps and the F AT are pretty decent recycler finds.
