How is the quality for Unicomp? Do they use the same tech as IBM Model M or is the original still best

that's the problem, they use the same exact tooling. so it hasn't been updated in over 20 years

They're about the same quality as the 90's Lexmark IBM M's, which makes sense because it's the same factory.

I'm finally planning on building my first board this summer. Any recs for a good soldering iron, desoldering pump and actual solder to use?
This one is the one I'm looking at for the iron. Do I need to buy any extra tips for it?

>> No.65559232

I have the same iron, it's pretty good. For soldering switches you won't need anything besides the standard chisel tip. If you don't mind spending the extra dosh, get an FR300 for the desoldering iron. Makes things far easier and cleaner. As for solder I use some kester 63/37 rosin core/noclean.

Holy crap the FR300 is 400 leaf bucks. I could really use it but it's way out of my budget sadly. I got rec'd this desoldering pump, not sure if it's good:

>> No.65559285

I think I paid around 360 syrupbux for mine off ebay (just gotta make sure the listing is for 120V input voltage). That said a solder sucker like that should also work fine. If you ever plan on desoldering a bunch of shit in the future, the FR300 will be worth it.

>> No.65559335

Thank anon. Should I get some desoldering wick too just in case? Or is the pump good enough?

>> No.65559352

I found desoldering braid to just be a pain in the ass to be honest. It does work, but whether or not the pin will actually be free or still stuck to the pad with a bit of solder is a bit of a crapshoot in my experience.

>> No.65559382

Ok, good to know. I just have a last question before I plan the orders for my build. I'm gonna use the kbd75 pcb and I want to get genuine cherry stabilizers for them. Would I need to solder them in as well? Or is better to use the gmk screw in stabilizers instead? I actually am not too familiar with the differences between plate, pcb and screw in stabs.

>> No.65559413

Cherry stabs either clip into the plate or the PCB itself. All the custom boards I've seen have plates compatible with PCB mount cherry stabs, so no point in getting the plate mount ones really. There are also PCB mount ones that screw down, but I haven't really seen them aside from those custom made transparent stabs.

Original anon trying to quiet keys here. It seems like there are two loud sounds: one is bottoming out, the other is when you let the keys go and they slap back to their top position. The O-rings might help the bottoming out, but not the sound of it going back to the top? Returning to top is pretty loud...

Ya, but not with my desired switches.
And I don't really solder.

>> No.65561979

Yeah, that doesn't go away. It reduces slightly because there is less travel for it to accelerate back to the top, but in the end it doesn't make much of a difference.

Gateron browns are cheaper, smoother, slightly heavier, and more tactile. The tactile bump in cherry clears is barely noticable and just sort of makes the keys feel cheap and wobbly.

But then again, plenty of people don't give a shit. If you like them, then you shouldn't need /mkg/'s approval.

So my friend is looking to get a highly customizable keyboard with extra macro keys on it.
So far, he's really looking at the corsair k95 just for the extra macro keys.

He wants to get a k95, replace the switches with some silent blacks, new keycaps, and remove the LEDs. (he's going for silence and typing feel over aesthetics, so he doesn't mind the corsair board looking kinda gaudy by default)

Would a keyboard like a k95 work without LEDs installed? and if so, would it cause any errors with the software since there's nothing for it to control?

If he's goes the corsair route he's gonna end up spending 200 bucks on top of whatever the keyboard costs because corsair is retarded. At around that price point he can build a fully custom keyboard of his own design.
Have him build a keyboard with

Just let him know the more elaborate he makes the keyboard the more expensive it will be to make.

How exactly? I thought it was just so you could spit out a plate design.

You use the json layout file from that on the QMK website to get the key positions and names. Then you do the matrix and pin/layer assignments there and even compile the firmware all nice and neat.

>> No.65568167

Interdasting. How hard is it to make a new matrix for a split board though? Just glancing through the qmk documentation and it seems like it assumes you're just building a non split board with a single teensy or some other controller.

He wants quick to use macros without having to go through function layers
There's plenty of thick pbt chink keycap sets that fit that bottom row as well as I think that the b doubleshot vortex 126key set has extras that'll fit that bottom row.
He also said he's more than willing to desolder and solder in his own switches
He's not strapped for cash, and he's willing to spend extra because his wants are niche. And like I said, there's lots of used, cheap Corsair boards in our area.
Also like, $50 in switches + $30-$40 caps = $200 on top of the already reduced price keyboard?

you register with your phone number (nobody but people who already have your phone number can see it, for everyone else you're just a user with a username). It's not as anonymous as 4chan since you're a distinct user, but beyond that nobody has any information about you beyond what you give them.

he and I both have good soldering stations and supplies
he doesn't care too much if the extra keys on the side have PBT caps on them since he's not going to be mashing down on them on a regular basis, and even if he did, he said he'd just get one of those $10 blank sets from ebay.

As far as the LEDs go, since they're not through-hole, he can just turn them off and no even bother with them

so all in, $50 for 130 switches from KBDfans, $30 for some vortex PBT caps (possibly less if there's anything decent on ali), $11 (optional) for blank caps.
IDK where you're getting $200 from, senpai.

MX browns are overhated really, not dramatically tactile but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing
MX green, blue and especially white are dogshit
Non‐retooled MX linears (gray, nature white) are dogshit
MX clear is good
Zealio and other MX Clear clones are massively overhyped, they are not very significantly better than ergo clears.
Gateron linears are excellent stock and a fantastic value in light of that
Box thick click switches deserve the hype and are head and shoulders above the next best Cherry compatible clicky switch (modded included)
Yes, mods are the only way to get the very best linear/tactile switches
Topre is dramatically overrated, they are a very weakly tactile rubber dome. A HHKB is some of the worst value in the game right now. I have not tried BKE clone domes though.
Buckling Spring is strangely and unpleasantly stiff, and yes Model F > Model M in feeling and sound. Overall a decent switch, however.
Blue alps is very good but overhyped, amber alps is better as far as that goes. Brown alps and alps plate spring are superb.
Beamspring does deserve the hype, it is excellent
