From our very own Ekeppel. I am adding black keys to mine just like this but leaving the F and J keys white.

I found this literally 5 minutes before this got posted here! If only I could afford such a wonderful keyboard.

They are from a Selectric II, and actually more of a deep brown than black.  I love those old Typewriter keys, and they come in some nice colors to spice up boards like this. :-)

The prices are up
And from the woodwork they come.
Maybe, with some luck.
