I just hooked up my filco cable. I think I can sit on the other side of town with how long the cable is xD. Great work as always, mistakemistakemistakemistake <3.

No Prob! Enjoy :)

How much would shipping be for a standard 6ft cable to Australia, if you don't mind me asking?

Depends on how many cables and the weight. But a single standard cable now only adds a few bucks. It used to be more, but I'm making a few changes.

i still need to receive mine though. hope its not lost in the mail. >_>


Edit: I got my cable today. Thanks Mimic. absolutely the cable is gorgeous. <3

awesome, glad everything is ok :)

Also, whoever hasn't received cables yet, they all ship tomorrow YAYYYYYYY. Below are just a few I decided to iphone pic it up before I shipped.

Cable came in today and it looks fantastic!  You were right Mimic, the dark stainless matches perfectly with the iMac and my KBT Pure CNC :-*

I posted a few closeups on my Flickr Stream, but below is a closeup.

That looks awesome! Enjoy :)

Impressive how long he's kept it going without any lapses until now.  Especially considering nearly 100% of orders were custom and never seemed to stop.

Hey all, I'm thinking I should be back up and running again sometime this month. On my final batch of 8 that shipped out had some problems. I'm not too sure if it had to do with the way I shipped or the postage change.. But once I get it all worked out, I'll let you all know!  Thanks all!

If you're lucky enough to receive them (without the postal services stealing them) please treasure them.

The cables this guy makes are really superb, worth every cent because he is a perfectionist.  I will always buy from a perfectionist because they go further when it comes to quality and finish.

Any keyboard is elevated to a higher plain of Design Excellence with one of his cables attached to which any 'moron' out there will not ever know anything about.  But for geekhackers we know all about the finished product and we treasure cables as much as any key-caps.

I do not think you need to send MiMiC a Filco cable in order for him to make you one. :D

He knows the length of the inside cable (he's the MacGyver of the keyboard cable world) plus he buys heaps of Filco internal connectors.  I have never received any Filco cables.......yet, but the ones who have already got them should let you know how they fit.  You would have to open up your Filco to get at the back of the PCB for that connector replacement yourself.

I remembered that (dare I mention his name) 'Ripster' did a photo shoot showing how he had taken apart his Filco for a cable replacement.

I meant does mimic make filco cables that have the white plug as shown in the youtube video so all I have to do is unplug the stock one and plug in the custom one? I want a mini usb plug on the case like the poker so I can detach the usb cable at will.

heya, the filco cables I sell already have the molex connector on. so, all you do is open the keyboard casing, unplug the existing cable, and plug in the new one.

They fit perfectly. Its either the same thickness as the cable that comes with the board or a bit thicker but it fits in the cable routing.
