I would guess it is a Oemmax MCK-860
I have an OEMMAX MCK-860 and this does look like one as well but I have never seen it with the RJ10 connector.

EDIT: Also looks like there is a din connector that comes out of the case which is interesting.

I think some manufacturers use a Taiwanese era-date. Year 80 is ~1991.
This is correct, a lot of keyboards are made in Taiwan and WYSE was one of them.

Aah too bad. It was worth a shot, anyways.

So the keys are desireable? Any particular reason? I might as well learn something. :-)

ADDS VT220 Converter

Hi All, I finally got around looking more into this keyboard and making the converter integrated into the keyboard. https://i.imgur.com/HvlfnIG.jpg So this keyboard has the option to run either in AT mode or polling mode. Polling mode I'm guessing is the ADDS protocol and I will have to dive into th...

Re: Keycaps: UK ISO Cyrillic a thing?

Yes they are a thing. Strangely enough though the only ones that I have found are handmade.

You might want to try to replicate these, they are carved into the plastic somehow drilled maybe and then infilled with ink/paint.

Re: Tandy1200HD - Tale of the Unknown

These switches are an early attempt in solving the problem with Gundams and how loose the caps feel on them. The new grey switches had a line of plastic in the grove that holds the caps so that they now fit more snugly. I love little tidbits like this. Where did you find info about these switches? ...

I saw an update to the "Cruciformer" GB/IC that said it supports Nexus sliders. Have these also been found to crack keycaps? I was confused when I read it but cant find much info.
Nexus slides can crack keycaps because they were based on box stem dimensions.

The case and the switches are fine but the switches are the wrong mount. The Kalih caps don't use the MX mount like the switches do.
