Great find, congrats! Can you confirm if the top case is plastic?
The top case was always plastic on this model. The top cases of the 6580 and the 4978 were also plastic.
Thanks for the data, also I replied the pm you sent me.

A little yellowed, but other than the contamination shield they look to be in pretty great condition. Have you tested the terminals yet to see if they work? Would be so cool to see a working double-sided setup with these! That "0" key in the corner is just as unusual as the speaker, it looks almost...

Re: IBM Model F BigFoot... 8521

I have the same bigfoot and I did the conversion without a problem using an arduino pro micro and soarer software. Be aware, if using pro micro you have to desolder the TX or RX resistor (i don't remember exactly which one was) in order to have access to one pin of the pinout recommended.

Re: HELP with IBM M122 Conversion

I solved this problem using the QMK firmware, so.. just try that and I'm sure that it'll work. Also, try to put all the switches low except the 8th, put it high.
Now I have some problems with the RIGHT SHIFT key, I can't insert it properly in the keyboard, it gets stuck.

Re: HELP with IBM M122 Conversion

Can you confirm if that you're plugging the keyboard into the converter before plugging the converter into the PC? Do you know if you're using TMK configured for "interrupt" mode? It may also be worth trying USART and Busy/Wait. 1) Yes sure, the keyboard is connected to the converter and then to th...
