I didn't see a thread for this and there are a lot of unique Micro Switch keyboards so I figured now is a good time to start as any.

Think I might have some caps that might work on those boards that I harvested from gas station POS terminals (used to work at a eWaste recycler)

I didn't see a thread for this.

Yeah I think I know why. :P. Only like two people have these things. I want one though. Mmmm. That TI Keyboard looks sweet!

Very cool stuff JP! That Space Cadet board is droolworthy! I definitely need to start getting myself some boards like these soon. Now that I got myself a couple high quality modern builds I am happy with, I have been increasingly moving to vintage boards/switches. Mainly SKCM/L & SKCC ALPS based boards at the moment, but wouldn't hesitate to grab something like these if I came across one at the right price. Thanks for starting this thread up man, GH needs more vintage love!

I'm glad you and others here appreciate this stuff.  :thumb: I hope my hoarding efforts can inspire others in a positive manner either though collecting or through the design of new stuff inspired from vintage boards.

Also my latest acquisition:
