Title: Post your G80-1800 pictures
Post by: inlikeflynn on Sun, 16 September 2012, 19:28:19
Well since everything else has one of these threads, now the G80-1800's do too!


Since this is my 420 post, i'll start this off with the one and only Green G80-1800 from a custom order by Sailor Radio Company back in 1984.


Originally came with all black-on-beige Cherry double shots that I cannot find my picture of. So here it is with MBC's RGB set and i3oilermaker's billards set

And another with CCnG
(http://i.imgur.com/Eng6A.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/Eng6A.jpg)


The green case is an original direct from Cherry , not a 3rd party job. It is in fact painted green, not molded as green
(http://i.imgur.com/NpBAM.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/NpBAM.jpg)


But painting is the same way they finish any of these customer boards. Here is another custom 1863 on top with the same sort of painting visible from the bottom
(http://i.imgur.com/oFDoA.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/oFDoA.jpg)


The PCB is pretty dirty and nothing special. So until I can clean that up, I just put the top half of the case onto an 1863 with white-on-black Cherry double shots

The G80 1800's too me, are the MOST beautiful keyboard Cherry has ever released.

It's unique and has a style all it's own.  No other manufacturer has made anything similar to it's layout.  Thank you for showing us your baby, she is mighty fine.

In fact every time I see your CC&G's in that 1800, I start quivering.

hmm, interesting. I wasn't aware that such an 1800 existed. I still need to try the G81-1800 poor mans plate mod like sixty did before with some 3000's

Post by: IvanIvanovich on Tue, 06 November 2012, 14:07:58
Oh, it's not an 1800, it was some weird terminal model before 1000 series that had a plate. Also some 2000 models have partial plate with the top rows of function key, but that is all to my knowledge.
There was some aftermarket modded from Asia with plate for 1800 and 3000, but that dosen't count. I saw a couple of those for sale on taobao not too long ago.

Just got this lovely board. Originally it was MX Brown, and I modded it to MX Red, then realized that the MX Red space key just too "soft" to me so am now planning to change it to Black or linear Gray.

This board is a customized edition by Cherry China Agency, to commemorate China's first CS world Champion team, the wNv. The proto model of the board is G80-1865LYNEU-2, and then the upper cover is customized for white lacquer baked with black "WNV-TEAMWORK" and Cherry logo. Four additional white on red double shot key caps come with this board, which are Esc, W, N, V, and the red W is profiled as Cherry E profile, which is abnormal compairing with other Cherry W keys.

It is said only 500 were produced for this wNv edition board, but extra amount of the single white on red double shot Esc key were made for some unknown reason.

Finally some more pictures of and details about the scitex 1824 HAU


It is quite the beautiful board, and I am thankful tinlong sold it to me :)
The keys are pretty much unused, but some are scratched and the case is especially scratched. So it looks like it just moved around on a shelf for its whole life.

(http://i.imgur.com/Cfy0ToV.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/Cfy0ToV.jpg)


The color of all the keys & case is the same dark gray color from a dolch keyboard
(http://i.imgur.com/j0yTcle.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/j0yTcle.jpg)


And yes the Blue F1-F8 keys are double shot
(http://i.imgur.com/D2xY8gg.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/D2xY8gg.jpg)


Inside & outside labels match with G80-1824HAU.
The "A" part of the model name doesn't match, as per the wiki it should have black switches & DIN cable.
It actually has clear switches & ps2 cable.....so its either another Cherry model number mystery or it was modded by someone at some point in its life

Before I knew anything about anything keyboards I purchased a G81 trying to get some decent Cherry double shots. While I did succeed in getting some caps they were pretty crappy. Fast forward almost a year and I'm throwing crap away and realize I have an 1800 compatible case! Once my Montana Gold paints arrive I'll do something fun with them. I might plastidip one gunmetal grey in the mean time  :p

Yes, it is. And yes, he did. Speaking of, flynn, which did you get? I know it was ISO, but was it the one with NKRO and Doubleshots? Or...?

yea its the ISO K1, which is really just a g80-1856. Yes it is double shot and its USB, so 6KRO

I have a ton of diodes, need some?

Alrighty. Let me know. The diodes are almost cheaper than a postage stamp, but you can have as many as you need for an 1800. I can send some over to ya. :)

Does anyone have an ANSI raptor K1 they want to trade? I have the ISO one, don't think I'll like the lay out. It's coming to me soon. : )

If you don't like it and can't find a trade, let me know. I will take it off your hands.

Will do. But if anyone wants to trade, let me know, I really want to keep it since I've been looking for it for a long time.

its basically impossible to find the ANSI K1 anymore. If you already have the ISO one and don't like the layout, then just cheat and put an 1863/5/7 into the K1 case like this
(http://[http://i.imgur.com/2QD5Bd6.jpg)

I'm also not sure on all the tricks of what controller swaps will or won't work to get > 2KRO. From what i've tried to read on KBD, it seems that they have managed to replace the controller with one from another Cherry board and add diodes successfully though

Yes taking one all apart and installing diodes is something I have been meaning to try for awhile. Maybe this weekend I will try it out on sacrificial 3000. I only have 'rare' 1800 now and would be pissed if something went horribly wrong and it was ruined. We know the switch PCB is cake, just swapping jumper for diodes basically. It is all up to the controller. There was replacement controller made by member on DT that looks really promising but they have not as of yet made a groupbuy for it.

inside the US you can get a G80-1865LXNEU-2 for $125 shipped. that is assuming you want browns and will just throw away the lasered keys

from taobao you can get all other switch types in an 1865, but after shipping will run you closer to $200shipped to the US
You can also get 1867's from korea for about $200 shipped to the US. so those would be english+Hangul lasered caps.

if you're in Malaysia, i'd try the taobao or korean route to get an 1865/1867 ansi layout board

Check taobao. There is often some decent ones on there if they are actually available to buy. Zenuty's 1838 are not that bad of a deal. Pretty much only winkeyless model with browns that was made and the have a really white white doubleshots keycaps.

In general 1800 models are probably most common with blacks. 1813 have blues, 1838 and 186* have browns. It's also possible to get 186* model with reds and 1800 with clears though they are considerably harder to find.

It's actually a frankestein board with a G81-1800HQAUS case and 1819HEU w/clears for guts!!  ;D

and that is actually quite the interesting frakenstein board as the 1819's are pretty rare and I have never seen a black one of them. So your caps likely came from the g81-1800HQUAS

Finally some more pictures of and details about the scitex 1824 HAU


It is quite the beautiful board, and I am thankful tinlong sold it to me :)
The keys are pretty much unused, but some are scratched and the case is especially scratched. So it looks like it just moved around on a shelf for its whole life.

(http://i.imgur.com/Cfy0ToV.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/Cfy0ToV.jpg)



The color of all the keys & case is the same dark gray color from a dolch keyboard
(http://i.imgur.com/j0yTcle.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/j0yTcle.jpg)



And yes the Blue F1-F8 keys are double shot
(http://i.imgur.com/D2xY8gg.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/D2xY8gg.jpg)



Inside & outside labels match with G80-1824HAU.
The "A" part of the model name doesn't match, as per the wiki it should have black switches & DIN cable.
It actually has clear switches & ps2 cable.....so its either another Cherry model number mystery or it was modded by someone at some point in its life
(http://i.imgur.com/5yg8vfc.jpg) (http://i.imgur.com/5yg8vfc.jpg)




Btw, all scitex 1800 come with clear switches.

P.S. There's a scitex 1824 HCU selling in Taobao at thsi moment.

A GB where we can have funky cases made, eg, the school bus case, maybe a pikachu case.

We can have maybe 4-5 designs in different form factors, because I see there are many members with families and young children here on GH, and I know for a fact that you want to treat them with awesome keyboards, and thus these colorful funky cases.

I like it a lot and I cant imagine how great it can turn out with some modifications like you guys have done. Very nice guys. :)

My first mechanical keyboard arrived today finally. For 10€ there is nothing to complain about and I´m already loving the layout  :thumb:
It features black MX switches and it is to early to tell if Ill stick to it. What is this grey spacebar switch all about? Never read about "grey" MX switches anyway.

I would really appreciate if somebody could give me a hind where Ill could find cheap blank alpha caps shipping to germany. Banggood is still the cheapest vendor...

Cherry always has a stiffer switch for the spacebar than the other keys, so that is what linear gray spacebar switch is for

good luck on getting a complete set of blank keys to fit the entire 1800 layout though as they don't exist...or do they:

Post by: laffindude on Fri, 29 November 2013, 05:56:05
The case quality actually exceeded my expectation, but don't buy it for the case. I would probably give it a B-. I've owned much better cases. Then again, those cases all cost more than this combo. The factory package is packed very poorly. Only a thin layer of bubble wrap into a thin cardboard. Mine has a few small dings on the edges, a cracked corner plastic piece (not too bad), and a divot where an edge siding piece is digging into the side plate. I am surprised it made it to me without much more damage.

It'll probably go into the collection and occasionally gets fondled. Semi-interesting is that this keyboard is based on an EU ANSI board (see the Euro sign). I've always thought China Cherry distributor imported US ANSI boards.

Nice to see one of these boards+case in someones actual hands. bummer about the shipping damage though.

and the board has the Euro sign because they are all the EU models and not the US model for whatever reason. The only difference between the a ENEU and ENUS is the Euro sign. Maybe just all Cherry had left
G80-1865LYNEU-2   MX Red Switches
G80-1865LWNEU-2  MX Blue Switches
G80-1865LXNEU-2   MX Brown Switches

Post by: IvanIvanovich on Fri, 29 November 2013, 11:11:07
Cherry discontinued use of US and replaced with EU in I think 2009/2010... no idea why... like adding the Euro sign is any kind of importance, as the only Alt Gr character. I really don't see sense in why they renamed as it's still US layout.

Really nice boards, all of you.

I came across this thread after doing some research into these. Got a Skidata (or two) on the way and it seems that those keys fit the ISO G80's.
It would be hilarious to swap the switches for Clears and vinyl wrap it blue to make a mini SkiData XD.

What's a Skidata you say?

Lol, I have also tried to contact that idiot for two years now, either he scams people, is too stupid to figure out how to sell anything over dba or plain simply don't want to sell anything.
I once phoned him with luck asking for that exact keyboard and he told me to just write him a mail, which I had done multiply times already and also did again... He never replied or picked up the phone again.

But I think it's a G81 if I have to be honest, but still nice caps. I would love the 1.5 mods on it.

I was comparing my 1814 with the 1813 model and are the same. I think that the different number is because is... Spanish?? In any case it is a "mx clear" keyboard and that is very interesting too.

Since it just looks dusty and not heavily soiled, just hold it keys down (so the dust falls and doesn't get pushed inside it) and use something like feather duster or some soft bristles paint brush or similar. It's basically how I do my regular cleaning on my keyboards.

So did you paint the casetop, or is it some strange rebranded Cherry we haven't seen before? It looks great!

Correct. Repainted to make me feel better about all the NCR cases I'll never have :))

Try to remove the LED sticker with hair dryer if you ever have chance to paint another case. Nice job!

Look great it is slightly more blueish gray than NCR. Maybe with Olliveti set on top would look even better, either way nicely done.

Apropos painted case tops, I forgot I never posted my 1851.

When I painted the case simply removed the LED cover with a small sharp knife.

Hello.
I write this with my full operative cherry g80 1814.
I have decide keep and use it. It is great.

Thank you.

Just plug it in, every key is there just change it to the correct input in your OS.
What problems do you have with it?

Here is my G80-1890LUADE-2 ... aka Raptor Gaming K1 :P
(http://i.imgur.com/hn5DhNIh.jpg)
My Mini Skidata. :D

Did some vinyl wrapping on the front plate of a G81-1800 and used the keycaps of a SkiData board to try to make it look like one.
Unfortunately the Raptor is a winkey board and the SkiData winkeyless so the 1.5 mods and 7x spacebar don't fit.
So this has slightly turned into a Unicorn vomit board XD

Hello. Nice Keyboard by the way.
I have two problems.
First, I can not configure the Fkeys..
And second, I have problems with double typping (mistypping).  I think tthe problem is witth some keys like the ii or t (I have not correct the last text to show you the problem). Probably, it is a lube problem (but I do not want to  dismount the keyboard) or a problem by type on a mx clear keyboard.

hehe, thanks buds. The K1 caps are actually slightly darker than the gmk cyan caps but since I took the pic outside I think some of the nuclear glow in the dark stuff brightened up the exposure a bit, hah.

55g lightly-Krytox-mix-lubed Vintage Blacks~

Once I get my plate-mounted stabilizers, I'll have to dremel the Cherry 1800 case so that this bad boy will fit.

Also planning on MDPC-X sleeving (Aquamarine or Light Grey) a USB cable and soldering it onto this ~

Also have a spare case which I'll be either painting Metallic Blue or Gunmetal, but not sure yet ~

They talk PS/2 and there is a handset style socket inside the case so it should be as simple as crimping an adapter cable and installing it. The pins are GND, +5V, kb data, kb clock, in that order (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rj45plug-8p8c.png).

You might want to use an extra thin cable if you don't want to enlarge the hole in the case that the cable comes out of. When you open it beware that screws come in two lengths: two long screws in the back, three short in the front.

There is also an adapter cable of some sorts inside the Dolch computer case... but it is not as easy to get out.

BTW, here are mine. One acquired five years ago, one last week.

It should be as simple as crimping a cable with PS/2 at the other end, unscrewing the box, plugging it in and screwing it back together again. The hole the cable comes out of might need to be enlarged if the cable is not thin enough. Beware that screws come in two lengths: two long screws in the back, three short in the front.

WHY YOU HAVE TWO?! :'(   Sorry, just realized one is ISO and the other ANSI~ Beautiful~~~<3

I don't get how you guys find these things for so cheap... I really should figure out what to search for on ebay to find a set for cheap... I'd die for a set for my 1800. The vintage blues are also nice.

For me it was only luck. I got the first one right when the Dolch had become known. The computer with the ANSI one was posted in a Great Finds thread on DT, and I lived nearby so I got it if only to save the computer. The seller would have thrown the whole computer away if someone hadn't taken it. When we talked, we found out that I had been workmate with one his sons for three years, so he was extra nice and swung by my house with a Dolch carrying bag and Dolch driver diskettes a few days later. :)

I bought an extra PCB for my Dolch board to originally try out some mods on, but I think what I might end up doing is swap the switches, and then possibly swap the Lock LEDs to Pink or something

I didn't read the comment thread at first, and though you actually did it. And you angled the text in the wrong direction, it should be slanting in the other direction, if you look at the slant of the text, and then the slant of the keycaps, it looks like it is tenting. Anyways, nice board, makes me want a plain white 1800 case

Yeaaah~ I was considering the Dolch add-on pack but kinda pricey for just Esc and Enter :( ... But I'm still considering it!

Feng won't reply to my multiple PM's... WHY ARE THEY MAKING IT SO HARD FOR ME TO COMPLETE MY 1800?!

That black one makes me so happy!

I'm really excited just by looking at these, I think I might have to build a standard case 1800 board in black, after seeing Jacco's Skidata-inspiured, ApocaMeow's black one, and Vesper's beige one... they're all too good to resist.

This is me saying that even though I already have TX1800 and LZ-CP on order, the standard case is still so nice.

I swear, these keyboards are keeping my up at night.

No I didn't have a leeku and the layout works for me.  Was a lot of soldering since the browns came from another g80, so I desoldered twice and soldered once.
You could have opened the switches from the top and saved yourself desoldering and soldering

Thank you!

It's not 100% white, the picture does not render exactly the colors.
In fact it's just a traditional beige top-case from an old G80-1800 on the black under-case from a Raptor K1!
I wanted to keep the native USB hub and I like this "new" two-tone case: a little more contrasting than an all black keyboard! (without the aggressive "Raptor Gaming" logo...)

Some semi-nude shots of my Leeku 1800 because it's love... I can't get enough of it.

I need to decide if I want to add LEDs to it...

There's something wrong here...there are too many keys on the right side of this thing...




In all seriousness, I'm with hwood on this one, Vesp-brah.  No LEDs.

The baes have spoken~ It's settled then~ No LEDs it is.

I hate to agree with Seth, but he speaks the truth.

1800 is godly layout. The Alpha and the Omega.

Thank you! I thought the same way about the ESC, it's just bugging me that it has'nt got the right profile. Thinking about replacing it with a red artisan.
Also I spray-painted the case white, see spacebar for original color.   ;D

The 1800 is definitely my favorite layout along with 75%. It definitely feels really good to be using the numpad keys, instead of having them sit inside a ziplock bag :P

I'm with you, my brother. Goupil cases are absolutely beautiful, and I wish I had one too. The angled all-round bezel edge is amazing.

Lubed 60g vintage blacks

It's been a joy typing on these. Finally got to feel the vintage cherry switches and now I'm curious if there is a source for vintage clears.

Board is heavy as balls though. I laughed maniacally when I was unpacking it.

Don't you feel like you wanna keep rubbing your fingers along those angled bezel?

OOOO~~~ Very good choice! Vintage Blacks are the king of linears (not including Nixxies)! You should definitely try to acquire yourself some Vintage Clears. They are a splendid switch to type/game on too.

There's also Tactile (Purple) Zealios you can consider if you can't find those~

I'm entirely with you on the laughing like a maniac... something about heavy mechanical keyboards that really touches the funny bones *blush*

I, 100%, understand what you're saying!!! I do that already with my bottom edge of the Cherry 1800. HUEHUE. Something about those angles, breh. I also do that with some smooth sides of artisan caps :P Just rubbing my fingers on themmm ~

I know, baby :( I've been rather inactive recently because of personal things. I'll try to be on more often, if not, I'll send you PM's too, etc. <3

ermm, vintage blacks are ~70g on korean scale. please bear in ming that my fav switch is custom linears w/ SPRiT 65g springs, and they are way lighter than my vintage blacks boards. 60g would me closer to mx reds

hope it help to clarity ;)

62g is definitely the next best linear weight. 62g Vintage Blacks were the first Vintage Black switches I had in a keyboard. The absolute perfect gaming switch, for sure!

do you want a goupil 1800 case that made out of aluminium

(http://i.imgur.com/5Tisjgc.png)

I'm designing an 1800 PCB... not that there's anything wrong with the Leeku 1800 PCB... I just like designing PCBs and want to run TMK on it.
I bought my Dolch PAC so I could reverse-engineer the dimensions/mount hole locations, and then fell in love with it and haven't used anything else since.
I'm keen to collaborate and make my 1800 PCB compatible with any plans for an 1800 case.  ;D

Oooh this sounds dreamy! TMK on an 1800, I'm in love.

Would it have backlighting support?

Yeah, basic backlight support, just all switch LEDs in parallel with resistors, nothing fancy.
TBH I'm not into LED bling on keyboards, but I put it in for people who want it. I will put in separate control of the caps lock/num lock/scroll lock switch LEDs. (I'm thinking of a low-profile, no bezel case with SKIDATA+ windowed keycaps drool).

I'll post a link to a new thread when I have something to show. /end threadjack

HyperFuse is pretty damn good looking set I didn't get in on. About the only way it could look any better on a standard case would be in the glossy white wNv one

Ooooo ~ I've always wanted to get my hands on that keyboard~ I know you have/had one!!! Mad jelly, bruh :'( Too bad they're so hard to find, that and for a good price. *sighhhhhhhhhhhhh*

I'm with you though~ it'd look pretty damn amazing on that board. I have a spare case, and I'm thinking of spray painting it to match or make a theme for Hyperfuse. If that ever happens, you can bet your ass it'll end up on here :3

Not very good looking and 4 keycaps are missing. But still, I like it. Later maybe I will get some more keycaps to 'dress' it. Then I'll be back to show more pics.

Yessir! I'm using it at home, and it's not too bad. It's strange getting used to Cherry profile, and MYs aren't fantastic, I think they are a lot like MX Greys, but I will be getting a new PCB some point in the new year to change it to clears, or maybe Zealios.

**** yeah :3 I'm using it now so I can get used to the layout, then hopefully it will have SKIDATA+ on it... As much as I love the German legends :( I'm so tempted to try and find a set of Cherry UK ISO alphas and just keep the German mods...

Yeah, you'll get used the layout pretty fast. Only major change would be if you're used to winkey and then switching to WKL.

But yeah, having a foreign layout can be tricky. Luckily, Azerty didn't give me any issues because I'm typing ANSI and I touchtype so the legends don't bug me too much :P

I'd say wait for that SKIDATA+, m8. It's going to look so good.

Its leeku's 1800 PCB, and LZ made some milled + brushed aluminum top and bottom layers, with 3 acrylic mid layers. Not as fancy as LZ's modern boards, but if you are interested there is Meiosis' ComPact SQ 1800 with an option for "Alu Skin" (same idea, different form factor)  https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=76617.msg1917524

Newest one to the family! Just picked up today.

G80-1814HEU with original Cherry Style Keycaps and MX clears. It has one broken Clear stem and a missing a keycap (which I beleieve I may have an SP cherry profile replacement for). Distributed by Seimens. Keycaps are like new with no shine (as seen in pics) and it hasn't been cleaned yet (white on there is just some powder).

omg so jelly

I know, right?  ;D
Its the rarest 1800's to find and its the BLACK version which i haven't even been able to find pictures of elsewhere.
Plus, there is no shine on the caps, already sent a message to Bunny to see if I can buy a += keycap from the JTK first run as a replacement.

I found a Focus FK-9000 the same day and pulled a G80-1600HAU from the same place before Christmas as well as a bunch of rarer alps keyboards like a Texas Instruments branded Acer KB-101A and an SGI Granite PS2 as well as some not-so-rare mech keyboards. I prefer a PCB + Plate mounted feel and don't generally care for MX clears, but these feel so much nicer than another MX clear board I have (pok3r). If this is what Zealios feel like, I finally get it.

I found a Focus FK-9000 the same day and pulled a G80-1600HAU from the same place before Christmas as well as a bunch of rarer alps keyboards like a Texas Instruments branded Acer KB-101A and an SGI Granite PS2 as well as some not-so-rare mech keyboards. I prefer a PCB + Plate mounted feel and don't generally care for MX clears, but these feel so much nicer than another MX clear board I have (pok3r). If this is what Zealios feel like, I finally get it.

What is this place you keep finding these boards :O

Fred's warehouse of fun, which was up for the picking for Dallas Makerspace members on certain days. I have pulled Tons of Techflex, Shrinktube, Mil-spec SPC Teflon wire, a Tektronix Logic Analyzer (still working, with PODs, and even found the matching MX black Tektronix keyboard for it today which is really pretty), Power Conditioners, and even a few Variable Power supplies.

Tons of other stuff I haven't yet posted anywhere. However, I have given away many to friends and family with no mech keyboards (Mostly Del At-101/w's I put new ALPs keycaps on from the MD GB). I have picked over everything that looked salvegable though, but there are some old WYSE terminal boards still left in the joint with vintage MX blacks as well as a rubber-dome Model M which is in good shape. Some keyboards, especially the XT ones, will likely be given to other members of the Vintage Computer Club who are in need (bunch of cool old funky layouts).

Its mostly been Clean, Fix, Test mode lately with many of them. Even got an Alps 1800-style board with Trackpad out of there which is also going to a friend who does CAD and needs the numpad, but looking for a compact.

 It is HARD work pulling some of these out of here and I have gone through almost every inch of the place. There is an IBM compatible HP Spectre in the back that is complete (matching monitor and Keyboard) in great shape as well. I even got a brand new case for my IBM 5150 and Matching original Monitor of which he has sooo many.

If you want a PCB that is essentially broken and with only switch bottoms..sure. But shipping costs would be pretty high.

This was a HAD 1800, now it's a unicorn, my wife wanted a happy keyboard so I made this for her, I made her happy because she is the best wife a man can wish for :)
The caps are a mix of almost everything, JTK Purple for alphas, Hyperfuse for Numpad, GMK Purple for ISO Enter, CYMW mods and the Rustler because she deserves only the best. The switches are the original MX Blacks, she loves to type on them.

If you use the Dolch case, you can use USB without visible holes :)

Here is my entry for this noble 1800 owners club. It is a new G81 case, with a Leeku MX 1800 PCB (v3), unlubed and unstickered MX Reds (but with 55g SPRiT springs), and a mixture of ANSI and ISO German caps. Unfortunately the ANSI set I bought a while ago from Taobao were in a weird profile, and so I mixed the sets. Also i have to re-solder the right ALT switch, it is askew!

I will make one later, basically I just had to make a cutout for the USB plug. A sharp knive is enough for cutting the case.

Regarding the LED I used one I got from SPRiT (I think he added a RGB set to every order I made), and it glows red now.

Beautiful Madhias, that looks amazing. Soo classy!  ;D

I'm planning out a Leeku 1800 build right now, and I was wondering if anyone here could tell me if the original PS/2 cables work alright via USB with a converter? I prefer the look of the OG coiled PS/2 cables, but I'd still like some USB action.  :))

Now, that would be something! I would also like to know this. Double win if that is the case, no need to cut the case _and_ original coiled cable... Yummy!

Yeah, those were my thoughts too. I don't really want to cut the case, so I'll deal with PS/2 if I have to. The cable is sexy enough to make up for it. PS/2 is inconvenient for board swapping though..

I also thought of using PS/2, but as you said board swapping and using it all the time somewhere else makes it so much easier to have USB directly available! I would say with a correct adapter it will work to use the PS/2 mode and cable. I have still the original cable, with original packaging and all, so maybe one time I will change it.

Yes, I had to cut the case, but a sharp knive was enough to do this. It is not that exact, I like it, it could be better though, but it is on the back of the case... I will post a picture later. Now my wife has taken the camera! Arrgh.

No, the mini USB port fits completely inside of the case and it does not interfere with anything. You can solder your USB cable to the PCB and you're good to go.

Can confirm. It closes perfectly after soldering in cable, and the USB hub doesn't interfere at all with the G81-1800 case.

The cable, you just need to reroute using the upper space in the case.

However, I did mine awhile back and was using the first/early generation of Leeku PCB, unlike the new ones ppl are using now.

This one uses the Beast plate, and I had to dremel the case to fit the plate though.

Bit of a Frankenboard; case and caps are from a G81 (notably all caps on the four upper rows are D-profile), switches are from an old 1800HAD (lubed and spring swapped to 62g - smooth as butter) and the PCB is a Leeku.

Unfortunately, the cap donor was two caps short. I didn't think this would be a problem until I realized it had all-D-profile on the top four rows, meaning that I came up empty trying to find suitable caps for page up and print screen. Bummer.

The 1800s look great with just about any caps. Somehow even the classic white/beige caps fail to look boring on these boards. The possible exception is black caps on a black case ... which is why you haven't seen any pics of my 1800. I had my heart set on SoWaRe, but perhaps something else will come along ...

I'll be joining this awesome club momentarily. I just got all the parts!

I'm putting a Leeku 1800 with plate in a G81-1800 case. How did those of you with the similar setup route the cable? Did you

1. Cut a hole in the middle to use the mini B on the PCB
2. Solder a USB A cable to the 4 pins above the F6 key
3. Some other way

I'm trying to figure out a way to put a detachable cable on without cutting too many holes in the case.

Vespersaint told me that you can fit the pcb inside the case without modifying, there is also a labled spot to solder a USB cable :)  That should work fine for you.

Correct. The PCB fits inside of the case, with no interference, even if you don't cut the case for the mini USB port. You can cut a hole in the case and use the mini USB connector that is on the PCB, or you can solder the cable directly to the PCB. Either way works

2. Solder a USB A cable to the 4 pins above the F6 key
3. Some other way

I'm trying to figure out a way to put a detachable cable on without cutting too many holes in the case.

you and me buddy.

although I am not sure what case to put it inside and what switches to use.

I have dolch and g80 case
switches gateron blacks and ergo mx grey

g80

dolch case is horribly ugly

Now that I think about it I agree but the caps on my g80 are so crappy  :'( dolch caps on g80?

bro, dolch caps on a g80 is probably the best combo.

I'd be interested in seeing this too. I have the Leeku V3 PCB and plate, and a stock G81 case. Waiting on switches, but I'll be building it soon. Would be good to see what changes to the case I have to do, I thought it fit in there as is besides the USB.

Found this piece at taobao and got it for 110usd. Model is G81-1800
just received it not more than an hour ago. unpacked and find the condition of the keyboard is almost like new except a small scratch on the spacebar.

(http://i.imgur.com/U5Rv9ka.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/OvJagmx.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/dj0SnNV.jpg)

started typing on it and this how i feel generally,
- the switches feels a bit clumsy, not as crisp as my other blue switches
- the typing experience feels hollow, very plastic
- key caps are 99.5% brand new. Love the caps
- Love the layout, good for working and even gaming.
- the case is way too thin, when you accidentally tap on it you can actually hear that hollow plastic sound.

Plans
- changing the pcb (possibly leeku with plate)
- lube all the switches or even maybe changing them
- add LEDs, orange is my color
- spray the case to dolch color
- custom a usb cable for it
- custom pvc sticker for the num lock,caps lock and scroll lock indicators.

Would love to hear what you guys think about the mods im gonna make. any suggestions?

This might be one of the rare Dolch Keyboards https://deskthority.net/wiki/Cherry_G80-1813 , and if this is the case I wouldn't mod it. 1800 case are easy to find and cheap, it would be a shame to mod something rare, if this is the case.

Keyboard inside very clean! !
MY 1800 is to take the housing shell traded . Because the original IPC keyboard shell , especially ugly !

Ok, so it's not something rare :)) It's a frankenboard, a G81 case, a PCB from another board (maybe Dolch ?? ) and Dolch keycaps . But a not bad find :)
I think if you open it you will see that the PS/2 cable is soldered on the PCB or something like that.

$110 is a nice price for that...

Sometimes MX blues can vary for whatever reason, and that board looks like it has some newer MX blues. Just swap some vintage blues in and it'll be much nicer to use :), easy to find, just need a "Dolch" G80-1813, the slider color is lighter than what's in your board right now.

Personally, I wouldn't mod it much beyond swapping in some new switches/sliders. Enjoy it for what it is!

Thank you for the suggestion. Had an headache by just  thinking about all the de-soldering and soldering. I still havent make up my mind now between getting the TX1800 and salvage the caps from this g80 or keep it and just do as what you suggest changing the switches. I really like the design of g80 case dou, but it just feels too hollow. I just cant make up my mind right now.

I can confirm that the case doesn't work with the stock PCB or the Leeku PCB. The posts are different inside as compared to the regular G8X - 18XX cases.

I suppose you could cut the posts and make it work, that way you would have extra room for other electronics.

G80-1851, MX Black, most of 'em. Plus a couple of 1800s and one G81.
I'm doing a little research on degreasers and some whitening process that won't break the polymers, any pointers?
A couple of cases, the worst ones, will be sacrificed for tests.

I think its because the led will clash with the case inner part, for example I know that cherry 1800 inner case has sort of plastic grids etc. Thus some of the led location might be on the way

Hi Elth, could you please post pics of the areas on the plastic case you had to cut/file down to acommodate Leeku's plate/PCB?

I went in not knowing that the case needed to be cut, so pretty much everything is done except that.

The keyboard is currently at work so I can't snap any pictures right now, but don't be discouraged after finding out you need to modify the top case for it all to fit.

I've circled the areas on the plate that interfere with the top case; the cuts are very small except for the piece in between the F-row and number row. Also, I'm not 100% on the spot above the Esc and the spot below where the 3 indicator LED's are, but when you try to assemble you'll see if it needs to be cut

I know right; however, would you agree that would be expensive, if I just want to make my current set to fit the layout I have. But, thank you for your comment.

Thanks Elth, I've identified the same 7 points - that was the easy bit. What I'm struggling with is gauging/measuring how much of plastic from each section needs to be removed. I thought I'd just go for it & started filing the left arrow key section but it was so slow, imprecise and messy that I just gave up. Maybe I'm not using the right tools.

On top of that, I'm not sure how the cable is supposed to be routed as there doesn't seem to be enough space left inside the case (unless the preexisting USB-mini socket can somehow be repositioned, or there's a daughterboard/other parts I'm either missing or unaware of).

It's frustrating to be stuck at this stage as all the electronics work has been done.

What I did to measure was place the top case on the plate (this was before anything was soldered) and used a marker to mark how much plastic I needed to remove.  I then used a utility knife to cut the plastic and then gently broke off the piece with a pair of pliers. You could also use a dremel if you have one, but I would work slow with that as well.

Picture credit to madhias (few pages back in this thread)

As far as the USB cable, if you're direct soldering to the board (which it sounds like you're doing), I ran the cable on the underside of the PCB and there is plenty of room. Basically run the wires from the underside of the pcb and solder them on the top. You can also use the small hole above F7 to secure the USB cable with a zip tie; just helps to reduce the risk of accidentally pulling the cable out.

Hope this helps.

shwitches are pcb mounted, but you can't open them, because they have a sort of bezel that needs to be removed manually with a knife or something similar

Just some considerations about the size of this fantastic keyboard.

g80-1800
Dimensions (product):
approx. 405 x 180 x 44 mm

g80-3000
Dimensions (product):
approx. 470 x 195 x 44 mm

That's a difference of 65mm or 2.55 inches, which is a lot!!

If the bezel of the g80-1800 was more modern and smaller (let's say as big as the novatouch), the g80-1800 could measure only 380mm!! Which is a fantastic result considering that a tkl measures about 360mm

novatouch
approx. 359 x 39 x 138 mm

pok3r
approx. 292 x 103 x 38mm

g80-1800, temporarily with lasered keys, while waiting for gmk beige doubleshots....

Spring swapped with sprit 50gr springs... The uniqey clips precompress the spring, so the switch becomed heavier; to better approximate mx reds I used some lighter springs, which makes them almost indistinguable from cherry mx reds (wich are a little bit heavier, we are talking about a couple of grams). I lubed only the base of the spring by dipping them in krytox oil (from sprit too).

Completely silenced with gmk uniqey clips. Oh, the joy!!!!!

I also want to do a "fruity" one, but yeah. The layout of the 1800 is quite special :D

Very nice thread. <3

I am a G80-1800 fan myself. To be more accurate I am a Raptor Gaming K1 fan.

I bought my first K1 more than 10 years ago:

(http://i.imgur.com/7NpDjy9.jpg)

It has Cherry MX-Blacks, GER ISO layout, laser-etched keycaps.

(http://i.imgur.com/dRWL8jJ.jpg)

You may notice that the keycaps have the typical ABS shine to them. I don't mind. This baby has been my main keyboard for the whole time. Back when I bought it there was no real mecha-community. In fact I had to defend it more than once on a LAN party ("OMG? Why didn't you get a G15 with display and backlight?"). I wrote papers on it (from the first day of university until I graduated!), played probably more than 10k hours with it. You are still able to read every key's printing (makes you wonder: WHO NEEDS DOUBLESHOTS ANYWAY? :P). So what's the problem?! I still dig the layout and it works flawlessly. Hopefully always will.

I hesitated some time to post this because image quality isn't great and the keyboard isn't anything special when you take away the 10+ years of usage it lived through. Hope (some of) you like it!

Well and that's pretty much all I can post. I have some more K1s but they are all factory new (back when Raptor was bought by Corsair you could get them for down to 15€ on ebay and I once bought a whole stash of OEM-packaged ones) so I guess posting them would be kinda super boring, because I only got ISO-GERs (laser etched, not a single DS! :() and AZERTYs (all DS AFAIR).

I probably should aim for a little bit more variety in my "collection" before coming back. :P

I hesitated some time to post this because image quality isn't great and the keyboard isn't anything special when you take away the 10+ years of usage it lived through. Hope (some of) you like it!

Well and that's pretty much all I can post. I have some more K1s but they are all factory new (back when Raptor was bought by Corsair you could get them for down to 15€ on ebay and I once bought a whole stash of OEM-packaged ones) so I guess posting them would be kinda super boring, because I only got ISO-GERs (laser etched, not a single DS! :() and AZERTYs (all DS AFAIR).

I probably should aim for a little bit more variety in my "collection" before coming back. :P
Nothing wrong with the Raptor K1. It is a great little board and those GID keycaps can be a very stylish addition when done right.

I really like mine but my girlfriend now uses it at work with a small fortune in artisans and modpacks. :P

Very nice thread. <3

I am a G80-1800 fan myself. To be more accurate I am a Raptor Gaming K1 fan.

I bought my first K1 more than 10 years ago:

It has Cherry MX-Blacks, GER ISO layout, laser-etched keycaps.

You may notice that the keycaps have the typical ABS shine to them. I don't mind. This baby has been my main keyboard for the whole time. Back when I bought it there was no real mecha-community. In fact I had to defend it more than once on a LAN party ("OMG? Why didn't you get a G15 with display and backlight?"). I wrote papers on it (from the first day of university until I graduated!), played probably more than 10k hours with it. You are still able to read every key's printing (makes you wonder: WHO NEEDS DOUBLESHOTS ANYWAY? :P). So what's the problem?! I still dig the layout and it works flawlessly. Hopefully always will.

Slick!!! I assume from the pictures that you went with PCB mount instead of plate mount? I'm more of a plate mount person myself, but I suppose going PCB-mount stays truer to the original 1800 vision. Is the Cherry logo an original feature of the case or did you achieve that using a sticker?

I know it's not a G80-1800, but there isn't a thread for Dolch boards :)

So i spent a lot of this week cleaning up this bad boy. Half a tub of cotton buds and a pack of baby wipes later and here we are.

(http://i.imgur.com/ozIEqI6.jpg)

I bought it early last year with the intention of cleaning it up and never got round to it. It did originally have a rubberised coating on it (which you can see at the top on the ridged section) but it had gone sticky so i decided to wipe it off.

(http://i.imgur.com/64DMs1F.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/KsAUxix.jpg)

Dat controller tho. (Yes I know my desk is messy.

I hadn't tested it at all until about 20 minutes ago, and it works perfectly :D This one has a removable PS2 to DIN cable instead of an RJ11 cable like some boards. Luckily I had a DIN connector from when I bought my 1900HAD a while back, so I could use this to test it.

(http://i.imgur.com/ghpDLdU.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/xp3qwWe.jpg)

(http://i.imgur.com/znok661.jpg)

I have also used acrylic polish to remove some of the scratches caused by getting the coating off which actually works really well. Yeah it's shiny, but I think it looks ace. More to come with the accompanying project ;)

Hey guys thought this might be the thread to ask in. Anybody know where I can buy a black UK layout 1800? Haven't had a mech keyboard before thinking I might get the Miami Dolch kit off Massdrop to go with it.

All the ones I'm seeing on Amazon and Ebay are black mx switches and I'm thinking I'd prefer brown or red.

You will need to buy a standard 1800 keyboard and either swap the switches or the stems. I don't recall ever seeing G80-1800 keyboard with anything other than mx Black (with the exception of Skidata which had mx clear) (11800 and 11900 were made with MX brown, but they're not true 1800 layout and the keycaps are not totally compatible due to the 2u right shift.

blues and blacks, I only saw those versions. Opening the switches and replacing the springs is very fast though. I've just ordered the new cherry silent switches for my g80-1800

Yea, though for the actual part number G80-1800, I think this only has MX blacks. Different switches usually have part number variations,

1804 - clears (or blacks)
1813 HF* - blues
1824 - clears
1838 - browns (vintage)
1854 HAF - blacks

The ones with winkeys come in several different switch types, e.g. 1865/1890 - blues, browns, or reds depending on the product code

Big facepalm moment, I totally forgot about Dolch (and from someone who owns a Dolch Pac keyboard, no less!).

Yes the Dolch Pac boards did indeed come with MX Blues and also a single MX Green switch under the spacebar.

Shameless Dolch Pac plug:

My first vintage Cherry!

Cherry G80-1800HFU with vintage Blues. Feels great and in pretty decent shape. Just ordered some adapters to hook this thing up, and am going to give the keycaps & housing a cleaning!

First thing I did was plop some CMYK on this bad boy, looks great! Excuse the potato, was excited when it came in.  :p

First thing I did was plop some CMYK on this bad boy, looks great! Excuse the potato, was excited when it came in.  :p

Nice - the keycaps on the earlier G80-1800's are much nicer than the newer ones. (Recently picked up a 1800 and swapped the modern MX blacks for blues - next up will be some nicer caps.)  :)

I have a dolch pac case + leeku pcb that I still need to build. I finally got to see and touch a G80 1800 at the Portland Meetup a few months ago. I see that the G80 1800 is still actually available new. Is there some reason why the older ones are preferred over these new ones? Is it the keycap quality?

It depends on what you're looking for. I thought the keycaps felt good compared to other stock keycaps, but they are etched or lasered. You notice the patterns slightly under your fingers. If you're looking for a vintage look, they don't have it. They're grey, not warm. I do think that color looks good on the case, but you can probably find a cheaper deal on an old G80-1800 case if you're planning to switch out the PCB. Typing on a stock, PCB mounted G80-1800 feels terrible. There's so much flex.

This is what the new ones look like

I figured the keycaps would be lasered. I watched a Linus Tech Tips video in which they showed some machine just engraving all the keycaps while already on the board.


I'd ideally love to find an old G80 18XX, but I actually have never seen one on eBay haha. I've seen plenty MY versions though. I'll see if I can finish the Dolch this weekend and I'll be able to post a photo up here.

I've read a number of places that you can put a Leeku MX1800 PCB into the G81-1800 (MY) case. I just purchased one myself for my next build. But if you put out a classifieds thread or post on MechMarket, you will find one in a short while. That's how I got my case.

You have to make some notches on the top half of the case to fit the Leeku MX1800 plate into the case. I did that today and it took some hours with a file and knife.

I really like them. They feel a bit like lubed switches, without the mushiness. I have tried MX Red, MX Black and Gateron Yellow. I prefer the yellows, but only by a small margin over MX Red. I think it's a much bigger deal if the stabilizers are mushy or rattly.

Stock G80-1800 is just about one of the worst typing experience you can get, lots of flex, PCB sometimes shift around a little bit as you type, scratchy MX Blacks (at least the ones made in the noughties and 2010s, earlier ones have a chance of having vintage blacks.

Also, new 1800 keyboards come with 1u bottom rows and offset stem 6u caps, which for me is a slightly less desirable layout for a 1800 (don't mind it too much personally, but it does take a period of adjustment when I switch between keyboards with and without this bottom row arrangement)

So I just got the Din5-to-PS2 and PS2-to-USB adapters, and gave the 1800 a cleaning, and it works great!

"PgDn" and "Scroll Lock" seem to have some loose solder joints (they don't register 100% of the time), so I'll remedy that.

I need to adjust to the overall layout, but I love having the numpad in a compact footprint!

You will need to buy a standard 1800 keyboard and either swap the switches or the stems. I don't recall ever seeing G80-1800 keyboard with anything other than mx Black (with the exception of Skidata which had mx clear) (11800 and 11900 were made with MX brown, but they're not true 1800 layout and the keycaps are not totally compatible due to the 2u right shift.

blues and blacks, I only saw those versions. Opening the switches and replacing the springs is very fast though. I've just ordered the new cherry silent switches for my g80-1800
Didn't Dolch come with Blues sometimes?

Yea, though for the actual part number G80-1800, I think this only has MX blacks. Different switches usually have part number variations,

1804 - clears (or blacks)
1813 HF* - blues
1824 - clears
1838 - browns (vintage)
1854 HAF - blacks

The ones with winkeys come in several different switch types, e.g. 1865/1890 - blues, browns, or reds depending on the product code

There were also early iso-de (QWERTZ) Raptor Gaming K1 with Cherry MX browns and DS keycaps. AFAIR the K1 was released in 2005 and only some of the very first had browns. To my knowledge these all were QWERTZ. I know this for sure because I have a K1 with browns laying around somewhere. AFAIK there also is the Cherry "HUMUS" (G80-1863HUMUS-2) with browns.

I'm assuming it's just a differently coloured version of the Raptor K1 since the USB Hub at the back looks identical? (even comes with the switch blockers)

Cool board nonetheless, as a whole I think I still prefer the Raptor K1 due to the glow in the dark keycaps but that's personal preference  :))

I consider it top tier too!

While the 1.5 bottom row is more visually "classic", in practice, I actually find it uncomfortable for CAD work. I tap/hold control, shift, and alt constantly w/my pinky, ring and middle fingers, respectively. So the "classic" layout makes for a cramped hand pretty quickly. I imagine the 1u version being much more comfortable for my application.

I also like the fact that your more modern layout enables the use for command shortcuts on MacOS.  :D

Here is my Sailor Radio H2099 keyboard, a Cherry G80-1800 HAU, with OG double-shots and a khaki case "made in Denmark".

It was meant to be used on marine boats with the Sailor Radio Compact 2000 "GMDSS":
Quote
The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is an international system that uses terrestrial and satellite technology and ship-board radio systems to ensure rapid, automated alerting of shore-based communication and rescue authorities, in addition to ships in the immediate vicinity, in the event of a marine distress. Under the GMDSS, all cargo ships of 300 gross registered tonnes and upwards and all passenger ships engaged on international voyages must be equipped with radio equipment that conforms to international standards as set out in the system. The basic concept is that search and rescue authorities ashore, as well as shipping in the immediate vicinity of the ship in distress, will be rapidly alerted through satellite and terrestrial communication techniques so that they can assist in a co-ordinated search and rescue operation with the minimum of delay.

A very few of those seem to be in the hands of Cherry collectors, so I feel extremely lucky that I scored that board! I've modded the alphas to 62g SPRiT v1.2 springs, lubed the whole keyboard with thin Krytox, and added that nice Camo Reaper from BroCaps 420 sale.

The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is an international system that uses terrestrial and satellite technology and ship-board radio systems to ensure rapid, automated alerting of shore-based communication and rescue authorities, in addition to ships in the immediate vicinity, in the event of a marine distress. Under the GMDSS, all cargo ships of 300 gross registered tonnes and upwards and all passenger ships engaged on international voyages must be equipped with radio equipment that conforms to international standards as set out in the system. The basic concept is that search and rescue authorities ashore, as well as shipping in the immediate vicinity of the ship in distress, will be rapidly alerted through satellite and terrestrial communication techniques so that they can assist in a co-ordinated search and rescue operation with the minimum of delay.

A very few of those seem to be in the hands of Cherry collectors, so I feel extremely lucky that I scored that board! I've modded the alphas to 62g SPRiT v1.2 springs, lubed the whole keyboard with thin Krytox, and added that nice Camo Reaper from BroCaps 420 sale.

Cherry cases cost maybe 2 bucks, I wonder why they don't see a market for them. At $10 each they could sell really well.

Winkeyless is not produced anymore, but there are many of them around Taobao and they pop up on Ebay from time to time if you know where to look

https://world.taobao.com/item/524796233647.htm

The easiest and most surefire way to get a WKL layout 1800 though, is to build your own (1800 cases are dirt cheap, you can procure a plate by ordering one yourself from a laser cutting place or buy them from Kin25, and buy custom MX1800 PCBs from Leeku himself or resold via Kin25

Don’t worry, I wouldn’t dare paint a rare case like that one. I’m thinking of painting your stock standard cherry g80 case to have that matte dark grey colour (similar to Dolch PAC I guess)

Painting a cheapo 1800 case matched to the colour of the g80-1800 H2099 (the green sailors model) would be an interesting project, depending on whether I could get a sample or paint code for the H2099  :p

Here is my Dolch PAC64  / Cherry G80-1813 Keyboard.

I got this Dolch Pac 64 from Ebay and it was missing a keycap, so I added a "bug" from the Signature Plastics DSA Alps/Matias "Granite" keyset giving a "theme" to the whole PC.

Being a "bug", the key is different from all the other keys, shape included.

Here is my Dolch PAC64  / Cherry G80-1813 Keyboard.

I got this Dolch Pac 64 from Ebay and it was missing a keycap, so I added a "bug" from the Signature Plastics DSA Alps/Matias "Granite" keyset giving a "theme" to the whole PC.

Being a "bug", the key is different from all the other keys, shape included.

I upgraded the Dolch Pac 64 to Intel Core i7-3770T plus  Nvidia GTX 1060 and  replaced the LCD display.

The specs are:

LCD: 12.1" ChiMei G121X1-L04 LCD Screen Display
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770T 3.70 Ghz Quad-Core Processor
COOLER: AKASA AK-CC7124EP01 Low Profile

MOTHERBOARD: Axiomtech SHB120 PICMG 1.3 Full-size CPU Card
STORAGE: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive 1.44 Mb Floppy Disk Drive LG GTC0N R/W CD/DVD drive
VIDEO CARD: AsusTURBO GTX 1060 6GB POWER SUPPLY: Silverstone SFX ST45Sf-G 80 Plus GOLD 450W

The upgrade is not that easy nor cheap,  here is my  build log https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BgUoO9gYjU (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BgUoO9gYjU)

I did not modify the keyboard that is perfectly PS/2 compatible.

Okay, this is AWESOME.  Really nice work on that build, I think this is the first time I've seen someone smash a modern computer into a Dolch PAC.  :thumb:  Do you foresee yourself using the computer in a semi-mobile fashion?  Would make a really great LAN party machine.  :D

Yes, being able to change video cards or processors at will makes this build very versatile. This is perfect for Lan Parties, as well as hooking it up to Your HD tv for gaming or a VR google set. Its' compact and you can still enjoy the feel of a mechanical keyboard in a vintage machine that You can use every day.

Using a stripped off Dolch keyboard is not the same experience as using it on the original chassis!

It took 6 months more or less with most of the time spent studing pictures and diagrams of the new parts against the chassis non standard dimensions.
Every new part I tried to fit, I had new mechanical interference problems to solve and, using mostly special parts, I also had to wait for them to go back an forth from China, US, Germany and so forth.

Some parts had to be  hand made such as the lcd fixing brackets for example, but there is nothing that and average skilled builder can't make in this build.
It's just a matter of having a lot of patience.

The bug ruins the keyboard's look. I am afraid, so. But if you like the theme, well, let's be it.

I believe the Compaq off-white doubleshot base is the exact same colour code used for the GMK Barebones Stormtrooper kit

They are very close to the alpha color for Cherry beige double shots. Here is a picture comparing the two:

Here is the caps next to Cherry hellgrau color:

I believe the Compaq off-white doubleshot base is the exact same colour code used for the GMK Barebones Stormtrooper kit

I also have a G80-1838HPU. To me, the key caps resemble GMK Pristine (L9) more than GMK Stormtrooper (CP). The alphas are a creamy white rather than off-white.

I agree with the sentiment that they are close to the alpha color of OG Cherry beige.

All G80 keyboards use stepped caps lock as far as I'm aware.

G80-1800 and Cherry OG Dolch caps. The caps lock switch is in the wrong position, should be a quick fix.

And sorry to be that person, but is cerakote an option with plastics ;)

You can't cerekote plastics unless it can withstand 300c temps for multiple hours and even then you might have a tough time

Actually it's 300F, not 300C, but that's for quick cure.  You do 250F for 2 hrs.  If the case is ABS, it'll be a pile of goop, but PBT would take it like champ.  There are some photos and blog posts out there of people cerakoting a model M case.  Looks sweet.

It's one month older than me. Vintage browns. Cleanest board I've ever touched.

Edit: I took out the brown stems and tops because I like linear ;)

I am offering new slick and shiny dell keyboards in exchange for these bulky old fashioned ones :)

@T0mb3ry
How did you add the back light to the second keyboard posted there ?  Or did the keyboard come with it ?

I am also interested in 1x1 size windows key replacement. I am a FreeBSD user and would like to get that logo on my newly found Cherry G80-1800.

Back light? None of these keyboards has back light. The plate on the second board is red and its pretty visible. Maybe you mixed it with back light.

Post by: Link01 on Wed, 12 February 2020, 22:51:45
Yes, I did confuse the red plate as a back light. It looks pretty real to me. Since I do a bit of typing at night, I would appreciate a bit of back light for the keyboard, even though it does not shine through the key caps.

I dreamed about 1800 since I found HASRO and googled more about Cherry keyboards and their keycaps. And found - two months later. Data code is 1995. Black with a large logo, very similar to vintage. Smooth. The cap is almost mint! I'm afraid to use it and wipe it to shine. And a little sad - the seller said that there were several more, but they were sent to the scrap.

How rare do you think the H2099 in black colour?
the seller asks from 50 dollars

What a beauty!  Seriously though, can we start a go-fund-me to raise money for a PSA begging people to not throw away vintage boards?  Think how many are trashed daily.  :(

Well, I didn't know it existed, so pretty rare too I guess! :D

At that price you should get any 1800 with double shot keycaps though.

I found a rackmount case (tragically missing the rails) that fits a G80 or G81 1800 module. I got a built Leaku PCB with spring swapped silent blacks for a great price so all I need is a serial converter for the trackball.

Where are G80-1800s with doubleshot caps going for $50? I really need some 1800 keycaps.
