Hello keeb lovers,
My name is Eric but everybody calls me Rico.
I started my mechanical journey with an IBM model M when I was student.
Now I am a proud owner of two Filcos (one TKL with Cherry Blues, one full size with Cherry Browns) and a Topre Realforce with variable key weights and all in Azerty ISO layout (I’m a frog eater :p).
They are 8 years old and are still doing strong.
I’m doing keyboard repairs for friends and collegues in my spare time, just posted a guide on this forum if some of you are interested and afraid to do that themselves:
I recently came back to lurk in keyboard forums and discovered that a lot of things had changed radically:
- So much choice for Cherry switches!
- So much gorgeous customs in GB!
I got excited again and began designing my own keyboard.
It is still a work in progress and takes a huge amount of time but hope in the near future I will have MY own keyboard to type on.
By doing that I have to give my huge respect to all these great case and PCB designers out there, it is really a very complex and time consuming task.
