Nice pics! yes, those are typewriter caps, you have a keen eye. I have 2 sets of wheelwriter caps, one i keep on my xt, and the other will go on my f122 once I get it up and running (the capsense pcb is bad). I did dye the esc myself. I now put it on the ssk, which I am using on my desk now.

All these boards have 270 degree 5-pin DIN connector. And barcodes :)



I got the M122 without keycaps so I had to fill it with what I got. If anyone has a spare M122 keyset, ping me :). Also, F122 is ANSI-modded, and Unsaver and M122 are next in line.

If you were to sell your unsaver, what would you want for it?

You can pry it away from my cold, dead hands :)

Strictly academically speaking, I would consider a kishy (or F77), a 3278 variant or some Alps unobtanium. "Consider" being the operative word.

Do you have a story about where you found it? I would love to hear where you got it.

I can't say it's an interesting story. Cindy found 8 them recently, and after a bit of ruckus I was among lucky seven to actually have privilege to buy them. It was back in June. There's a post on DT, with a couple of pics of the restoration I did.

Nice collection! Is that a 1386303? Love it, the father to my beloved 1390120 :)

Jealous of the unsaver as well, one of the few BS boards I would consider adding to my collection.

You're close. It's 1386304.

As for Unsaver, it attracts looks, that's true :) They pop up once a 12 to 18 months, so patience and vigilance are key.

I think my F107 actually weighs more, but I'll have to weigh them to be sure.

I was actually a little worried, I made the keyboard tray myself but I think it is holding just fine  :))

Went out to get the mail, and on my way back found something shocking in our overflowing trash bin.

156328-0

Was rather shocked. Testing has so far confirmed all but the Pause key are working flawlessly--the Pause key seems to blink when I test it.  Haven't been able to test the F keys though. All of the keys are working, although the space bar seems a bit stiff. Whoever owned this last removed the space bar but didn't reattach the stabilizer when they put it back. That's been fixed now.
