Hello Deskthority!

Say hi to my own Beamfoot :) one of my fav beams, i am so lucky to have found the opportunity to buy one.

It's missing the right "field +" keycap + stab, if someone has a spare from a 5251/5285, please contact me. In any language.

Thanks!

Great find, congrats! Can you confirm if the top case is plastic?

The top case was always plastic on this model. The top cases of the 6580 and the 4978 were also plastic.

i bought it from a collector who had the whole 5285 system abandoned. It was quite expensive

Is my third beamer, i'm absolutely in love with this switch.

the missing key will be a problem, i'll try to fit a cherry keycap or 3D print.

I just found one on ebay. It looks like the Field + key on this one is a weird rocker style tab key:

Yes. Is the same one. I have to get married and already bought a displaywriter here so one beam has to go.
