[Photos] My collection of keyboards.

Hi there.

Hereby pictures of my collection of keyboards.
The last picture show all the IBM F 5291 139750 "Bigfoot" keyboards minus one, number 12 is in a box because I took it apart to clean and restore (ongoing project).
Until I found DT I never gave much thought of keyboards, they are just "flat panels with key's" to type with. But now a whole new universe is opening up for me. Wauw, what a lot of technology is to find in keyboards. Well, one is never too old to learn something new I would say (59yr).
Because I'm not used to the jargon, and not familiar with all the brands and technology I still have to learn a lot. I'm sure the other DT members are willing to help. Somewhere in the coming weeks questions I will post regarding the restoration of the dismantled IBM Bigfoot.

Cordially,
Happydog.

Wow collection! It puts mine to shame for sure lol. How did you acquire all you bigfoot model F's? Do you just nab em on ebay or did you find them all in one place? All I know is I have some work ahead of me to catch up :)

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
