Does anybody know where is the photo posted originally? Surely it's Unsaver, but confused with the four keys around the arrow keys.
Does the PCB support them? Or replace it with home-made one.

I would guess something bad like KT vintage foam and foil or if you're lucky maybe some kind of hall effect or something.

Its very pretty nonetheless, if you are able to pop a cap to get a picture of the switch that would help with identification.

I agree! Curiosity was the main driver in taking this one home from the recycling centre.

Yeah doing a bit more research, I think this might be in the family of Taiwan white and black shaft. Suspect them to be type 2

I'd guess the small keys are Alps compacts or domes.

haha, that's possible, but i never saw that before.

what annoys me is there's no any info about it on google, or maybe i searched wrong words. I use "N860-9413","EPSON KEY BORD UNIT S803A-B", seems quite rare. :roll:

What is the weird little button on the back? Some pictures have it up and some have it down. Any idea what it is for?

Maybe it's the lower-case/fixed case switch you see on the "Blue Switch" Model Fs?

That is obviously from another keyboard, it has Windows key cutouts and is not configured for the bigass Enter.

This button is connected to the long weird feet under the keyboard. On my keyboard one of the feet wiggles, when I press it. Either something is stuck or I don't press hard enough. I'll find out, when I have the time to open and clean it.

An ingenious mechanism to lower the feet without turning over the keyboard?! Wow...

Hi, this in my head is a sort of more 80s/90s product If I could say that...

Here are some places to buy. No endorsement is made for these brands
