I made an offer for 2 boards for $35 and he accepted. Hopefully one of the two comes in good shape. Although I really want them for parts. I would love to throw these clears into a compact board.

Is there a decent space saving pcb mount cherry board that I could use for this mod? The only board that I can think of is the PLU-87.

These are in much better condition than I expected. The switches don't really seem worn, and the keycaps even look pristine. The paint job is good.

I can see this being a very nice beginner's mechanical keyboard, especially for MMO players. full NKRO plus a crapton of extra keys that could be programmed (with stuff like auto hotkey, I would think) to do anything including macros. There are more extra keys on this thing than there are macro keys on a blackwidow.

Call me a pansy but I'm afraid to screw around with the switches in a plate mounted board. I couldn't look at myself in the mirror after ruining a filco. I love my Filco with cherry browns.

I just asked Obook for a quote for a PLU ML-87.

It looks like my boards have shipped out. Hopefully I'll have them soon.

Just got mine in. So my impressions are that it's pretty heavy, though I kinda guessed it would be from looking at force graphs. I'm surprised how subtle the tactile point is, it almost feels linear. I think I heard the tactile point in clears is more similar to browns than they are to blues so does a mx brown feel like a very light clear?

Straight hammering on the keys I have to focus to feel the bump, but all of my keys follow the force graph closely.  The post-bump ramp keeps me from bottoming out the keys, so I'm always riding the bump and actuation point at my normal speed.  Even when tapping on the same key over and over, I don't find myself going very far up the ramp.  If you don't feel it when pressing the key normally, I think there's something wrong (crud in switches perhaps).

Definitely. My G80-8113 had all sorts of crud in the switches. After opening, cleaning and re-greasing them they feel smooth and tactile. One great way to tell if there is crud is if all the keys feel different. Some will be dirtier then others, some have lint in them making them feel soft or fuzzy and other may have dirt in them for a gritty feeling.

Again it's not the lack of a bump I'm commenting on guys, it's how subtle it is compared to mx blues, the same way ppl compare the bump in browns to blues. Or difference I feel in white alps to black alps, even though they're both tactile.

For the record, this is (left to right) about as big as a standard keyboard. In my keyboard tray, it comes to about the same spot on my mousepad as anything else would. I'm not sure why that's such a big deal. It's also got NKRO, unlike probably alot of the things you'd be putting the switches into.

As far as the trackpad/whatever thing, I just didn't plug it in. I hate those things. Especially if it's gonna be that much in the way of the arrow keys.

Anyone in Poland or near wants to buy one or more of these and split the shipping cost? It gets sensible at 5 keyboards, I'd take 2, as a switch source, and I think the seller should agree for something like $8/kb if we take 5;).

I ordered one earlier today. I offered 10 but he countered 15 so I re-countered with $12 and he accepted. So it comes out about $28 with shipping. Not sure what I'm going to do with these... maybe test out the keys and put them on another board but not sure.

Sign, the seller must not like me.  I first offered $7.5 each for 2 + shipping.  He counted me $13 each for 2 + shipping.  Now I count him $8.5 each for 2 + shipping.  If the seller doesn't accept, I will pass.

Still the cheapest source of clear switch stems for mods!  I really like mine as it is, but I've got a Leopold brown coming soon that is begging for clear stems.  Makes me wish I bought two!

Good to see so many people jumping on this as well.  Helps the guy out, despite the lowballing, and we get mod-fodder!

Is the Leopold plate-mounted?  If so you will have a lot of de-soldering and soldering to do.  I might do that to a Filco to mod it to ergo clear.

He says that it does (well, says that they are "white sliders with black surrounding" or something equally just descriptive), but the picture he has as proof is actually a picture of an example from the previous board. I sent him a question already asking him to do one of this board.

I wanna see if this board is NKRO as well.
