I picked up my very first IBM F107 yesterday from customs. It was on a long journey from Australia to Europe.
I bought the keyboard from the amazing fanpeople - can't thank him enough!

Anyway, I wanted to give a quick overview of what I have done with the parts so far:

Step 1: Lining up all pieces of the delivery
199968-0

Step 2: Testing the keys (the case is drying a fresh layer of RAL-7030)
199970-1

Step 3: Working condition - the first test of the assembled F107
199972-2

Still open is the solenoid and some adjustments with the feet.

Well I started pulling my Model F apart to reveal the decades of grime and scum within!  Thought you guys might like to see to progress so far.  These pictures are a few months old now as I've not had chance to contine with the restoration for a while, but I'm going to try and carry on.

Apologies in advance for the spotty tablecloth!

Here is my board it is BS keyboard from Full Size IBM Model M made to SSK with Lotus Elise Theme (Chrome Orange)
I owned this car back in 2011 and I sold it because my lifestyle just simply change (I have a baby boy), then our family need a bigger car.  I asked one of the Thai keyboard artist by the name 6664 to made me a memorandum of the fun I had with the little Elise SC 2011.

Such a good looking keyboard, has all of the best curves of IBM's plastic cases and the best of IBM's internals. Shame they're so rare and increasingly unobtainable  :'(

Brought the F62 in today, to compare with my F107.

Added an IBM 5155 Model F XT to my collection!
235920-0
It came pretty dirty, full of destroyed foam, hair and even some bugs as an icing on the cake. It also originally had a Spanish layout, and I'm working on swapping them out for UK or US language keycaps. Converted with an internal Soarer's (visible in the cable hole).
