Boring intro to the project:
In december i fell victim to arson (my floor neigbour set his appartment on fire and a good part of the whole house burned down - he now is in a psychiatric institution) and i was not allowed to enter my appartment for a long time, hardly knowing how much it was damaged.
I also was told, that, because of toxins in the soot, all my remaining household stuff will be destroyed.
I soon realized that, if i could choose what to rescue, it would be (after my computer hard drives) my small keyboard collection...
finally in April after quite some fights over it i was able to retrieve some items from my appartment including my three beamspring boards i bought when they were not that high priced (and my computer and my 3D printer).
I already restaurated one of them back then (only the paint job was not good and i will need to redo it some day ). The other two were in really bad shape (water damage - especially the bigger one was more rust than actual keyboard) and i never got to work on them.
As it will be some more month before i can get back to my appartment (living in my fathers house until then) i thought i could just as well start a project i had in mind for quite some time: modding the most damaged beamspring to be a more "modern" and compact TKL board.
(if it works well i will make a dactyl-manuform inspired beamspring after that)
Today i took apart the two beamsprings retrieving the items i want to use:
