I have recently ordered a set for my M122 from Unicomp and I will be putting them on shortly but so far, so good.

Re: What happened to the Blue Cube adapters?

Why not use this chance to upgrade to the Bluetooth/USB controller board and skip the cables/adapters altogether?

Re: Keyboard Firmwares: a survey of controllers and converters

I am surprised nobody has mentioned Jorn and his wonderful viewtopic.php?t=17388 BL-USB Bluetooth Model M Controller Conversions. This solves the issue right at the root instead of trying to adapt.

Re: Repainting / repairing IBM 3278?

Waxwood: The trick to painting these successfully is in the prep. Start with as clean a surface as you can get and give it a light brushing with a magic eraser style pad but I would hesitate to use anything too abrasive. Plastic specific paint with a bit of flex agent in it (auto bumper paint) is go...

Re: IBM Model M - Reproduction Labels?

If you don't need the Bluetooth side of things (I hate wires!) it is still very useful as it does allow for USB. I'm not too familiar with the Soarers features but the new controller board solves everything I'd want it to do. I've decided to go ahead with the bolt mod although I will be sending the ...

(Also, this isn't the first board we see here with a Hexatek label on it. Are you in the Montreal area by any chance?)

IBM Model M - Reproduction Labels?

I recently picked up an IBM Model M 122 for restoration/modification, this site has been an absolute godsend so thank you to all!
