Nice collection you got there! I'm actually looking for a model M industrial right now, since I really like the color. Do you know how much they usually go for?

I haven't looked at their prices in a while, but they're significantly more expensive than standard ones. I think about $80-$100?

I think some enterprising company needs to reverse engineer those switches, beef up the construction a little, and make the base and top of the stem Cherry MX compatible. THAT would be brilliant.

Well the stems are Alps compatible, which is good enough for now

What sucks though, is that the contact pins aren't compatible with them, nor with Cherry MX. So a switch swap can't happen - you'd have to transplant the entire PCB :/

At one stage they were quite cheap - you could get a 101-key Industrial in good nick for about $40-50 off eBay. Nowadays they seem to have vanished off the face of the earth.

The 84-key Industrials are like gold dust, they're probably the most rare Model M variant around. You'd be looking at $200+ for one.

There's white SMK switches which are meant to be great, and use a Cherry-compatible slider. I'm not entirely sure how they compare with Montereys though.

Wow Manyak, how many hands do you have?

...And speaking of interesting keyboards, I'll save myself the trouble of retyping the same post here.

I posted my most recent mod on geekhack a while ago. link. My username is ZeNmAc on several other forums, just so you know I'm not trying to take credit for someone else's work . If you really need proof I can edit that post .
