From the first, I fell in love with the new Apple Aluminum keyboard. It's sleek, has a great laptop-ey feel to the key action, and has enough function keys to land a space shuttle. I had to have one! Upon arrival, I wasn't disappointed with a single thing mentioned above, but there was one thing wrong with the keyboard. It simply sat too flat for my liking. Following is a description of how I gave some tilt to mine, and discovered the true meaning of love and fellowship along the way. I used stuff I had lying around, but even if you had to buy everything, this mod should cost well under $15. This is my first posting on this August site, so please feel free with the constructive criticism, and let's restrain ourselves from Mac/PC hating, or a discussion of typing ergonomics. Bob bless.
Step 1: Collect Your Materials
To tilt your own keyboard, you'll need the following:
(1) Apple Aluminum Keyboard
(2) Leviton Blank QuickPort Inserts
(2) Self-Adhesive Rubber feet
Super Glue Gel
If you're reading this, you've probably got the keyboard, and the rest can be bought easily at a computer retailer or at your local Home Depot. The blank inserts come in a ten-pack, so you'll have some to mess up with. Look for them in the section that sells networking supplies. They're actually designed to fill an unused hole in a wall plate that holds networking jacks. The exact specifications for the rubber feet aren't really all that important, as long as they fit onto the "Face" of the blank insert well. The Super Glue doesn't really HAVE to be gel, but I like how the gel sticks and gives you a bit of working time. For the sake of all that's good and holy, buy the WHITE blank inserts. Don't mar the appearance of your Apple KB with ivory. Just don't.
