Got the Base set but missed out on the accent colors. Anyone in the GB that is willing to sell theirs?

Keyboards / Re: Box Royals - Dream swith for modders?
« Last post by TheNamesTy45 on Mon, 21 May 2018, 22:54:50 »
Just put a Hako True stem and spring in a box royal housing. Can also confirm that the tactile bump is substantial.

I have only tested an individual switch mounted to a plate and not soldered into the PCB next to a stock Hako true and stock box royal in the same setup.

To me I feel like I'm getting 85% - 90% of the original Box Royal tactility at the top, but then the bottom out is super cushiony due to the True spring. In terms of sound, this "True Royal", or whatever it's going to be called, has more bass and isn't nearly as clacky as the stock Royal. This is likely due to the spring cushioning the bottom out more.

I don't really know what else to say other than this is a slightly less tactile switch (in a less harsh way) than the stock Box Royal, with a really nice spring weighting.

TL;DR: This is a really interesting switch that I'm considering for a higher end build.

Off Topic / Re: What are your other expensive non-keyboard hobbies?

I don't really indulge much in my expensive hobbies because... well... money. But here goes:

  • Computers. Easily the most money sucking hobby of mine. Every year I get about 350 to 385 back in Property Tax Credit, and it usually goes to either my computer or my mom's. This year it got her an i3 8100, 8GB of DDR4 2666 RAM, an Asrock B360 Pro 4 motherboard and two 140mm case fans to replace the one that basically exploded on her and the one that's going out. On the first it will be rounded off with a new case, which will have those two fans transferred to the top exhaust.
  • Keyboards. To be fair, I spend a heck of a lot more on keyboards for a certain smoker in my household (who honestly asks for them whether she needs a replacement or not--she's far more of an enthusiast than me lol) than I do myself. But that is still two RK-9000's, a Unicomp Ultra Classic and an Adesso Tenkeyless with blue switches by itself, not to mention the keyboards I still use and the one that was murdered by a stray cola.
  • Fossil shark teeth. That is all.

For about the same price you could get a nice used Air with far more computing power and be a lot nicer to use (similar battery life as well). I believe someone put Android on one, and you can dual or triple boot any combo of Mac, Windows and Linux.

For ~$180 :eek:
New vs used.

Making Stuff Together! / Re: IBM Model F AT refurb!

That is beautiful! I just got a model F XT and hope to convert it to USB similarly. Sadly can't convert to ANSI but I am just happy to have a model F tbh.
Group buy has ended! Thank you soooo much to everyone who participated, looked, mentioned VT, did anything at all!
We had a big push at the end, and right now, this is how the ending numbers are looking:

Base Kit: 217
Spacebar Kit: 124
Accent Kit: 117

Now we'll get everything over to GMK, and get this rolling into production!
