Vintage Cherry G80-0519: https://www.ebay.it/itm/254214882016

Warning to all those who want to buy it just in order to harvest the vintage switches:
desolderting them activates a built-in curse which will instantly and irreversibly destroy any computer to which they may be connected in the future.

Damn ...

I'll offer a low amount, I'm not that interested in it but it'll make a fine addition to the sheet I (and others) made, it needs to be documented properly !

Just noticed the same seller has more (vintage/weird) keyboards.

This model seems to be undocumented in the Cherry database as well. The listed price is on the pricy side, but the seller takes offers.

Man, I have to give credit to some eBay sellers, they document their product much better than some members of the community :lol:

I'll add it later on :)

Yes, the seller really did a great job documenting the board in this listing. Stunning looking sphericals on this board btw, the board seems to be in a really good condition overall :)

What type of switch is this? I mean, look at the stem in the last picture ... lovely caps, but I don't think they'd fit anywhere else.

Looks like a variation of Cherry M7 series with a straight bar mount, but I could be wrong though.

ETC Power Glide 105 with White Alps for £25. I bought this earlier today but the seller cancelled my order because he "didn't put the right postage on the listing". Great deal but a little steep for me.

Nice, but 1200$ nice? If I had that kind of f. you money, I'd still get other things first. (I have a model M that I rarely use.)

Wow, an IBM Model F107
The bottom row appears to be somehow disaligned.

Thats a very nice F107 though. Best of luck to the seller.

Indeed a nice F107! If anyone needs an unrestored one, PM me. The restore is definitely time consuming, but you'll get to enjoy it for a lifetime!

That F107 is indeed a real beauty :shock:

Here is a Unitek K-156? Appears to be documented in the wiki.

I'm guessing this has neon blue-yellow ALPS SKNG. And it probably makes its user immortal as an added bonus! :lol:
