I'm doing the same mod this week! Can't wait.

Best of luck! I hope you get it done swiftly and without issue. It's an excellent mod once it's done. During; not so much.

That can be said about any mod haha

The rubber band mod is extremely easy to do and does just about the same thing ;).

Yes you can, just put yours on backwards as well. It's personal preference, but many people think it feels better that way.

VesperBro, I don't have the audio setup to do a sound recording, and I am unable to compare it to another RF 87U, so I'm not sure if it would add anything.
I will however record a couple of videos and see how it goes. The rattle being gone is the best part of the mod for me; the silencing is just an added bonus. You should really do the mod if you have the time and will to punch all those buggers ;)

Ah~ There is no pressure here, good sir! However, if you get the chance, I'd be more than willing to watch :D That rattling part is very intriguing. Ughh!!! The temptation is strong. Will consider greatly. Only thing holding me back is that I like it how it is, and it's hard to imagine it getting any better but many people have said it is...

I believe you when you said you are done with keyboards.

It's just that you will start collecting clacks and brobots and gasmask. They look really well in Topre boards, you know!  :thumb:

Red control key - keep an eye on this thread - chongyixiong seemed to indicate that there might be another 5 sets at some stage.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Apparently RIT changed their formula and no longer works well with PBT.  So we have to either find their older inventory or try another brand (some have mentioned 'iDye').

See this thread:
http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=56376.0;topicseen

Also o2dazone had a thread somewhere with some tips on how to apply dye to caps.

I got an extra set of blanks and a set of throwaway PBTs to try it on, but I haven't gotten the dye yet and want to do a little more research first. :)

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Nice board rowdy!! And love the new avatar!

I think my HHKB looks better without that black stripe. Sorry Macross-inspired-theme.

I think your keyboard would look better without that yellow Clack on it.
