I did not find any other indications of a date of manufacture, and I think seebart is right; in electronics year/weeknumber datecodes are very common as I suppose that year/month codes would often not be finegrained enough..

another Burroughs TP110

As suggested earlier, here some picts of the TP110 I recently acquired, probably from the same seller as where y11971alex got his: also pretty dirty due to ages of humid storage. The switches need cleaning and lubing, but they are certainly not a disappointment.. The picts speak pretty much for them...

Hi Jan, ah, interesting !

was able to detach the keyboard-part and desolder a switch, so there are three pictures of the switch here; I did not see any way to take it apart without destroying it, so I didn't. After cleaning the stem the switch turns out to be very smooth and linear. They are reed-switches; I managed to actua...

Ha, I was wrong and was mixing up your 713 with the 617 which came out a few years after my 609. And then, when I checked, it turned out I was also mixing up your 713 with the 731 of which I found a manual online, and which is actually a few years older. So sorry, no manual for the 713 either as far...

All switches in this keyboard are made by Clare Pendar (was very happy it was not Keytronic or Hi-Tek, since I have a few of them in other terminal keyboards and don't like them much...) and they are all identical. I have not yet been able to open this beast further, so the only keys I have not chec...

Damn it. I successfully identified the main keyboard in Brainstorm (1983), but I posted it on geekhack a few years ago and it seems to have been lost in the rootworm hacking. I've totally forgotten which terminal it was now (and didn't expect to lose it), so now I want to identify it again. Anybody...
