My Model F was held together by like 2 flatheads
Problem was that the holes where the bolts are sunk in are really deep and slim and we didn't have a tool for that in our neighborhood
You can buy them at a hardware store.
also pls no abuse model m, it did nothing wrong. if you want to abuse a buckling spring board then pls buy a unicomp and defile that instead.
Screwdriver are the ones with the cross or the line at the tip:P
This is why I keep buying screwdriver sets, they always have some problem
Have a really nice proper set that's too big to get into fiddly places
A precision set that's too small for a lot of things
A nice ratcheting handle + bit set that's the perfect size and variety, but the bits are too short
Now I'm looking for a set of bits with really long heads so I can just use the handle
Any recommendations on a mechanical bluetooth keyboard without a numpad? Preferably brown or white switches, preferably US layout.
Oh man. That's surprisingly good and at a reasonable price for that stuff. I'm not gonna use it for gaming though, and the flashy lights are very unnecesary for me. But why not, right?
Definitely my #1 pick right now, thank you! One question though, I couldn't see anywhere if it works for Mac. Keyboards are pretty much universal though, no?
What is the cheapest way to get the anne shipped again?
I picked up a Corsair K70 Rapidfire today and I have to admit. I really like the MX Speeds a lot. I tried Blue, Red, Brown, Green, Black, and Clear but I tried the K70 at MicroCenter and I really like the super short key travel amount. I'd recommend it.
Probably banggood, I've never ordered from there but I know a lot of people get their MK accessories from there.
As an aside, I've sold over a dozen keyboards and I've never had trouble selling like I am with this 60%. Are people just not buying right now or something? Half of the boards I've sold were gone within a day.
I feel like I should post it on GH but I don't have enough posts to make a classifieds listing :/
Amazing Chocolatier finally in MD's warehouse. Looking forward to it next week or whatever, first SA set.
Ducky Shine 4 died on me after 1.5 years. Got a Shine 6.
We'll have to see if buying the same brand was a good idea.
Finally got my plum 84 topre clone and I'm really pleased, got to compare it to a friends novatouch (I know, perhaps not the most fair comparison). The plum being only 35g felt a lot lighter ofc, but the difference between the two was smaller than I anticipated
If anyone is looking for random keycaps or anything, check out my new post on r/mm. Decided I have too much useless stuff and need to get rid of it.
Also, does anyone here have experience soldering LEDs? I need to get thinner solder to work on mine and was wondering what thickness people use for LEDs.
Uh I just soldered new blue leds on my model m using normal .56mm pb38sn60cu2
Make sure to get the resistors right though, I just went without for now and it's super bright - I guess modern boards have them already though
That is just throughhole stuff, no idea about smd
It's not SMD, thankfully those were presoldered in a color I like, just throughhole. My problem is the solder i have is like, 1mm diameter or more. I only need a small spool but amazon only sells huge spools of Kester
Does anyone here know of someone/somewhere selling MX Lock switches?
I'm considering getting some.
When they are in stock. Otherwise they're a bit harder to get a hold of. There were group buys for em at around $6 a pop just for reference.
Wait they're still being manufactured?
I thought that the last of them were purchased from Cherry/distributors about 3 years ago, so they were only really available second hand.
Speaking of, I finally fixed the LEDs!
Had to jump some lifted pads, but all the LEDs are functioning correctly now! There is a slight problem where my keys are actually hitting the tops of the LEDs rather than bottoming out (about .5mm above where they would normally bottom out, resulting in some weird feel, but it's fine so far, if it really starts to bother me I'll probably just end up shaving them. Does anyone know how to shave the top off an LED?
unfortunately, my phone fucking blows at low-light
