Plus with extra keys and caps the keyboard could be added more keys judging from the PCB and plate? Cool.

Is it feasible to fix f122 with m122 case?

Hello, guys, just like title saying, I've been confused if this could work for quite awhile, but no chance to test it in reality. I know here some guys should have finished same work years ago if I still have my memory right but can't find specific info unfortunately. So maybe start the post to ask ...

Regarding the buzzer, does it work?

Original aim is to test the xwhatsit&solenoid driven board. The solenoid worked so I think the buzzer should also, though havn't done the test in reality.
I wonder.. the top case of your 5281 is metal or plastic?

Re: My latest acquisitions (Fujitsu Magnetic Reed, Micro Switch SW)

I have a similar one but in very bad condition, atleast typing on the keys which are still ok is a very different feeling. I love it after have experienced so many kinds of switches.

Nice hunt!
