    I think it might be time for me to start considering a new keyboard, unless I can get my space bar fixed. It sometimes doesn't activate correctly and needs to be pressed pretty hard to get it to work. I think it may just be loose, so I'll mess with it later...

    Any suggestions before I start looking into a new board? :D

    Depends. Are you handy with a soldering iron?

    Half and half... :D

    It seems to have been resolved (for now) by messing with the way that it sits on the board. Maybe it was never seated correctly after replacing the caps.

    I still have a JD40 kit (titanium plates, board, some bits) sat in a cupboard and unlikely to ever get assembled. Anyone want to take this off my hands? A related question - how much is such a kit worth these days?

    Also, hi! Haven't been here in ages, hope everyone's well :)

    Yes, although I do have some switches around here somewhere. Blues, possibly. I'll dig it all out tomorrow if there's some interest. I've actually got two fully built JD40's as well, but I'm not sure I want to part with one... not that they get used much, if I'm honest!
