Like the 3277, the controller is integrated on the PCB, so there is no easy way to separate the controller and replace it with an XWhatsit. You would probably have to cut the traces and solder on jumper leads for the rows / columns.

I'm on my phone so I can't see the detail but what makes you think they aren't alps, btw? If it's lack of a logo, the blue Alps of that era were only marked on the back and had to be desoldered to see the logo. I'm not sure but some old white Alps may be the same way.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

I think an omron switch of some sort was one of the other possible switches in the 555, so it could be something similar.

Nice find, and a rare board nonetheless.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

That's a pretty rare pre-omnikey Northgate, but unfortunately not the even more sought after 555, which would have blue Alps.

Just saw this come up a few minutes ago. Nice looking board, though I am not sure what type of switches it would have. Looks to have a metal case.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

On those JX's, he mentions that the original winner didn't pay within 48 hours, but that doesn't really stop the original high bidder from bidding again on the relisted one, so could have been that same buyer since we don't really know how high their bid was to begin with. That would be frustrating...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

That's another from my beamspring 'harem'. I figured it was worth more than the 5251s I've sold in recent months at $1399, but hard to say. The conversion to USB on the 3277 is a bit more involved for sure.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Yeah I know the prices are crazy these days. I've paid less for several different cars over the years. I think my wife's last car was $900 and mine was $1400. We've recently moved on to better cars, but not by a large margin, lol. It's tough to find a not-completely-rusted-out vehicle up here in New...

It arrived to me in that condition, unfortunately. I am always really careful with front-printed caps because I know how easily they can rub off with overzealous cleaning. :-(
