[Vendor] scrounging day

I am on my way home, but I stopped at a recycler. Green Alps with double shots and so many black vintage cherries! Some Fs, no ssk or unsavers or 4704s.

black vintage cherries? you mean black keyboards? or black switches...
If there are black keyboards, I am still searching for a few 1800 white on black doubleshot keycaps

Might be interested.

In the Fs, I mean. And maybe if you have more than one green Alps as I'd imagine that's taken!

Other than the ludicrous 10.5u space bar that is a surprisingly modern-esque layout.

Sweet baby jesus. What year was that Unsaver made? Shot's too blurry, but that sure as hell looks like it might be an RS/6000 and not an AS/400.

Too many switches, too little time (and money).
Great finds! :-)

Now that I've got an FSSK I'm not wanting for any other Model Fs (though that may change if I want to build an FEXT). But - please save any and all Model Fs you can find even if they look super junky. The capacitive flippers are useful.

I am very interested in one of the cleaner (least dirty, smoothest switches) green alps boards you picked up Cindy. Not sure if there is a list for those or not..

All Model F terminals have "ISO-style" layouts, including the 122-key versions.

They can easily be modified to ANSI, I did mine that way, exactly the same method as I showed in my 122 guide.

Except for the XT and AT subset, Model Fs were terminal keyboards, never intended for "personal" computer use.

Guys dont swamp me with pm. There are 8 unsavers diff kinds and diff legends. Australia wants his and he gets first pick. I will post pics. Then we will go from the list. Seems like hypersphere was next but I dont recall and dont know if he still wants one
Give me few days to get home and get the car emptied. I am hauling 235 keyboards. Yes there are AEK I and II also, 35 in total. The ecomm is the only was i will keep these orders straight.
