> 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.

Hi there
I want to offer an Ultrasound Classic 1MB in exchange for a blue alps keyboard in the WTT category. Is that against the rules? How much is it worth? From what I can tell the price fluctuates between 150 and 500$/€s.

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?
