Vintage Caps on Vintage Board
« on: Wed, 15 November 2017, 21:54:42 »
I recently started looking at keycaps and their prices and realized they can be as expensive as a board.  :eek:

That being said, I recently bumped into this pretty nice deal on some vintage caps that are still on a vintage board to boot (which might have some nice switches as well.  They seem to be cherry mx since one of the keycaps are missing and there is what looks like an mx mount.  Might be exactly what someone here is looking for.  :thumb:

Or you simply call the color 'beige' and be done with it.  :D

Looks like the seller has a second in better condition.  It's apparently made by HP:

IIRC these are ITW magvalve boards. They come with a cross mount, but aren't MX compatible.
Check my keyboard video reviews:
