Simple, elegant, my MX endgame. I love it.
Simply beautiful :)
As an customs uninitiated may I ask what board this is? KMAC?
Also, are the keycaps Ansi dyesubs?

Does vintage clears have any other significant difference to modern clears, except of being a lot smoother? How is the tactility, is it about the same?

Yup and yup !

KMAC2 with G81-3000SAU keycaps


It's about the same, but they feel slightly smoother. I didn't build it myself so I was somewhat force onto them, but I really like them.

A little act of self-indulgence, I'll freely admit.

Custom dye-job (on, indeed, Unicomp blanks) from the same guy on etsy who did the Iberoamerican layout keycap set that I posted a couple pages back.

I now regret not having ordered a couple of those for Cherry MX mounts as well... but that omission can be easily fixed.

I wonder if this can be done at home. I'm needing a couple non-standard keycaps, like a big red enter with something like "Western Democracy".

Ask the guy! Works well, ain't expensive and will probably accomodate your wacky demands (I know mine are).

Canon typewriter caps? Just picked up an S-16 on ebay and will hopefully be arriving later this week. How do they feel? (is the profile noticeably higher?) I'm thinking about putting them on my Z-150.

Haha, coincidentally, these caps came off a S-16! I have mixed feelings on these caps. The machines on which they came with, make the caps feel much to high and insanely taxing on the fingers to use. With linear switches, the caps make typing an incredibly laborious feat. However, on orange SKCM or brown SKCM alps, they feel fantastic. The profile is sculpted but it doesnt feel like SA to me. They dont feel super high. They invite the finger tips to hover just above the keys. I like them only on certain switches. On SKCM blues it made the switches feel much too stiff. But on lighter oranges or on rounder browns they feel much better.

Thanks for the info! Even more coincidentally, I got an M0115 with orange alps delivered yesterday and I'm considering using the S-16 caps on it like you did however I might sell it so I can put the money towards a synthesizer :D

Got this cool beast for quite cheap some days ago on eBay, but the switches bind a bit too much, time to restore it ! First FLS experience, and I'm quite disappointed, it doesn't get any edge over modern alternatives. But the LOOKS ... they are, they are quite better than some modern boards :roll:

What HHKB is that?
The FLS board looks pretty nice as well, is the case metal?

the HHKB is a PD-KB420W, it's basically the japanese HHKB we know (and love ?)

the case itself isn't, but the bottom is !

I ordered blank caps and laser engraving from my layout. Then I stuffed polymer clay in the slots and put it in the oven for 30 minutes. So I obtain non-erasable caps.

It looks great! Did you try cleaning that ink marks around keycap legends? Is it even possible or they are 'a part of the ship'?
