I have been a lurker on Deskthority for few months now, slowly amassing some of the vintage switches and keyboards found on the Wiki and the forum. I recently found an old Yaskawa Keypad on eBay with some interesting looking switches. Upon closer inspection, they turned out to be a previously unknown SMK reed switches.

They are double-pole capable and illuminated by way of a statically-mounted lamp.
