Awesome review glad to see a review of this keyboard, out of curiosity does a Model F26 require a bolt mod?
And know you've reviewed the another 60% how would you feel reviewing a 30% board  :eek:  ;)
But yeah cool review

Yikes! I was only half paying attention when you dropped that thing, and it startled me!  :))

Not really, no rivets on a 4704 Model F that need replacing. The foam between the frint and back plates can degrade a bit and cause sensing problems when the PCB is dirty though.

My F107 refurb thread, there are a handful of others around: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=75722

Sorry, I mis-read what you were doing while watching.  Too many long words starting with "m" ...
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
