    Teraset have them in stock, I ordered some gear from them last week so I can vouch for them.

    https://www.teraset.net/ducky.php

    Drop them an email with what you're after and your shipping address, they'll come back with a quote and a secure link to pay, easy as that. They're based in Finland but even so the shipping on my (relatively small) order wasn't too bad and it only took 5 working days to turn up.

    So my razer blackwidow arrived earlier this week, I'm really happy I can see the benefits over my old logitech. The clicky blues are certainly very clicky though. Not that it bothers me, but Mrs Bear may not be so pleased.

    I think if we removed this post we'd have to trim about 90% of this thread :lol:

    Mine will be arriving soon from Mr Baggins - I'll be sure to post pics so you can see how much you do(n't) need one :thumb:

    Bro - everyone needs a GON. :D

    I wish my GON hadn't killed itself :( mainly, as there is 150+ led soldered on there that have to come off there to get the dead pcb out!

    i wish I knew what happened to it, rather than the rather unexciting - was using it fine, put it on the shelf, picked it up to use it again, no longer works at all. Must be some kind of static charge or something if that's even a thing with keyboards.

    NERD TKL pcb + acrylic case, is not really that much money to buy, electronics are about a tenner on top, LED are about a tenner, switches are about as much as switches cost, same with stabs and thats is really I think you could probably get all the parts for one for like 150 - 160ish.

    The gon Acrylic cases are really nice, George's looks ace, I don't want to put pictures up until he's got his though, but then I'm sure he will put his own up :D

    I've got switches, which helps with the price. I'd probably want the full monty anodised case though... I'll wait and see the acrylic first!

    Scored more dyesubs. These ones are basically brand new! no wear at all on them. My other set was pretty battered.

    Is this a Selectric keyboard ? Been tempted to hack an IBM electric typewriter keyboard into a PC keyboard.

    It's from a Triumph Adler SE 700 DS - Unfortunately, the typewriter must have been dropped or something on the way as it was absolutely knackered, and brand new at the same time! So that's a shame - keyboard uses MY switches and isn't amazing. Cherry MX Thick pbt dyesubs though :)

    Very nice indeed! Been watching a few on eBay but they're usually local collection only. Not having a car does make some things tricky!

    That thing weighs an absolute ton. I don't know how they made any money on it at all - I got it for 25 quid delivered from a private sale - I can't imagine delivery costing much less than that.

    I really want to turn up one of the Royal's with doubleshots.

    I think the one I was watching had doubleshots. I'll have a hunt and see if it's been relisted.

    Edit: never mind, I misread that. Haven't seen any royals, I'll add them to my search filters though.
