yes. but they are overseas. I would try rit dye first. see this thread there is another on geekhack.



i'm pretty sure the Filco Majestouch 104 weighs 2.5 lbs and the ABS M1 weighs 3.5 lbs.

I don't think the extra 1 lb is coming from the Fukkas because the Filco Zero and Filco TenKeyless weigh the same at 2.1 lbs. I think it's the casing and steel plate.

But I'm just going by what Elite Keyboards.com says, and they say that the 104-key Majestouch boards are 2lbs, 10oz while the Tenkeyless boards weigh 2lbs, 2oz.

But I forgot about the difference in weight between the ALPS copies and the Cherry MX switches as well as the other possible differences in the internal build of both the ABS M1 and Majestouch boards.

Are you doing this with a mechanical keyboard? If so, then which one?

None of the mechanicals look good to me. It seems like the keyboard manufacturers are bound in design by the switches?? In any case, they are all very similar in design and the only backlit keyboard is the Deck which is one of the more ugly mechanicals because of the key font. I would like mechanical actuation but I need backlighting.

How badly do you need it though? I mean, I used to need it, but I find that my eyes feel much better when I use my computer with the lights on. It's as if my eyes don't have to work as hard or something.

As a result, I have the Filco Majestouch Tactile Click NKRO (err, I kept it). I used to own the G15 and the Lycosa. But the Majestouch is a billion times better. I don't miss a damn thing about either of those keyboards. In fact, you couldn't even pay me to go back to those keyboards.

Hmm, you assume a need for backlighting implies a "hunt-and-peck" typist? You must be one of those people who actually uses the term "touch typist."
