Be aware, the case is a ***** to dye.  It took a good 6 or 7 hours to get it that color since I didn't have anything I could do it over the stove with.  I was afraid it wasn't going to turn out well since it still looked pretty bad at hour 4 or so and was only mediocre at hour 5 or so.

I've got an idea that doesn't involve dying the case so it's fiiine

I've seen that posted around the forum a lot lately, so I'll just say here that the red goes particularly well with the black case.

Well done, nubbs! :)

This is kind of a necro, but rowdy pointed me to this thread, so throw all sticks and stones at him :)

Anyways, I got my Model M keyboard last week. The board looks really nice, but it is missing the label on the back. Does anyone want to take a guess what year it might be from?

Attached are a couple of pics, the front and the back (yeah, I know that USB/PS2 adapter won't work; Soarer's in the mail). Can something more be known from the outside, or do I have to open it?

It seems to be a bit of an oddball.  It has a detachable cable, which I only have on my white label ones, but it has a blue label.  Different case on the chassis of a white label?

And several ps2 to usb converters work perfectly fine.  In fact, even that one might.  I actually didn't know there was even an issue with ps2 to usb converters until I found GH.  Mine always work.

Looks like it's that mod that phosphorglow does where he puts a thin sheet of colored plastic to give it a subtle hit of color. And not just Ms in here.

He might also have just painted the plate haha but I like phosphorglow's mod. I think it's clever.

just curious, have anyone tried adding led to M? lol

Phosphorglow's added the lock LEDs but I haven't seen a full LED M yet.

should looks quite cool with some subtle white led since the gaps are quite big.

Yeah its just sanded and painted. It was in pretty nasty shape when i got it. Basically i pulled it all apart and cleaned it with bathroom cleaner. I was able to save the foam which was good. The plate had to be sanded and primed and I opted to go with a hint of color. Wired up a Teensy 2.0 to the board and loaded up TMK i think and remapped some keys so that left shift and enter were in the right places for where my pinky's were hitting. I'm going to make a proper plastic molded usb port for the hole that was left from the oem cable and mount the teensy properly. I'll toss up some pics of that when i'm done.

Model M with industrial case from Unicomp's overstock sale. Disregard the pro2 in the background, unless of course you're into that sort of thing ;)

Does it bother your co-workers?

Also - right Shift a lighter shade of green then left Shift.  Go Unicomp!

Nope, they think it is ammusing.  I work in a food lab, so ther are scientists coming and going, so no one has to sit nearby and listen all the time.  And yeah, Unicomp for consistancy in colors.  At least they are cheap.  I was tempted to buy another set to see if I could get two that are closer in color but the difference is slight to the naked eye.  It looks much worse in photos.

I have actually seen a couple of sets where they are both the same colour, but most of them are not.

Quite a few people didn't realise until I pointed it out, but it was blindingly obvious to me as soon as I opened the box.
