Clicky ergonomic

I'm trying to find an ergonomic kb with mechanical switches.  Preferably with tactile feedback.  I've looked for years for an IBM M15 and have given up.  I'm currently using a rare Reveal ergonomic with mechanical Alps switches.  It's not too bad but I was wondering if there were other options (other than DataDesk Smartboard which I didn't like too much).

Reveal - never heard of it.  I have a Northgate Evolution though (white Alps):

I find it too hard on my fingers, though.  So I'm using the MS Natural Multimedia most of the time.  It's a membrane, but feels clicky enough, especially compared with the MS NEK4000.

This kb may be older than you (lol)…it has an original XT style connector (pre-PS).  I’m guessing 1985 vintage. I think Reveal was a generic office products name.  

I looked at the Northgate once before.  I didn’t like the funky layout of the arrow keys.  
I used to have an original Northgate but threw it away a couple years ago once I made the move to ergonomic keyboards.  Should have kept it I guess.
