Amazing how OLD tech can be so intricate compared to stuff that is manufactured now. Thanks for sharing your prize with all of us here at DT.
Thanks! I take pics for myself to archive (on my really shitty phone camera...maybe I should invest in an actual camera
I want it!
Where do you keep digging these up, man?
Hints/tips (there are benefits, join my army today
). It's being able to pic out the rare from the usual crap/sorta ok stuff that's difficult. Minus a couple recent screw-ups (cost me a very pretty penny
), my success rate is pretty high for rare stuff.
Eventually you can determine the switch type by things like keycap shape and font with only a handful of exceptions. And having a treasure trove of photos helps when comparing crappy auction pics.
Unfortunately, I have very few keyboards left that I am actively looking for. As the wisdom of teh internets is drying up...
Regardless, I pass up many rare finds, as I usually only want one of the type of switch (save for some exceptions). So, I usually know where to find like keyboards in my collection (or tell you that it's the only one I've ever seen...).
Services/Hints/Exotic keyboard switch offers are always welcome, hint, hint.
Anyways, I still have other recent finds to post. Perhaps tomorrow (less vintage than these recent two, but neat nonetheless).
