[WTB] Unmodified IBM SSK

Holy cow, only 7 bucks!? I thought it was in the range of 50 - 100 :lol: I guess it's a little bit more if they also remove the paint (ex: sand blasting). Thanks for the info!

It depends on the interface you're using.
I have Kodi with a skin that let me do everything from a keyboard, no mouse required.

If you do restore it, PM me what you need exactly as I have a donor board.
Free of charge, of course, only pay the shipping (should be around 8 - 10$).

This restoration is amazing and the powder coat job is soooo beautiful. It is more grey than eggshell but classy nonetheless.

For the keycaps, here's an idea to complement the indy blue ones: Unicomp blue APLs (I never saw them in the wild, I wonder if they are as faded out as the orange ones).
