We used to have a thread like this one. The first one was deleted by iMav... :confused: then we created another one and I guess it got lost when R00tworm happened.

There is too much hate, poor Topre keyboards!

As you can see I like to keep my keyboards simple and clean. Not a fan of unicorn vomit trend, I won't put more than one skull on a keyboard because it just looks fugly.

That's all my colection of Topre based keyboards. I have a 4 Click Clack skulls for them and also 2 Click Clack blank topre keys.

I also have some full sets of keycaps including red printed, blue non printed and white non printed.

Just take apart your realforce and data-vac it every few months. Or use old pics so that no one will know how dirty it is :P

I don't know pro2 get become yellowed.  Topre may use better plastic for pro2?

hasu, how is the older hhkb holding up? Is there much different on the feel compared to the new one?
10 years. Pro was made in 2003 or 2004,  not sure because it has slip-stop sheet all  over bottom while pro2 production date is 2010/08.
I lubed my pro once with overhaul completely 2 or 3 years ago. I must say Topre switch feel never last forever without occasional maintenance. If you lubed your Topre can keep its feel as if almost new. I can confirm that.

I don't want to pollute the thead but color choice at EK is rather limited and they sell only for ANSI.   :'(  So I just want to change 2 winkeys and I don't see how to do that to be honest.  -_-  I guess I'll stalk GH. ;)

I'd love a set of red caps for my 87U. And I want a white 87U 55g. For which I'd want a set of yellow caps. And a HHKB. A pony would be nice too.

Is that an Octopink or Tickle Me Pink?

I got a couple questions for HHKB owners, do you guys use winkey for your daily use? Do you map it anywhere?
Is the type-s purely for reducing sound? Or does it actually affect feel?

Octopink. I need a milk pink to match my topre set :P

I use a Mac at work with my HHKB, and use my RF at home. The Type-S doesn't change switch feel at all, just silences it a bit, which is why I primarily use it at work, as not to annoy my fellow workmates :)

I havent owned a realforce in 6 months or so, but I sold it because I didnt like it. Felt like pressing a sponge. HHKB feels exact, tactile, and super nice. I dont know how it can be such a difference. It make me wonder wether i should give RF another try.

What model did you use? Was it a variable switch RF? I can't stand anything less than 55g on an RF. It feels like it was meant for the board. 45g and less just feel mushy on the plate mounted RF.

With that said, it feels like 45g is perfect for the plastic case of the HHKB.

The backspace location is one of my favorite things about my HHKB. But I have it dip switched so it's right above the Enter key. I like that configuration so much, I created an AutoHotKey script to swap those keys on my other keyboards.

Yup...that's the new 55g.  It's a combo of 2 different keycap sets (lettered lime green and lettered white).  The lime green replaced the number row and the white replaced the stock grey modifiers.

That is my exact setup also, the white and grey caps on the dark grey HHKB. I have been using mine for about a week at work and really like the feel. The layout is just ok for me but much better than my poker.

Arrived safe and sound, love the way it looks :)

I have no idea of the specific color, I bought it as just a "grey topre cc". I was really pleased to see how well it matches though. I've been digging through old threads trying to find a match but nothing looks quite the same

I have an 87U variable silent. I love typing on it. And it still has tactility. It's just not 'in your face' with it. A very refined typing experience.

My 87U 55g uni comes tomorrow. I'm excited like a kid at Christmas. But at the same time, not sure what to expect. I just don't see how typing could get any better than on a variable. But I'm sure both will have their place based on my mood. I switch to my HHKB when I want a change, and have no problem with keyboard shortcuts switching back and forth as some have pointed out. They both have their place.

Can you map them on this board? Pretty sure you can. Or at least in OS X or Win7/8

Fn+up arrow/fn+down arrow are the hot keys for home/end which aren't tooooo hard to use

I think you can map this keyboard with autohotkey without any problems

Incorrect. The mapping is this:

Fn+Up: Page Up
Fn+Down: Page Down
Fn+Left: Home
Fn+Right: End

Which makes a lot more sense and kind of follows the way Mac laptops work. In practice, it's really easy to remember and get used to.

My 1st Realforce a 87u 55g, I chose this because I have a HHKB 45g. Taking the advice from GH Topre users like BRO CAPS, daerid, and AKIMbO the 55g uniform is perfect for me. Thanks for the good advice. So far I like the low key look, but being a Mac user & not to fond of the Windows bubble keys I used some spare HHKB caps. With some key remapping its fully Mac ready, someday a Topre Clack would really be all I need for the full effect.

I read the same article, and it wasn't that bad. It was a tight fit in some areas, but overall wasn't anything that affected functionality. My only gripe would be two things:


1. Price
2. Those ugly feet.

I agree for the feet. Could have been better, but they are okay overall

For the fit,  well it's perfect. Nothing moves and everything fits perfectly . I think the korean review was talking about the screws that were hard or tight ? Not sure. Maybe he couldn't screw them all the way, and that's why he had "fit" problem.
Didn't have a problem with them. In fact, I had a problem with the realforce screw connecting the usb cable to the pcb. It was hard to remove :D

Hey longweight, how did you remove the logo?
I'm also interested to hear how longweight got the logo off.  Can you tell a difference in the texture where the logo used to be?

I've been cleaning up a bunch of older keyboards and noticed Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Clean-Eraser-Cleaning-8-Count/dp/B001339ZMW) took off marks very easily, so I would venture a guess that it might take the label off with enough elbow grease.  Also thinking toothpaste or some other type of rubbing compound might do the job without marring the textured surface too much, or making it shiny and smooth.

Post by: Sniping on Sun, 21 July 2013, 16:59:07
Be prepared for awkward ending as well. Sorry for quiet voice, I had to keep it down.
Here's the video
Again, the difference is mostly in feel, these caps sound different than stock, but only very slightly different. It's amazing how crisp these are though, hard to tell that these are 45g, they definitely feel a lot heavier.

So I kinda did a bad job explaining the repeating key at the end. It's caused by the different profile on these caps combined with the inconsistencies that I was talking about that made the "," key sit lower than all the other keys, and so if you pressed it slowly you would get a repeating key. If you press it again normally, the repetition will stop. But I'm just going to say that these keys feel quite different because of extra stiffness. As much as I would like to type on these all day, I also really want to get an Ergo Clear ErgoDox so I'm probably going to auction these off in FS meaning these caps are going to have to come off to keep them in like-new condition.

Nice! I'd wanted an 87U myself, but there's no stock of it.....didn't want to wait so I got a HHKB Pro2 instead. I will be getting a set of yellow Topre key caps for this badboy.

Yep, that's why I'd arranged to get a set as soon as I'd gotten either the HHKB Pro2 or the 87U (was sitting on the fence on this for a while). I should be getting the key caps on Friday....can't wait! ;D

How do you like your 103UB-55g compared to your new HHKB pro2?

How do you like your 103UB-55g compared to your new HHKB pro2?
I'm actually quite flexible when it comes to switch types I use. I have Cherry KB's in Red, Black, Brown, Blue and Green, like 'em all! The 55G on my RF feels a tad better to me when compared to the Pro 2 at 45G., I've always preferred heavier switch types, that's why among my Cherry KB's, I find Black and Green are so sweet to type on. Thus far, I'm enjoying the feel of the Pro 2 though, it somehow feels heavier than a Brown at 45G.....that's why I love Topre, it feels heavier than Cherry even though it's rated at 45g, I guess it's stiff initially  but collapses pretty quickly after the initial stiffness has been overcome.

Yeah, I'm really liking the 55g but I think it will take a little bit to get used to. Probably just needs a little breaking in!

LOL! ^-^ True, I'm leaving things as they are right now, swapped out the black space bar on my HHKB with a blue one and they do look good in 'person'. Trying to get some other WASD and Esc key caps in other colors as well. Not an easy thing in my neck of the woods.

Wish I could, dude, wish I could......but, my Topre RF is a 103 key keyboard, the space bar is a tad longer than the standard space bar on a 104 key keyboard. I could also paint it yellow, but it's pretty hard to get the exact tone.......though I am thinking about it.

So I think I'm a fully topper convert now with this type s, but I got a RF AE55g at the same time, so I thought "hm, I like these RF caps..."

As you know, I've tried cup rubber a couple times before with the 45g and 55g uniform RF and it just hasn't quite clicked.  But this type s hhkb is what I want.  Nice, but quiet thock, good tactile feel and not obnoxious.  The price is still redic, but then again I traded the quite ridiculously priced lz-gh I had for it, too.

I just wish I could keep these caps and sell the AE55g because I don't think I'll use it that much.

There is definitely a big difference in typing feel between a 45g HHKB and a 45g Realforce. After adding dental bands, lubing and 55g rubbers to my HHKB, it's pretty much perfect for me.

I really like this...

TJ, I like both looks, but after you get acclimated to the layout of the HHKB, I would suggest switching back to the original blank caps.  They look a little better, IMO, and they make you a better typist, since you are forced to touch type and never look down again.  The trickiest part is learning to touch type the number row, but you will eventually get the hang of it.  I have to admit however, that typing my passwords is still a royal pain in the arse for me (cuz I use numbers, letters, caps, and symbols, like ur supposed to do), and I switched over to using blank keycaps like three months ago.  So the learning curve is steep, but it's worth it.  I feel like a real typist now.  (and a real hacker, lelz)  (see I even use the 1337 sp34k l!ng0).

And here are some pics of all of my Topre keyboards:

Hey longweight, how did you remove the logo?
I'm also interested to hear how longweight got the logo off.  Can you tell a difference in the texture where the logo used to be?

I've been cleaning up a bunch of older keyboards and noticed Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Clean-Eraser-Cleaning-8-Count/dp/B001339ZMW) took off marks very easily, so I would venture a guess that it might take the label off with enough elbow grease.  Also thinking toothpaste or some other type of rubbing compound might do the job without marring the textured surface too much, or making it shiny and smooth.

I dampened the sound with some foam inserts, so it's got a nice thock to it. Definitely changes the feel imo. From a plastic case to metal, feels much more dense.

Quite hard, actually (twss).


The main reason being that the slider housing is built into the top of the case. You cant have metal sliding against plastic. So you would need to kill a Realforce to steal the housings, essentially.


Unless you can get parts, or kill an RF.. it aint gonna happen.

I took the silver case too but with white set keycaps. I don't like the 10th keycap on the silvercase like in their picture.
The graphite one looks great with a 10th keycap set tho.

Oh could you also test the usb port ? can you put some externall dd on it ? or is it like hhkb ? can't test it right now and never bothered...

My (potato) pics are somewhere on this thread if you want to see white keycap on this silver case : http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=40658.msg904061#msg904061

would it kill the Koreans to make an HHKB aluminum case?  I mean how hard can it be?


Quite hard, actually (twss).


The main reason being that the slider housing is built into the top of the case. You cant have metal sliding against plastic. So you would need to kill a Realforce to steal the housings, essentially.


Unless you can get parts, or kill an RF.. it aint gonna happen.
Yeah, this. I was gonna maybe try and make one, then I ran into this problem.

Yes. If you message him and ask for a deal on more than 1 case, he will do it. Also, free shipping from Korea. Pretty fast, too. Got them within a week or so.

Detachable cable mod on my 87u 55g. One thing I don't like about Realforce keyboards is the fixed usb cable. So I decided to make it removable. I used a StarTech usb a to mini b 1ft. female cord. I cut the a end off stripped the cable and soldered a header plug that fit ( 2.5mm pin spacing) or the original if you cant find one. The cable was from Tiger Direct but I have seen them on Amazon they are less than five bucks. Now I can change keyboards in seconds.

does the new case affect the sound and/or feel of the board?


I dampened the sound with some foam inserts, so it's got a nice thock to it. Definitely changes the feel imo. From a plastic case to metal, feels much more dense.

Just got a Type Heaven, swapped out its stock ABS key caps with a set of blue PBT ones I had gotten much earlier, feels good. There is a sound and feel difference between the stock ABS and PBT ones, definitely can hear the difference. Also grabbed a used white HHKB Pro 2 while I was at the mall (met the seller near the mall), so I now have four Topre KB's.....I have a 103UB-55G that's not in the pic. Typing this post with the Type Heaven and it's pretty good, near what my Realforce feels like....except perhaps the Type Heaven has a lighter actuation force.

Thanks guys, four is enough for me.....will be looking for MX Clear, White and Gray keyboards from here on. I already have mechanical keyboards with MX Red/Black/Brown/Blue/Green/Clear, will be going for other switch types. BTW, of the four Topre, I'm using three of them as my daily drivers for three rigs.....along with a Leopold FC660M Clear and a Keycool 84 LED Black.

Since you have 4 which is your most favorite and why? I only have 2 Topre's a RF 87u 55g and HHKB Pro 2 and I like both but when it comes down to it the HHKB is my favorite of any keyboard.

For me, it's about the feel and the typing experience, and I've always been a sucker for heavier switch types, hence the 103UB-55G is my fave (wanted to get an 87U 55G like yours, but couldn't source one at the time). Now, IF I can lay my mitts on a HHKB 55G, it'd be a given that would be my fave......the HHKB Pro layout is boss imo (granted, it takes some getting used to).

That is what I hope to do when I have the funds is to put some 55g domes in a HHKB Type S but I would have to get both RF 55g + the HHKB to do that. Others have done it and say its not hard to accomplish, the cost is the hardest part.

Padawan, how do you like your Leopold clear? I work in a small open office space and want to replace my Blues for something comparable but not clicky.

It's stupid hard to find Clears in a smaller, tenkeyless layout.

Typing on my Clear now, it's like a Black but with a bump and the spring is very responsive. If you can deal with Black but prefer a bump, then Clear would be right up your alley. As I've said, I love heavier/stiffer switch types which is why I am not keen on Blue and Brown anymore. Please bear in mind that while Clears do not have that 'click', it isn't exactly quiet especially if you bottom out the stroke.....like me. I enjoy the noise actually....

Topre RF keyboards in white really have that old skool thing going, like the looks but can't justify another Topre.....I might crack and get an FC660C though as I'm into 60%, depends on what the local distributor's  going to sell it at....price-wise that is.

Do the higher keycaps have much impact on how the keyboard feels?  I am thinking of something like the difference between OEM and Cherry profile keycaps on MX switches.

I just got the board today but yes.  The rows seem closer than on my 91u.  What I am really noticing is the deep spherical on the home row.  I really like sphericals.  These are super deep so they take some getting used too.

Oh snap!  Busted.  I guess I gotta buy moar Topre keyboards.  lol. 

The problem is that the only Topre keyboard that I want to buy right now is another HHKB Pro 2 Type-S.  Which seems a bit redundant.  But I might get one for the wife if she will agree to blanks.  The aluminum case looks cool, but IMO, it doesn't do anything to improve the typing feel of the keyboard.  But that won't stop me from getting one.  So who knows?  Also my keyboard budget is weighted heavily towards Clacks, so that is also a problem.

I posted it in the other thread but I totally forgot to post it in here! I got my Realforce 87UB with 55g! I'm absolutely in love with it! I always thought they look somewhat plasticy but holy cow does it feel solid! It's most definitely probably one of the heaviest keyboards I've owned, especially at this size! Not only that, the entire thing just feels like a tank. The switches are somewhat stiff but they feel so poppy, and are just pure fun. However, I tested it at work today, where I type furiously for 4-6 hours straight, and I must unfortunately report that it's impossible to type on this thing at a fast and accurate rate for long periods of time :( BUT... I don't think I'll be able to sell it either because I love it for typing at home...... I guess, I'll have to give some more time before deciding. It's so good, and goes perfectly with my 23UB :P

Do eet! They are freaking great! I kind of want a white one too but I can't afford to get another numpad :)) I would have no use for it... even though it'd go well with my white Filco.

Just received a Realforce 104UB-DK in the mail today.  The uniform 45g keys feel way better than those on a Type Heaven.  This is as good as it gets for me.

Dood, that thing is sweet. Very jelly of your board. I definitely need to get a hold of a fullsize Variable weight and do that theme.

Thanks!  The good thing about it for me is that it is a uniform 45g.  The variable weight is what turned me off from 104 Realforces in the past.  The Type Heaven is decent, but just feels too stiff... even with PBT caps.

You could but it would be a lot of work unless someone already has it running for the Soarer Converter... and I don't really have any interest in doing so. I bought it for the chance  to try an old industrial Topre product as well as a few interesting keys.

Hehe ~ I have smaller hands and type with my hands at a wider angle so the flipped spacebar makes contact with my thumbs more naturally. If you're talking about the texture/look of the spacebar, it's because I put tape on it huhuhu ~

If you find that the bottom edge of you spacebar cuts into your thumbs, like it does for me, you might want to do that ASAP, as it'll alleviate much discomfort. I find this issue to be more obvious in Topre spacebars than on Cherry's.

:thumb: I was going to say, "Think of it this way: You have around $500 more in the bank than I do," but then it seems you have already purchased the Slimblade, and you're willing to spend $300+ on the 55g :)) Remember that the white 23U is still readily available, and so are some other Realforce key cap set colors. It's also a good thing you don't care about green because if you did, you' d have to find someone who's selling, as no vendors have had them in stock for awhile now.

Then it will be keycap fiesta (Topre style : ULTRA LIMITED CHOICE). And the 23U is white only unless VERY lucky. Sooooo... But then my FC660C WILL LOOK WEIRD AROUND THEM. Yep.

Nice one.  Good that someone saw past ditching money on HHKB's and Realforce's for something a little more unique  :thumb: .

If you find that the bottom edge of you spacebar cuts into your thumbs, like it does for me, you might want to do that ASAP, as it'll alleviate much discomfort. I find this issue to be more obvious in Topre spacebars than on Cherry's.

I have indeed noticed it cuts into my thumb. Not sure if it's just a positioning thing (I'm getting used to the size and everything still) or if it's just because I'm typing so much more now though!  :p

Detachable cable mod on my 87u 55g. One thing I don't like about Realforce keyboards is the fixed usb cable. So I decided to make it removable. I used a StarTech usb a to mini b 1ft. female cord. I cut the a end off stripped the cable and soldered a header plug that fit ( 2.5mm pin spacing) or the original if you cant find one. The cable was from Tiger Direct but I have seen them on Amazon they are less than five bucks. Now I can change keyboards in seconds.

I know that by quoting a relatively old post I may not get an answer but it's worth a try.  How do you ensure that when you're soldering up the header plug you get the wires in the right order?  I've managed to source a USB mini b female cable (http://"http://uk.startech.com/Cables/USB-2.0/Mini/1ft-Mini-USB-2-Cable-USB-A-to-Mini-B-Male-to-Female~USBMUSBMF1") - does anyone know if this (http://"http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/StarTech-6-inch-USB-2-0-Cable-USB-A-Female-to-USB-Motherboard-4-Pin-Header-F-/300986843279?pt=UK_Computing_USB_Cables&hash=item461436c08f") would fit for the header end of things?  If not then any idea of where I could source something suitable with wires attached (or without and the ability to get the wires separately) in the UK?

This has always been one of my favorite color themes to do with a HHKB. Something about a black case with white/grey lettered caps and a red escape just looks so right. Dunno about that black WASD tho :P Honestly, no WASD would be preferrable, IMO, but if you must, get a lavender WASD ;)

It's been covered so much on these boards that your overall spending would be higher on a Cherry board if modifications are involved, such as case, caps, etc.

I can confirm this as well. I've tried pretty much every Cherry switch and yet I've finally settled with the 55g Topre switch.

Cherry MX is by far more of a "wallet hack" than Topre. With Cherry MX, you end up with 5+ keyboards ranging in prices from the $55 QFR to the $500 Korean custom. Let's not even begin with the amount of aftermarket keysets you end up purchasing.

You can spend $250 on a new RealForce and be completely satisfied. You may end up purchasing another Topre board for work, but that's pretty much where it ends for MOST Topre users. As I have experience with many Cherry MX keyboards and now Topre, I can say with confidence that Topre boards are less of a "wallet hack" in the long run.

Yep! I am trying to get a non anodized raw aluminum one to anodize, if I can I'll sell you mine :)  Here's another shot with different lighting, I think color wise, it's the closest. Also, it's when I was removing the top case, so it's not flush.

It's a graphite.  I had a lot of light reflection in the first pic since it was taken on my desk with a light directly over it.

The Digilog one, right?

I really want one now, if only I had the funds   :))

Yep! I am trying to get a non anodized raw aluminum one to anodize, if I can I'll sell you mine :)  Here's another shot with different lighting, I think color wise, it's the closest. Also, it's when I was removing the top case, so it's not flush.

Oh geez... so gut. How much are these again? I'm going to regret asking :)) but really... that is just so nice. I should stop now lolol.

They were originally $450 shipped from Korea.  But, I messed him about how KBDMania has them coming for $226 and I asked to see if he would price match.  He then lowered the price to $240 shipped. Pretty good deal imo :) The back actually has a USB hub built in and the spot for a removable cable.

Oh man... if I could get that price on that case, I would consider selling some things I don't use to fund that... A removable USB cable would be amazing, and I could use the extra USB ports too... must plan... must plan... *sigh* Thanks for info ~

But I have news. My mother, after forcefully telling me "No I like my keyboard, I don't need to change".... she has told me she's jealous of how my keyboard sounds when I type at night, and thinks her keyboard sounds gross a mushy now in comparison. I've shown her videos on what some other keyboards sound like, got her to try the one MX Brown tester I have, and let her try my Leopold FC660C... and now she's in love with my board and wants a Topre of her own.  :p (She even was originally dead set on getting a backlit keyboard, but now she just wants a keyboard like mine.)

I just got this 87UW-45 and I just put the gray keys back on my 87USD-10th.
I think this 45g uniform is the best keyboard I've ever used.  It's so perfect. ^-^

The 10th anni edition is 55g yes?

You prefer the 45g over it?

Am I crazy for having blank keys on my HHKB (which I love), but also find myself lusting after the printed caps? I think the legends look so classic and professional. Elitekeyboards.com is a damn temptress.

Printed HHKB keycaps have that classic look - beige and gray.

Given all the fancy coloured keycap sets available now, that is so minimalistic it matches the HHKB layout.

The 10th is Variable weights.  It's hard to say which I like better.  They are actually pretty close.

I'm actually surprised the white one is out stock because they've been in stock for months and months. I'm sure they'll be stocked again in the near future.

The black one (23UB), you won't find unless you find someone actually selling one because they're discontinued and rare. Maybe there are Japanese suppliers but I don't know of any.

So I tried RIT dying some keycaps lastnight...

Here's what I had envisioned:
(http://i.imgur.com/0t21wft.jpg)

I used 2 packs of "purple" dye powder in 3L. Initially had only 1 pack in there, but wasn't seeing much colour change so added the 2nd pack later on.. sat it between 85-95c in a pasta pot (with strainer).

But here's what I actually got...
More
(http://i.imgur.com/83dCS3q.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/8i9v5UN.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/UkOfyyp.jpg)

I don't know why, but these mods just didn't want to take the dye! I only have this colour saturation after about 45 minutes in the dye! :eek:

Funnily enough though, I actually quite like the results. It's got a nice uniform tint, with a bit more red on the corners where I the caps were touching metal. It's added something really different. But there's always that bittersweet-ness when something doesn't turn out as you'd expected ;)

More experimentation is needed!

I don't really have any issues with it. Maybe my desire to fidget with it stems from all my tweaks on MX switches which improves the feeling. I don't know enough about Topre to know if any tweaks could make it better. I'll keep reading as much as I can.

Perfection! Ive looked through so many different boards and options and Ive ruled it down to the Realforce 87u for my next board.
Ive got a few questions. so i notice they have variable different weights on different keys, people prefer all 45 or all 55 correct?
Im used to browns with red orings. i notice they have a silenced option, is that the same as dental bands or something else?
I need it to be the same loudness or quieter, thank you. :)

Variable weights are better if you use the keyboard for mostly touch typing.

If your typing style is chaotic (like mine), or you use the board for gaming, uniform weight is much better.

Have you seen/heard this Topre mod (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=49046.0;topicseen) yet? Personally I'm a big fan of the Topre sound all around, but maybe with this mod and dental bands as well you'd have a super-silent Topre board.

Browns with red o-rings might be quieter than base Topre (if you're as heavy a typist as I am), but I found the actual pitch and sound of Browns to be grating.

So I actually added the salt this time... goddamn this took quick! Also reduced the water to 1.5L for a whole pack of navy blue. Was about 1m for the mods, probably less than a minute for the arrow cluster. Next time, less salt, a bit more water... hopefully strike it somewhere in the middle; with more control but only a matter of minutes rather than 45!

Looks kinda cool. I wonder how they would turn out if you used a muslin bag for the caps so they can stay suspended in the dye without touching metal.

Mmmm,

Well I haven't been perfectly diligent :S

I think Navy Blue is just too dark of a dye to be used at the concentration that I did. If it was diluted by 2 it'd prolly be much closer to the intended colour.

With the purple ones, I somewhat shortchanged the cleaning procedure and threw them in wet - rather than cleaning appropriately and allowing to dry. That might explain the lack of saturation on those.

All a bit of fun - the next time I try it out i think I'll run a few different tests with the same dye base - see if I can pin these issues to other parts of the process.

Ouch.. That's painful. Glad that you manage to get back a HHKB. Honestly, I often asked myself why I needed 5 keyboards(!) and have a few key caps on its way. Sigh.

Well, if you get an HHKB, you can actually save money, because you will find that you need only one keyboard.

Awesome, I am doing exactly the same! What do you think of the Leopold FC210TP? I'm about to buy the white one to match the white HHKB :)

I wanted a Realforce 23U but they seem to be pretty difficult to find, not to mention expensive.

Awesome! :) the Leopold is fantastic!!! It is built great, the stabilizers under the keys are way better then my rosewills number pad. I didn't know they made white cases, where can you find those? I have white blank keys coming for that as well but not pbt unfortunately :( I'd like pbt though! I was going to get the 23u but now I'm glad I didn't find one because the Leopold is way smaller like the hhkb and I can rock my mx caps!

I ended up putting mine in a slightly different arrangement on my Realforce 87U.  Adding those keycaps was purely a functional reason, since I occasionally have trouble typing the numbers with the black on black keys.  The rest of the keyboard is no problem.  I ended up really liking how the splash of orange looks though!

Like I did on mine

I'll play around with that.  I know it won't look nearly as cool since mine are printed compared to your blank caps, but maybe it will work.  Thanks for the advice guys :)
It'll look rad!!

lol.  Yeah, I've been looking for a Candy Corn Fn key since forever.  I know there were several made, but I've not been able to find one.  Total production numbers, I have no idea, but I would bet very limited, since you never see them.

Ah, so it is not for HHKB, meaning the Right Shift is not completely in place, is that right?

HHKB Only made Light Grey and Black. Printed and Blank.

Realforce Sets fit great, feel great, look great. You just have to figure out which keys look best to you. The right shift and right function will be a slight lesser angle then the entire row if you use r3 caps like I did. I think r3 caps look best in that spot. Feels fine though.

Changed things up today ~ HHKB went back to being standard clean, but 660C got some custom looks on the bottom row. Just put them on as they fit. Turned out alright. Could've used blanks instead of dome keys, but they were on the RF 87U so I didn't bother. Same thing applies to the Lime Green key on the HHKB; I could've gotten a key of same profile but they were all on the RF 87U.

Yeah. I type with my wrist down, which is a factor. Another factor is when I type, the end of my thumb is almost parallel to the spacebar, even when using my wrist rest, which raises my hands, so having it flipped still helps my thumb land more naturally. Having small hands would be another factor, I think. I assume this would not be the case for everyone.

Yeah. Thought I might as well take one for the team, seeing that no one really has it or has posted pictures of it. I can try to get some accurate pictures of it later on.
Remove the tape and let it Shine! EK has black Topre spacebars for $4.50 ea. I bought a few in case the rumors are true about no more replacement keysets from Topre.

Yeah spacebars are cheap man, no need for tape! I also bought a couple!

What is up with the spacebar on your RF?

Aside from it being flipped.

Lol! I was going to write it but totally forgot :))

It's because I have tape on it to prevent shining. I know it's hideous but it actually feels good and will prevent shining. It's worth it... if you can get over the hideousness of it :))

Also if you wouldn't mind.. Could you try adding a red key to ~ and also chuck on the red spacebar?

Will do the spacebar.

hehehe. Yeah, doods. I considered the option but I TOTALLY forgot to add one or two to my order when I ordered these :( Now I have to have a larger order to justify the shipping on the spacebars. I guess I'll just use mine and let it shiiiiiiiiiiiine... watch them go out of stock the moment I want a new one :))

I know for sure, if white ones come in stock too, I'll be sure to put in an order for 2 of each instantly.

So if CM doesn't sell regular topre switches with Mx stems will you guys buy a cm topre board and switch out the switches to your HHKB if you guys can? Or your topre realforce?

If we can get some in a HHKB/Realforce we are going to see some sexy boards in the coming months.

If those MX/Topre hybrid stems end up being all they're cracked up to be, it'd be silly to keep buying expensive Topre sets at twice the cost of MX sets

I know exactly what you mean. But considering me using Windows based OS for work, I'm thinking that the Realforce would be a better fit for it than the HHKB. but.....the Realforce is too nice to incorporate any clacks or gasmask on it.

Agree - arrow keys and Pg Up/Dn were the dedicated keys I missed most when I used my HHKB under Windows.  Using HHKB on Mac is much better because most Ctrl sequences work properly on Mac e.g. Ctrl-A and Ctrl-E for line start/end (instead of Home/End keys).

This is my Leopold fc660c topre tenkeyless mini keyboard, and this being the first topre keyboard I have used I just wanted to say it is nirvana for my fingers both typing and playing games(anything from FFXIV to BioShock Infinite to C.S. GO to LOL etc.) It is the ideal feeling while typing for me and it has helped me quite a bit as far as typing with all of my fingers and with increasing my wpm, my ability with touch typing, and it happens to be the most ergonomic key switch and keyboard that I have used. I currently do have some custom keycaps from a Realforce topre keyboard, they are red wasd and an escape key and I am waiting for a whole set of red caps with blank tops, so it does look a bit different now. I happen to like the red keycaps I have modded the Leo with, but everyone has their own preference.

I like the HHKB pro 2 as far as the compact design and the nice overall look that it is has. I wanted to know how it feels as far as supposedly the Realforce with the unifor weighting of 45g still feels different from the Leopold fc660c that I have with the same uniform weighting. I happened to get the Leopold for a few reasons such as desk space, I like the aesthetics of the keyboard, along with the fact that it was at a better price point. I actually could have gotten a realforce 87u with the variable weighting for about the same price from a seller and it was new. The main reason I did not was because as far as gaming a considerable amount I do not thing I would like the variable weighting in those situations. I believe now that it would be a great topre keyboard as far as for typing at least for my own preferences. Especially now that I type with all of my fingers and I know longer look down when I type. Now that I own the Leopold 660c I definitely believe that I will purchase one last keyboard to seal the deal as far as having one that I will use as my daily driver and then another for school possibly and when I travel between MA and CT. I think I would go with the 87u with variable weighting and or the 55g uniform weighting I have not decided as of yet. I have some Realforce red keycaps(blank) that should be in on this upcoming Monday. I could always use those on a Realforce for when I get one in the next few months.

Dood! That looks great! Glad to see you were finally able to get the red caps, and I like how you added the printed WASD cluster :thumb: That thing will start to feel even better after the domes start breaking in/softening up, or at least that's how I felt.

I am glad you like it man, I wasn't sure how I would like the red on red when I initially put the keycaps on, hence the reason I was looking to buy and or trade for some green wasd keycaps and maybe an escape key. I think it looks a lot better than the stock keys and they have a nice feel for pbt keycaps, and were a tad cheaper then the yellow and orange keycap sets. So, I am pretty happy with it. I absolutely still love this keyboard though and now that I have a bit of customization to it...I love it even more because now it is my keyboard. I really do appreciate you talking me in the right direction because other than clear switches and blacks, I do not see myself getting cherry keyboards anytime soon. Granted I like cherry mechanical keyboards and I love the customization they can have, but I feel as though topre switches are what I have been looking for in the game and outside. I am very happy with Leopold for making this keyboard with the topre option. Hope you had a happy new year man and thanks for the compliment  :thumb:

Okay so I did what a friend, vespersaint, did on here. He gave me the idea so the credit goes to him in this instance. This is the Leopoldfc660c with Realforce keycaps(red, blank)
(Attachment Link)
In comparison with the size of a more standard tenkeyless mechanical keyboard

Okay so I am not use to posting pictures through here, and I tried to insert photo in the spoilers as to make it look more neat. It was a bit different from other sites and I was doing something wrong, and I apologize if it pisses anyone off but I did try to fix, and now I gotta go shovel a foot of snow.

flip that space bar to it's correct position!

looks great btw, i <3 red

lol I prefer it when gaming actually, a friend said he found it more comfortable, and I have to say at least for me it definitely is. though it does not look as nice with the keyboard it is a preference, and thanks a lot. I was a little apprehensive about being all red this sharp, but I think it looks really good with the charcoal grey chassis of the keyboard. I was very satisfied with the expensive endeavor, now I am looking for a new mouse pad for gaming with, I use optical mice so I am looking for one that is better than the QcK. 

Also I have a sleeved cable coming in from Mimic cables and I cannot wait when it is equipped with this keyboard, and I would of learned to sleeve myself but I do not have the time at present, hell I am still trying to do a hard drive transfer of all the date from my girls old hard drive to another so I can put it in my moms pc build I am doing for her. It is almost complete just need a hard drive and a wireless adapter for her pc, and I still have to put in her dvd burner which is no problem. So much to do lately and so little time...I wish I was rich then I could pay for all the things I have been saving for, and then I could get stuff donneeeee

How are the rubber feet you added to your hhkb pro2 working out anyways? it looks pretty good, like it was build with them from the start. I happen to like the about my Leopold fc660c, the fact that it has the rubber pads on four points of the keyboards backside, and that it also has the rubber grips on the legs of the keyboard. I tend to type with the legs down so it is at a bit on a incline, and the rubber feet to the legs helps a lot with stability of the keyboard. Sometimes it is the small things on keyboards that add to the quality of the keyboard making it a great keyboard or just a good one. I believe the fact that the realforce and the hhkb pro 2 have the dye-sub pbt caps help make it already nicer quality keyboard then it is from having the topre switches, and the Leopold with the rubber grips in the right places, the dedicated arrow keys, and the pbt key caps(though pad printed) help it keep up with the other two at a better price point.

They work really well and make the keyboard basically stick to my desk. Since they're higher than the stock bumps, they raise the keyboard more than normal. I might move them to the back, on the sides of the legs, to reduce the height more.

I found a sheet of them in my garage, not sure where they came from. These (http://www.amazon.com/Self-Adhesive-Rubber-Feet-Black-Bumpers/dp/B003IJRZ6C/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1388976977&sr=8-4&keywords=rubber+feet+adhesive) look very similar though.

I think the BIRD wrist rest is pretty nice actually. Leather surface is very smooth, the wood underneath looks great, it doesn't slip around with the foam and it's not big to the point where it's unusable and unproportional to the keyboard itself.

Okay so I posted a little while back my Leopold fc660c with custom key caps for a realforce topre board, they were red pbt key caps, blank, excluding the wasd which were dye-sub pbt. I just wanted to say I ordered and received a sleeved paracord cable from Mimic-cables.com and it is beautiful both in quality and color pattern. I will be posting pictures as soon as I can get my usb cable back to plug into the pc, I had some decent pictures but the quality of color seems a bit weak and faded than it should be. The color scheme I went with was the red/black pattern, and there was a back wait of almost a month until order to shipped.

Which through communicating with T.J.(mimics owner I assume, and the one that crafted the cable for me) was a really great seller, and took the time to respond to every question or inquiry that I had. It was overall top notch experience, and the fact that I ended up getting the cable in roughly two weeks, which was half the time I was told initially was just a great surprise, and he is very good at crafting sleeved cables of all types.

I highly recommending anyone that hasn't the time to learn how to sleeve your own usb cables, along with other mechanical keyboard mods, to check out his webpage, and since he is a member of this community you could always inquire about his work through the community. He has a decent amount of patience because I am awful waiting for a item that I have ordered and I am also highly inquisitive about keyboards, modding, and tools of the trade which again he showed a lot of tact responding to me as soon as he had time. This looks great with my topre keyboards, and he also makes cables for the Realforce users and owners in this thread. After I am able to edit this post with some pictures of the keyboard completed then I will link his site for anyone newer to this site and community so that they may check his work out if they are interested. Anyway overall I am very happy with the keyboard's final look. the red/ charcoal grey/black color scheme is classy yet stylish in my opinion and I hope you guys like the look and colors I went with. Until later then take care gh. :cool:

Because I absolutely love the leopold, but would definitely like to be tying with a little more resistance, and as far as the digilog cases I would have to agree. I am planning on first buying the realforce with 55g uniform resistance and then if loving it like I imagine I will replacing the housing with the metal cases because they be pricey but they look fantastic. Have you decided which color you would want for replace the case? I think I like the red but the grey slate color looks really nice too. I do not know if they have anymore colors than that since I have not researched it as much with out having the realforce it would just make me ubber depressed.

Yeah it has a really nice stylish but classic look, and I mean having those usb hubs on the side of the keyboard housing like that would definitely come in handy for someone like me who has a lot peripherals to connect. I cannot wait to save up and get a 55g version of the Realforce 87 keyboard. Anyways, it is saddening to think of how much time it might take to save up for this keyboard. Now, hopefully I can purchase one around March this upcoming year because it is just after my birthday at the end of February

I think the digilong cases have been discontinued on Ebay a red case is listed as "last one" for $199.99. Although they look pretty they are chunky and more than twice as thick than the stock case. The Realforce TKL has one of the lowest profiles that I become very fond of.

They seem to be no longer stocked. I've looked for them on ebay but no luck.

I think the super weight, color, and USB ports were the main reasons I wanted it. However, like you said, I also adore the low profile of the stock case, which is what ultimately saved me the $250 hee hee. Who knows, maybe in the future, better and more affordable aluminum cases will come out.

Vesper I feel like you are always giving me bad news man, I swear I am looking for key caps for my Leopold and you tell me they are discontinuing them lol. So, in a way you may be a messanger with bad news but at lesast because of you informing mew the way you did I now have some nice red custom key caps modded onto the leo. I just wish I got into buying the topre switch keyboards sooner then I did because I get worried that by the time I get enough to get the 55g uniform realforce keyboard there will be next to none for customization options available. OR, worse they stop making the 55g resistance version of the board. Gods why did my wifes pc have tp start kicking the bucket now of all times...It wll be months before I can purchase one for myself and that is just a scarey thought for me because I know that I would absolutely love that keyboard

LOL! Just bad timing/luck, bro :P Your timing on those red caps was clutch because they went out of stock right after you bought them.

I wouldn't worry about the 55g, but they do go out of stock every now and then, and they don't restock for another 4-6 months at a time. So there's that. Get it though, the 55g is god-tier thorpe. Best thorpe.

My PC recently is acting up too; the native/C: hdd is clicking every now and then and PC hangs up until it stops. I had to leave my PC off for 3 days while I backed up my externals on a larger external so I could clone my C: to the same size external... ugh....

That is bunch of crap I would not of wanted to do, and I figure right now with her pc until I can actually afford to build her a new rig all together, that I will buy her some more of her crappy 1333 ram so that she at least has 8 gbs, and then I will do some measurements of her case and see if I can fit a 760 in there. I am actually going to buy her an 8gig stick of 1600mhz so that when she gets the rest of her components and case that I can just transfer the ram over to the new rig along with the gpu. It will be alright because for her rig on what she has to replace including gpu it will only be about 650. She will be able to play any title of game she wants on 1080 and high to max settings, which is what she is worried about because of the new detail coming out from wow next expansion. Well, I hope your pc is up and running better than it was, and I have had to deal with too much stuff concerning hard drives between my girl's, mother's, and my own hard drive.

I definitely did get lucky on the red key caps for the RF and I am very very satisfied with the outcome of the overall aesthetics of this keyboard not to mention with the ergonomic feel it has while typing, like every key switch is just quality to my fingers.
