Should I stretch it first?
No never stretch or strain the spring. That destroys the spring and you have to bin it.

Re: IBM 3277 find (mini beamspring) -> Restoration log added!

This was the first beamspring I’ve seen appearing there in all this time and I’m certain I’ve not missed a single add :| So just l...

Re: IBM 3277 find (mini beamspring)

All beamsprings are rare, but I believe they're referring to the data entry keycaps on yours, especially since it's an azerty keyboard. Incredible find, especially from a French perspective! Yeah that's a rarer model of a rarer model :D Thank you all guys! My partner is from Belgium (they use Azert...

Re: IBM 3277 find (mini beamspring)

Thank you! Yes they are indeed triple shot, didn’t even knew that existed xD Can you explain a bit what is rare about it? The keyboard as in a 3277 66 key version or are you referring to the specific keyset that is on it? I do know there also exist is 78 key version.
