Re: Tried to sell 62 Amber Alps for $200 (after having already listed other items separately) and then this happened...

here's a good example of my experience on eBay these days: - get a new notification for one of my watched terms: "silicon graphics keyboard" - open eBay to check what it is - see that it's just the bigfoot case, without PCB, caps, or switches, listed for $45 shipped - it's probably andj, but I click...

It’s true most people who’ve been “around the block,” as it were, definitely ask the seller about switches on eBay, but a lot of new people in the hobby won’t have a prior bad experience from which to think that asking the seller is that important.

Re: Alps Lubricant FOUND!

nice! looking forward to the response from threebond, though I would be surprised if they still sold that specific lubricant, or were willing to make new samples for testing. so it'd be a big plus if they could advise whether they currently sell lubricants now with a similar formula.

Re: [WTB] IBM 3278 or other beamspring

Hi, thanks for the response. As mentioned, in an *ideal* world I'd like one <$1000 shipped but I'm open to consider other prices. I totally understand the effort required to restore these things and would be happy to personally put in the labor and restore one, no matter how filthy it is :)

[WTB] IBM 3278

Hi all, I'm currently looking to own an IBM 3278. Prefer US layouts. I am located in the US (northern California). Let me know the board's condition and what price you're looking for. In an ideal world I am looking for $800-1000 USD range, but send me PMs and we can work something out. Thank you :D

alps keycap compatibility

hi all, as I get more and more into vintage alps boards, I have noticed that some of my alps boards have keycaps that are not interchangeable, i.e. the slits of the switches seem to be different sizes. for example, the keycaps on my ibm 5140 with skcm brown alps have much thinner stems than the keyc...

Re: [WTB] Alps SKCM Cream

have you tried a cream board before, chyros? they are _quite_ nice and _quite_ expensive -- about the same as blue alps right now. hope you get a good deal given the work you do on your channel.

[WTB] Ortek MCK-84

Ideally with white alps but no strong preference; chassis only is fine too since I'm looking to swap in other alps switches. Located in U.S.
