Out of curiosity, what have you assigned the key between Backspace and ºª\ to be?

Just a FN key to switch to Layer 1 (Now just F keys and Volume control)

Still for sale? I’ve plenty of caps and a fair few switches looking for a home. But I’m a picky snob!
Don't think it's for sale at the moment, it was a groupbuy that ran in September or so of last year. Kbdfans have been hinting that it might make a return at some point as an in stock item, but when and how that might happen is anyone's guess.

5 different types of IBM Shift keys. The top left has a wire on the back; the right one does not.

Behold!

This was by far the most time consuming 'build' ever. I started resembling this thing at 9 am. It is now 4:30. I encountered a problem at nearly every step of the process.

Well worth it though. It's.been my dream to own one of these ever since Chyros did his review.

There will be a nice thick coily cable at some point.

Thanks!

I've got one before photo here. I didn't do any build photos just because I figured there have already been a number of F 107 restore threads. I'm not really adding anything new other than the color scheme :)

That gold in the recess all the way around was neat! Along with your desk, it looks like a million bucks :)
Good job on restoring. Really gives me the urge of hunting one down :roll:

Got my second Model M13 today! It came in pretty great condition and with a still-wrapped manual.

The original did not read "pretty good", but "pretty great".
One may find it to be an insignificant difference, and in such a context it certainly is.
Nevertheless: text between quotation marks is deemed to be an exact quote, not an approximation.
That is precisely the purpose of quotation marks - or would you put a semicolon at the end of an interrogative sentence?
Call me old-fashioned if you like :mrgreen:

By the way, nice keyboard indeed :lol:

Proofreading is part of what I do for a living, but I'm afraid my quotes are way north of what you can afford as a student,
especially if you collect keyboards :lol:
