I'm also thinking Space Invaders. The board looks a lot like my 725.

Keytronic foam and foil, the old tall version.

I wish this forum had the bow-to-overlord emoji. Thank you, sir.

Another one I'm curious about, it's a Miniterm 1203s (late 70s) dumb terminal with dot matrix readout.

Any chance you leave a vintage mech to me? :mrgreen: You keep sniping them!
You beat me to the beamer, this one, and another one I can't remember now...

Esp: Habría posibilidades de que me dejes alguno que siempre me ganas de mano? :mrgreen:
Ya te me adelantaste con el beamer, este y algún otro que no recuerdo.
Avisá cuando aparezca alguno que ya tengas así le puedo entrar yo =P

Es pura suerte. Al final cancelé la compra del Unisys porque el vendedor nunca quería coordinar, así que si te interesa está publicado. :) Si tenés tiempo y ganas entrás a ML y buscás "teclado" sin más, filtrando por usados, cada tanto alguna joyita a buen precio aparece. La próxima me fijo si te consigo algo. :lol:

It would seem then that those LED windows in conjunction with yellow on the space bar only is a good indicator for space invaders? I assume Keytronic / foam and foil caps were rarley PBT so yellowing should be equally distributed on those boards?

Identify please :roll: I can only say that judging by "typewriter" Russian layout sublegends, not more common DOS layout, it may be from ~1987 to ~1992.

Taiwan buckling spring. I have one that's identical except it has no sublegends. No brand ID. Model TK-M501C. FCC IZITK-105M.

Interesting mechanism because you can change each switch from click to no click by removing and reinstalling the spring and lever the other way. There's a photo here someplace of the instruction sticker for that.

Hoy empecé con albañiles en casa, así que el umbral de compra vuelve a subir hasta 'blue ALPS' hasta nuevo aviso =P

EDIT: Tengo algo con SMK linear vintage en casa, por ahí te sirve para tu otro proyecto. Esta noche veo de mandarte foto.

Help please. I found while rummaging at some goodwill stores around me a Maxi Switch Inc. p/n 2189037-00-003 (there are 2 other parts numbers on it as well p/n 54191305 and p/n 9100862 which is attached to a barcode). It also says Network Computing Devices Inc on it (I did find out the it must be a keyboard for some kind of terminal because it has some some crazy keys on it like help, compose, and 2 diamond keys!). It also has a model number of N-123na but doing a search for that comes up with nothing. It has double shot keycaps and cherry mount stems but I dont know what kind of switches it has. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'll get some pics uploaded in a few. Thanks.

Basically anything made after the 90s by Maxi switch is rubber dome of some kind. Maxi Switch actually made... Maxi switches before that but I've heard that they are nothing special.

The Acer would be a KB-084. Possibly blue Alps, but there were also Multitech foam and foil versions (See Chyros' recent Franklin FKB-3 review).

Most Compaq keyboards are rubberdomes or foam and foil. Anyway, do you have more pictures?

According to the wiki, wiki/IBM_6298389, it's a capacitive rubber dome keyboard, made in Japan. Seems quite interesting.
