Feel excited about there're still lot of kbs with 3rd gen clicky fujitsu leaf spring switches worth to experience.

That numpad zero is MENTAL. In a good way!

What's it like to type on?

Crisp, light clicky with mild sounds, unwilling to stop after typing begin. :)

One of these days I'll get a Facit typewriter, but until then I guess this calculator will have to do

Just got this bad boy. Early, linear space invaders. Dirty, but the switches still feel very good. Terminal board, so I hope I can somehow convert this. Does anyone here know more about that one?

Picked 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...

And you even got two of those original mice, very nice! Love this board and yours looks great.

As if I want anything to do with these cunted mice. They're awful, but they look cool, I suppose. Lol.

Thank you!

Hahaha, I've seen some people retrofitting them with a new PCB from a modern mouse with an optical sensor. A very hipster thing to do and to use, but why not?

Fair points, but you guys seem to forget that part of the hipster experience is to torture yourself without hesitation.

It's mint, won't even have to change the foam anytime soon. Always preferred the 327* just from pure looks, but not anymore. The layout and shape are near perfect for me. I love it.

I always love seeing the insert card on these things. Chef’s kiss! Do you use a “floating hands” method or did you get a giant wrist rest?

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 wristwrest needed for me, but it'd surely look nice. Were there even original IBM wristwrest 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.
