Post your keyboard/keycaps!

@funkmon: Even the F62 has two superfluous keys, but the F107 is beyond the pale (although at least it stopped before going all the way to 122). I do, however, like the look of widescreen-format keyboards (and I have to admit that I have an F107 in my collection, waiting to be restored and converted to USB).

This was a build that just worked. Not a lot of forethought went into this. I was just bored, had a lot of ingredients laying around and this is what came out. Didn’t even know what keycaps I was gonna use til 10 minutes ago.

Ducky Shine 7 with lubed hako clears, lubed stabs, tire balance weights added to case for extra heft and sound and drawer liner on the inside. I give it a 9.5 out of 10 just because the switches feel excellent but not amazing. Very enjoyable to type on.

The bottom of the case is black, I think I’ll spray paint it white.

Edit: aaaand my wife just stole it. Not joking. Sigh... at least I get my BKE modded realforce back. 😏

So, regarding the XT being the best keyboard IBM ever made, I must concede that I may have spoken too soon. While I do consider the XT to be the best of the traditionally available Models F floating around, I just tried an F107. It turns out these are better.

The keyfeel and build quality of the XT put it above the 122 and AT, in addition to the keyboards derived from it, like the Bigfoot and so on, but the F107 feels like an XT, but weighs as much as the sun, and also you can use it with a virtually modern layout. Indeed, the layout may be the best of the Fs, because you can use Windows and Context Menu keys, unlike even a Model M.


Unfortunately it means you might have to buy a bigger desk.
I'm stoked you got one!
