Hi, I’m Elbert. You may or may not know me as eksuen from a variety of forums. My foray into this hobby started in 2014, when I bought a new computer. I had always used the stock fullsize keyboard provided and I was frustrated with the awkward position I had to assume to access my mouse. I never use the numpad at home so I thought to myself, “There has got to be a keyboard out there that excludes the numpad.” I did some research, bought a KB Paradise V80, and the rest is history.
In the years since, I have amassed a significant collection. I’ve moved overwhelmingly into custom builds and/or modding stock options because I find the experience both fun and rewarding. I’m also slowly converting people such as colleagues and my better half.
This is unlikely to be a comprehensive list, but I have assembled (in no particular order):
FOX Orange (x2)
NerD 60 (x2)
TGR Jane CE
I have modded (switch swap, spring/component swap, case swap, material inserts for dampening, etc.):
Masterkeys Pro S
Varmilo VA68 Alps
Realforce 87U (into Norbaforce)
FOX Orange 75
Custom modded Portal-themed board for my SO
I have, on numerous occasions, thought about offering assembly services to the community, but I never got around to it. I could probably handle a couple projects here and there, but I don’t currently have the capacity to provide such a service with regularity. In any case, if you want to pick my brain or discuss a potential assembly job, feel free to reach out.
