EliteKeyboards stocks a so-called universal thick ABS space bar that fits it, but what else is there? Supposedly Signature Plastics has something, but is there a source where you could buy in single or low-unit quantities?
Only EK sells spacebars by themselves I think
You'll need to go to Tao Bao to look for universal spacebars.

Btw side note: Infuriating sometimes with Leopold and their damn spacebars.


Middle is a universal spacebar from the Tai Hao buy, top is a filco stock spacebar, bottom is my 700R PBT one.

WHY LEOPOLD, WHY!! literally like 3mm off the universal
[... leopold being silly]

You know, I did a little more poking around, and geek_feng on eBay has some that are I guess 40 mm / 50 mm spacing on 6.25 units (?). In multiple colors. Also some 7 units spacebars too.
http://www.ebay.com/sch/geek_feng/m.html

dat 25 bux anodized aluminum spacebar

In any case, it advertises FC200R compatibility, among many others.

yeah if you look at it, its a universal spacebar like the Red one i showed in my picture.
It won't fit the 500R or 700R unfortunately since Leopold are annoying buggers.

Basically the universal should fit most keyboards that use 6.25, just not all.

Also depending on the switch you have, the aluminum spacebar maybe too heavy. Some people reported putting it on MX Reds was a bit no no as it would semi depress the spacebar.
I personally didn't have the problem with mine, but i use filcos that have costar stabs so they prob helped to hold up the spacebar as oppose to cherry stabs on duckys and leopolds.

and you linked Feng's ebay store. If you got questions, you can contact him on Geekhack.
He has his own vender forum there too.

Could've sworn I saw some other universal with the closer spacing being 42.5 mm instead of 40 mm. Leopold, y u do this to us? doh.gif

Wait, it was this, I think:
http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sports-Gaming-equipments/item/leopold/pbt-white-space-bar-for-mx-che/lid=36564777

So I guess the above fits some of the others? 700R included? Thanks for the info, anyhow.

I missed this earlier. Were you looking for an appraisal? You could probably ask 50 at least on eBay. That model is the most common M made, I think. But if it's fully functional, people will still buy it up. (but I'd keep it, because nostalgia and you never know when you're gonna want to type on a tank again ha)

Why not mod it some and sell it for more? There's a wireless mod that's not hard to do. And you could plasti dip it black or something. A wireless, black Model M would fetch a very pretty penny I bet.

Damn, missed the delivery of my replacement ducky shine 3. Was going to change my shine 3 with green leds(they misdelivered) for a TKL with blue leds + ducky wrist rest. But who delivers at 10.30am ?

Also, why don't wireless mechanical keyboards exist yet? I read in this thread that you can fairly easily mod a model M to be wireless, so is it easy to do with something like a poker II or a ducky shine 3 mini? Would be awesome!

I did not know! Thank you! Unfortunately not really available in Belgium/Netherlands. I would really love a wireless 60% keyboard to go with my ncase M1.

You could do something cool like this, I don't know if it's a good idea if you don't get a board only for that mod though.

Wireless mod for keyboards? can't say no. Please elaborate. (I know how to do turn stuff into wireless by hacking them but i would rather take the shortcut tongue.gif)
