I can all but guarantee we will be seeing more finds in the near future. I have been seeing a number of local Craigslist posts looking for...

Ouch. So are Beamsprings like the new Bitcoin of the keyboard world? I wonder if I were to a buy one of these for $8-900 and ask $2000 for it on eBay would someone buy it?

If you want a Beamspring: "Don't turn your back don't look away and don't blink." Someone could get lucky with a BIN especially if there are a lack of them on eBay for reference.

It looks like the Great Model F Drought of 2017 continues unabated. Only two or so months ago, I turned my nose up at a 122-key with a Soarer's Converter by Orihalcon for $175. I thought they were asking too much. I've been kicking myself daily for that piece of dumbassery. I am currently offering ...
