Didn't get mine before xmas. :cry: Either stuck in customs or shipped way past the deadline.
Maybe when I return from my Secret Holiday.

My Secret Santa was well on time so here is a - long overdue - picture. A beautiful set of dye-subbed Cherry MX-compatible caps from a Gabriele typewriter. Nice :geek:
On top of that there were three special caps thrown in, one of them skillfully hand-crafted!

Thank you, Santa!

That hand crafted cap is a classic!

If I were you, I'd be figuring out a smart layout for a custom MX board to take those Cherry dyseubs. They don't make fish bone legends like that any more…

That's just a misprint. I turned it around, and it's for people with 2 right hands.

This is a relegendable DSA keycap. All craftsmanship is of the highest qualitiy. The base is shot in brown ABS, the top is molded from transparent polycarbonate. Embedded in between is a masterfully decorated piece of paper by Secret Santa.<br />On the item is an image of a Christmas tree in brown and green. The tree is decorated with red and orange balls. It is menacing with a yellow, star-formed spike. The item is inscribed with the words &quot;prettig kerstfeest&quot; in brown ink.<br />The artwork relates to the celebrating of Christmas in the Netherlands in late December of 2013.

Likely arrived just in time, only received it yesterday because I was away for the holiday. How on earth did you know I was keen to know how metal keycaps feel but always to cheap to buy some? perfect gift, thanks a lot... :)

Now this Santa however is sad his gift hasn't arrived presumably yet though... :cry:

That's a fine (and superbly clean!) little haul you've got there, 002. The converter is a little more elegant than mine:

And multi coloured Cyrillic legends are right up there with Greek on my "don't really have a need for but really want anyway" list.

Kint's been damned with metal caps, though. I'd twitch until I had a whole set!

Santa came through with a very nice set of Cherry double-shots, a cherry.co.uk shopping bag, and two blend-a-dents! :lol: The latter I don't have much use for (yet?), but the key caps will go great on my ANSI Phantom with 1.5x modifiers. 8-) Thanks, Santa!

Use the blend-a-dent to clean the caps. It makes them minty fresh.

Purple modifier keys, as well as a proper ISO enter and some AltGR keys (of which I'm sure few people here would know what it does).

I'll take a better picture later, I have to go do some other stuffs right now and I don't have time to wait for my flash batteries to charge.

That would have been true on GH, but I doubt it here on DT.

Oh, I meant in real life people, not on the site. I'm around people who don't know a Model M from an Apple A1048 all the time.

Lovely purple, and I approve of the old IBM binder/slipcase in the background :)

If regular thin PBT's clacking sound is chop sticks on a rice bowl these Aluminum caps feel like a baseball bat. Not in a bad way, I just wouldn't want a whole set. Also there is some slight sideways motion possible since the cross in the caps stem is milled out of the circular surrounding. Maybe modable with a plier though. I can imagine metal caps are great for spacebars though.
Tesoro, the company that made those, and of which I had never heard before however just recently released a RGB illuminated Mechanical keyboard:
