one day I hope to have a real BS board


Get a Unicomp.

New, warranty, native USB, Windows keys, under $100. Certainly the best value out there.

+1 Fohat! I still have a 103 key UNI0446 PS/2 keyboard! Great Choice!

Do the keys on your Unicomp feel nice and crisp? I put some Unicomp VI keys on my 1986 and sometimes one or more of the keys feel like the spring isn't buckling right.

They feel just fine. I don't have those issues at all. Maybe you need to reseat your keys if you do.

Maybe they are just a bad batch then. I have reseated them multiple times and also switched back to the original keys. The originals work fine. The new ones work most of the time, but every so often, the J just won't buckle for a couple of presses and then is fine again. I think the little nub for the spring might be too short on the Unicomp stems.

I am writing a technical reference for Model F keyboards (actual state of the document can be found here: http://www.linux-tin.org/ModelFManual.pdf.
In this document, I am also showing the different variants of the Model F keyboards (2-21f). I already have 10 in there, but I am still looking for:
  • System/23 Datamaster Monoblock
  • System/23 Datamaster "Bezelmaster"
  • CS/9000 Keyboard
  • Model 200 '4704' - F62 Kishsaver, Original
  • Model F Displaywriter
  • 'Blue Button' Model F variants
  • F127, 4980 for IBM Series/1 minicomputer
The document will be released under a Creative Commons license and in case you are sharing those photos, you need to be ok with me taking those into the document.
Any help would be much appreciated
