[MO] AZERTY keycaps for IBM from Unicomp
« on: Tue, 24 May 2011, 06:11:19 »
I wanted to get some azerty keycaps for BS keyboards and buy them from Unicomp.
As the shipping cost is, prohibitive, i'm looking for others french Buckling Spring users to get a mass order and reduce shipping costs (maybe price too but i don't think we will have enough orders ...).

PS
i don't think Strauss Kahn will fit the package :-) so don"t even think about it...
Realforce 105 FR, HHKB Pro 2 black, 1 Raptor K1 Black Cherry and 1 Raptor K1 Red Cherry , Compag MX 11800  tBrown Cherry, G80-3000 Clear Cherry , G80-1000 Blue Cherry / Ghetto red, Lexmark 1992 SSK Buckling spring, Unicomp 2011 Customizer 102 Buckling spring
and a few rubber dome/scissors keyboards from Apple/Logitech

Why do you need to get a full AZERTY set -- IBM Model M and F are all the same height no matter what row of the keyboard you're on. You just need to swap them around (move the A to the Q etc.). There are of course some different symbol keys but you wouldn't need to order the majority of the board.

Really ?
I feel stupid i didn't knew :-)

There's still some problems with the number row and the special character but it'll be easier right now.
Thanks a lot

I keep the Mass order.
