Title: White AZERTY keycaps for Filco majestouch
Post by: S4KuR4 on Fri, 11 November 2011, 16:52:58
Hello everybody!!!!

I've just got my brand new filco majestouch 2 in AZERTY, black laser etched keycaps, and I would like to make a checkered keyboard, the problem is that I'd like to buy AZERTY white laser etched keycaps set and I really struggle to find some that will fit my filco... I wonder if I can buy a QWERTY keycaps set and still put the Q instead of the A and the Z instead of the W ? :) I know that some rows doesn't have the same height but I'm really not sure about that. Also I have a 105 ISO layout >.> Any advises would be awesome! (and yeah maybe I can just buy some white blank keycaps but I don't know if it'll look alright with some keycaps with letters and some without and some keycaps will be missing!!)

Thank you!!

If you can wait until WASD releases ISO keyboards, you could get a set of caps from them...  even checkerboard, so all your fonts/lettering will be consistent.

Yeah!! I just found out about that! But it'll be a QWERTY layout I guess ;/ Will I be able to swap the A<>Q and Z<>W though? :) Thank your for you answer!!! I also need my &"'(-_) written on my keys XD! dawww!

edit: just went on the website and apparently you can custom a lot!!! this website really looks interesting!!!!!!! I hope i'll be able to have AZERTY keyboard with korean caracters :D hehe thank you again xD

edit 2: I asked them if I'll be able to order
- 105 ISO keycaps
- checkered (black and white)
- AZERTY with Korean caracters on the 37 letter caps

Sounds complicated but I really really want that !!! >.<

I have the same problem, I'm trying to find blank black + white keycaps for my Filco Majestouch in ISO format, but I can't find anyone who supplies them besides KBC who only do blacks looking at their website. Does anyone know any suppliers of quality blank keycaps (of any colour) for ISO format in the UK? I'm aware that Filco do really pure white keycaps which is basically what I'm after, but getting blank ones seems almost impossible. If I can get PBT that would be ideal.

Jimlad, do you post on OcUK? Also, http://www.keyboardco.com/keyboard_details.asp?PRODUCT=692 - best I can think of until WASD start doing ISO.

Nope, I don't go on the OcUK forums. I've seen the KBC blacks and I was thinking of getting them, but they only do black ABS keys as far as I know. I'll probably have to wait for WASD as well if there really aren't any retailers in the UK.
