That numpad zero is MENTAL. In a good way!
What's it like to type on?
And you even got two of those original mice, very nice! Love this board and yours looks great.schwi wrote: ↑09 Jun 2021, 10:55Picked up a ton of stuff today from a 75 year old who told me he was just running out of time.
You can look at those here, but I'll focus on the M0110A since this is a keyboard forum I suppose :p
I've been looking to get one, and all of this came free! It's not a very special keyboard or anything, I suppose, but I can be proud. The keyboard wasn't mentioned in the listing, so I was kind of praying he had it, but even if not it would've been a stellar haul. The switches actually feel remarkably clean, I love this thing! Definitely needs a bath, that'll happen soon enough.
M0110s and yellowed spacebars, name a better combo...
Very nice! Looks like it has always been there.
I always typed with floating hands and it feels very natural with the 5251 for me. No wrist rest needed, but it'd surely look nice. Were there even original IBM wrist rests that came with that model?
The choice is yours of course, but I would recommend cleaning out the old foam and dust protector either way as it will still go bad and corrode the metal and affect the plastic.
For sure man. That foam is nasty stuff. It's an even bigger pain to get off after it's worked its way into the switches or caused damage to the metal and plastic. Prolonged exposure to the offgasses from the foam can cause the switch housings to form crystalline shards on their surfaces.
