Re: IBM 3278 powder coat color

Interested to see what we can all find. I'm debating whether or not to paint one of mine too. I want to match the original paint as much as possible. Need to paint the inside steel parts for sure, unless there is a way to recreate the heat treatment. I will probably just go with black on those piece...

[WTB] IBM 5140 keys and 7u Alps spacebar

Looking for a few items:

-IBM 5140 "Ctrl" keycap (x1)

-7u Alps mount spacebar with Alps style stabilizers to match 5140 keycaps (x2)

-Original IBM "Pingmaster" cable (2+)
If you've converted your Pingmaster by replacing the original cable (with the DB9 connector), I'd like to buy it.

Re: Great/Interesting Finds

Just about shat myself thinking this might have been a beamspring from the looks of it. It was not, however. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113633107814 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Beehive-International-DM5A-Computer-Terminal-Green-Monochrome-Monitor-/...

This little guy is pretty cool. Anyone know what it is? Looks like it has Cherry M8 switches. Neat.

Do you have a left arrow key with the green sub-legend? I need one for a Model M SSK.

Bought it off a user here as an “unknown blue alps board”, so didn’t play the “Ebay Chicony gamble” this time. :)

Blue alps Chicony. This and a Chicony logo on the cable were the only manufacturer designations i could find. No model sticker. Pretty happy about the NKRO.

Is that an N or a Z in the picture? I'm missing a black N key in an alpha set from my shipment. Got two Z keys instead. If that is an N, can you send it to me please, 7bit? :D

What are the chances of getting a 00 key (double zero on numpad)? I know it's way late, but if we are changing sets to help with MOQ... now's the time, right?

I think earlier rounds (5 maybe) had a much lighter more translucent red color. Looks like you've received a mix of batches. :( I have a set of red alphas with the lighter shade with the exception of the scooped f and j keys. It's too much for my OCD so I don't really use them. If anyone has lighter...

7bit, can you please explain why I'm missing 800 keys from my order? Many others are also missing large portions of their keys. I'm sure that encryption is going to be useful, but with respect, I'm concerned that you seem to be ignoring this other issue.

I'm "missing" around 800 keys from my shipment. 7bit, can you please explain? Good lord. Are you sure they're from this round? None of the Round 7 (Algol) caps have even, to my knowledge, been ORDERED from SP yet. I wouldn't expect anything from Round 7 until 2020 (not kidding) Missing keys aren't ...
