What is on your desk today?


#910

My travel board ready for South Korea. Board is hot-swappable KBD6X RGB in cheap plastic case with wire-like fiber carbon KBDfans plate. I don’t know where I’d be working so it’s pre-loaded with Zilents V2 lubed with Christo-Lube (forget which). Also taking some Holy Pandas just in case I find a decent noise tolerant place to work at.


#911

Wait, there was a POM Leaf 60? I thought they were only offered in alu and PC. Details?


#912

Nice. You going to pick anything up while in South Korea?


#913

Not really but I may drop by TX office so my chances are grim as I doubt I’ll be able to resist a vintage brass TX60 if it’s right in front of me and ready for purchase.


#914

You are correct. My original order did not meet QC so I was offered several alternatives, including some prototypes made of POM


#915

can u pls tell me what case is that?

maybe this one or something like that

i need a case for my rama m60-a


#916

It’s this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XKTK686

If M60-A is like Tofu in size, you’ll have to put it in slightly tilted like I do with Tofu or get a bigger version. Case in my photo is a plastic hi-profile clone of Pok3r case which is very compact as 60% goes.

UPDATE: Looks like M60-A has thicker top bezel so it may not fit the case.


#917

ty man, u think this work?


#918

Finally put those mint kbdfans blanks to use.

ty man, u think this work?

I think so.

Dimensions of mine are: 13.4 x 4.7 x 2.4 inches.
That of the one you linked to are: 13 x 5.1 x 3.9 inches.

So it’s a little shorter but wider and taller. M60 is about as long as Tofu so I think it’ll work although it’ll be pretty tight length-wise given that bag corners are rounded.

If you want a safer options:

  1. 14.7 x 8.2 x 3.1 inches https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076LNWR39/ - longer, much wider, slightly taller.
  2. 16 x 6.2 x 4.6 inches https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076H3FN8M - much longer, wider, much taller

#921

Ooh. This one looks like a better fit: https://www.amazon.com/co2CREA-Professional-Ultra-Portable-Controller-Wireless/dp/B07G7XHJSM

13.4 x 7.3 x 1.9 inches - same length but less rounded corners, wider, flatter. big enough to fit a 65%.

I had slightly regretted not getting a black plate with my kbd75 late last year, but I guess it worked out in my favor, since the previous internal combo had non lubed fake tealios.

A recent Gateron silent black order was very disappointing, the switches would bind on press, they were unusable. Ordered some Gateron yellows with this new plate and pcb, so I used the silent black tops and stem, with the spring and bottom of the yellows, work perfectly now. Lovely weighting to type on for extended periods, with no fatigue. Very happy my idea to put silents into this set up payed off well too. The typing experience is still stiff and rigid, while having a slightly softer bottom out and being significantly quieter than non lubed switches. I’ve also started loving 7u space since using it on the hotswap Tofu, so I thought it would be a big bonus to have that here too.

Spent about 6 hours disassembling, lubing switches / stabs, and setting / lining everything up, then did my first soldering job the next morning. Some of my joints could be a little better, but that comes with more practice and thought it was real good fun. Quite proud I put this together, and that I enjoy the typing experience now.

Looks great.

Pizza today


#926

Back to using my Norbaforce. I absolutely adore this thing, though I’m still waiting for that elusive stainless steel PVD backplate to finish it off… :kissing_smiling_eyes:


#927

Been using this Pok3r at home with Cherry milky white switches.


#928

And this at work. Green Fjell with Holy Pandas, and ePBT keycaps.


#929

Wow, that’s a stunner
