long story short I used the wrong dye. I tried RIT liquid instead of the iDye poly packs (the former only sort of work on PBT, the latter works perfectly). Those were meant to be the old 70's sunburst orange yellow brown and look how shite it turned out.

I wish Unicomp was selling caps with colored legends when I was buying mine, but I just can't justify the expense, especially with how I just bought a set of enjoypbt with purple legends for a different KB. I'm a big sucker for colored legends; I just like how it adds color in a more subtle fashion while the rest of the keyboard can keep looking professional. In any case, it's great to be American now that Unicomp has started upping their cap offerings.

if you are an adventurous type, get some iDye poly from a joann's fabric near you (about 2.50 a pack) and dye them youself. the RIT liquid will keep the legends but you'll need to boil the keys forever (PBT wont warp in boiling at least per personal experience, i boiled PBT for an hour straight with no warping) and you'll need to add varying degrees of a solvent to get the dye to hold better.

>he has trouble hitting a key that is along the edge of the case
Only key sacrificed was half of the backspace, which was not because of the ISO enter but instead bec of the ¥ key.
ANSI enter is much easier to hit accidentally when hitting "]" or "\". ISO has to be intentionally hit since it's out of the way of the typing position.

so my dads birthday is coming up this weekend and i was looking to buy him a mechanical keyboard because the one he has now is just cancer and he does a lot of word editing.
i just recently got mine and he mentioned tonight how much he loved his old model-m keyboard.

basically here's what he needs:
-doesn't have to be cherry mx, kailh switches are fine
-obviously he doesn't need a gaming keyboard so any features dedicated to gaming are null
-100$ cad maximum
-something i can find in stores relatively easily
-he probably doesn't care if its loud, so blue switches are fine.
-backlighting etc is just a bonus.

i have an azio mgk1 that i really love so i was thinking of getting him one but i'd like to hear other alternatives too.

Is filco still a good keyboard? I've had mine with brown switches and had it for 7 years. Still works good and none of the keys I mash for gaming hasn't worn out but I want to try linear switches and looking at leopold. What are some good brands with very basic design and very durable with good build quality?

>> No.60688655

For some strange reason my Filco's print screen key is taller than both the scroll lock and pause keys, i really like it though since you barely need those other 2 keys

Hey, I´m currently using a Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2014 and since a few weeks some switches activate twice when pressing them, which makes typing a real pain. Can this be fixed by a proper cleaning or is it fucked and i should get something with cherry mx switches?

I can't decide between a noppoo choc mini and the drevo gramr. Gonna go with brown switches on either, anyone have any experience as to which is the better quality board? I would expect the better quality one to be the choc mini but I hear it has issues with debouncing?

What is so good about 60% keyboards? I feel like the arrow keys are important and for the god life of me I cannot justify buying a 60% keyboard. Who exactly are they build for?

>> No.60694733

For me it's the ergonomics and extra desk space. Having the keyboard positioned center to your body helps a lot. Also clears a lot of room for your desk and mouse. I play a lot of games and I never bump into my keyboard with a %60, but with a full keyboard I'm bumping into that shit constantly.

It's also weird at first to have the arrow keys under a layer, but you get used to it and it's not bad at all. I only keep a keyboard with arrow keys around for games that use them for primary movement, like touhou.

It probably has something to do with how I type combined with those letters' frequencies. My ring finger has no dexterity, so I hit the "s" with my middle finger and the "c" with my index finger in such a way that my fingernail often makes contact with those keycaps. Combine that with those letters also being very common and not only are those letters wearing off, but I get gouges in the tops of the keys as well. There are other keys on my keyboard that don't ever see my fingernail, though, like "w" and "e," which are wearing down as well.

The keycaps Filco uses are pretty low quality, so if you really used yours for 7 years and you're really not getting any wear to the keycaps, then you aren't typing enough.

>> No.60699693

The chink clones are like 40-70 bucks depending on what you want. Custom sets will cost more, and the price will come down overtime since SP sold their old toolings to the chinks. Vortex has SP DSA sets coming soon.

Got some cheap chink PBT DSA blanks for my Anne Pro. Was a bit worried about not finding my way without the F and J bumps, but the different shape feels so good and actually a lot better.

Can anyone recommend another nice chink PBT set that doesn't have issues with backlight bleed? Need one for my TKL. I like the EnjoyPBT sets, but they're way too expensive at over $80. There's a Dolch set on AliExpress that looks nice, but I'm worried about the lighter keys having some bleed.

There's nothing ergonomic about the ortho layout, and the Planck creator has said so in the past. The advantages are solely in complete programmability and a the full set of bottom row keys.
It does look really nice, however.

Speaking of ergonomics, has there ever been an attempt at a variable weight cherry board? I know Topre has a couple, and the worst it would require is some tedious replacing of springs.
