Keyboard Mod

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have an IDM Model M keyboard, (Old and Big =( ) and I want to change the Chassis of it to a smaller one and maybe more modern looking. I love the board But just not a huge fan of the way it looks and how big it is. So What I am asking is, does anyone think it is possible to just swap the board into a new Chassis?

Most likely you'd have to build your own. Also if you open up the model M i believe you have to bolt mod it cause you need to break some rivets.

It's not easy, that's for sure.


But I've seen people build wooden cases for keyboards.

Well, a year ago I thought so too.

Now I have moved on to thinking wooden scissor switches are cool.

oh man, those are sweet looking. Although I don't think I would own one, but I appreciate the craftsmanship.
