Where can I buy Key Caps for my Filco?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently suffered a little "mishap" with my soldering iron and managed to mangle a few of my keys, mainly my "A" "S" and Spacebar. I am aware that there are a multitude of places where I can purchase a set of WASD and ESC keys but is there anywhere that also caters the Spacebar as well as the A and S key in stock, uncoloured, format with the same font and everything as factory default? For reference, I have a Filco Zero Tenkeyless with XM Whites(White Alps clones).

Either GH's group buy or in their classifieds section. Lots of them there... oh wait, you have the Zero.. heh, good luck finding those. Last I heard, Diatec will be discontinuing them soon unless you harvest keycaps from another board that has the same white ALPS. I would look on eBay and maybe post on GH to see if anyone is willing to sell you one.

You could also do a full keycap swap, like from a Dell AT101, or ABS M1. I'm not sure if all keys will fit though, but they are cheap enough, and very common.

Keycaps for something like the majestouch wont fit on the zero? They look similar enough.

It's a different stem. You need something with ALPs switches and I hear that the keys on those boards can be a bastard to pull.

Zero uses Fukkas or white ALPS clones:



The rest of Filco keyboards use Cherry MX switches (blue, black, brown & red):
