You know that since I'm a very small operation I can't store large rolls of metal. Most the scrap I get I use to make small things to patch up stuff.

Also the biggest problem would be cooling the thing. Right now I just use a lot of WD40 and if I'm gonna be milling a large chunk of aluminum I need to get a dedicated coolant system which is also another grand

What's the point of "le_haxxor_60%" keyboard? Is it designed for some kind of text editor like vi or emacs or operating/computer system other than ibm pc compatibles?

Where are the function keys? Thinkpad users complain about them and actually need them for example. Key combinations are uncomfortable.

Where are the arrow keys? How do i move my coursor or play pacman? Okay, you say muh "homerow", but i see no trackpoint too.

Vintage cherries are considered superior to modern day cherries since they're far smoother than the newer ones.

Cherry really should invest in some new molds. They're top of the game, but gateron does a better job at being smooth, which is the most noticeable part compared to their cherry counterparts.

I believe that stencil fonts are easier to doubleshot, but I don't believe that that's their primary reason for choosing a non-standard font. Look at these ones, they're cheap, they're not stencil, and they're still using some retarded hacker font.

the ones in my original post are also shine-through and double shot, but they have an ugly font. I said they had a dumb 'hacker font' and anon replied stating that it was just a stencil font for ease of manufacturing, not a 'hacker font.' Then I showed that keycap set, which is also shine through and cheap, but is not a stencil font. Therefore I still believe that retarded stencil fonts and the like are just a result of catering to 12 year olds.

I think I'm going to get the E-Element keyboard

I know there's a cheaper version that's not hot-swappable, but that cheaper version for whatever reason has a different font that I dont' like and it will cost more to buy an extra keycap set than to just buy the upgraded version with the font that I like.

Is there a glaring reason to not get this keyboard?

I didn't mean to say that the 2nd font was pretty, I meant to say it was non-stencil. If it's non stencil, doubleshot, and cheap, then that means that stencil fonts are not a necessity for cheap chink brands with double shot keycaps.

However, I don't even know if the 2nd example is really doubleshot. I think they can use the other processes to get shinethrough keys, and it doesn't say on the link.

I'm not trying to pit against you or anything, I'm just still convinced that stencil fonts are used just for the aesthetics of the keyboard, and that certain group of aesthetics is reaching out towards 12-year-olds.

I don't think you need it for typing, since you won't be using large combinations of buttons. But I think someone told me that the way the keyboard or computer works is that if the signals come in too close together then they'll be considered overlapping and can get ignored if you only have 2KRO.

For games it definitely matters, because you'll be using button combinations all the time

But it sucks to miss out on brand new buckling springs with excellent customer service for only $84

I do. Buckling springs ping as fuck, alps have some nice switches, but most of them are too wobbly or IMO too tactile -although I never tested blues or oranges yet. Also, travel distance is not as big as I like.
Topres are overpriced garbage. Omrons are way to tactile, and modern omrons (logitech orion someshit) are just like cherry browns, but worse. Space invaders are scratchy, not more tactile than browns and really prone to dust.

Lubed cherry clears, zealios, gateron tactile clears on the other hand feel pretty nice. Gateron greens and zealistotles/aristotlerons are also pretty nice.


There is also the keycap issue, even if I find the perfect switch, if it does not have decent thick cherry profile caps, it wont matter.

It feels worse then a rubber dome. I have an old wayne terminal that uses something similar

How does something feel worse than rubber domes?

Any linear switch or MX Browns.

I'd say it's worth at least 10$ just for the layout and look, even if it's not mechanical. Does it click when you press it?

I think it might be the age, but it feels like you are typing on a sponge. There is no tactile feedback what so ever, which even rubber domes have. Luckily the keyboard beeps every time a switch actuates. Also it has some of the nicest key caps I've ever seen in my life. They are over 30 years old and when I first found it they were covered with 10 years of dust and grease, but they still look brand new and feel great

Anyone had any experience with this?

No idea. I do have an old IBM model M and its lots of fun. No issues with PS/2 or faulty rivets. I got it of ebay for $65. I hear these have worse plunger quality, but again I don't know.

Most likely, yes. It looks like a Keytronic.

I bought one to use as spare parts if any of my model m's needed new springs or caps, they feel very similar to a real model m but aren't built nearly as well.

I might be spewing bullshit here, but I think there's high chance this is mechanical, since the layout is so old
