I'm planning on selling my V60 soon with Blue Alps... I'm thinking of taking advantage of the massive SKCM Blue inflation right now. smile.gif

The vortex cases that are meant for filcos can fit a qfr pcb/plate, and with basic wiring exp. you can add indicator lights to the case. If i ever decide to build up a TLK that would be the route i'd go if I could find a case. ( but the layout isn't for me )

Phantoms are good, popular and cheap, wouldn't be a bad choice at all.

I would love an aluminum case for my Filco, I just don't use a TKL variant.

Good lord, this thread is killing me. I could easily spend so much money.

There's a chance I'd be willing to buy it, despite what would probably be a slightly ridiculous cost. I'd love too get my hands on some click Alps, but most people have been telling me to steer clear of SKCM Whites...

I just dropped $380ish (that doesn't even include shipping) on Taobao for new board parts yesterday. Two cases, two alu plates, a purple pcb (so excited about that one), and a big handful of MX Greens I'm lookin to put some 62g springs in.

Oh, and a Gen 1 (better case, IMO) run of one of these beauties with a gorgeous purple anodized case. Only $200, too, which is a steal considering they originally went for ~$300 and there aren't that many of them out there.

As it stands, though, I'm dropping way too much money on boards and I'm gonna have to start selling some off soon. I can't decide whether I want to sell my Pok3r with the Clears or the one with my black-spring Blues, though. I love them both so much....

I've been mulling over a poker, building a 60% from the ground up and looking a new switches... All while I just dropped money on another 560 radiator, two gtx 970's and parts for my daughter's rig... I understand your pain.

Octagon V2 and a couple keysets have blown my budget for a while...

Those prices are in yen, not yuan, right? I mean, either way, that's a TON of money, but like..... If it's yuan, we're talking about ~$15,000. In yen it's "only" ~$850. (Which is still ridiculous, mind you.) And hey, if you ever want to make some of that back, that laptop you've got with the vintage MX Blues looks mighty fine! biggrin.gif

Japanese Yen, not Chinese Yuan. wink.gif

Ultimately I should be able to recoup most of those costs by selling boards like the AEK IIs which should fetch at least $50, hopefully more because of the dye-sub Japanese PBT keys. Then the NEC if I decide to sell it could get another $300 or so with the current Blue Alps prices. So I should be able to mostly break even and keep a few nice boards for myself, like the NOS AEK II, X68000s, and maybe a few others. redface.gif

Edit: This is of course, ignoring international shipping on all of this which will probably run me another 35.000 yen. But ultimately I'm getting some nice mechanicals for the community (a lot of these are stuck in Japan and few Japanese actually know their value) and saving them from Japan's mandatory e-recycling laws, while getting some nice ones for myself.
