> Is Focus FK-8000 (w/ some Alps clones) in a rough shape worth any attention?
I sold one in great shape with white Alps.tw_Type_OA2 clones about 3 months ago for a bit more than $100 US and it took a while to sell. The keycaps and calculator are probably the biggest selling points.

If the calculator doesn't work, there is a mod you can do to add a new screen that can do a bit more than function as a calculator. Chyros has it in one of his Focus videos. IIRC, it's around $50 to $75.

I wouldn't really mind buying one with all Futaba clicky switches.

=========

@jsheradin, I've bought and sold at least a half dozen Model M 122 terminal 'boards. There are two kinds of buyers: me. I'm looking for a cheap 'board I can fix so I can resell for at least $75. Them. Most folks are looking to have near perfect, ready to go keyboards and will pay in the $100 range for that. So, yah, replace rivets if a lot of them are gone. The adapter helps with the sale.

Some people know that Unicomp exists, so, make sure you note in your ad that they're IBM made. You might also want to check pricing on Unicomp's website for 122s and not charge too much more :D.

I like your adapter a lot, especially the block for the motherboard and the 3D printed USB end that makes use of the existing mount in the Model M case. It looks a lot prettier than what I make. I'd pay $15 for one. Like right now. Shut up and take my money.
Other folks might pay more. Orihalcon's are $35, IIRC, but those are external.

Where to sell? Well, ebay. There's a marketplace here, too.

Something you could also do is buy some standard keycaps for a 101 key Model M, pop them on the terminal board where they're supposed to be, and sell them with pre-programmed converters that have the proper layout. That would be cool. Even buy a Windows key for the left side function keys. I've thought about doing this, myself.

Edit: This might not have been the best topic for this answe but anyway, here we go. Sorry about that. :lol:

Hello guys,

I might consider selling a IBM Model F104 Unsaver in great condition, as I could need the money so that my parents doesn't need to sell their house. How much would you think is an Unsaver worth? Honestly I wouldn't really consider selling it, as it's still my dream keyboard, but well, maybe it needs to be.

Thanks.

Sure isn't, though you might get better results if you post to some vintage PC forums (or just sell it and get an SKCM blue board with the money :) ).

Well, if that's the case, how much should I expect to pay for a decent condition (at least 7/10) blue alps keyboard? 400€s?
Edit: from what I can tell, around 200 euros. Is this correct?

I'm cleaning out and wanna get rid of this Epson HX-20 with manual. Working condition (apart from the printer). Maybe somebody wants to harvest the switches and keycaps? What could I expect price-wise?

I have reached an endgame plateau with my F77 and my brown Alps TKL, and so I think it’s time to part with some of the boards in my collection that have gone permanently out of rotation.

However, I’ve not been buying/selling keyboards for a while so I’m not sure how to price these. Any thoughts would be most appreciated.

#1 Leopold FC660c white - Topre 45g - as new (used maybe a week in total as I didn’t have a home office at the time so I just used my laptop on my actual lap 99% of the time)

#2 IBM SSK (I have a standard SSK and an 1392464 with the Displaywriter keycaps, a screw mod and an LED mod; haven’t decided which one to sell)

#3 IBM F XT

#4 Apple AEK II in ISO-SE w. cream damped Alps - somewhat scratchy switches

#5 Apple AEK II in ISO-SE w. cream damped Alps - somewhat scratchy switches
Missing one keycap (num row “4”)

#6 HHKB Lite (note: rubberdome)

#7 SGI Granite w. cream damped Alps in decent condition

#8 Alps64 60% with somewhat scratchy SKCM Browns and AEKII layout and caps (w. the Esc keycap from an M0118)

Hey guys, can anyone tell me how much worth is set of:

Cherry white on black POM Caps in ISO-DE? Condition is good, I would say 2, when I would have to rank it from 1-6)
Caps are from a G80-1800 board.
