What is this thing?

Sanders Associates 720 Data Display Station keyboard, hacked up for some other purpose. These things were designed in the 60s so the diode logic is no surprise -mine's missing the circuit card, so it's neat to see, though it's still in full Sanders livery.

I guess I never paid much attention to french layouts before; I like the fishbone legends for pgup/pgdn, and the "M μ" key

Marquardt Butterfly's in decent condition (judging by the picture). Although 46$ is a little steep.

The second one is not Tipro MID, but Tipro KMX.
Both lack side covers and a controller, and can therefore be used only as additional units.

Zenith ZKB-2 $150 BIN +$50 from Egypt

https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ZENITH ... :rk:2:pf:0

This is Model 163-40-4. It has soldered pins instead of a detachable header on the PCB. Looks in excellent shape. Has the case been painted, or is the white balance off?

Not sure, if I have posted this already, but here's a 35G4743 (date 23-07-96): blue-label terminal IBM Model M from Greenock plant, with Czech QWERTZ and a Soarer converter.

https://pc.bazos.cz/inzerat/100284941/IBM-Model-M.php

It's priced at 2000 CZK ~ 80 EUR. If someone wants a proxy, I can do that (assume ca. €20 shipping).

I don't know what this thing is, but it appears to have Cherry M61-0100 switches. Unfortunately it's missing a keycap :(

This little guy is pretty cool. Anyone know what it is? Looks like it has Cherry M8 switches. Neat.

Just about shat myself thinking this might have been a beamspring from the looks of it. It was not, however.

Here's the monitor if your collecting a full Beehive system. I thought it was a beamer too. Are those keycaps too big for Cherry switches? I'd guess so.

Good question. I tried mine with a Soarer's converter, but it doesn't work. With hid_listen I can see that keystrokes are registering, but it's the wrong protocol or something.

You try with a XT/AT converter or with the terminal one ?
