Alps Infinity length spacebar
« on: Wed, 01 June 2016, 07:43:54 »
Does anyone know of any vintage keyboards that use alps mount keycaps that have a spacebar the same length as an infinity spacebar? I would love it if the color matched my focus doubleshot keyset also. Ill be installing this on my Infinity AlpsParty board, which I am currently using without a spacebar. Ill add a picture later when I get home. Modding a spacebar isnt out of the question either.

The infinity spacebar is 6u which is a super weird size and due to this, I am unaware of any older alps board with a 6u spacebar.

I had the same problems when building my hhkb layout alps party

The Unitek K258 on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Good-working-Admin-Drawer-with-Glidepoint-Touchpad-and-K-258-Unitek-Keyboard-/121780678494?hash=item1c5ab1af5e:g:lm0AAOSwyvBV-Kc4 seems to have a 6 unit space bar

At the time this wasn't available so I ended up finding an old positron keyboard with alps switches that I harvested the space bar from.
