Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

On second thoughts, the 86... serial number seems to indicate it's an MCK-860 after all. Still, rather stupefyingly similar.

Yummy blue ALPS then. Oh goodie!

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Got myself this great condition Chicony 5160. The caps seem ALPS mount to me (hasn't been sent yet). I'd never seen one with a phone-style connector before...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Came in second, wasn't even aware someone had posted it here. Pretty sure to have blue ALPS, I think. If shipping costs to Germany hadn't been so high, I might have bid around 60€. Congrats!

I don't think the large Esc key is a given for all BTCs (see here). The steep reverse slope keycaps remind me of Olivetti, except for the bottom row. Come on, someone solve this mystery...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Paleolithic Cherry board with unique numpad keycaps. Pad printed, triple-shot or dyesubbed, do you think? (Has doubleshots elsewhere...) Looks to me like it has at least some pad printing on the numpad... Plus one key is very spcl ! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%...

Thanks Chyros, I should have remembered. I actually have one sitting in the basement, I think.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Anyone care to hazard a guess what was in this unbranded board that I missed on German eBay? Sold as a mystery board for around 30€ plus shipping as seller wasn't quick enough to post a nudie shot. My bid was 22€ and now I'm curious. I was thinking definitely ALPS mount caps. It's always the chance ...

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Yeah, got myself another 5182 yesterday (pine white ALPS but on each one plastic stab clip of Enter and right Shift broke during shipping), they really aren't built much better than the lowly 519Xs. Still, nice catch!

A lovely Zenith ZTX-11-Z on eBay here for a reasonable price, I suppose. Should have ALPS SKCC green.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Thanks, ball00n, much appreciated. White Mitsumi Miniature switches are actually some of the best tactile switches ever made in my opinion (I have yet to convince Chyros to re-review them in their "lubed" state...). That is if you grease the sliders with a bit of WD-40 (I believe the metal tops of t...

Yep, also pretty sure it's ALPS. I just thought someone might know the layout / make.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Well, the winkey ones are all crap, as are the IBM (not an M2) and the Compaq (top left). While the two large boards with the stripes at the top look similar to old Wyse boards, they aren't. They look very saucy, though! The board at the top of the second row also looks interesting. The pen holder g...

Have a NIB black Cherry G81-3000HKNDE, which means a full set of NIB white on black double shot keycaps. How much would that be worth? Thanks!
