Re: Alps Appreciation

Sorry to ruin your discovery there @hellothere and @ntv242ver2, but that's just a cover Alps used for the very tall Apple keycaps. They clip in to a standard Alps switch, in this case an SKCM Orange. Still, though, it's a rather uncommon piece to find, so it's a neat find nonetheless. :) So, if you...

Well, that's a Cherry keyboard. A Schneider MF2 Cherry keyboard. I think the code should be something like G81-3090 HAQ. Very nice find!

what layout is the keyboard in for the keys on the right?
You can set it to whatever you want -- a Nav cluster, a small numpad, a bank of F keys, all your choice

The original F77 had it for macros, they have some relegendable caps there.

Bought from another forum member. Let's see. That's a 10u spacebar and a 3u = key on the numpad. Cool.
I regret to inform you that this is not the 10u spacebar. It's 9u.

That's it, really; nice board :)

The fix shouldn't be too hard -- the switches are Cherry MY and I believe they aren't the worst to repair... you'll need some glue though, I think?
