Cherry G80-1000 center stemmed capslock?
« on: Wed, 03 December 2014, 10:34:04 »
Hello,

I bought a Cherry G81 with MY switches and the Capslock key has an off-centered stem, so it doesn't fit on my Poker II.

Do the Cherry G80 series keyboards (MX switches) have a center stemmed Capslock key?

Regards
Geroximo

G80/G81-1XXX and 3XXX are exclusively off-centered caps locks.

You can get centered ones from some G80 models, like G80-8200HPBUS, but generally they're all off-centered.

You might have to do some pretty serious searching to find an OG center stemmed caps lock. Another option would be to find one of the GMK mod packs that have been produced, like the pretty recent purple mods or CMYW, or get in on the GMK mod GB that's paused right now

There are some older G80 models that had a centered stem, like the 3181, 3190, 2500, etc and there are some that have a Control key instead like the 0528 and 77* models. Some TA/Royal typewriters have them also. There will be a new groupbuy soon for a beige mods pack which will contain it.
