Model F 5155 Restoration

Ground looks bad, but in working condition. Also look at the screw that maintains the PCB in place, isn't promising but copper tape or some tin would help.

Yes and no. I've slowly been getting some more hammers fixed but I haven't had a good moment to actually sit down and work on putting everything back together yet.

I proxy anything, including keyboards (キーボード / 鍵盤), from both Japan (日本) and China (中國). For more information, you may visit my dedicated webpage here: https://www.keyboards.es/proxying.html

I hope you do, this is definitely a DTA2018 contender (though Aer Fixus' Beamer restoration is probably the best of the year)

Nice work. If you have trouble with the controller, I have a spare Xwhatsit. I’d stick with the original if you can—Xwhatsits can be fiddly to tune, and your PCB and flippers have been through a lot—but if you need it, get in touch.

Unfortunately no, it's been on the backburner. Too much other stuff going on in life right now.
