Re: This is so sad to see...

You all do realize that is what we look like to the vintage computing guys. Always cannibalizing some old keyboard for switches or keycaps, thus destroying a perfectly good vintage keyboard that could have completed some collector’s vintage system. I’m not sure we are in a great place to judge the ...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Just came across this board on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-IBM-6112884-Japanese-Keyboard-New-in-box/163999606972?epid=1723025453&hash=item262f2368bc:g:2WgAAOSwx0td~ln4 It looks a lot like the 107 key model F but is missing the F row and apparently uses Alps SKCC switches. Has anyone here...

So selling any type of keyboard is fine particularly adding such false and useless info as a "Model-F" in the title to describe the keyboard, is valid to you? Where’s the scam and false advertisement? Seller clearly said GENERIC Model F CLONE and showed the switches, where is the scam? The keyboard...

Re: Stuff I got in China (Poll)

An Olivette keyboard with Snap-Action switches. Works in similar principle as the Alps Plate Spring and IBM Beamspring. How does it feel? Pretty JUNK-Scratchy, inconsistent, shallow travel. Don't even sound that good on this board. Overall, not very good. Well that's dissapoiting. Scratching this o...

Quadex Q 5000 ,not sure what kind of switches but it looks old and is kinda huge.
It's most likely microswitch. From the keycaps and shape of spacebar.

First they take away the beam springs with solenoid, saying "Nobody needs a solenoid these days!" Next, they take the regular beam springs, then the pingy Alps, then all clicky switches, then linears and finally the rubbish rubber domes. Next thing you know, were in a God-damned touchscreen society...

How much is a IBM 3101 in this condition worth?
I think showing the inside is more important here since that's where the key feel lays.You can repaint the case anyway.

Hard to tell what is this. I found zero info about that keyboard. Maybe its first documented.
Style looks like ibm, or rabbit.
It's AT/XT?
We need more photos. Back, inside etc. Pcb can tell us much.

Lookin good, btw, how heavy are these switches? Those in my TI Terminal are very light Thanks! I'd say the switches on this board are on the heavy side. They do actuate pretty high up but feel fairly heavy when bottoming out. Swabbing on a plastic safe silicone spray lube did help with the famous s...
