Xerox terminal

Today, I came across two Bell telephone terminals in a junk shop. It looks like they are made by Xerox. Not sure what these would have been used for, but maybe a telephone operators terminal.

I'm going to do something similar with my Matias Tactile Pro. I'll probably keep a lot of the original alphabet keys, and swap out all the other keys that fit. Nice job.

This keyboard is so awesome. I love the colour mix and work you put in to convert it. Did the donor typewriter have reusable switches, or did you have to mod the keycaps to work with something else? And the back plate, did you reuse or fabricate a new one? If these questions have very obvious answer...
