Rumor on the street is that it was purchased by the seller for $5. That’s a hell of a profit margin!

Honestly, everyone should build their own xwhatsits. My BOM list cost just 8 euros in parts plus PCB (around 14 euros for 5 pcs).

Given the recent prices, it's becoming more and more interesting to manufacture fake vintage keyboards using modern technology... Build them, bury them in the backyard, wait a few months - profit!

I am posting them here because others may want them. However, I don't really want these because I either have one of them or I cannot buy them.

A nice rarer topre board up for grabs. Bought one from the seller a month ago for 15 usd, and can highly recommend.

Does anyone know the switch that might come with this Monterey K2AX branded STAFF? I've just bought it hoping the switch turns out to be blue alps. This is probably the most gambling purchase that I've ever made :roll:

Looks like you didn't end up buying it. Did you discover something when talking to the seller?

After the response from kelvin, I actually did some google here and there that lead me to this listing in the past https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mtek-Monterey- ... _cvip=true

I ended up asking him to cancel my transaction which I was so glad that he accepted it. For me, it was too risky to spend $100 for what could be a mitsumi miniature :lol:

According to the Deskthority Wiki page for the Tatung 71739, the Tatung Einstein TC01 uses General Instrument Series S950 switches

That looks like it has general instruments SKCC, its not really different from SKCC, but it is rarer. Wish they shipped to USA or I'd try and get it

It's always fun to see a tatung keyboard since they're known for making rice cookers in Taiwan

I see your Alps and raise you an ALPS!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/TOSHIBA-T1200X ... 3559710866

See a thread on these keyboards. This board is probably the same as the SIIG Minitouch, but made to fit a Toshiba T1200XE laptop. Alps mobo, so probably Alps switches, instead of Monterey or Alps clone.

Might be fun to build a case or just as a donor.

$42.75 plus shipping. Shipping is based on your location, not like, "$195 shipping and handling charge."

You need some salmon Alps switches? You don't mind unsoldering them? You want some Alps-mount keycaps to go with them? You want to pay $11 for 63 (I'm pretty sure it's 63) keyswitches and caps? Here's your auction. Free slow shipping, too.

Note that, while I was online actually ordering a bunch of these sets, someone gave the ebayer a negative review. That dropped his percentage to 97.8% on 87 sales.
