G81-8000HPCUS-2 Black Cherry Double shots $25 shipped per set

I'm talking to the seller about these now. They apparently have over 100 of these available. I think I could get these in bulk for $20 shipped pretty easily. I could then redistribute them for around $25 shipped (USPS flat rate box) for 1 set.

Does anyone know if the control/alt keys are center stemmed? If they are, this is a great donor board. The only thing it would be missing is the centered caps lock.

These are from used POS machines so most of these keys will probably be shiny, but at $25 it still seems like a steal.

Please post here with how many sets you would be interested in and I will see what I can do. If there's not enough interest, no worries. If there is lots, we may be able to snag the entire lot.

no, I bought two of them. The bottom row is offset, as is the caps lock key (which I assume that you already anticipated.)  The space bar is completely different as well and will require some serious modding to work, although it is the same length as a regular Cherry MX board or Filco etc.  You'll need a full moogle kit to make these work, alternately see my post here if you are OK with the epoxy:

http://geekhack.org/showthread.php?20990-My-own-anti-otaku-Filco-(w-modem-burning-pics)

One of the boards I received the main part of the board was actually less worn than the keys I used, which were off a keyboard that I was the first user of and I used it for maybe 4-5 months before getting sick of the MY switches (they really do suck.)  The other was pretty shiny.  Both showed signs of serious use of the numpad, just so you know.

That said, if you could get them for $25 apiece, that plus a moogle kit wouldn't be bad.  You probably would have got more interest while the moogle kit GB was still going though...

It is still nice as it has the proper Delete, End and Page Down.

I'd be down for a set if you want to ship to Quebec, Canada.

For 25 plus is not so bad.

Feel free to PM me if anything.

Thanks BiNi!

You are absolutely correct, for the price it's not a bad deal at all - especially if you are planning on hunting down some RGBs or something.  I was just posting for the edification of others.  Also, the bottom row aren't doubleshots at all.

On the upside, the space saver boards are even worse donors - reference the pics in my previous post for all the keys off THOSE that won't work on a standard 104 or tenkeyless board.

And I should have mentioned in my post that I bought two boards off eBay with the same part number; I didn't check to see if it was the same seller or not.  So my comments on shininess may or may not apply to these boards.  Although being POS boards, I think it's fair to say that it's a good bet they've seen some use.

Biniaris, is this happening? I'd definitely be in for one, but in a semi-timely fashion. If you're too busy for this to come together, let me know.
