Hey Guys,

Been lurking a long time. Working on my first build. Turned out to be a Tsangan build, due to lack of parts. Wondering if anyone has a spare 7u spacebar? Thank you all!

7U spacebars are so hard to come by! Especially ALPS mounts! Good luck!

I have 4 DSA bars, 2 light grey Cherry profile ones (not quite a match for OG Cherry ABS or PBT, one is slightly bent, one is straight) and a dark grey Cherry profile one.

2 Dell quiet keys. The older one feels better (winkeyless and sharper dyesub(?) keycaps), the newer one is in rougher shape.

Found them on the curb about a year ago, figured I'd send them to someone for the cost of shipping.

Hi, I'm new to the hobby and would like to try out some switches! I'm especially interested in trying some tactile switches, including the infamous Holy Pandas and the new Kiwis. If anyone is willing to put together a sampler, please let me know!

if paying for the shipping count i have quite a few random keycaps and spacebars, they come from a grab bag so if i have the time i may take a photo else ask, and the only 7U spacebar i had is not available at the moment (will be when GMK Darling ships, as will be a 60% set of pink pudding caps), i am inventoring what i do not need from previous projects and will update as i go.
Bear in mind i am in France and that lock-down is on at the moment (early November 2020 for future readers) so shipping will either be expensive or will take a bit of time.

Hi everyone,

Very new to the hobby and getting in my first PCB soon, was wondering if anyone had extra split spacebars they could send me since it's a 40% (candybar) and they seem like a pain to track down. Ideally looking for 2.75u and 2.25u. If you have extra stabilizers laying around they'd be appreciated too since I'm currently planning on only needing them for these keys :D

Any one have a topre spacebar spring they do not need? I was putting the caps back on my board to send it for rma it and I lost the spring. Do not want to send it without it and jeopardise my rma. Thanks

I'm looking for two 2u keys with POS mounts, like these:

https://pimpmykeyboard.com/dsa-2-space-pos-2-mounts-pack-of-4/

I could just order those of course, but I'm in Germany, and it doesn't make much sense to pay shipping and customs charges for an $8 product.

So if anyone here in Europe can spare two of these, I'd be very grateful!

I'm in the US, but I'm pretty sure I have a few I could spare. What colors are you looking for?

I need a full size Alps chassis - metal switchplate and (optionally, I can DIY) case.  Let me know!  Will gladly pay shipping.  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D 

PCB/caps/switches not needed, but hell I'll take those too ;)

Anyone have a Zealio, Durock T1, or Kiwi switch I can try? Most places are selling in quantities and the shipping is more than the actual switches. Willing to trade if someone wants some Gateron Yellows.

@asherw offered to send a Durock T1 and a Koala, but I ended up purchasing a small pack of Durock linears and threw in a small pack of the tactiles so I wouldn't lose so much out on shipping costs.

So, I've decided to still try and send him over some free Gateron Yellows for trying to help out.

I'm looking for the Q and O keys from a Wyse WY-60 or similar keyboard (thin ABS version if possible). I know these boards are common for vintage blacks so I'm hoping someone has them.

I got a few Apple chassis with PCBs &/or plates I have no need for. Would be willing to send in the CONUS for cost of shipping or free pick up in the SW suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA. I got,
1 - AEKII - Case with PCB & plate, no switches, caps, or stabilizers. Case is in good shape, but yellowed so could use a retrobrite.
2 - AEKII - Case with just PCB, no plate, switches, caps, or stabs. Case in good shape, but yellowed.
3 - Apple M0116 - Case with PCB & plate, no switches, caps, or stabs. Case in good shape, but yellowed.
4 - Apple A9M0330 - Case with PCB & plate, no switches, caps, or stabs. Case in fair condition, a few scuffs & yellowed.

All PCBs were desoldered with a desoldering iron & all pads should still be intact. If someone was to want an AEK case I'd probably just send both so you can choose between the PCBs as the one looked to have something spilled on it back in the day. I cleaned it up after desoldering so it's not noticeable to the eye, but who knows what that could've done to it. I'd also be happy to provide pics upon request. Just send me a PM on here if you are interested in any of these & we can work something out!

Any vintage black harvesters out there? I adore Wyse chassis, would be glad to take some off your hands for the price of shipping.

I'm the opposite, I have a few bags full of "vintage" black switches I pulled out of boards that I wanted to put something good in. I really hope none of those Wyse boards are getting scrapped because they do have great aesthetics.
