[WTB] IBM buckling spring keycaps

Looking for a set of APL caps, bigfoot XT caps, and I am also interested in any sort of IBM keycaps with funky text/icons/sublegends. Just PM me with what you've got and your price. I'm located in North Carolina btw.

Couple of things:
i. I'm in NC too, beers?
ii. I probably have the caps you need re: XT, but they're in my 'box 'o caps, not sorted and honestly, I'm not sure I could recognize them.
iii. I know you probably know that unicomp still makes the APL keys. I was pretty happy with the quality of the set they sent me.

Might have to take you up on that. What part of NC? I travel between Charlotte and Raleigh a lot. As for the XT caps I'm mainly looking for bigfoot XT caps. The alphas don't really matter but I want the numpad and modifiers. I've considered Unicomp APL keys but I want the real deal since they'll probably be going on my F107.

I'm in Charlotte.

I have unicomp's APL on my F107 with the bright white keycaps in the other locations.

Great minds think alike it seems
(or fools seldom differ)

How does the Unicomp set look on the F107?

Pretty good I think.

Are you going to the ATL Mech keyboard meetup at the museum's opening?

Probably not, it's a bit of a drive and I've already got plans for this Saturday. Looks like it would have been interesting though.

I have complete Model F 3178 keycap sets. There's a few interesting caps on those for sure. Let me know if interested.

More motivation for me to get started on my F107 restoration.
