What is on your desk today?


#829

What’s on my desk today? Well. It’s a lot.

UEK prototype with SKCL Greens, MM2 with Yok Pandas with Kaihl Black stems, Wang 724 with Blue Alps, Cherry g81-3031 (waiting on a replacement pcb so I can chuck the MY trash, Brutal60 with Oblique 55g vint blacks, and a Jacked Frost Shishi, SGI AT-101 Granite with clicky white alps, HHKB, AEK I with oranges, Zenith Turbosport 386 keyboard with alps low profile common mount, Cherry g80-0689 (smoothest vintage blacks ever, and it sounds PERFECT. Filmed, with 55g CWW springs. unlubed, besides the springs.) One of my dailies. Next is an unknown Model F clone with Cherry MX blacks and OG doubleshots. It’s a mystery, a unicorn. No model numbers or molding dates/marks ANYWHERE. it definitely wasn’t made by Cherry though, that’s for sure.

And I still have my other three M0116’s upstairs. And my other AEK I, and AEK II. And my Kaypro 2. and my 5140. and my IZEOK-1000. And my z150.

Oh, and I almost forgot my old logo dell at101 with pine black alps and Alps Doubleshots. VERY different from the normal bamboo black alps and crappy Silitek caps.

I like vintage boards.

Please tell me that you actually don’t type on a keyboard sitting on a keyboard on a keyboard…
And that you actually tidy your desk of all those keebs :^)


#831

Of course I don’t type like that, that’s just the only way I can get a photo of all of them.

And my desk is usually a mess, but I generally have the keyboards off to the side or on the ground next to my desk. I alternate between them day to day.


#832

Why? There’s something wrong with typing like that?


#833

Work is dongle hell but at least the coffee is decent.


#834

Which board is that again? Is it the Wonderland? I didn’t know that it was shipping already.


#835

No, it’s a a board I designed and threw together last week with hotswap, USB-C, and (admittedly rough) gaskets. I love it.


#836

Interesting! Looks fantastic. I would be interested in picking one up for sure.


#837

Hey, thanks! I may run an IC soon-ish if I can work out some kinks in the design. PCB assembly will take a while with my current tools, but I may consider investing in better gear or, if not, dropping hotswap.


#838

Colour me interested; would love to see what might come of this!


#839

I will most likely run a couple if I get an okay from Yuktsi, and am working on getting quotes for a larger batch of cases and wrist rests.

Tofu with DZ60, Kailh BOX Jade switches, and WinMix retro beige DSA keycaps.


#841

Excellent, my wallet weeps when it comes to looking at TGR aftermarket prices, and I’m busy enough that I missed the 2-second groupbuy on the Jane V2 CE.


#842

glad to see a soul brother in workspace conditions… one of the best thing about vintage boards is that you can stack em

The only thing I see missing is my usual cup of coffee, cup of water, and bottle of coke zero. Always all just sitting next to my most priceless boards. LOL


#843

A lot of sweet boards there. What case are you using for your Kayak?

Finally decided on what layout to go with for my ADK64 build. I wanted to use the caps & layout from a SGI AT101, but settled on the AEK layout caps & layout since that is really what this case was made for. I used a Hasu ALPS64 PCB + FR4 AEK plate with SKCM browns for this one & I’m loving the finished product!

Downsized to a 60% since I’m mostly just hammering out e-mails these days. Brought a little color to my desk because it makes me happy :slightly_smiling_face:

r3 Green Fjell with brass plate and lubed Holy Pandas. Keycaps are a combination of ePBT green with reverse dyesub mods from KBRepublic’s Irish set. It’s a wonderful soundtrack to have at work all day!


#846

Thanks!
It’s cut from frosted orange acrylic with a mate black acrylic plate

Swapped my GMK Camping set for GMK TA (R1) last week.The board I normally keep these caps on is currently half-desoldered; the one pictured is a NiZ 108 with 65g domes. Artisans are a Jelly Key esc, Hammer spacebar, object-garage numlock, a few Latrialum caps, and a Spread the Jerms cap in the top right.

I also brought in my catch22 earlier this week to test some different springs for an upcoming build. The switches along the outside are 67g Zilent v2s, and for the numbers I have gateron jailhouse greens with SPRiT 63.5g-S, TX 60g, and TX 55g springs.
