PBT ISO-IT caps: do they exist?
« on: Tue, 08 August 2017, 14:00:55 »
Hello everyone. I'm here to ask you a simple question: do PBT keycaps exist in the italian ISO layout?

I'm in the difficult situation of having to choose my next keyboard, and I'd really like a Leopold FC980, or a Cherry G80-1800, but neither of those can be found in the layout of my interest. The solution: get a generico ISO one and change keycaps. Sadly I haven't been able to find PBT keysets in ISO-IT.

I want PBT because Leopold already mounts PBT caps by default (don't know about the Cherry), so installing ABS ones would really be a downgrade, and at that point other options might become more appealing.

They do, I own one.

I'm not entirely sure about the G80-1800 but some G80-3000 can be surely found with ISO-IT PBT dyesub keycaps, the article number is SAI.

In theory G80-1800 should exist in ISO-IT layout, but as the G80-3000 I wasn't able to find it.

My set comes from a G81-3000 actually.

That's a hell of a lucky find!
