[WTS] Custom Filco (White, RGBY, ergo clears -- 62g)
« on: Sun, 04 May 2014, 21:30:04 »
Nothing to sell for now.

Hello all,
My MX stuff has been sitting around for a while after my recent conversion to the church of Thorpe, so I thought I'd clear it out. I put a lot of work into the filco, especially, so I hope it will go to someone who will really use it.

I will consider brobot and CC trades or partial trades for all items.

Proof of ownership for both items:
More


Custom White RGBY Filco (62g Korean springs, clear stems, IMSTO US INTL set, GMK RGBY mods) — $330 (shipped CONUS; intl buyers PM me for shipping quote)
BROBOT NOT INCLUDED!!! :P

Price breakdown—Filco ($150) + IMSTO set ($90) + GMK mods ($30) + Switches ($50) + Custom Plate ($30) + Springs ($15) = $365. Considering its condition, I think $330 is a bargain, especially since my estimates don't include soldering equipment/labor.

The aluminum "WFD" custom plate allows for switch top removal and easy switch customization.

I am also open to selling the IMSTO white US INTL set (included the pause key and the numpad keys, which aren't shown in the pic) for $90, and the RGBY set for $30 (both prices don't include shipping).

Sold:

JD40 ($190 naked; $220 with DSA retro set; + shipping)
This thing is practically unused. I was already a topre convert when I got it, so this thing has probably .5hrs max of use on it. It's a great little board, and I think I'd love it if it were topre. It's got MX browns (which I can swap out for vintage blacks (+$15), vintage blacks with brown stems (+$15), or blues). For an extra $30, I will let got the DSA retro set that's currently on it as well. Right now, the stabilizing holes on the 6u spacebar don't fit the stabilizers, but signature plastics has many DSA spacebars that should fit this board.

Does the Filco have the stock plate or do you have a custom one in it?

Very good point—I forgot to mention in the OP that this has a customizable aluminum plate, which allows for switch top removal.

:-* I know man, it's sad, but it was honestly getting almost no use...and I want it to be in the hands of someone who will enjoy those ergoclears. And man, that 55g thorpe...it's simply king.

I feel yah. Lol, 55g King has seemed to stick. LOL! I'm so silly. I'm glad you were able to find that end game board though... I'm tempted to buy your Filco just because but it's a good thing I'm broke :))

Hey, I have just bought a GON keyboard from a local aussie and this keyboard is now free for any good american to buy.  It's a great setup here done to perfection and please buy it from him.

If I was living in the US, I would of jumped on it instantly because you don't get a Filco spruced up beyond any reasonable expectations like this one  :thumb: .

Not to doubt your modding skills but with all those mods maybe you should show some pics of the switches and the PCB as well.

This^ i don't see why the filco should be considered as being worth $150 unless you include original switches and plate!

I really didn't want to be the first guy to post this and I don't need to be the third.  But I will offer that you will have a much easier time selling this separately.

When you get to a 300 dollar purchase,  it's hard to ignore the opportunity cost.  300 can get you a lot in this world. 

You have sick caps on that board, no doubt, but you'll find that not everyone who wants those imsto caps wants the RGYB mods you got.  And not everyone that wants a modded filco needs those sick caps.

Your valuation of the board is missing:
Stock springs,  switch housings, stems, stock abs caps.   Original plate as well.  I think a low end valuation would be 20-25 for stock switches (full)
5-10 for stock caps, depending on condition
10 for stock plate

Also a new filco can be had for under 150.  That being said if you knock 60 or so off that 330 I think you'll have a more fair valuation.  270.  My opinion, report me if you find it offensive.   Offense was not my objective
