I love the spherical vintage keycaps!

I will definitely get a set when the site/store is up! Are you going to offer them in more colors than the classic brown?
That set of caps is SA Choclatier, a old set sold by massdrop i believe. From what I understand, he won't be selling caps, just the board and maybe sleeves and wrist rests as part of the group buy. If you want spherical caps like that, you can get SA profile caps from Pimp my Keyboard, and Maxkey. Maxkeys are some what different but very similar.

I started about a year ago because I wanted to see what the hype was with the mechanical keyboards, so I go a Logitech G610 with Cherry MX browns after a bit of a research and I loved the tactility. A few weeks later I really start hatting my rubber dome keyboard at work, so I bought a cheap Chinese ten-keyless with Outemu MX Blue clones, which by the way I know now that they feel better than the Cherry MX blues!

I was happy with those, but I wanted to see what the fuss was with Cherry MX reds, so I ended up with another Logitecg G610 but with Chrerry MX reds, which I liked as well but preferred the browns and the blues for typing and the reds for gaming. Then, since I basically write a lot of code daily for work and for hobby I wondered what was the perfect keyboard for typing and after research and testing I ended up owning 2 grey badge IBM model M keyboards, both bolt modded. I use now both at office and at home the Model M.

Future plan is to build a black (clicky) APLS ten-keyless with vintage spherical keycaps, because I want to try clicky ALPS and I love the look of vintage spherical keycaps. I am also actively looking for a DELL AT101W, because it looks nice and it is a nive APLS platform.

My point is that it does not take a lot to get addicted to keyboards especially if your spend 8 to 16 hours a day typing on them. They become an extension of your fingers and a productivity tool. Since I got the IBM model M I have noticed that I am more productive, cause I actually enjoy typing on that thing!

make AMJpad:owl_custom:all
Run this from the QMK root folder and make sure amjpad is lower case since the directory name is so.

Keyboards / Re: which form factor custom case would you be interested in the most?

Your pole is missing the full keyboard with numpad, which is my favorite, since I work with it a lot doing networking most of the time. My second favorite is tenkeyless, for no specific reason, since I have no space issues at my current desk.
I intentionally didn't include the full keyboard, as I find a keyboard plus separate numpad more useful, as you can move the numpad around. So what is your opinion on that?
I have never used it so I cannot really comment from experience on the separate numpad, but I can see how in some cases can be of use and offer more functionality than a permanently attached one. If I have the chance I might give it a try.

That being said I can see a couple of drawbacks, with the most noticeable one being that you cannot find old/vintage keyboard with a separate numpad. I work on IBM Model M both at the office and at home due to how they feel and sound. A lesser annoyance for a separate numpad might be the extra cable on the desk for some.

I voted for the 87% one on your pole by the way.

Imagine my confusion seeing a post from 2013 with images that show GMK Yuri. "Oh yeah maybe OP just updated it".
