I can help you with those if you are having a hard time :)

Well, I don't have any IBM keyboards in my collection, so I didn't bother to make a research on this topic.
If you can post a list of Buckling spring/Solenoid compatible typewriters I'll be glad to include it in here.

I bought a Canon AP 830 today, and discovered that it had  SMK inverse cross mount switches instead of the expected Alps ones. Buyer beware ... (Nice doubleshot caps, though.)

Got a Canon S-16 in the mail today - it has SA (or very similar profile) doubleshot Alps mount keycaps and Alps SKEW switches (+ 1 SKCL Green) which are surprisingly not too bad. There are a fair few non-standard caps but higher models in the S series (and others) have additional caps which would be more ideal for bigger boards.

What about gabriele ta 100? I found one and keycaps looks cool but what mounting they have.
