Cheap Model M, just needs a clean:

I'd almost be willing to bet money, that a swab of iso alcohol on a Qtip would get those sticky keys going again, and if so you'd have a very cheap model M on your hands.

I think it will take a complete dis-assembly (requiring a bolt mod to get it back together) because the 3 membranes are probably going to need a good soak to get rid of the dried sugar-water that is probably encrusted on and between them.
And here is a whole new pinnacle of dumb:
"DO NOT VOTE IN THE GEORGIA RUNOFFS, THE DEEP STATE WILL BE COLLECTING EVERYONE'S INFO. THIS IS A CHARADE, MEANT TO IDENTIFY PEOPLE WHO DON'T VOTE DEMOCRAT. STAY HOME. OSSOFF AND WARNOCK ARE A SMALL PRICE TO PAY."
"THE ONLY WAY OUR VOICES GET HEARD IS by #boycott the vote"
"#WALKAWAY FROM RINOS BRAIN KEMP AND BRAD RAFFENSBERGER. BRAIN AND BRAD THINK THEY CAN USE DOMINION VOTE MACHINES TO ELECT CRAZY WARNOCK AND LIDDLE JON OSSOFF. IF ALL PATRIOTS BOYCOTT RIGGED #GASEN ELECTION, THE SUPREME COURT WILL ORDER A REVOTE! - #ElectionFraud #KAG #HoldTheLine
