Help me find a cheap space saving Alps keyboard to buy.
« on: Mon, 18 May 2020, 19:44:44 »
I sometimes have to spend a lot of time at my Mom's house, and I'm actually considering just dropping off one of my Models M over there to use, but I'd like an alternative. Yes, that's right, a travel keyboard because I'm a maniac.

I am thinking I'll pick up a Matias Tactile Mini thing, but I hear that the KBParadise 60% is decent and I can choose a variety of Alps clones. I'll take any space saving vintage buckling spring or alps as well, but it needs to be well under a hundred and easy to convert.

Apple M0110/M0110A,can be had for under $100 on Ebay,ADB to USB converters can be easily made from a Pro Micro.

Lanrefni's suggestion is good. You can commonly find SKCM white Alps boards of various types on Ebay for $40-50 as well if you look.
