Converter for IBM Model F XT

Since I am not able to build it by myself, I kindly ask the wonderful people of deskthority for such a converter. Please help me out!

1) Talk to ebay seller orihalcon, and ask him if he's got one of these: in stock.

2) Get mad at me for not pointing out beforehand that ebay seller orihalcon is actually DT member orihalcon. :mrgreen:

3) Once you've gotten the converter, look up the remapping that I posted in keyboards-f2/examples-of-soarer-convert ... ml#p390990 so you can have a good starting point for whatever you want to make in your own.

4) Enjoy!

Thank you very much for your effort and answer. I have already contacted orihalcon via DT but he has not responded yet. I just thought that somebody at DT has a spare converter and is willing to sell it to me.

So long I will wait ; ) but I am very excited to try out this keyboard in particular if it will work actually.

orihalcon is generally pretty active on these forums, so he should be able to respond soon. If not you can also buy one from tinkerBOY: ... -firmware/

Note that shipping is from the Phillipines rather than US in this case.

I should have more of the AT/XT ones in about 2 weeks and you can PM me for the discounted PayPal invoice price :D
