yup. he has some of my money. good to hear about KSN, I’ll have to check them out
Did you paint it? Also, I’m interested in the Hasu/Dave combo. I can’t remember how the Hasu 980 controller works but is it a bridge between the main PCB and another daughter board (the usb-c)?
I did not. Older Leopold MX keyboards’ cases may be compatible with the Topre guts with some modifications. For this one, I had to file down two posts in the midline of the case because in the MX version, the posts go thru the pcb/plate, but in the Topre case, the posts are half the size and they do not go thru the Topre PCB/plate.
(the two posts in the middle of the pink case were already filed down)
And hopefully this answers your query about the Dave USB-C db to Hasu. I basically replaced whatever the stock Leopold parts were with this. Hasu 980 will work with the USB-mini that the Topre Leopolds come with; I just wanted this 980c to be USB-C, if that makes sense.
that enter just pops over the long boi shift
Very awesome mod and case swap.
This one looks fantastic.
This one is hardcore in so many ways. I love it.
How did you go about making that patina?
I used ammonia and salt and left it in a container for a few days. I’d flip and wet the paper towels on the bottom every few hours. Super easy and got pretty blue
It looks so good every time, can’t wait for the profile
Did you catch this?
Oh my gosh, it’s happening! Congrats!
