Previous thread: >>60276990

>> No.60309462

the keys that not all keycap sets include are the 1u right alt, fn, right ctrl, and 1.75u right shift.

also the right hand side del, pageup, pagedn, end, but if you're not too picky about the rows or if you get blank keycaps or if you get keycaps in an unsculpted profile they won't be a problem.

these sets include the 1.75u right shift and the del, pageup, pagedn, end in the correct rows (the normal home key is already in the correct row):

(also has colored 1u bottom row keys as optional extras)


they also include the 5.5u spacebar which fits noppoo choc mini (see >>60277227 >>60277248) but drevo gramr uses a normal 6.25u spacebar which pretty much all keycap sets include

They really are reddit switches, as is this whole hobby. Professionals have typed away for years before gamers and hipsters rediscovered mechanical keyboards and started special-snowflakeing every miniscule detail while pretending it matters.

There are regular ass people out there who type a lot better than you. They often don't give a flying fuck about what they're using and if they do care, their wishlist does not include obscure modified switches which somehow invariably end up in rooms filled with anime figurines or lying in the grass being photomodels for vapid fucking cunts who think showing off their purchases online is a legitimate hobby.

i have a board with matias quiet click in them and i like them, but its still not very tactile. it may sound like blasphemy but i like the almost binary action on cheaper keyboards. there is resistance til you apply enough pressure and then you get very little travel and you know immediately that the key has been pressed.

Currently using das keyboard model s ultimate with cherry mx browns. Bezzles could be smaller and level with the underside of the keys to make it easier to clean, and the numpad is getting in the way of my mouse placement.

You're talking like there's something inherently "proper" to cherries. I've tried one of the newer Razer keyboards that feature their own Kalih made switches and liked it better than any common cherry offering.

I've got an old Chicony with ancient cherry blues that I like better than what they are like now. They are slightly lighter with less stubborn actuation. Some would swear by that, but if it didn't say "cherry" on the switch, they'd pretend it's a bad thing.

Funny you should post that, I mentioned my own several posts back. I'm assuming this is the KB-5191. This one is a kinder surprise deal where you never know which switches you're gonna get. Some indeed came with blues, like yours and mine.

Yes, they will be compatible with modern keycaps. However, you can't just order a modern ANSI set and call it a day. With this layout, you'll have two problems:

Ctrl and Alt are 1.5 sized, as opposed to the modern ANSI 1.25.

Big ass enter key -- just forget finding a keycap for this. However, you can get a modern 2.25 enter and put a dummy 1.5 above it so there's no unsightly hole.

There is a tactile bump in brown switches, no matter how much you dislike them, and there is obviously no sand or grittiness inside a greased, molded plastic assembly. It's impossible.

You're not even talking about the same manufacturer either, he's talking about Gateron and you're vomiting stale Cherry memes.

Don't be obtuse.

So the room-mate I used to have, who used blue switches, didn't annoy me all day long, through two closed doors?

And the MX Blue Razor I had for a week and a half, which drove me to get rid of it after trying to be sneaky in first person shooters, wasn't annoying to me personally?

The threads here are business as usual, I'm doing fine, going to have copious amounts of time on my hands in the coming months, so you can expect to see some more custom boards.

Also in the process of making this board, it's going to be a birthday present, but I still have some time. Going to have a laser-cut and laser-etched metal plate on the top, a wooden centerpiece for the case, and a wooden bottom plate, possibly with another metal plate on the bottom.

Don't poke that color wheel at me. The pristine plastic of the keycaps is at odds with the rust. If he really wanted rust to work, he should have done it in the context of one of those obnoxious steampunk fake typewriter keyboards. But then he'd have a fake steampunk typewriter.

If you have to use rust for decoration purposes, it should be used as accent only, in combination with wood and metal.

pbt is more resistant to wear than abs

but if you're going all custom you could probably figure out a nice design with metal instead of plastic

>> No.60326824

But a case is big and wont get repeated fingers typing on them so it is less likely to wear than keycaps would.
the reason why topre board come with abs spacebars is because pbt warps faster so its faster and easier (and cheaper ofc) to produce (matias made some good bucks out of this). if you want my advice on making a case out of pbt, take lots of time dont rush and try to keep it in shape till its cooled and solid or do it in

I know its more resistant and will get that ugly shine less fast its just less convenient to make for what its worth imo

Any heterosexual wise can help me with this?
I have a mechanical keyboard AULA SI-2012 (my keyboard has 87 keys, without leds, and is style ISO), and I would like to change their keycaps for keycaps kind classic, you know, white keys with black characters, to be more specific, I'm looking keycaps the most related with a Compaq SK-2800 (I love those keycaps)


Anyway, someone can recommend to me web pages to buy cheap keycaps (not translucent) the most related with this criterion?
my actual budget is $50 dollars. I already was surfing on a lot web pages, searching, and I found this:

OEM profile ANSI 87 (TKL) Top printedPBT Keycap for Cherry switch

Cherry profile TKL(87 keys) Top printedPBT Keycap for Cherry switch

Now, these are my questions:

1. That's a good price?
2. I should to buy Cherry profile or OEM profile?
3. Someone has a pciture of those keycaps but with an angle different like this one?:
4. If I buy those keycaps, I will have conflict with another keys than "ENTER" and "\|", I mean, I can't just put all the new keycaps and just keep those two keycaps from my original set of keyboard?
5.Someone has experience about shipping costs buying from Taiwan? I send an email to doyustudio, and they told me that the shipping cost will be around $8 dollars, that's a good price? I will not need to pay anything else?
6. Someone can tell me what kind of profile of keycaps has my AULA SI-2012?

You can get keycaps that look like the ones you want from a used G80-3000 with lasered PBT keycaps.

Friendly reminder that 75% is the best layout.

Avoid Noppo choc mini with Noppoo switches though, they chatter horribly. I'm replacing my $90 imported choc mini with a fucking $40 drevo because of this.

What keycap set do you guys think will look nice on a board that looks just like pic related but has a black bezel?

What is a good mechanical replacement for the k120 Logitech keyboard?

I absolutely adore it's design, size, keystriking everything. But every mechanical keyboard I've looked into is absolutely shit tier. Some for "gaming" don't even have motherfucking numpads.

i hope that is the only change. i was reading what he was saying about it, and it sounded like he might move away from the simple grid layout with it.
