Re: Yahoo! Japan Auctions Thread

The 5576-A01 uses brother buckling springs, while the 5576-c01 uses regular buckling springs and the 5576-001 uses alps plate spring - it is a bit confusing, yeah :lol: As for that Hitachi, I have no idea, but the caps are certainly interesting.

Re: IBM model F's tribute

Ahhh, What is it? a conjure?. I only needed some more pics to finish the overall picture... how fussy you are!! Ok the xt industrial has green Alps if i don't go wrong and the m50s should be replaced by 6019273s... But consider them as an artistic license. 😁 the xt has oak membrane switches i believe

Re: Yahoo! Japan Auctions Thread

subcat, thanks for the quick notification on that batch of 5576-001 last time. I managed to pick up one of the -001 and 3479-JA1. They are both pretty beat up, but the -001 version's switches are in really nice condition (despite 5 of them being completely broken). Hopefully I can harvest a few fro...

Re: [Restoration] IBM 4704 F77

lots of them were destroyed because banks often go overboard when it comes to dealing with sensitive information. obviously no customer data is going to be stored on the keyboards, but that doesn't stop them from being shredded just to be safe.

Re: [Restoration] IBM 4704 F77

Congrats, that's a really insane find! As far as other 4704s and the unsaver go, the rarity should look something like this. 1 - F77 (4 units now) 2 - F62 (~50 units, most of which came from tinnie's 2012 haul from China) 3 - F104/Unsaver 4 - F50 5 - F107 I believe this is the first one to be found ...
