Hey tj - do you do detachable Filco cables or no?

I do indeed do them.

Do you guys do WASD cables as well? Not sure what the connector is but I can send you a better picture next week.
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

I can.  The pricing is a little higher as the parts are more expensive, so it'd add $5 to any order.  Also I can only do male to male or male to female usb a 3.0.

Male to Male is what I am looking for. I need a longer cable for my USB monitor so I'd need something like this in 1.5 to 2 meters. So 6 feet would be fine.


Would I need to PM you with my order?

Do you make new SDL connectors (from TE connectivity, I think onlinecomponents still stocks them) or reuse the vintage ones on model M cables ?

I reuse vintage and orihalcon (sp?) ones.  I haven't wanted to invest in the proper crimping tool and having the set up for the in plug controller/translater things

Hi there,

I was wondering if you warranty your work at all? I ordered 3 cables back in January and upon receipt the two mini usb cables worked perfectly, but the micro usb cable hasn't worked from the day I got it. Any chance on a swap?

Received my cables today! 

58092-0

One thing I noticed is the mini-USB housing is quite tall.  On my QFR it fits, but at a slight angle.  I can't think of any other keyboard case where this would be a problem.

Hey mimic,

I received my HHKB a little while ago and was thinking about picking up a custom usb cable for this beauty. Is it possible to get a 90° angle connector? Is it possible for the connector to be white?

Yes to right angle, no to white.  I can put white heatshrink on it, but it wouldn't look great.

Yes and you write it in the comments field with sleeve choice.

TJ,

Got my black & tan cable yesterday. Thanks it looks great.  I just ordered two more.  B-SPEC and Gunmetal.

You mentioned to me before that you have the stress relief things for the little Filco detachable cable (where one end is the Filco connection and the other is a female mini USB). 

Do those cost the same amount as a whole 6ft cable?

Yep, the difference in my cost between a 6 inch and 6 foot cable is like a dollar, so it's less complicated to just say "up to 6ft".

Okay got ya.

Also after looking at some of the cables you have made with the stress relief it looks like you put it on the opposite way I have seen others implement it.  It looks like you have the fat round end of the
relief on the end that is facing away from the case.  What keeps it in place?  It would seem like it would need to facing the other way.

I don't have a filco to test but my thought was the pressure of the closed case.  I haven't had anyone tell me it doesn't work yet, but I don't mind altering the process either.

Also, on filco stuff, the detachable adapter, full one piece and two piece replacements all cost the same $21.  So it's not like you have to buy two cables for a set up.  For a limited time after orders, I'll turn previously ordered cables to filco replacements and two pieces as well.

So if I buy a little detachable adapter cable with stress relief it will also come with a standard mini USB to USB A cable for the cost of $21 ?

This is the way the stress relief was implemented on a Ninja I bought a few weeks ago


That is why I said I have never seen it turned around like how you have it, but if your method works just as good I would much rather not have that much of the stress relief hanging out the back.

tjcaustin,

Cables are on my mind again. Some white MDPC from you sounds good :)

Earlier I asked about white connectors and you said that you could use heat shrink but it wouldn't look great. Is there any way to see what that would look like (I have seen some from other cable makers and they seem ok).

I should learn to not let my personal preferences color my opinion on this. Makes me look goofy.

is how it would look

You can custom order whatever length you want, but decreasing the size doesn't drastically decrease the price as I recall.

Can you do Displayport/thunderbolt to DVI(male) or Displayport/thunderbolt to HDMI(female)? I don't want to buy an Apple cable, because I like your work and would rather support you.  LThanks in advance!

I already mailed and hopefully it's not gonna take another 4 weeks to replace this... I wanna use my GON which is supposed to arrive next week or so.

I sent you an email to discuss things further.

hi I didn't really read most of the thread, sorry - but is there any chance you have anything ready to ship (to Sweden)? :)
