All prices are negotiable, and trade offers are welcome. Purchases are to be made via Paypal, and the buyer pays shipping. (I can do specific services upon request, otherwise my default shipping choice will be whatever is most economical for both of us.)
Feel free to call me out if any of the prices seem unfair, many are just estimates.
Also I live in Central USA. I am willing to ship worldwide but do know that I am unlikely to take trades internationally unless you are willing to pay shipping for the both of us. (Unless the offer is VERY compelling)
PM me or respond in the thread with any questions or offers. I will do my best to respond in a timely manner.
I've got a variety of goodies pictured, with some prices as well.
I'm not afraid to add extras to sweeten any deals. Keyboards exist in my collection that I may be willing to part with for trades but that aren't pictured here, so feel free to inquire!
UPCOMING THINGS TO BE SOLDAn Acer 6011 with SKCM Whites. 1 IBM Pingmaster (maybe). Let's split with BOX Pale Blues and BOX Navies. Some other things that will come up as I go through the pile.
Some of these things still need to be cleaned, which I will do in the coming weeks. That said, I am making preliminary listings with prices and will update them with pictures and such as I take them.
Focus FK-2001 with Alps SKCM White switches. This has been a mainstay in my personal collection for a while now. The switches are clean but worn, and while they are still very smooth, tactile, and clicky, it is notably "different" from NOS SKCM Whites. In some ways, I almost prefer them. The case and a few caps still have some yellowing, I haven't retrobrighted this keyboard, I didn't view it as necessary. I cleaned it from top to bottom when I bought it, but there may be some dust accumulated since I have used it personally. The plate is not pristine as it has experienced some minor rust over time. All stabilizers are lubricated. Comes with an original FK-2001 Box from Gainsborough. (Not the original box of THIS FK-2001, to clarify, and it does have some marker on it)
I like this boi, but it's time for my main collection to move onto new things. Looking for ~$60.
AEK with Alps SKCM Salmon.
A newer addition. I have cleaned the case and plate with isopropyl, and the keycaps in an ultrasonic cleaner. Unfortunately the cleaner may not have been enough entirely for the caps so I still need to give it another round.
The salmons in it are nice. I can't call them perfect, I have pristine salmons in my personal use M0116 and the difference is noticeable. That said, they are definitely very good. Very little binding and overall very smooth and satisfying to use. I think I prefer the weighting of salmons to oranges.
Will update with pictures.
Looking for ~$65
IBM Model M Keyboard (1 sold)
Got these guys in a recent purchase with the SSK as a lot. Really, I bought them because one of them shares my birthday, so I'm keeping that one and selling the others and my original. These are the new ones, I'm listing them separately as they are dirty currently and need to be cleaned and potentially bolt modded. They work fine, though.
Pictures will come in the future, both dirty and cleaned. Some were missing a couple of stock caps which have been substituted with wheelwriter parts and other spares.
Looking for ~$65 for either one once cleaned and such, if I end up bolt modding maybe like $85 or so. Currently I lack the cables for them but I will be looking to find some in the future for the final listing. If you want them in their current condition without a cable I'll sell them for ~$50.
1 IBM Model M Keyboard (Personal use)
This Model M has been in my personal collection for a while. It's been fully cleaned and until just recently none of the plastic rivets had broken. (I think one may have from a drop just a while ago, but I haven't noticed any difference in feel or sound). It is reliable and definitely the classic M. Comes with cable, stabs are lubed.
Pictures coming in the future.
Looking for ~$70 in current condition.
We have an IBM Model M122 Battleship. This thing still needs to be cleaned, and I never ended up making a Soarer's for the RJ45-plug terminal models, so it remains untested. Update: I botched a conversion job on it, need to fix.
Looking for ~$25 here. $35 when I fix converter, otherwise the cable is cut.
Looking for ~$25 for either one.
NEC APC-H25 keyboard, featuring NEC vintage linear switches.(IT BROKE )
And finally, my proof of ownership tag(s).
