Are the red and blue keycaps original?
Those are replacements available from a seller on eBay. I bought a set myself as I had a board missing a key.

Re: Old beamspring photo thread

No, I was talking about the 4979. Those 4978 keyboards are as common as dirt. They're a dime a dozen. My grandmother used to give them out as Christmas stocking stuffers.

Re: Old beamspring photo thread

The IBM 4979 is just as cute and is beam spring. IBM terminals.jpg I've never actually seen any photos of it other than in IBM ads, so there's no chance of finding one of those either. You mean like this one? 4978.jpg or 1nNqdMuP15E or this one: https://deskthority.net/viewtopic.php?t=16725

Re: My new keyboard came in!

[Edit]
At first I thought it was IBM 3741 or 3742 Data Station replacement keyboard module. Punch-card era is a telling clue. On second thought it's more likely to be a 3277 like someone else mentioned.

That’s nuts. 10X what it was worth last year.
12X more than I paid for mine. I think we can all agree these are not worth $3600 but certainly a bit more than they were last year. Just a classic bidding war. I wonder if the buyer actually pays. I guess we wait and see if this gets relisted.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

I recall an F77 with Greek legends selling for $3750 or some similar figure as a BIN. Definitely a lot more F107's floating around but of course the one that sold recently was a prime, unmolested example. I see this as someone raising their hand at an auction and never lowering it.

Re: Measurement Systems 3" Trackball and RAM Optical Instrumentation Controller

The bearings should be replaceable/serviceable but they were screwed down tight (and I don't have a screwdriver big enough to rotate that tight without damaging it). The bearings will pop right out on their own sort of. No need to unscrew anything. If you rub a ball bearing a while it will loosen u...

My trackball just arrived. It is so comically large in person though. My hands are minuscule in comparison. I tried getting the bearings freed up (5/6 so far) and will clean the ball with some isopropyl alcohol. A bit of cleaning, new bearings and fresh grease this thing should be decently smooth. N...
