That was looking good! A shame you had to stop but I know how it is .
What would you want for a couple?
Looks like you have the tools and skills for the job. I tend to make work for myself by doing everything by hand. Tools cost too much

All I have is a table saw and scroll saw! Then again, that pretty much covers 95% of it, heh . Been planning on getting a buffing wheel too though, sanding is a real PAIN.

And I dunno, not much I guess, they are pretty simple pieces. I'll send you a PM.

Laurie, where did you get those blank keycaps for that M2? Do you know of anywhere to find some for Model Ms?

This is interesting. I've always thought keyboards like the G15 such were the bomb, but I guess this has changed my mind about gaming keyboards.

Thanks for posting this.

Glad it was useful

I've been meaning to update the list of keyboards with a couple more, I think I'll do that now.

Anyone know what the Logitech Illuminated Keyboard uses for switches?
I have one... and I love it.
Perfect key recognition even at high speeds and it is actually good looking too

Hey.
I don't know what you mean by m2 sorry
I know you can get blank caps and whole keys from Unicomp in black or white.
The blacks are one piece and the white ones are two piece.
Its where I got mine from.

Laurie.

Oh and at a guess on the logitech illuminated I would say a high quality scissor switch. These are the same as on most laptops. The scissor is just a mechanism to help the key stay level and the actuator is still a rubber dome over a pcb or membrane.

Scissor switches w/rubber domes, like laptops. They're tons better than regular keyboards, that's for sure

Hey as long as you like the feel of it that's great. But whenever you're due for a new keyboard at least try out a tactile mechanical first. I bet it won't be that long from now either, Logitech's scissor switches only last a few months before becoming stiff. Happened with me with both an UltraX and diNovo edge.

By the way, any idea if Unicomp makes clear keytops as well?

It uses Cherry MLs...short travel, nice feedback.

But do you really want to pay $1500 for it?
