New post [Workshop] Televideo PC Keyboard Pinout/Adapter

At page 47 you can find the schematic about 970 keyboard. The A6 ic have 2 types. 8049 / 8749. So, maybe it is a design change as you told.

New post [Deskthority wiki talk] New page for HP C1405A not showing up in categories

Hello.
First time post in any forum. I've been creating a new page for an interesting HP keyboard I purchased a while back.
https://deskthority.net/wiki/HP_C1405A

New post [Group buys] Beam Spring 104+SSK Reproduction Project! First Batch In Stock, Shipping early next year after New Model F Project

If I had to go with battleship, it would probably be that also. A 122 key layout modified from a Model M-101. And if I went with a minimalist layout it would be the HHKB, like the F77 HHKB layout in the Model F project.
This may have been brought up before but what about a design/layout like the Dactyl

New post [Group buys] F62+F77 orders now open! New Kishsaver+Industrial Model F Keyboards

I’ve been holding off on asking because I haven’t fully read the manual but I am curious if it’s possible to use Xwhatsit instead of the default firmware.

New post [Want to buy] [WTB] IBM Model F62 Kishsaver, Any Beamspring keyboards in original box and NIB IBM Model F104 Unsaver

I agree it would be lucky chance to find one. There was an eBay listing probably a year ago that was a beam spring display writer in an original box that was US Air Force inventory and I don’t think it was ever used. It obviously went for big money. Your best bet is to set up some searches and hope

New post [Keyboards] supplier for alps compatible parts that ships to europe

Nobody stocks the dolch set anymore, the only possible way to get them would be second hand.
TH do occasionally release new sets, currently there's a groupbuy (? I think) for a white on black one.
You can also still find the blue and grey one with some resellers.

Shame it’s not MX. You’d point out that it almost certainly still works, even in that condition! ;)

New post [Keyboards] IBM 5100/5110 keyboard KBD_P values

I've been studying aspects of the IBM 5110 recently (like replacing the PSU), and I think I have the info needed to make a replacement keyboard (i.e. what voltages are needed across the parallel pin of the keyboard). I've posted those measurements here:

This post is really for the handful of people who read my original post regarding the Toshiba T1500 keyboard I got in a trade.
Today I finally found the time to go out to a local computer museum, where I was able to test the board on period correct IBM XT hardware.
Good news! The board

New post [Keyboards] Looking for a full-sized keyboard with ISO-DE layout and media keys (and silent red switches)

TL;DR: I re-bought the model I sent back but will give it a good try with modding after it arrives. At least the "tape mod" under the PCB and foam mod.
But I wanted to say, I appreciate you guys carrying the thread on.
