Re: Tektronix UTek Spanish layout ALPS Green - What to do?

… It's a Tektronix 119-2696-03 (Spanish keyboard layout) and fun to see that it has no @ symbol on any of the keycaps. Of course we don't need that symbol in UTek UNIX! :-) The layout is a close copy(*) of the common Spanish (Spain) layout, which places a few symbols in the tertiary layer and seem ...

Re: Soooo. What's the age of this Model M 122?

Looks to me like the keyboard was indeed made in 1992, but at some point it was serviced and the entire innards (including the keycaps as well) were replaced with whatever available part there was (1394177 is a P/N for the plate, not a keyboard).

Re: NEC SKCC Keyboard and Ortek MCK-104Pro

Those keycaps seem to be a sort of "Western European" adapter set, with replacements for a select few keys on a limited amount of national layouts (Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, etc.; weirdly, Dutch looks to be supported ("IJ")). Some of the keycaps (ç/¿ and ß/` in particular) make it rather...

It is incredible how small those computers are... you may well have added a dozen inside the M122 and say that you have built a supercomputer cluster inside a keyboard!

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Yeah, they were cheap until that nos supply ran out. The thing is, the "NOS supply" ran out a couple times, before Mendehlson put out new batches. Also, for a long time, the Japanese keyboards weren't available, with only Chinese units for sale, until a "fresh" batch showed up (this happened twice)...

30 or 35 USD, depending on the batch, with not that high of a shipping (depending on one's location; in one purchase I even got free shipping).

Frankly I think I'd prefer a more understated F62 or F77.
This is why my intention is that, when the dyesubs come out, my keyboard will have "F77" keys instead of "Fn" keys.

There are only US-ANSI and Korean ANSI in the datasheet linked in the OP.
Indeed, but (AFAIK) Cherry hasn't said "these are the only varieties we'll be producing in this line of keyboards". If they indeed have, that does change things.

I bet terminal Model M keyboards will be ideal "donor" boards, so that begs the issue of ensuring the necessary recabling and whatnot is considered as an integral (or at least, a close-to-core option) part of the project.
