Non-functioning/poor condition Model M

Hi guys,

I'm interested in a Model M that I can clean up, mod and get up & running. Preferably one that has all the springs and most keycaps (does not matter if some are missing). I really do not care about condition - as long as the internals are okay (going to bolt mod so broken rivets are fine), it should be fine. Cracks, blemishes, an inch of dirt, missing cables etc are fine! It also doesn't matter if it's a terminal board, M122 etc.

As you can imagine, I'm looking for something very cheap to work with as a starting point hence why I am looking for something damaged. Ideally, I'd like to buy from Europe to keep shipping costs low!

Do you need it to be a 101 key or would you be fine with an M122? If you're fine with an M122, I can hook you up, a friend of mine has quite a few.

I've got an M122, in Edinburgh, if you've a week or two's patience. I bolt modded it myself some years ago, but the layout never worked for me.

Shame its gotta be Europe, I've got enough parts to make a working but inconsistent M, just needs a controller.

Muirium - What price would I be looking at for that?

Yeah, sorry, I don't like paying all the import fees and stuff :(

How about £45 plus shipping? It’s in pretty nice shape.

Bear in mind these 122 keys are terminal Model Ms so need Soarer’s converter to work with USB. I have a few Teensy 2 spare if you’d like.

That price is VERY enticing but I feel like it's possibly in too nice shape. I'm looking for something cheaper and subsequently in worse shape (I already have some M parts, so, its more of a build using parts). I may still consider that if I get no other offers :D

Cheers!
