Crashing current prices for IBM Model M


02 May 2020, 18:47

Model M prices were quite steep in recent years, so I decided that something needs to be done with a sad state of market.

I finally got to the point when I probably should part with my IBM model M's bought over the years.

I tear them apart, about 2 years ago to do a proper cleaning (which I did with ultrasound, boards still need to be cleaned), learn how to bold modded them (which I didn't) and add protocol converter (only to a few boards that I gifted to some people).

Now I am left with a lot of complete boards (i will need to assemble them), and after that prices of model M will temporary go down.

For those interested: sadly boards are quite recent, manufacture date 89-91, mostly Polish terminal layout.

The 1989-91 ones are still very good, though! Cool that you'll be giving others the opportunity to buy one of your boards.

Heck yeah. I'll buy one because I'm mental and collect these things for no clear reason!

I may be interested in a known good membrane from one of the 122 key's if you've got one in your hoard depending on how mine is once I dig into it.
