well g20 isn't as common so they are very expensive.
A blank 60% set will cost you 46 bucks, while a dye-sub set will cost you 70 bucks. At least they're PBT and you can pick your own colors. The chinks haven't cloned them yet, but I heard vortex is working on some knockoffs

>> No.63807264

$46 isn't too bad. I often see prices for weird custom sets from GMK that end up over $100, so I considered reasonable sets like tai-hao to be more in the minority. I might end up picking up a blank set of g20 then. The only concern I have is that I have a $30+ cable with a coil in it that was made to match the godspeed set. I got it before they dropped a miami cable, since it roughly matches the miami. So now I don't know if I should go with something to match the cable or not. They don't have previews for every color, which sucks. I'd probably want a light blue or light pink color. I may just play it safe and get black. I found where they show plastic colors, but I can't find either of the blues that g20 comes in on there. I see a good pink and blue among the red/blue, but not ones that are a choice for the g20.

Yeah see, they do. Stepped caps lock switches are put at the 1.25u position instead of the 1.75u, so the cap is a 1.25u cap with a 0.5u sunken extension rather than a modified 1.75u cap. See picture, 1.25u key vs stepped caps vs 1.75u key.

Most people who use that as an argument against Ms haven't used neither an F nor a well boltmodded M. You will find that a boltmodded M (or an M with all of its rivets still holding) feels very crisp (though, admittedly, still not QUITE as crisp as an F). The only real disadvantage of the M is the 2KRO, compared to the Fs NKRO. But then again, most chink boards aren't MUCH better, with 4 or 6KRO.

The case it's a little low for cherry keycaps.OEM's just barely clear the case, you can still see the switches

Leopold FC750R with cherry brown, Matias mini, or kbdfans 80 with Matias switches?

I like the look of the two tone grey Leopold most but would prefer Alp like tactile switches.

Are you aware of the key chatter problems with matias switches? That's why I didn't buy one.
I just bought a leopold from the same line as the fc750r and the quality is out of this world. There were things that were not advestised on the listing that are my favorite parts.
So the keycaps not only have this very nice course texture but the whole chassis has the same one.
Inside the chassis there is sound dampening and I thought it was a meme but comparing to videos of the same switch(clear) it really does noticeably lower the pitch of the switches.
Three way cable routing on the bottom.
5 dip switches including the only one that matters, l ctrl with capslock.
I'd get the leopold unless you know how to solder/desolder.
Also don't get those ugly green ones that just came in stock on mk.com
also the fc980m has a full num pad but is only 1u wider than a tkl.
also im a fat retard

How do you like mx silvers, and how overpriced are they?

>getting a bunch of machining tools for my workshop
will you send me pictures of all your beautiful machines if I give you my contact information?

I haven't been up to very much related to mechanical keyboards since I haven't been up to very much at all. Mainly trying to maintain a regular sleep/wake cycle while slowly learning how to human.
Other than that, there's a hackerspace with laser-cutters and all kinds of 3D printers and other tools and machines close to where I live now. The laser-cutters are great for cutting keyboard cases of any size you'd want to make a keyboard, so I'll probably be making a lot of keyboards with acrylic cases once I'm up and running again. Got a range of keyboard-things that I want to try out.

Jup, aware of those. Was tending to the Leopold as well, just looks much more complete. I'm looking at the tkl variant of yours. Switching caps and ctrl is nice, I typically map caps to ctrl as modifier and Esc when pressed.

Which switches did you get? Not sure if clears are too heavy for typing at work, tending to brown.

Fun to fuck around with cheap domain names for a year. I had IWannaFuckThatRobot.tech for a year for $0.89. I lost it last week though.

Thanks for posting this board. I was already planning on buiilding a board with either box pale blues, or the two new variants with the thicker clickbar and I wasn't sure how to mount the leds in there.
