Help Finding HHKB SA Keycaps
« on: Fri, 29 March 2019, 12:48:05 »
Hey Guys!
I'm looking to build an HHKB Layout MX Board and was looking for Caps. I currently use SA Profile and would prefer to stay with it. Are there any readily available SA sets out there with support for the HHKB split backspace? I couldn't find any on KBDFans, only some EPBT sets.
Thanks in advance!

1up is selling a PBT SA set (not sure who's the manufacturer) for $75 that will cover your layout properly, https://www.1upkeyboards.com/shop/keycaps/pbt-sa-control-code-keycap-set/. There is also the few SP doubleshot ABS SA sets Oco. has but be prepared for sticker shock here, https://www.originativeco.com/collections/vendors?q=Signature%20Plastics. However while looking around for affordable SA sets with decent compatibility it looks like the newest MAXKEY SA sets do have support for split backspace & the R4 1u Fn key needed to support a HHKB layout, https://kbdfans.cn/collections/maxkey/products/bfcmmaxkey-blue-gray-sa-keycaps-set. So personally I would go with the PBT Control Code set 1up has or wait it out for someone to restock the newest sets of MAXKEY SA. While IMO SP doubleshot ABS SA is the best SA caps available I would not be willing to pay the ransom Oco, is asking for them. Hope this helps you out! :thumb:
