What is on your desk today?

I see that you are a big e-white fan :slight_smile:
Seeing this I might consider buying the Polaris 60% in this color.

The TX-CP in the background is some kind of powder coating instead of E-white, thus it’s a bit warmer than the other boards. Almost considered getting the Polaris in white too but went with the yellow instead. Don’t have that color yet :grin:

My friend sold me his old Das II a couple of months ago and I brought it into work today since I realized I hadn’t really used it yet. Thankfully nobody has complained about the noisy MX blues so far :sweat_smile:

I’m a bit surprised that the caps that don’t get much use actually have a pretty good texture to them, despite POM’s reputation for being super smooth. The caps that are a bit more broken in like the home row are considerably smoother than the F-row.

Speaking of the caps, does anyone have tips for cleaning POM? This board is filthy :nauseated_face:

Hmmm.

Maybe just the classic mild soap + warm water? I think that does the trick 90% of the time

Warm water and windwow cleaner in a tupperware and shake away. Then put them in a salad spinner with a kitchen towel for an effective quick dry

That’s exactly what i do with all the old keysets i’ve found :slight_smile:

What are those btw?

Carbon feet removed from OG BKE domes. You need to remove these carbon feet in order to use the domes on a regular Topre keyboard.

Oh, OG bke, nice, Didn’t know they had these things.

Freshly Cerakoted

What’s the texture feel like? Looks smooth and matte

Smooth for the majority with a couple of rough spots. Definitely not as smooth as the previous anode.

Really outstanding color combination

My old ACR60 getting some BOX Navies taken off then getting some MD HPs put on.


Finished product rocking JTK Toxic. I did the sorbothane strut mod this time around & used a MK Ultra foam insert under the PCB. Overall I am very happy with the results so far. It’s not quite as loud as your average Holy Panda boards thanks to the strut mod & MK Ultra foam, it has a very nice light & flexible typing experience thanks to the plate being swiss cheese & me removing the middle standoff in the case, Definitely a different style for me, but I am liking it so far!

Trying to decide if this is a repair project, or harvest project

Depends on how confident you are in your repair skills. I’m a harvest kind of guy myself.

There is a US quarter sized crack/hole on the bottom… it’ll be a tough one. I plan on opening the whole board up and investigating further tonight. It does have a speaker like the pingmasters though which would be nifty if I could salvage that.

Either way it looks like a nice score even if you end up just getting some caps, switches, & stabs from it. Those caps are fire! :eyes:

Taking it apart to inspect is probably best course of action. Good call.
