Re: Honeywell Micro Switch and USB interface

That was a nice read :) Thank you.

I also might need to get one of those IC-Clips, that's a cool idea to avoid modifying PCBs.

Looks like the exact same photos to me. You'd think somebody would have bothered to clean it by now.
For 3K I would ask for current pictures of the keyboard ... these are from an auction more than 3 years ago.

Re: Micro Switch 53RW4-1 keyboard review (MS magnetic reed)

How about some stone age material more fitting to the vintage of this keyboard? https://i.imgur.com/Engiv9f.png That first one even looks micro switch-y. Do you know if that's the case? Although the four toggle switches are a bit of a wildcard. Not my photo but this keyboard module comes from a TI ...

Re: How did you found your internet nickname?

It is ... what everybody calls me in real live :D

Slom is an abridged version of my last name. My first name is so common that there are always two or three of us in every meeting; using Slom (or the diminutive Slomi) avoids constantly asking "which one".

Re: Univac Keyboard (Micro Switch) - Now USB converted via custom TMK scan module!

No idea about SW.

For SD the really good ones are 3 pin and logic scan.

But I think all have been converted in one form or another by now.
