I like solid aluminum and the case design. I currently use a numpad in my left hand with much of the keys locked out. 10 keys is enough for me to bind to my Photoshop hotkey needs and swap to a second layer for arrows and more hotkeys as needed while I keep a pen in my right hand. If the Van numpad thing didn't look so plain I would've gone for that, but this has come up.

How do those feel. The only hall effect switch I tried was on some old cash register from like the 80s. It was my first linear switch and since there was no tactile feedback it made a beep every time the switch actuated. Those keycaps tho were supper sexy. Even though they were covered in dirt and dust they still looked brand new.

Incredibly smooth press. Linear. And the caps are so nice, somehow still in perfect shape and the things got like ten years on me. Maybe more, I forget how old it is. As you can probably tell, it can't hook up to anything currently, and hall effect boards are a pita to make work since there's no physical switching.

Model M buckling springs are heavier then model Fs and are still in production so they are easy to find. Their website has more options, but you can also buy them from amazon

https://www.amazon.com/s?me=A2GLVWCFA1U5MG&merchant=A2GLVWCFA1U5MG&qid=1478087739

Now if you want the clackiest switch, then that goes to the Omron amber which are even louder and more tactile then buckling springs, but those are really hard to find. Another option for some heavy switches would be any of the old complicated alps. Blues are the heaviest of them all, but those are hard to find.

This one, like many of the RF series, is variable at 30, 45, 55. I heard that Ripster tested it and its more like 35 than 30 but I don't feel like going on Reddit now.
https://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=topre_keyboards,rf104&pid=aeax0100

https://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=topre_keyboards,rftenkeyless&pid=rf_se18t0
This one's pretty uncommon at 55g. It's what you think the Novatouch is at but it's heavier.
Bestwiki tells the weights and other stuff about RF boards, you should check it out.
https://deskthority.net/wiki/Topre_Realforce
>Do O rings or landing pads or anything help make it more tactile?
O rings reduce travel distance among other things. I think the Novatouch comes with it, so you can see if you prefer them. O-rings come in different hardnesses and thicknesses.

>>57779995
well if you want to do it incrementally then you could start be deciding what layout you want. 60% is the easiest since it has the most options and the parts are readily available, but if you want full size you have to be patient. Gon sells some parts, but you have to wait about a year before he gets them to you. Then the metal case and plate will take about another 2, but maybe you could be lucky and he could ship it to you in about 4 months. If you think waiting a few years is too long then you could wait for a group buy to sell some kits, but you have to be quick since they only last a couple weeks and come once every few years. The hardest parts to get are the case and plate, but you could just make it out of wood or something. Now if you have some soldering skills you could skip the PCB and hand wire the whole thing, then program it using a teensy. Switches and key caps are easy since almost everyone sells them.

My recommendation is to build a gh60 since it is one of the most popular keyboard kits it is also the cheapest. Some people have been creative and built stuff using acrylic or an HHKB, but with alps switches instead of topres. If you can get a metal work shop to make you plates then you can make a truly custom keyboard, but usually they charge a hundred bucks depending on how fancy of a design it is

you don't need a converter for a model M, unless its the terminal ones. Mine uses a ps/2 connector, while the unicomp ones have usb. If you can get a used one for cheap then go for it. You may have to clean it, or worst case scenario the plastic rivets on the inside are rotten so you have to bolt mod it. Bolt modding is just replacing the plastic rivets with bolts.

I'm looking to buy a new mechanical keyboard. Wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

Hey, so it looks like this:
>Budget
Whatever's reasonable for what I want. $150
>Location (continent at least)
US
>Preferred switch type
I like browns
>Layout
ANSI
>Form factor
full
>Backlight
Preferred, RGB unnecessary
>Previous/current keyboard
Logitech G710+

I like media controls. I want something very serviceable/customizeable down to being able to swap out key switches. What fits

>>57778284
I really like this layout. Do they make any backlit 1800s?

>>57778079
Actually I went digging and I like that keyboard a lot. Do they come as a kit or something? I saw some builds. Where could I find the parts to put a keyboard together? I couldn't find anything about it on massdrop and all I could find was an aliexpress listing.

I've only used red and brown and I prefer the browns. I dunno I guess I ought to buy one of those packs and try some out.

>> No.57783239

>>57783098
That means you probably prefer tactile over linear. Browns aren't very tactile though. Gateron browns, gateron tactile clears, zealios, MX clears, and Topres are also tactile but with more pronounced tactile bumps.

Not like the Rama thing is aesthetically much better, with its bloated bezels and overall excessive size

But hey, if you're the type of person who thinks old vintage keyboards with casings near to twice the size of the actual keyboard go ahead, knock yourself out. None of my business how you waste your money.

>> No.57783293

>>57783239
Yeah I do prefer some feedback. I don't necessarily need pronounced feedback. I liked the browns with silencers on them because they're tactile but still light and quiet. If anything else fits that profile I'd be willing to try it.

>> No.57783314

>>57783293
Maybe Gateron Browns. They're like MX browns, but a bit smoother and with a larger tactile bump but still smaller than that of an MX clear or Zealio.

>> No.57783318

>>57783293
Gateron browns are supposed to be exactly that but better made and smoother to use than the Cherry version. Zealios and clears have much more pronounced feedback, so even with low weight springs you probably wouldn't like them.

>> No.57783338

why doesn't other companies than Unicomp make spring-buckle keyboards anymore?
aren't they supposed to be highly sought after?

>> No.57783357

>>57783338
Buckling spring fans are a very vocal minority.
Also a lot of them just buy second-hand originals and modify as necessary instead of buying new from Unicomp.
Also Unicomp can only really do what they do since they bought the original tooling off IBM from what I remember, any other company looking to do it would need to develop their own tooling which ain't cheap.

Currently I'm using cherry reds, but the board only comes in brown and blue. I'm all for trying new switches, and reds are the ONLY ones I've ever used, but which one of the two are "more" similar, if at all?

>> No.57784373

Browns are closer to reds than blues are.

Red = 45g linear switch
Brown = 45g slightly tactile switch
Blue = 50-something g clicky moderately tactile switch
