hoggy,

Thank you for your contributions to keyboard ergonomic knowledge.

I don't think I'd want to meet the creature that would be comfortable using that last position.

My original thought was that I got a Friday afternoon special. Comfort haven't replied to my email...

The stand looks good, but slides into the keyboard in the wrong direction. I'm not impressed frankly.

It could be fixed easily by gluing a stopper to the underside of the board once the stand is inserted.

If you need a keyboard with very low activation force, then maybe. Otherwise avoid.

I should mention that I didn't buy this new, so it's fair enough that comfort haven't returned my email.

For some reason, the photos reminded me of the Toadies from Chorton and the Wheelies.

Can you be off topic in your own thread?

Can the rails on the underside of the keyboards be unbolted and rotated 90 degrees? I see what looks like allen bolts, but it seems like the holes wouldn't let you rotate them. Its the only thing that looks like it could have been a mistake though.

They don't want to budge.  They look like allen bolts in the picture, but look smooth in person.  I suspect they are press-fit.  The 2 pieces of protruding plastic (looks like a : in the picture) are definitely there to stay.

In fact looking at this picture (from the fen-tek industries site)


It's pretty clear that it's not just my unit.

It's a shame.  The mounting system is simple, robust, allows infinite control over splay, and


I give up, perhaps the keyboard meant to slide off the stand... :(
