hi for first time
« on: Tue, 07 May 2024, 05:16:31 »
hi from canada indeed (and yes don't ask about the very strange weathers thats been happening ever since november!)

basically looking to get a mechanical fullsize keyboard soon for sure, still can't decide about the keycaps but thinking to just custom-order a set, etc
..hoping to do a few posts elsewhere on this forum for that reason :-)

Welcome to geekhack :)

there are some pretty good options for full sizes, if your just looking for a very basic full size, than very few things beat a model m or a uni comp buckling spring board, they are very nice.
keyboard collection - fjell
cherry blacks - unlubed - filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - alu Plate | pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.
| hhkb bt
lubed with tribosys 3203 | like topre a lot, prefer it lubed but did make less tactile but that might have been a skill issue. probably will get more tactile over time as the domes age.
| m0115
bad orange alps lol | definitely needs a restoration. planning on wax boiling them and maybe a replacement pcb because the board has only 2 key rollover apparently.
| praxis
gateron yellows - lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.
| camo filco
stock with silent reds | Pretty cool looking board, the silent reds are actually good, they are smooth and I don't mind the mushiness (it's not even that mushy as well). the layout is pretty weird, but is useable. will probably mod this in the future. maybe a pcb and plate swap, change the keycaps to something dolch like, and also spring swap the springs in the silent reds.
