25 Jan 2015, 19:02

Hello,
  • Here there is a link to a similar post of my IBM AT that I posted before
  • Here there is a link tp a similar post on my IBM 1390120.
This will eventually be a post with lot of pictures of this restoration and transformation process.

Tips/Findings in this threadp
  • The ANSI conversion can be done. But we already knew that thanks to foat. Refer to the original guide. This is just a copy.
  • joc discovered that the numberpad of a 122F can be transformed in a 4x5 matrix. Refer to this post. Thank you joc !
The photo tools:
  • D800 + nikkor 35mm 1.4 ... very nice body and even nicer lens. One can get easily addicted.
  • Debian. I still have not found a reason for using something different.
  • Darktable. A tool that changed my live.

Regarding copywrite of the pictures:

  • Use them. Enjoy them. Sell them. Do whatever you want with them.
    If any sells at $6.5M, share it with me, please:-)

Some posts still missing...

1.- Tribute to the original layout

I can only start this post with a tribute to the this keyboard as it was during the last 28+ years.
Somehow I feel like I have betrayed it by doing this transformation, but on the other hand it was also requested from a long epoch without any use. This transformation will give it a new live that I hope that it will enjoy as much as I expect.

Thus, following pictures of its original status, once cleaned and rust removed.

I had to repair it. Check the following section 8

[quote="idollar" post_id=205751]8.- Foam Repair

I did not want to change the complete foam just for the broken part. I wanted to keep the board mechanics as close as possible to the original. So I decided to patch it.

I normally use two layers of the foam that I have. I used only one to keep at the right thickness. The broken part got an extra layer, two in total.

18.- Software

I am using TMK modified to light LEDs as per this post.

You can find a push request in GIT also here.
Which works but Hasu decided not to integrate with this code :-(

I do not use Soarer's solution as it is not Free Software.

Actually, after the first post (IBM AT), I asked myself if the forum was the right tool to use. I am not trying to document the restoration but to share some pictures with people that may be thinking in taking apart their keyboards.

If anyone thinks that this should go in the wiki, I will not have any problem to add it. My only problem is the time that processing this amount of information takes.
