No German IBM Mµ keys? I’m still short of one, or several, of those. Preferably single piece, to match the rest on my Kishsaver.

Nice try on the timestamp, unfortunately that's not how those work :lol:

Unless you want to sell that pretty looking screwdriver :lol:

Fortunately, Deskthority is not reddit ;) (AFAIK, timestamps are not required here)

The "ii) German 2 piece keycaps" does have a german Mµ key, if you can put up with the "2 piece" keycap ...

Agree, Wiha makes some damn fine screwdrivers.

Edit: Actually this is a nut driver which can be used to open a Model M.

I am sorry but I forgot to attach that little sticker on all the items I want to sell. All the keycaps are back in their bags and I am too lazy to rearrange then with my timestamp. I can make pictures with my timestamp on the other ones, if you want ;)

Hey if a bank can be shipped through the postal service why can't this sofa? Also i'm still interested in that Wiha driver. I don't have one with the soft touch grip (pm'd) :)

Is the Bigfoot case compatible with the XT innards?

€30 for an ANSI Model M that just needs some key caps sounds pretty reasonable to me.

Those wheelwriter caps buckling spring? I’d be interested if it weren’t for the dodgy alignment of the number legends. Besides that they’re easily better than Unicomps.

I thought so as well, but only one potential buyer, who did not pull the trigger although I suggested to split shipping costs of 16 Euros.

Yes, Sir ;)

Yes, the Wheelwriter typewriter caps that I have had were extremely well-made and 1-piece.

Pity they don't match up very well with what you need to fill out a standard computer keyboard.

And if I haven't said it enough already, when you break one of these down, always check to see if it has that spring under the space bar.
