Title: [Ebay.de] IBM Model M Bluetooth-USB-Hybrid Controller Replacement Kit
Post by: chanceman42069 on Wed, 04 October 2017, 05:38:38
Hey everybody!

I've made a BT-USB-Hybrid controller for the popular Model M keyboard for no hassle, drop-in replacement. It's available on Ebay.de, but I'm also offering it outside of Ebay (at a discount). I currently (still) lack the privileges to start a new thread/subforum in the Artisan/Vendor section on GH, I hope it's 'legal' to post a link to my Ebay listing on here. (I find GH's rules and regulation very complicated indeed.)
I've already started a similar thread on Deskthority, but lest GH prohibits linking to enemy territory, I will leave up to anybody if they wanna go find it or not.

Here's a list of some basic features:


International shipping as a registered letter (with tracking).

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, I will be glad to answer them to the fullest of my capability.
Bitte zögern Sie nicht, mich zu kontaktieren, wenn Sie Fragen haben.
S'il vous plaît, n'hesitez pas de me contacter si vous auriez de questions.

You can find a video presentation of a converted device here:

Why does this not have more (or any) love? This is one of the best model M projects ever IMO. I wish you had these before I sold my model M's .

Thanks, I appreciate it. As to why it doesn't get more love, I don't know. Too expensive perhaps. It doesn't exactly qualify as a 'community' project I suppose. Then again, many Model M enthusiasts are quite capable of brewing their own, while others are older dudes who've been using that board since it came out and may not be appreciative of modifications of this nature.

On a sidenote, what do you mean by 'love'? More replies? It is kind of puzzling though: although this thread has been viewed more than 5000 times, I've only received like 3 enquiries regarding this project. Things are looking much better on DT, I gotta admit. :(

Wish Id seen this before now, I'll get one if I ever *finally* get myself an SSK!  for now handheld scientific box is doing well but nowhere near as slick as this. Love it B) Also I dont know if you would or not, but I could really do with one of the Bt bridge dongles , my wife doesnt have privilege enough to use a BT keyboard on her work machine so a dongle like this would be great for her.
