Worth taking pics for the Wiki?

Thought I'd post a thread that I can come back to for finds that may or may not be worth putting in the wiki.

How about this keyboard (in process of cleaning) DataComp DFK-700-F2 with Futaba clicky, tombstone key caps and blue spacebar Futaba clicky switch. This has very good key feel but the click is on the way up?

Of course. There are few if any keyboards with MA41 switches that are properly documented.

I know these are Mitsumi but what are these called? I can't seem to find them in the wiki. These are from a Commodore PET.

I'm not aware that they have a name as they're undocumented.

Okay, thanks. I'll take some more pics then. Is the Locking caps lock known? Looks Futaba like. Looks a little more "beefy" than the Futaba linear lock but maybe it's the angle.

It looks the same to me. I thought that was the annoying one, but it's not — there was another MD series switch with four terminals, and the owner failed to determine where the other two went to and then vanished.

I took some pictures of a Dictaphone Dual Display system that had Cherry Capacative switches. It's uniqueness is that it has lit switches on it and some triple shot key caps. Do we need pics for the wiki or are we good with that's there? We probably don't need the whole system but there's not many pics that are new information.

By the way, this was an IBM Displaywriter competitor which made it of interest to me.

Will do along with this keyboard. It's a beauty, historically speaking.

There's only one person here who's going to find not one but two Stackpole discrete switch keyboards …
