195740-0 [ Specified attachment is not available ]  Currently using a GH60Satan with cherry reds to try out a new keyset I got in the mail. For some odd reason I do like lasered PBT.

Current daily driver (until my Mars 8.0 arrives and gets build): A g80-3000, cut down to 70% cuz I need to save some space on my desk again. Only thing that sucks: No layers currently.
Case will be sanded and painted at some point to cover the stitches.

And perhaps also sanded, sandblasted before painting if you want to maintain that texture.

Currently using a Ducky YoTR(Year of The Rooster) with MX Blacks. I'll get pictures up soon enough.

Soon to be swapping back and forth with an IBM Model F AT. Two awesome boards!!

FYI, you can paint on acetone and use it like glue on ABS. You can also melt down some of the case scraps in acetone till a goo and use it as filler, then sand smooth.
Thank you guys, will take a look on both options and decide for one (or better both combined?!)!

Current workspace consists of Matias Laptop Pro (Matias Quiet Click) and Avid KB-654 (Cherry MX Brown).

I proxy anything, including keyboards (キーボード / 鍵盤), from both Japan (日本) and China (中國)!

First I've read of an Avid KB-654. That board looks like a very useful piece of kit to have around.

Avid does a lot of media composition and editing stuff, notably tools which are useful for post production, etc. A lot of their older keyboards are mechanical, I think the first I have seen was a clone of the Apple Extended Keyboard II (White Alps I think it had) with keycaps designed for their software. I own the Avid Mechanical User Interface that they designed which has Cherry M8 switches (which you can see here: https://deskthority.net/wiki/Avid_Mechanical_User_Interface). I bought the KB-654 a few years ago brand new for about $50. The keycaps are kind of cheap (laser engraved ABS) but they have a nice aesthetic to them anyways.

    Cherry MX silent stems in gateron transparant top housing with default cherry bottom Lubed with Krytox.
    Genuine Cherry stabilizers clipped and bandaid modded and lubed with super lube.

I love how silent and smooth it is. I finally got some use for the Cherry mx silent switches from the group buy that had production faults with the spring weight and stem color.

My batch of those silents are waiting for a new keyboard. Swapped in some 100g springs.

100 grams you have some muscle fingers. I swapped mine with regular mx black springs 60 grams.
