Then returned it to me because it wasn't working properly after he broke it. But it's whatever, I'll just fix it and keep it and not try to sell it again I guess.

My Editware is a VPE instead of DPE so that might be an indication of switch differences for future reference.

That Abekas has these switches:

Looks like M8 to me:

I need an M2 spacebar, by the way… One of mine got smashed in shipping. Yet to test the rest of the board.

That's the same "Dolch" I linked. :?

@Blaise Wow, quite the horror story. I luckily haven't have to deal with those kinda buyers yet. Hope you can fix it!
Mu is right about the Abekas, the keycaps are cool, I didnt even notice the LED cutout when I was on my phone.

Do you know if the spacebar from the rubberdome version works on it? I know the rubber dome versions can be found quite a bit cheaper than the mechanical ones. Unicomp also has replacements even though unfortunately they are a different profile.

the link was already posted some hours ago :) they are probably MX mount, but I dont see any use of these random selection of number keycaps, if it were a full alpha set I would buy it immediately

Ah yes I see the post now from gogusrl. Anyway I think they could make a nice keypad. And I don't come across high profile double-shot PBT keycaps every day :D (that is, if they really are PBT)

Very interesting that Inet analyser, I never knew they made also portable systems, I have worked with the big enterprise ones, very powerful piece of hardware...

Am I right in thinking that that is a Cherry board? I did a quick google but I couldn't find much relevant information. Some people talking about Inet keyboards being a dolch rebrands, but this one is probably different as it definitely has a different layout.

Does not look like Cherry to me, but I could be wrong because the photo isn't that great. Compare the arrows on the shifI key and the form of the G.

Blue Alps (Unless they're a clone?) board with a couple of broken switches. Might be a good donor for a smaller KB project.
