I only notice it now, but that unsaver in the picture is not a Model F :lol:
Anyway, myoth, the unsaver in the pic, on the fifth row, with the red ESC key, should be an F, right?

Because I followed Geekhack tut by YakMN and you'd need to file the keyboard case in order to fit 1.5U. Anyway I wasn't scared to do so, but I preferred the 1.25 ones due to the key design I consider more inline with the ALTS modifiers. They give an F122 retro look style to the mod notwithstanding t...

Re: where to get a usb controller/adapter for a 5251 beamspring?

You can also ask to Steven. He lives in Hong Kong and made for me a fantastic F3178 USB converter with solenoid. The converter doesn't need any soldering and it's connected straight into the keyboard male plug. I bought mine on ebay (https://www.ebay.it/itm/IBM-Model-F-3178-USB-Converter/16365344663...
