I contacted @Krashan after I heard rumors about his keyboard. August last year he sent me this



Works perfectly and no problems with the BiFrost Leds. Highly recommended.

This is amazing! I assume you will be able customize this for UK keyboard types?

Seen this project a year or 2 back but thought it had quietly disappeared.

Hope I can get on the list, do I just register some interest on your main site? I sadly (happily) do not use social media, bar this forum of course.

How does this keyboard feel to type on and what function do the "RP" keys in the corners have?

I opted for Brown keys which I really like to type on. The "RP" does not do anything in my setup.

Honestly.. this makes me want a 1200 just so I can use that beautiful piece of custom keyboard kit. WOW. (A1200s are cool for many reasons of course, but I never had one back in the day, and have remaining an OCS/ECS cave man this whole time).

This would happen, only I don't have an A4000 to base it on... You can't really do a thing like this and hope to get it right first time with no hardware to test it on. My A1200 design is on its fourth iteration.

Sure. Keycaps are printed on demand and I support all the layouts sold by Commodore: US, UK, DE, FR, ES, IT, DK, SE/FI, NO, CH and IC. :-)

"RP" keys are there because the spacebar is shorter (7U, compared to 9U of original, where U is a width of a regular, square key). They are not connected to the keyboard matrix, however they - together with "Extra" key between "Help" and "Del" - are connected to a 6-pin header and may be used for Gotek, kickstart switcher or any other DIY project. Why 7U space? This is the longest one, which can be bought off-the-shelf.

My current keyboards are at revision I (9th iteration), revision J is on the way. ;-). 7th iteration was the first usable one.

You've done a really nice job on this, especially solving the keycap problem. If I was starting to build keyboards today, well I wouldn't - just buy yours

160 EUR + 23% VAT (where applicable) + shipping (destination dependent). Current queue: 46 keyboards, estimated waiting time at end of queue is 8 months.
