The yellow case works really well with this keyset, gives off that vintage vibe. Nice photos! I think 1976 on the Ergodox is the most visually appealing.

...I might want to build one someday. I fear I will no longer want any regular keyboard though and I love my kustom and aluminum Realforce :(

Nice case and cable :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s 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

Wrist rest is just something I tacked together from scrap, but it works perfectly well.

yeah they bend slightly, it's not ideal, but they do stay at that angle.

If you can touch type using a standard technique? Maybe 30 minutes.
If you can't? In the order of weeks.
If you can't and don't even try? Never.

What about reading some posts in the Ergonomics subforum? Even the sticky threads there are fairly comprehensive, although slightly outdated.

Ergodone was pretty cheap, though I think that group buy is closed. You can get "fake" ergodoxes off Taobao for a low price.

Time to give ErgoDox some love

I am trying to figure out if this looks good or not if you guys could help. Canvas XDA came in.



Interesting keys and super hard to capture the color of the keys. like it just seems impossible without getting into Adobe and calibrating

This is what it looked like before
I just got wood.

In a strange way it looks really good on your ErgoDox . I find XDA quite ugly but in this case it looks good.

I am just not sure if i like the "piano" style of light caps on a dark case. I think i do like the caps though themselves, though.

So....

I rebuilt my Full Metal Ergodox that was really popular when the ergodox came out, it was one of the very few 2013 MD R1 full thick aluminum layer case that required filing and sanding. SHOUT OUT TO OUR NEW OVERLORDS

It has been sitting on my shelf for 3+ years broken from bad switch lubing when I had no idea what I was doing. I eventually ended up using the Infinity ErgoDox so I had no need to fix it. I decided to put Hako Trues on them after becoming a real big fan of the switches on another keyboard. This is a super solid typing experience. with the full metal frame and thick plate, each hand weighs the same or more as 60% board decked out with a CNC case.

probably nobody cares, but maybe someone will find this rebuild cool

I am going to put GMK Laser on it when that arrives

One day i will refinish the Kurplop beta tenting wrist rest after i messed it up really bad with trying to get rid of varnish. The glory days when OG ergodox were really hip on geekhack.....and before tp4 essentially scared away people from declaring the ErgoDox cool.

which still has support for programming the OG ergodox, it was a huge time saver!

in fact sorry for the double post, but here is what kurplop's wrist tent looks like right now. I seriously don't understand my laziness that led to this thing being packed away for 4 years and me not refinishing it. it probably one of the most original things i have in my collection.

I am using vi for many years and am loving it. I am trying to make ergodox layout that would follow the same principles: normal mode for movement and commands, insert mode for typing, you get the idea.

I am also struggling a bit with reachability of many keys. Only the closest button (space/enter on my layout) on the thumb cluster is really comfortable to press, the one next to it (backspace/delete on my layout) is already putting some strain on the thumb tendon and the others are just difficult. Surprisingly, I find it difficult also to press the innermost column of keys on each index finger (two vertical 2U keys + one 1U key on top of them), especially the 1U key in the corner. Originally, I put single-quote and back-tick on them, but as those are frequently used keys while programming in vi, I have moved them around quite a bit and numbers 5 and 6 ended up on those keys, now. Not sure how well will this setup work, will need to try it out for a while.

My current version of the layout is here: https://configure.ergodox-ez.com/layouts/vJzQ/latest/0

There is 13 layers, but some of them are unused (in order to get the LEDs shining the way I want them to for specific layers, e.g. blue led only for `qwerty` a.k.a "insert mode" layer). For this reason, they are in a bit weird order as well. And then half of them are just mirror image of some other layer, because I want to be able to type using just one hand - it seemed like an useful thing, but I never used it really, so if it becomes too much pain without real benefits, I'll remove them in some future version.

Really interesting are just 4 layers, displayed on the picture below in a sensible order (see above):
204974-0

Now, I am forced to use Mac at work for now, so the layout is Mac-specific. I am in process of getting Linux machine, so I plan to modify it for Linux then.

Also, I am a bit new to all this, so I still need to learn how to use QMK directly to write code specifying the layout. So that I can send multiple codes on single key-stroke (e.g. `C-a n` and `C-a p` for switching between tmux/gnu-screen windows, `C-w [hjkl]`, `C-w [HJKL]`, `C-w [_|=]` for manipulating vi windows, `:tabprev<CR>`, `:tabnext<CR>` for manipulating tabs, etc. - there is plenty of vi combo-hits to map: https://github.com/mareq/skel/blob/master/dotfiles/vimrc#L598 )

I am also thinking of getting it even closer to vi-like behavior by mapping e.g. `C-c` to Y letter in normal mode, but also e.g. maximizing window to `C-w _` (i.e. CTRL+W needs to switch layer, which maps underscore to maximize window shortcut used by window manager). Visual mode would be pretty difficult to do (if possible & practicable) - should V key in normal mode switch to separate layer, which makes SHIFT key depressed all the time (is something like this possible to do with QMK?).
