(Model MF) Remodeling the Model M

Also putting shelf liner material or other damping materials into the case to cut down on resonance.

On the BARREL. Putting it on the flipper will make flipper heavier, changing everything. Also it will unstick pretty quickly from all that vibration and you'll have lots of silicone beads inside your keyboard :)

As for "how's everyone" - I joined the ranks of Facebook 3 weeks ago, trying to drink from bootcamp firehose. CS is proven to be repeatable on $10 off the shelf protoboards, hostside utility still misses the macro editor (firmware has online-updatable macro support, but you need to manually edit binary config files to use it :) )

Ha ha, wow, I got that one wrong. I went back to the original thread, and I see where I went wrong. It's on the underside of the barrel, where the flipper will hit it on the upstroke. Here's the original thread linked for reference:

I can't wait to build my Model MFs with CommonSense controllers. I could edit binary config files, but I'd prefer ASCII files.

I remember you mentioning interviewing places, congrats on the new position!

Great to hear that CS is so well developed. On resumption of the GB, it sounds like the turn around for production of CS would be minimal. Fantastic news.

I know the floss mod, have been using it for a while now. Until the MF goes through, I'll have a go at the silicon mod on my M, though it might be a bit too much on those short flippers. I'll also get some felt to stuff the case, and maybe something for the barrel plate, we'll see. It'll be interesting to see just how damped we can get it.
