[Keyboards] What's Wrong with a Thrift Shop?

I agree! I got into Northgates when a fellow DT member spotted an Omnikey 101 US ANSI layout on eBay for a rather low price and urged someone to buy it. The board was rarther dirty, but I restored it and it turned out rather well. After that, I have just been patient, looking for Northgate postings.

[Workshop] Me too! Beamspring refurb

There is not much... nothing you can do about corrosion under the soldermask. It's due to delamination humidity age moisture etc.
The thing to do is just copy the design and order an entirely new pcb.

Some more observations along the way:
1) I have some trouble switching between my laptop (normal ANSI), my desktop (ANSI Filco Minila Air which has a less staggered bottom row and a very troublesome right shift) and my work PC which has a full-size ISO-UK keyboard. Apparently, I will have to standardise

[Workshop] Epson Q703C-AA Clean up and conversion

Well I've poked around this thing for way too many hours already. And not a peep out of the board.

[Keyboards] SKCM brown tactile leaf question

Yes, this is what I recall from taking some SKCM brown Alps apart several years ago. My recollection was that the fit of the components was like that of a fine bolt-action rifle.
