Got some brother keyboards, I'm hoping that at least one is capacitive. Will be interesting to see how they differ from their typewriters.

The perfect companion to my last acquisition... Pratically a side car to finally properly play at marble madness. I don't think may be something more vintage than 8bit style vintage videogame straight from '80s.....

I had a dry spell for a bit of not buying anything during this pandemic but I just grabbed this massive Micro Switch board.

That red anti-panic button is worth the purchase, so as the spherical caps to sanitise....ahaha!!

Not sure what's inside the thing but it looks really cool and I've been wanting to get a working TTY/TDD for a bit so hopefully this is the one

Costar CSK-2102. White Alps (not the early ones unfortunately...), Arabic sublegends. Appears new--immaculately clean, zero shine on the caps, and the cord is still in plastic. Worth sleeping in the van over? Probably not, but I couldn't resist.

I used to find a lot of this stuff for cheap prices... Now the supply has quite dried out and the prices have steeply increased.

Bought from another forum member. Let's see. That's a 10u spacebar and a 3u = key on the numpad. Cool.

The board has all yellow Alps, except the spacebar, which is grey Alps. RJ11 connector, I think. The "raspberry colored" key caps are double-shot grey/raspberry. The white keys are grey/white double-shot. Made in 1985. There's no manufacturer name on the PCB. One of the chips has an NEC sticker.

The only solid info I've found on this is that it's probably from a Cumulus TA-15 terminal. Looks like the company was sold in 1987 and/or 1994.

Me and several others all wanted this board for quite a while but that missing keycap is such a turn-off.

I regret to inform you that this is not the 10u spacebar. It's 9u.

That's it, really; nice board :)

Hm. I counted twice and was wrong. Math is hard. And I was excited about this keyboard :D

Anyhow, I'm going to post in the Marketplace to get two new keys -- the Y, IIRC, was hanging there by a thread and I don't know if glue will help. If I can get blank grey caps, I'd be happy. It also has two bad switches: obviously the 9, but there was another stem cracked on one of the keys for the num pad. Also a Marketplace request. EDIT: Of course orihalcon has Yellow Alps switches for sale, so I bought a couple.

I'm not necessarily looking forward to either clean these switches or building an adapter, but it'll be educational.

Also ... this isn't the only thing I just bought. One's just uncommon. Another is extremely rare (but not necessarily valuable, of course). A third's just fun. I'll post when I have a chance to take good pics.
