Absolutely! The unadorned SSK is an all time classic. Really can't go wrong with that!

Received this beauty back from Maxx@phosphorglow.net today, it used to be a dirty and sticky ANSI SSK :lol:

Very nice one ! Thinking to bolt and screw mod one of mine aswell, but not sure how accurate is my experience maybe will try on another M before as I'm not entirely satisfied with the one I made.

Congrats really nice, I don`t think I`ve ever seen those page up/down symbols on an SSK though?!?

Thanks guys.

There's indeed a led behind the esc that can be turned on/off through a key combo.

I do agree that the IBM french legends are kind of weird, they look much nicer on cherry :>

Costed me about 150$ + the shipping, was quite pricey. Good thing the SSK was from cindy so rather cheap.

Nice looking SSK, and the Bronin is a cool touch ;) The barrel plate is painted orange ?

It's actually just a sheet that sits on top of the plate, I took an extra green one because well I have a obsession with green :lol:

I'd like a buckling spring top hat cap. We could have a run of them for DT club members!

IBM or Topre. We're that kind of club. Quite enough MX novelties out there already.

This is easy to solve :) Decent Keyboards makes them and we could organize a small GB with a custom order. I was thinking about this the other day.

I'll have to make a small plan, have to get the hang of Deutsche Post for distribution and have to see how big this can go.
The price per cap is 5$ for a order of 8 pcs. Don't want to start something without some planning :P

For starters we need the graphics for the DT logo for top print and DESKTHORITY logo for side print. With these I can make an inquiry and see what the costs would be. When I made the SUN logo caps it was 40$ for 8 caps + shipping from Japan.

If someone else wants to do this here is the link -> https://www.etsy.com/shop/DecentKeyboards

I'd be in for a complete set of nice caps with some interesting font, something like this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/202335731/ ... _active_20

But not for the price of a complete SSK...

Edit: Of course without those windows shortcuts!

Well, if I start a GB it's not going to be something big. Just one cap and a limited number, something I can deal with easy and in case of problems can take the loses, something like I did with the techkeys.us mini GB. I don't have the time to deal with something big :)

That would be Cool.


I would love a Sun , SGI, DEC, Wyse and IBM cap for model M, basicly one from all the old computer manufacturers from the 80s :).
