    Really? I think it helps to keep it's width in proportion. Take away the top bar and it starts to look too long and skinny, fragile looking. At a glance it looks like a golden section with a square stuck on the end, not entirely un-pleasing...

    ...I must now go and get a tape measure and calculator, back in a while...


    DAMN this MK IRC channel, I just can't keep up!

    I was replying to this...

    And for those who care; if a G80-3000 had its number pad and arrow cluster pgup pgdwn etc cut of it would be a golden rectangle... Something like a race with a fat top bar.

    Ahhh ok.

    I've never tried a proper Cherry board. Maybe someone will bring one to the next KB meet....

    G80-3000 is classic. It's still like 30% smaller than a model M I swear! Of course a 3000 looks ludicrous next to a 60%.

    This evening I put a beast plate on a poker: (this poker is not mine - I am doing this work for someone else)

    Modded all the non LED switches to 65g blues with Korean springs. There was also 2 faulty switches which I took off and replaced the switch housing. Removed LEDs and LED switches. (but this photo made me realise I had missed space bar :) )
    [​IMG]

    All switches off the board
    [​IMG]

    Plate didn't fit correctly as the edges around the stabs weren't true - so I filed them with a needle file to make them straight then it fit fine.
    [​IMG]

    All switches in the plate - it is hard work getting the switches in a beast plate
    [​IMG]

    In a case and LED test :)
    [​IMG]

    There is no stab in right shift as this has been pinched for the 38GT as it was one short.

    DONE! 4 hours start to finish with some dinner eating in the middle.

    True. I'm just getting fed up of two things: the noise of the MX blues, and the size of the board. :)

    Thanks! Not long to go now :worried:

    ? Nothing seems to be found when I click the link

    Nice work! And quick too! You should have asked - I have spare stabilisers and you could have had one of those...
