Re: [WTB] Model F XT Scroll Lock

I tried but never got a response. They've relisted the caps a few times but don't seem to have the one I need.

[WTB] Model F XT Scroll Lock

I'm in need of a replacement Scroll Lock/Break stepped keycap for my IBM Model F XT.

Aside from that, the stabilizer can go in one of two ways. Check that the middle of the stabilizer isn't sticking up when it's in pla...

Model F Stepped Keycap Replacement
