Had that Maltron on my watch list for a week now but I'd only buy it to resell so hopefully whoever bought it gets some good use out of it!
I only posted it so I would not buy it myself ;) I allready have a kinesis contoured, I don't think I could learn yet another physical layout
...
Which is at the office, where I'm not, the thing I miss most in my work from home environment right now.
Luckily my Uni has some truly disgusting keyboards so I'm not missing much when working from home :lol:

I guess they found more SSK's at CR, because this one has the same date as the one's I have:

I saw that last night - I'd snap it up in a heartbeat if I were still serious about collecting, but I'm trying to downsize as it is already.

Those Keycaps are outrageously cute. They reminded me of space cadet ones. So thick and spherical. The question is would it be possible with the help of a3d printer to adapt that mount on a different peg such as cherry or something else?

Theoretically you could but it would be criminal to use them on anything else, these are hall effect switches after all.

Thanks for all your hints, it would be nice if you could always specify what you are linking to.

It's a stackpole switch.

Here is a rare standalone Fujitsu leaf spring keyboard with a metal backplate.

you have chosen the wrong category for this. It'd better the ugliest keyboard one.

This one from a swedish marketplace - looks interesting.... I don’t even know what it is, but it’s an IBM buckling spring, but it’s... different. The inner assembly is marked 1393181.

It's from an IBM Wheelwriter.

Ah of course! So it’s a source of keycaps and springs - maybe model M flippers? Anything else of value for a scavenger?

Yes. The caps are very good quality 1-piece, although it is not a conventional set and there are non-computer sub-legends. Left of space bar is the "Code" key which is highly prized by people who like to split the space bar.

On some, but not all, I have found a spring over the barrel of the space bar which makes it stiffer. That may not be for everyone, but I like it, and perhaps there is a certain key that you would like to stiffen up ....

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

I would definitely get this one for the unusual keycaps.
