I may risk damaging the badge if i remove it from the top case. Get naptha (old-fashioned cigarette lighter fluid in the yellow and blue plastic bottle) and squirt a few drops into the depression in the case to make a puddle. Let it sit for 10-20 seconds and gently pry the badge up with a sharp bla...

I nominate the IBM Model M2 as an underrated keyboard. Sure the keyfeel is not as refined as its older brothers, but its small footprint and short keytravel make it easier to live with; when it actually works, that is. These things are a real pain in the patootie to open, fix, and reassemble. -Sent...

I'd say rubber dome Model M is extremely underrated, built like a tank, very tactile, dirt cheap, not mushy at all. BTW here's my ASCII running TMK because controller was fried, the layout fit my use well after remapping it to fit my need, switches was replaced by silent red because plate-mount swit...

I believe the one you want is “large” namely 7 units, the only available size IBM ever used. The smaller ones are for Unicomp’s own later keyboards. I’ve tried the metal washer method (using washers sent to me expressly for this purpose by someone who had done it themselves) but I must be doing it ...

But still bigger than cherry's spec, perhaps not new molds but adjustments on existing tooling. Should be safer but not absolute safe.
