Also, Wheelwriter keyboards with an "ISO" instead of a "BAE" key are pretty unusual.

I would definitely get this one for the unusual keycaps.
Cool. If someone else really wants it just say so and I’ll pass on it, but if not I’ll probably grab it for the caps.

A bit worse for wear but I contacted the seller a while ago to see if they ship to Sweden. I think it could be quite useful when doing graphical work.

This has got to be the most beautiful keyboard I've ever seen.

If you're willing to proxy this for me please hmu :).

Can't buy it myself because tradera doesn't have customer service during easter and account registration for foreigners needs customer service.

I totally agree with you. This keyboard is P. Starck designer worthy. Really vintage '70s. My attempt to sign up on tradera stopped very early on the social previdence number request.

This is from one of the brochures on bitsavers.

Also, where are all the men in these promotional materials?

Thanks for posting! I love it! I’ve decided I’m going to build a “modern” version with maybe an AT layout. Not sure how long it will take.

IBM Typewriter with very interesting keycaps. I think it's Bulgarian and German and of course double dye-sub. The price is a bit steep though.

Rather old HP terminal.

Pretty reasonably priced AEKII as well.

Pack of three KPT-84, in boxes. US layout. Grey and black colour scheme. PS/2.
Available for "Buy It Now" within Sweden only.

Edit: Maybe not so hot after all (see below). I am not interested in this type myself, so I didn't do my research before posting. I just went by someone's recommendation to buy them. Sorry about that.

The build quality on these keyboards is really bad, I think chyrosran made a video about it. You can also find them regulary in germany, they are often sold together with music equipment.

My KPT-84 came with Hua Jie (?) Alps clones. Smooth, light clicky switches. I don't use it a lot, it's on P1 that runs my page scanner, but so far I haven't had any problems. The printed caps will probably wear off before anything else dies. Others of this model had KPT switches, and those may be less reliable.

Couldn't remember if this was already on here. Looks like it was relisted this morning.

So you are in Britain, love 80's vintage stuff and have a lot of empty space... This is your auction (includes some dirty keyboards of course)
