And I'm still looking for one. F50 that is.
It was a bundle with the computer / monitor.

Here are the key caps with bank lingo on it.

Got the IBM Model F Unsaver in the mail yesterday, what a beauty. Converted to USB ready to go.

Ordered some APL keycaps to fit the ANSI key config.

Never been a fan of the unsaver but I'm glad you're happy with it. Have you got anywhere with repairing the kishsaver?

Nice collection you have going there. Those bank keys on the 50 key are neat. Looks like you have a nearly full set of clear re-legendable key caps. Are you customizing the 50 key to use?

The 3277 Beamspring 66 Key version arrived today, Love at first sight, this keyboard rocks.

I am going to work with emodude to get the new PCB he is working on just right.

EDIT: One of the most compact beamsprings...def not the smallest one as I have discovered.

One of those small 60% beamsprings with blue keycaps (can't remember the name) But they're extremely rare and probably not affordable.

Have you considered buying one of these? It's out of reach for most of us, but perhaps within your means.

Where would I purchase it?

That looks badass.

I think this is what Wobbled was talking about.

Blue Double shot beamspring caps is indeed EPIC.

What model is this board? 3277 variant???

They have some serious swag going on there.

Those blue key caps, blue walls, big computers, lab coats and lots of hair.

Yes this keyboard in terms of rarity would be up there with Space Cadet, Symbolics, 4704 -77key.

It's a dream keyboard.

It's a matter of finding the boards not money for me.

That's why even if you are a billionaire, trying to grab these boards when they show up is a challenge in itself.

Yeah...I know what is El_Barto. :lol:

I have no idea who Scottex is.

I will not name the seller nor does he want to be named.

Also why doesn't the wiki include the 2260 keyboard

I know you know what it is, not sure you know who you bought it from but that's OK. I mean with that layout it's pretty obvious. :lol: Looks pretty similair to me...

Ok cool.

Which beamspring is this?

A 3277 variant? Has 5 keys less. In fact perhaps this is what the board is above with the blue caps.

I really wonder how you get these pictures but don't know what keyboard it is?!? :lol: That's the 5251-66 Key Beamspring variant. kuato's blue keycap pic above is the same keyboard, it's much more rare than the fullsize 5251. If I remember parak also owns one, that's the data-entry layout also like your 3277.

Wow, amazing did not know. Is there a version with blue caps or did he take caps off a different keyboard?

I have a bizarre search style ;-)

Thanks for the link

Ahhh found the blue keycaps.

Pulled from a IBM Selectric then put on the beamspring.

That is a great idea!

Just did a quick scan on ebay, no selectric blue keycaps.

It's the rare IBM Selectric I (The Blue Bomber / Selectric 721)

http://typewriterdatabase.com/1962-ibm- ... typewriter

http://munk.org/typecast/2013/01/31/the ... er-part-2/


That is like the Type Writers Space Cadet in a way.

There is also purple keycaps.
