~Sifo's Keyboard Services~

Send a request here: http://servicerequest.sifo.ca

Hihi welcome to my service thread! It seems I'm one of the only Canadian modders around so if you'd like work done to your boards and you don't wanna pay the hefty price to send it to another country and back plus currency conversion, I'm the guy you're looking for. I'm located in Toronto, ON.

I do switch tuning (lube/spring/sticker), full assembly, board and LED mod and swapping, repairs, and whatever else you wanna throw at me. Can also help you with programming firmware stuff for your board. I'm also down to meet up if you're close by and want to try something that I have ^_^ Note that I am currently not very comfortable or interested in modding stock boards but drop me a message anyway.

I offer competitive pricing, If you're interested, please fill out the form or drop me a private message here. Because of the huge variability in each individual project, I cannot give out a list of pricing for every service, but instead I will personally send you a quote for what you need done. My rates also depend on how much work it is, and with the Canadian dollar dropping so much the prices are constantly changing.

I'm only going to accept 1 order at a time. This way I don't stress myself out by looking at a huge pile of work that still needs to be done, and you can be assured that I am paying my fullest attention and detail to your and only your project that you need done. I will also not undertake any project that I don't feel comfortable doing or am not experienced in. For those of you who have worked with me in the past, my prices will have gone up a slight bit because our dollar sucks. With that said, I accept CANADIAN DOLLAR. I am ONLY shipping to Canadian addresses. You can send me parts from where ever around the world, but I'm only going to send the final product to a Canadian address.

I will add a queue to the second post and move down in that order. If I get no response from the person within 48 hours I move down to the next person and the unresponsive person gets bumped down.

I use a Hakko 888D and for now a soldapult >_> which means working on stock boards (swapping LEDs especially) is a challenge. I prefer you supply everything, although I have a little bit of lube I can use for a little extra charge.

Below is a picture portfolio of previous projects! You can also read the comments for reviews. Note that some pictures may feature outdated equipment/set up. And sorry for the poor photography :P

GON NerD Acrylic + Text Review

My "super quick" review of Sifo and the board he built (GON Acrylic TKL):

Text Review:

Background:

More
This board, along with a hopefully soon Novatouch once I sell off some of my other boards to fund it, is my endgame setup. I knew it would be my endgame the moment I saw the "original", b7ad's GON Acrylic, which this is basically a carbon copy of (sorry, no originality here). The LEDs matched my Linux terminal colours exactly, the flathead screws and the whole "fresh out of the shop" feel was perfect and it was love at first sight.

I knew that to have a perfect board I would need to assemble it properly, since GON doesn't offer assembly of acrylic. At the time I only knew of Margo's assembly services, but the lovely exchange rate and Canada's super affordable shipping rates [/sarcasm] dissuaded me from shipping to UK.

Luckily I had begun checking out geekhack at the time and saw Sifo's artisan services, so sent him a PM and the rest is history. Probably one of the best choices I've ever made (not saying I've made many good ones in my life, but beside the point).


Review

-------------

Build Quality:

More
Some credit has to go to GON for making some of the best tuned switches... ever. He's getting a bit of flak from people over delayed orders, but it says a lot about how good the man is when everyone stops complaining once they have received it. I will still wholeheartedly recommend GON, he's a very patient, great guy when you talk to him... just multiply advertised wait time by four before you make your decision.

However, I give my main credit to Sifo for assembling the board so well as to do the switches the proper justice. His attention to detail is excellent and all the switches are perfectly aligned. I know this because my BSP Olivetti, which is known for having crooked keys, is *uniformly* crooked (BSP QC is crapppp but the texture is worth the pain) when placed on. Just to be sure, I put on my Vortex set and everything lined up exactly flush.

The board's frame is assembled perfectly, screws aligned flush, alu feet level. If I *had* to nitpick one thing it's that he put the stick on rubber feet (not the ones on the alu feet, there are two other ones you put at the other end of the board) slightly misaligned, but that's just my OCD and it has no discernible effect, I just think honest reviews should cover *all* bases.

10/10

-------------

Service/Communication:

More
I think this is the most important part of "reviewing" someone - their work is important, but more important is how well they communicate and let you know about your product. In this area, Sifo gets an 11/10. He replied all my PMs and texts promptly, but what was most impressive is that he PM'd me and told me exactly how the build was going and issues he encountered.

In particular, he mentioned that the aluminum housing layers did not align flush, but he tried many times to get them to line up. I probably would have never noticed if he did not told me, though even now that I know, I don't even think about it - it's that small of an "issue". The fact that he was willing to alert me about a "negative" aspect of his work that is fairly unnoticeable was a welcome sign of honesty and one of the things I value in folks. Too many times I've been burned on Kijiji or mechmarket from people who "forget" to mention minor defects - even though they make no difference, I really value full disclosure and I do it in all my own sales.

Furthermore, during our correspondence, I realized I forgot to ask him to clip the stabilizers, after he had finished assembling. He willingly went back and figured out a way to clip them (luckily, GON's plate design is genius and he was able to avoid desoldering), and even lubed the wires with his own lube. Best part was he did it all free of charge, notifying me right away when it was finished.

11/10 Son of a ***** even let me try his TH600 when I came to pick up my board!  :thumb:

-------------

The board itself (feel, use, look, software):

More
Acrylic is one of those materials that don't look great... until you light it up with LEDs. It's the main reason I chose acrylic (also, to save money T_T). In that respect, when the board is on full LED, it is god-tier. I'm huge on aesthetics and this board satisfies me completely.

Feel-wise, the switches are stellar. I was extremely impressed by Topre at the meetup, but I still think Ergo-clear 62g wins my heart. It's still not quite as "smooth/buttery" as Topre, but it just feels so... right. Where Topre gives each individual press a great feel, Ergo-Clears feel effortless - I can maintain a typing rhythm much better and the feel of the smooth lubed switch accompanied by the satisfying "clack" of the downstroke... Amazing. I still notice no difference with stickers, but it came included with the switch, and it doesn't make it feel worse, so can't complain.

The frame itself feels really good. Even though it's acrylic, there's a hefty weight to it, about the same as my TEX aluminum Poker II. There is some slight flex if you push super hard on the middle, but then again, so does my Cherry G80-3000 at work. I never actually type that hard to create that flex anyway. During normal (and even fast typing), the frame is rock solid, with no flex at all.

My only gripe is it's really freaking hard to find linux support for NerD_config and the board seems to have problem when booting directly into linux through syslinux. Probably affects only 0.1% of us since the rest of you are windows using plebs, but just something to keep in mind if you have read this far and are deciding on getting a GON.

9.5/10

-------------

Pics:

Still waiting on Ivan's R4 PBT and exchange rate to go down so I can get some doubleshot keys from elitekeyboards.

I love this board so much I took it to work for a long typing session. I've used it for about two days now, long enough to get a feel for it.

tl;dr: If you are in GTA and are incurably lazy like me or don't have good soldering equipment, Sifo is a superb choice for your assembly services.

Filco mod Text Review
More
Hey all! I recently had a Filco MJ1 modded by Sifo so here's my short review. Unfortunately no pics right now because I'm waiting on a cable from mimic and a few other small things to finish it up.

Sifo is super cool and friendly, I was kinda nervous as it was my first time meeting another geekhacker in person but that passed quickly after we started talking. I came to his side of town for drop it off, and he came to mine to deliver it back to me which was really nice of him.

I am very impressed by his work as well. To be fair I don't really have anything to compare it too, but it looks and feels phenomenal and I couldn't be happier. Sifo clearly puts time into his work and has excellent attention to detail.

Pricing was super fair too, it was nice to be charged in Canadian for once especially considering how crappy our dollar is atm. Turnaround was really fast (work was done within 3 days IIRC), although as Sifo mentioned that is liable to increase so don't expect to get the same speed in the future.

Overall, dealing with Sifo was a great experience and I would definitely recommend him to fellow Canadians for keyboard services.

Thanks Sifo!

Not updating this anymore, too lazy. I hope it's enough content and examples for you guys though <3

Again I live in Toronto and I'm available for local meet up ^_^ Otherwise you cover shipping both ways.

If you'd like to have cables as cool as mine visit http://mimic-cables.com

Tell them Sifo sent you ^_^


Disclaimer: I am not a professional or certified electrician, I do this as a hobby and not as a job, I'm simply looking to make enough money for my time. I do this for the Canadian community and for my love of keyboards. With that said, there is always a chance that I will make an error or mess up one of your boards. However I am willing to do what I can to compensate on the chance that something occurs, and I will be sure to work things out with you until things are right. Thank you.

I don't believe so. GH lube doesn't come with such a fine needle. I believe Sifo uses his own mix.

I do use my own mix of RO59 if people request it, but the standard is 70/30 krytox in the beta GH lube kit mkawa gave me like over a year ago. I have my own needles but this one came with it.

It's a super effective and thin needle, I don't need to use a brush at all anymore.

Too embarrassing to show photos of but I managed to ghetto fix a QFR's connector piece (the one on the actual PCB). The eyelets got ripped out along with the connector, but I managed to recomplete the circuit by trailing solder from the pins to the broken trace point :P typing on it now, seems to be working fine. Was a $5 repair job, was worried it would cost me more to fix it haha.

You're between 30 and 60 minutes drive from me (at a guess), and I was just about to write a post offering similar services. Hopefully there's room in the market for a little competition :P

Update on this I had to jumper wire the QFR connector directly to the pins on the controller. You can see where the old connector sat (pads got ripped off)

I have yet to find the time to put on caps and actually type on it. I'm behind schedule so I don't think I'll be doing that, I'd prefer to just get it out to Calvin asap. It was enough to have the pleasure of building it, I hope I can get myself a Viper or another Orion in the future.

Meanwhile, it looks like I'm gonna be building a kmac2 as well soon.

Awh what a nice keyboard! Just wondering when you clip the stabs off, does that include the space bars stabs as well ? :D
That clipped stab picture will help me when I fix mine :D

Yeah I do it for the spacebar too, but I don't think the spacebar matters as much for whether you clip them or not.
