This button is connected to the long weird feet under the keyboard. On my keyboard one of the feet wiggles, when I press it. Either something is stuck or I don't press hard enough. I'll find out, when I have the time to open and clean it.
An ingenious mechanism to lower the feet without turning over the keyboard?! Wow...
It's quite a nifty construction. Here's a video of the mechanics and 2 pictures of my cleaned keyboard:

Does someone know this keyboard ? And the switches that are being used?
I think that I had a buckling spring knock-off that looked like that many years ago.

It was dramatically inferior to an IBM and caps and parts were not interchangeable..

Looks like it's related to this one.

Hi folks, my first post here. Picked up this keyboard. It has no logo or stickers, and I don't know what it is. It has some German keys on it (ß), and a key saying "EXTRA TEKEN" which is Dutch. The connector is of a phone cord type.

Anybody knows what this is?

It kind of looks like an old Wyse

"Teken" is obviously a Dutch word. That spelling is not found in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or German.

@Findecanor It indeed is! I mixed up the "EXTRA TEKEN" and "FUNK" keys in my head, so I originally wrote the key said "EXTRA FUNK". Although this would be a truly amazing key to have on a keyboard — who DOESN'T want extra funk?!

I found it in the Netherlands so indeed it most likely is. I edited my post.

Finally one I can almost certainly identify.


This is from a Mai basic 4 terminal. I have a very, very similar model, a 4314 keyboard iirc. Anyway, it has 3rd gen FLS. Reading some documentation and stuff it seems these could also come with rubber domes.

I would bet on that being FLS3 or domes; probably domes as this doesn't have the nice PBT dye-subs mine does.

Thanks for the lead! I found this page which looks to have the same keyboard: https://archiwum.allegro.pl/oferta/star ... 09903.html

I'll try to find out if it has rubber domes, but it feels like it. Definitely nothing clicky.

Yeah I would stay away from this one. Not in great shape and I'd say it's VERY likely it has domes.

It's already in my possession :-) Maybe I can pass it to someone who could use it for parts.

Can you not remove a keycap to check switches? haha

Hi! I just got this nasty keyboard, i bought it thinking it could be a Tulip or Monterey (based on its layout), hopefully with white or blue alps, but this has this weird orange-yellow SMK-like switches. I can't found anything in the wiki, anyone knows?

It's clicky and sounds really good.

Thanks!

ok, found it, it's a podworld
Is this one the same?

I'm not the owner, I thought of buying it but I think it's too expensive for what it is.
