tai hao Nordic key caps
« on: Thu, 01 August 2019, 02:29:31 »
Hi Folks,

Its been a while since I have posted here.  Ive moved countries, bought a house, sold a house, built a house.. very busy,  I digress.

I am trying to source the Miami and bumblebee Nordic option sets but I dont seem to be getting much success.

I tried messaging Tai hao directly but i think its all lost in translation. 

So i'm now deferring to the folks who started me on this crazy train.

As always thanks in advance.

I found the one for the Miami https://shop.tai-hao.com/products/pbt-43-key-international-key-set. But not for the other one. It seems the Miami one is the only available.

I've written to their CS team, see if theirs any chances - i think my only other option after this is hoping to find someone selling the option keys form a purchase or second hand..  Im not hopeful.

Thanks for helping though.

Not a very good picture of my ISO/Swedish Ducky Shine 3 (109 keys).



In sweden we have this  3 special letters: (right side of "L"), (right side of "") and (right side of "P").


A better picture.

Would this 155 keycap set work?

or alternatively, if buying the taihao modifier works as well, you can buy the modifier and pair with ur choice of taihao keycaps

I can't read chinese but the keyboard/keycaps are in ANSI layout and ANSI Enter and ANSI Left Shift don't fit on a ISO/Nordic keyboard. I have some old ISO/Nordic keyboards (I don't use them anymore, hard to find good lookin ISO/Nordic keycaps sets, so I only use ANSI keyboards).

Yeah.. Probably the Nordic keycap prints are not common in china... The links can be open in Google Chrome with translate on as well to help u navigate the options... But would be a bit daunting on the layout initially.... Would see if I can find any nice Nordic layout by searching online... Let u know if I find any

Thanks but I don't use any of my old ISO/Nordic keyboards anymore, I only use ANSI keyboards right now.


Here is my ANSI Miami keycaps set (104 keys on a 108 keyboard, had to use F1-F4 from my second set to get 108) with matching USB cable.



EDIT: There was a Miami ISO/UK keycaps set but out of stock: https://www.google.se/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=16&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwidtuqwsO7jAhVyw4sKHRpSC8oQFjAPegQICBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mechkeyboards.eu%2Ftai-hao-pbt-double-shot-keycaps-miami-uk-396-p.asp&usg=AOvVaw3_x-gkg38iA-eYKpysgss6

Thank you guys for trying.  I think I am just stuck with having the UK ISO layouts.

tai hao have not gotten back to me yet, as already discovered there is an international options kit form them so i remain hopeful.

I suspect I will just have to go back to using Ducky's own caps

There is a blank ANSI/ISO Miami set (104/105) here: https://www.google.se/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjs4rDj7fDjAhUBuIsKHafKChcQFjAAegQIAxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.aliexpress.com%2Fitem%2FFree-Shipping-NPKC-Blank-104-Keys-Miami-Thick-PBT-OEM-Profile-Keycap-For-MX-Switches-ANSI%2F32705820732.html&usg=AOvVaw0CtEBiQ7KSSIGGqpYjr6Wk

Don't know what Ducky keyboard you have, so you  been missin 4 caps if you have a 109 keys.

I thought I'd update everyone.

tai hao have the legend tooling for the nordic options but they will only provide them if a MOQ of 500 sets is met.

Oh well.

1. I bought 2 matchin Artisans caps for the Miami set for some years ago.



2. Get a Ansi keyboard. It is hard find 500 ISO/Nordic buyers.
