The only keyboards I've seen with an included dust cover was the Focus 2000.

WHY DO YOU PEOPLE DO THIS TO ME!

I most certainly don't need that, but now I am most likely going to try and get that and if I don't get that I will probably search high and low to find one like that. I will end up overpaying for that, a few months later another one will sell for half of what I pay.

This is my cover btw if you guys might have any questions, it just came on a sweet almost nos august 87 model M I just got.
I would love to be able to use it but I would have to raise my monitors up higher and I don't have the room. The guys at work jokingly called it the "jerkoff shield" lol.   Its really well made really thick plastic and im really surprized how clear it is. No yellowing at all.

I thought it might work on other keyboards such as a Model F, but if you check out the latest picture i added its pretty much molded specifically to fit the model m.

If someone will produce these covers for regular Ms, I believe a group buy will easily make 100 sales. Hint, whoever that likes talking about these things on Massdrop.

That said I don't use regular ms anymore so won't benefit from these...
Most of the modding can be done on your own once you break through the psychological barriers.
