Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

People in the 1980s, in general, were clearly just better than we are now in every measurable way.

The dumber the reason the more it must be done

Now that's a unique layout. Very tastefully done too.

Here's my FJELL.

I think I might've posted this before.

Here is the rundown:

Case - FJELL Round 1 #35

Plate - 1.62mm Brass Plate, custom cut

PCB
- Duck Eagle v1 PCB, holtite modded for hot swapping

Switches
- Alps SKCL Cream, the majority of which are LED versions that came from a Seiko-made SGI Button Box

Caps - IBM Multistation Sphericals x2; one set is the Chinese version, one is the Japanese version. The Chinese version has the blue legends. The spacebar is not from these sets.

Despite the SKCL Creams having LED holes and the PCB having backlighting compatibility, I haven't found any colors I like for this build, and the LEDs shine through the fronts of these caps due to the doubleshot molding not extending there.

Overall, it is one of my favorite keyboards. SKCL Creams have such a nice weight, and they go perfectly with these sphericals. The set is very uniformly shined and it feels pretty amazing on these switches. I use this board often.

Okay I was going to close this and do the poll but we've only got a few +1s so I'm going to leave it open for about 36 hours and then create the poll.

Please +1 your favourites out of those nominated already!

  • Missed another sale.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
