I have reserved and contacted the people who still want keyboards (I might have missed someone out but I don't think so)


The keyboards which are currently left are the ones below...

4 & 5 look like less yellowing than the other 3, but its hard to tell if its just muck or slight yellowing, maybe both. These are £10 each + postage.


The ones below have a key or two missing / broken... £5 each + postage..

I might be able to supply missing keys, but they are not going to be the same colour ..

There's a certain irony to the escape key having escaped. ;)

Just had a thought (best everyone duck to avoid any ensuing explosion... :lol: )...

Is it possible to reuse the key cap from a broken key by just replacing the 'springy bit' underneath?

I've got a couple of keyboards with a single broken key but still have the keys themselves. So, if I can transplant the key cap onto a new base, then I will be able to make one good keyboard and have the other with two broken keys.

I'm sorry if this is as daft as it sounds...but am trying to fix as many of the broken STs as I can for nowt (been living in Yorkshire for too many years obviously :D :shock: )

Then I hope to be ready for the next STF remake... ;)

Yes you can reuse the keys. Take the keyboard apart and replace the broken white bit or springy rubber bit (for want of s better description) and reassemble.

It's easy enough, just a bit if a pain to get it all back together.

You can replace the parts, and fix them, is pretty straightforward really...
