staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhp. By the way, my order from Unicomp just got sent out where I tried to get them to give me a full set of white on black keycaps. Let's see what happens. Also coming back is my M13 and 4 industrial cases.

My only problem with the industrial cases is that I'm not going to sacrifice my good terminal cases with the long legs for these stumpy legged cases, or the square badged models either. So I only have a single board to put in them at the moment, a 1991 terminal, though I've got an extremely late Lexmark from September of 1995 that doesn't work that I might send out to Unicomp and get fixed up. So that's 2. I guess I could take apart a few of my POS terminals and put them in cases, but keep one intact. I need another Soarer's converter for that crap.

Vanilla Model M with specialized Quotron financial key caps.
244409-0

Model M found saved from a building being renovated. Lots of unusual custom keys. The relegendable keys on at the top function row refer to different cities in Indiana.

Thanks. It's actually a high quality sticker I got off a guy who makes them on eBay.

Here's a new keyboard. Still wrapped in plastic when I opened it from its repair in 2002.

Never seen one of these before, would love to own one of these type of off-branded boards some day. Very cool.

I bought this one solely because of the logo. It was just super interesting to me. Occasionally I'll spot off-branded Model M's on eBay but usually they are not that interesting to me considering I already have enough Model M's as it is. This board is a bit of a mystery to me. I really couldn't find much. My research led me to Eagle Computer Inc. which manufactured one of the first IBM PC clones and is known perhaps more for the tragic fate of it's CEO. However I don't see a tie to this company since they went out of business by 1986 and the logo is different. I also see a few similarly named companies from my google searches.

You guys may remember the Industrial Lexmark I have. Well, I've updated it a bit and gotten some US-International keycaps, since I type on US-International. I don't know why I never thought ot buy keycaps with this legend on them before! Crazy!

Got an Ambra Model M!

Unfortunately, it's not an AMB100x with the blue-grey case and bottom-left aligned italic keycaps, but I can't find any information about the AMB2001 so I'll be taking lots of better photos once it's cleaned up. It came with single-piece standard ISO UK keycaps that are not pictured since I'm in the process of cleaning them (the keycaps attached are just there to allow me to test the keyboard in the meantime).

Neat. I've never seen that particular Ambra logo.

My second Wheelwriter keyboard!

About a month ago, I managed to snag an entire Wheelwriter 3500 for just £1, however, the rest of the typewriter is not in working order despite all looking as immaculate as this keyboard assembly. Unusually, this assembly is dated 2001, so I've asked Unicomp if they could enlighten me (ie, is it something they've made/repaired).

What so you think the odds of being able to turn that thing into your own custom SSK are?
