what have I found here? Wasn´t the highest bidder and auction ended but it looks interesting though? 2€ seems quite low. Should I went higher then my 1,50€ :shock:

Could be an NTC board. http://deskthority.net/wiki/NTC_KB-6151

Congratulations to the buyer for that price, looks like a very nice clicky Alps board to me.

thats it. fuck, should have went with 2,50€. Wonder if the lucky buyer is actually around here somewhere. Feel bad for the seller though. Probably would have told him to keep it as 8.10€ with shipping can´t be satisfying for him.

Is this indeed a beam spring? What does it take to get this working with a contemporary computer?

That was already posted on the previous page. Yes, it's beam spring. All it takes to get it working is xwhatsit's wonderful controller.

Ooops! Sorry for the redundant post; I missed the first one. Thanks for answering anyway. Good to know that these beam springs can be revived.

Nice. :)

Scratch that. Not a BS. Might be able to use the shell though. Would make a sexy frankenboard. ^^

It's an Oak. Can't use the shell either AFAIK. :(

Still looks pretty.

man seebart, starting to hate you ;) . Been following half the stuff you just made public. Was hoping to get some nice discounts on some of them but now everyone on deskthority knows. :(

I actually had a Laser keyboard with the SMK MX mount switches, for what it's worth, that did that same solution for avoiding a truncated backspace or right shift with the big-ass enter.

Well, while of course seebart is free to post whatever he wants, sometimes I too wish he wouldn't post everything he finds.

Hehe, all the following terms have something in common: laser, vertical pipe (as bar), backslash, truncated ...
A "clear cut" solution - Occam's razor :)

Big ass return just needs one of those, right across the middle, and that would be quite a nice layout.

When ISO return isn't oversized enough for you: go big assed!

well excuse me kbdfr :? , as I understand this thread, informing and sharing is the point here. Anyway quite a few more users will roaming ebay than we have here. Real "finds" have become rare :cry: . Often the auctions that end during the daytime in the week are promising. ;)
Been following half the stuff you just made public
so have others. DT is not "public" as far as I am concerned. This is a "small" elite community 8-) . But if yo think I am overdoing it I will step back.

He's just a grumbler. We had the argument about the purpose of this thread way back in the early pages. I for one am pleased it exists. I got a nice AEK II out of it, and played matchmaker for a few boards too, including a steal of an SSK.

I know. That´s ok. I understand you kbdfr. I envy you Halvar for your SSK steal. THAT´s a rare catch !!
