yeah, It uses like a 5.5 mm bolt and I ended up having to go to an autozone to buy a socket that is that size yet long and skinny enough to fit.

There isn't. You need a 7/32 or 5.5 MM thin wall socket to open the case. I got mine for a few dollars at menards. Also once you open the case you would need to cut the plastic rivets that hold the metal plate to the top housing. (note it is something that is not able to be undone without a bolt or screw mod to put it back together).

One other thing, I don't have personal experience selling key caps on ebay. IDK how many people would look for a whole set vs individual keys. Personally I'm lazy so I would sell a full set, however selling individually would likely give you more profit along with a ton more work. Thinking about this, I would actually be interested in the set but idk if now is the right time for me to buy or not.

On my project list is to bolt mod both of my M's Won't be happening for a month or so though.

Thanks for the tips guys! I'm most likely ordering a QFR tomorrow when B&H reopens. I believe it's on back-order for 7-14 days till they get a new shipment in. They won't charge me until they actually ship it out so if I find a better deal somewhere else I'll cancel it.

Bolt mods are a serious pain in the arse. I spent about 45 minutes getting the plastic rivets shaved down all the way and cut my finger down to the bone with a razor blade, then I spent about another 45 minutes drilling all the holes, then I spent an hour putting on all the nuts and bolts just to realize that I had one hammer/spring seated incorrectly so I had to undo all the nuts and bolts, then I re-did it again just to realize that I put the membrane layers on in the wrong order, so I had to re-do it again just to realize that I had the spacebar hammer/spring seated in the wrong hole, then I had to re-do it one more time and I finally got it right. Be careful to check what is underneath the plastic rivet before you drill a hole because you might screw up a stabilizer like I did. Luckily I was able to find all the tools I needed in my Dad's ancient toolbox. Also, if your spacebar stabilizers are broken or in bad shape you can use 7/32" SAE washers to do this (not my pic):

I added some electrical tape inside of my washers to give them a tighter fit, and my spacebar is super sturdy now.

I finally got my GPU (970 G2 Gaming) and got a start on my water cooling setup (Swiftech H220-X), so I can finally get back into keyboards. My infinity keyboard should come by the end of January, and my Keycool rainbow caps should be here early/mid February. I have been using my Model M as my daily driver since October now and I think it might be a little weird to go from buckling spring to MX black.

well I'm going to buy another mech keyboard, for work use. Needs to be fullsize. Wanting either Browns or Clears.

the only boards I have in mind is a Code with clears. I'm not even dead set on backlighting since it's for work. I might go for a WASD V2 instead.

haha I fixed my Ducky Shine, typing on it right now.

Someone on my guild suggested I do wire to wire, and i was like "well its broke anyways worst that could happen is it still doesnt work, right?

I stripped the wires, and tied them together and biggrin.gif

I got my MX Blues back.
