[WTS] Artisans, Dolch PAC (OG), Varmilo VA68M [WTT] Artisans
« on: Thu, 29 October 2015, 12:43:37 »
I've had a series of unfortunate financial events and need to thin my keyboarding collection.  Shipping is an additional $5 for CONUS per order (unlimited items).

You can pay with Paypal goods, but I will only ship to the verified address.  If you need me to ship somewhere else, then you need to pay with gift.

I have tried to keep the prices at retail or reasonable; if there's something you think is out of line feel free to PM me.  Just want it to be accessible to everyone.

FS keyboards
($175+$10 add'l shipping) Original EX+ Dolch PAC keyboard - no shine on caps, no wear on the back of the board, all feet and bumpers intact, both logos intact, switches throughout are vintage MX Blues.  Board is basically unused and mint.  Never seen another one in this condition.  If you want the actual computer, it has all the guts and handled canvas case, you can have it for $30 + $50 add'l shipping.






($150) Varmilo VA68M, gray aluminum case, white backlight, MX Browns, Front-printed PBT gray caps
I love the build quality and design of this case; I used it for one day and decided the layout isn't for me.  Too bad because the white backlight looks so much better than the cheesy orange/red backlight most of these have.  Includes box, puller, cable, instructions.

More








FS Bro Caps
($30) MX Toothache Grumpkin


($25 each) MX Textured blanks (Esc Profile)


($58) TMX War Torn Defender


FS Other Artisans
Many of these are several years old; I'm sorry I don't remember the official name or maker of many of them.

($125) Ramage V5 Space Bar - words cannot describe how gorgeous this thing is.  Like New condition.  One of only a few.




($15 each) I think these two skulls were made by Hammer?  Long time ago.




($15) Handpainted spider web HyPnoCaP, painted by do_Og@n (thanks Signature!)


($15) Red trooper-style cap; eyes are open to the inside


($30) Transparent Cyan/Ruby trooper-style cap


($30) Gray/transparent cyan trooper-style cap


($20) HolyOOPs Aluminum Vader cap


($20) HolyOOPS Aluminum Stormtrooper cap


($30) Gray/Cyan Gasmask


($25) Smoked gray Gasmask


($10 each) Other artisans (yellow/black Krap, purple blank, orange blank, and Judgmental Skull are all gone)


($20 each) Premium blanks, a few are Hotkeys, a few from others, the Capt America is HolyOOPs I think (darker blue blank is gone)


($3 each) Signature Plastics old school style custom doubleshot caps


FT Artisans
WTTF the Bro blue camo gamer set, Senzunite Clack, or Night Owl Mk. II.  Other offers welcome.



Custom color from All the Things sale, only two were made that I know of



Frozen Core BroBot 2.5 (TMX)


Binge Orc (Slo-Fi and Golden Otter are gone)


Binge Gasmask - when Binge was first getting his start (before he started casting) he did some keycap painting and sculpting.  This cap is the oldest example of his work I know of.


You guys know these I think; the white clack is an early Depth White from many years ago (Gold BBv2 is gone, Frostbite Reaper is pending)


Parts and accessories:
($60 each) 2x Aluminum Pure cases (60%), good condition, only light use



($105) Hwood Carbon Fiber 60% sandwich case - unused, all parts present, from this group buy: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=71551.0



($15 each) NPKC Keycap Holder - 4 available, comes in original box.  Great for displaying keysets or your massive collection of artisans.


Keysets
($110) GMK Triumph Adler Keyset - full reproduction of original Triumph Adler keyset.  Legendary GB by Intelli.  Comes with all keys included, no shine, limited use.  Includes tray but I don't recommend it; doesn't hold the caps very well.




Thank you for viewing.





Gone:
More


Green Paranoid Reaper

($68) TMX Limited Edition Drone

($20) Black trooper-style cap; eyes have a red shine through lens

($52) MX Nitty Gritty Reaper Classic

($90) MX Pale Blue Reaper Classic, ESC blank, and WASD blanks

($120) MX Gray Reaper Classic, ESC blank, WASD blanks, arrows

($35) MX Bloodlust Lycan

($38) MX Mystic Purp Jolly Roger

($35) MX Chill Blue Reaper Classic

Purple/blue glitter Elephant cap - this one was a more recent maker but the name escapes me

Keyforge Orochi

i highly recommend the xwhatsit converter for model f. i believe it works on all models except for XT.

there are a few left on ebay

good luck! model f is the best switch :thumb:

edit; there are also these.

Thanks for the links, bro!  I'm going to keep an eye on those; they are a great backup, I'd still like to pick up something used a bit cheaper.

Just want to point out that xwhatsit is a controller, not a converter.  It replaces the extisting controller, not in addition to.  But you are correct that it does not work on the XT, but is needed for the xtant.

Computer functions but doesn't have an OS.  I have another DolchPAC (yes I do have a problem) with a busted screen but does have the OS on the internal HDD.  I have dreams of turning it into a gaming SFF but I just haven't had the time.

The keyboard really is a sight to behold.  To the point where I was making an adapter to plug into the stock RJ cable but decided it was too nice to type on....  :confused:

A man after my own heart.  :thumb:

I'd just take the hard drive from the other dolch out and swap it to the one that works.  It should fire right up as long as all the interrupts are set the same (at least if its windows--I tend to forget if these are 386/486 or not).  Otherwise it should easily boot right up for some lovely DOS action.

The keyboard really is a sight to behold.  To the point where I was making an adapter to plug into the stock RJ cable but decided it was too nice to type on....  :confused:
A man after my own heart.  :thumb:

I'd just take the hard drive from the other dolch out and swap it to the one that works.  It should fire right up as long as all the interrupts are set the same (at least if its windows--I tend to forget if these are 386/486 or not).  Otherwise it should easily boot right up for some lovely DOS action.



Yes, the problem is one of them has some odd NIC hardware in it...I mean more obscure than what you usually see.  I remember my initial research a couple of years ago indicated it was some sort of specialized banking adapters.  I didn't feel like getting into IRQ conflicts and interrupt collisions if I didn't absolutely have to!
I'm back.

Is the Dolch computer functioning too?  The keyboard looks gorgeous!

Computer functions but doesn't have an OS.  I have another DolchPAC (yes I do have a problem) with a busted screen but does have the OS on the internal HDD.  I have dreams of turning it into a gaming SFF but I just haven't had the time.

Interesting.  Is it a removable ISA card or built-in?  If it's built-in, that's super rare and would mean that your machine led some sort of special life.  :thumb:

Looks like the hand-painted cap is made by do_Og@n  :)

I don't know if it's that exciting...they aren't built in or locked down or anything. The top one has a good OS but bad video. Bottom has no OS but good video and screen.

Thx bro

Whoa, I've never seen a connector like that before in all my years of seeing connectors.  Of course, I forgot that these systems were originally network analyzers and after looking on ebay at some of the more expensive ones, I found one that includes a cable that matches that connector.  :cool:
