New Unicomp for work, so I can give my IBM Model M that I've been using for a few years some rest.
103 key configuration with some custom keycaps and a slightly modified layout.

... and it lives! :)

(where the right shift is shifted to the left :P )

Thanks! @matt3o :) It's the lesser evil in this case, the only "sane" solution to have both arrows and a non-swearable right shift in a 60% format.

The nice thing is, as you know it, with QMK I can make that right shift a dual-role key and still have "?/" there :) (EDIT: done and works wonderfully)

yeah I've been there. I know what you mean. I ended up with this layout. The core part is almost 60% :)

There's another way.

…to lose your mind.

I’m not against alt layouts, but if you’re going to make the jump, you might as well leave QWERTY behind.

It's an interesting idea, treating the board as "split" to cram all the other important keys to the middle; but personally I couldn't use that layout.

It's a real physical layout available on factory-made hardware (JIS Topre Realforce).

The only change is the wide mod: shifting all right-hand symbols two columns to the right, which increases hand separation and makes right-side modifiers easier to use. This is vastly superior to the standard layout.

It occurred to me that I could put a HHKB-like diamond-shaped arrow cluster in the middle.

Yes, I use it with Colemak, but that doesn't matter in this context. BTW QWERTY is much better for compatibility with existing hotkey schemes, which is arguably more important than typing to most people.

Where did ‘ and “ go?

Oh, secondary corner legends on a couple of alphas. I wouldn’t tuck those away. Much more common than many characters.

See the right-hand home row. I use them on a layer. This means I don't have to move my hand (or worse: pinkie) at all. Highly recommended.

(Of course, that's for the standard US layout and ASCII symbols; otherwise, AltGraph would be used anyways.)

Made this for myself. Unfortunately both parts of the the 3D printed plate shrunk somewhat and left a weird gap in the middle of the board. I will try to print plates in more pieces to mitigate this issue.
I did NOT harvest the switches, they are leftovers from a Dell AT101W when I replaced them, they were in bad condition but are clean now.

Kinda tempted to put ODROID in there and make sudo "media server" out of this. Maybe some audio passtrough for headphones, mic. Plus some usb hub and card reader somewhere for easy access. Hmmm.

Crappy pictures as always so sorry for that :lol:

My recent acquisition made me want to take some pictures of it on a nice keyboard. Here is my Mech27 v2, with 3225SAT alphas combined with 3000SAU mods. The perfect match considering the main legends are the normal US ANSI ones. Very happy about this combo :D

I wasn't sure what i'd think of the MDA profile, but I figured since the "big bone" set had a 5.5u spacebar that fits the NIZ 84 keyboard, I figured I'd give the profile a shot.

The MDA caps are about the same height as enjoyPBT caps. I like the flat sculpted profile, but some keys are not consistent in their profile. The enter, backspace, and the larger shift keys are slightly higher profile that other keys in their perspective rows, while other mods like the tab, capslock, and 1.75u shift are the correct/same profile as the rest of the row.

edit: profile of the caps seemed off because of the NIZ mx/topre sliders. Caps on a board with cherry stabs and mx switches, all is level. Maybe it's the newness of the profile, but MDA is rather nice to type on. Not better than cherry profile, but different in a good way.

The convex bottom row and the tall F row keys feel great, and look okay. For whatever reason, on the standard 1.5u control keys, they spelled it "contrl," so I doubt I'll be using this set on any 1.5 boards. I'll probably just let the caps live on the NIZ board.

edit: NIZ board is kind of blah compared to typing on my LZ ergo...

Cherry knew dyesubs, all right! They’re some of the best looking, best workday caps ever. Not just lookers but performers too.

In the middle?

I must admit I'm still at zero Topre artisans, or IBM for that matter. Fancy caps are one of the few things keeping me MX adjacent.

I initially put it on escape, but had some divine inspiration telling me that it looked like a gold tooth and that this is the way to solidify that look. Don't worry, it'll go back on escape soon-ish.

Technically an OG Cherry JP Dyesub set... these are Hirose JP Dyesub keycaps!

It's a beaut.
