FOR SALE STF/E KEYBOARDS (UK)

I have a lot of keyboards, probably around 30.. With various states of yellowing..

Here is a sample...

£10 for the not so yellowed ones, £5 for the more yellowed ones... plus postage...

I am assuming they all work, but they have genuinely not been tested..

I was going to clean a lot of these up and service them, but I just do not have time and they are taking up a lot of space.. Plus all those screws and my fingers..... No thanks...

Overall they do not actually look as bad as they do in the pictures.. They are mostly mucky, and I don't think the electric light helps..

Here's a thought, I know your hands are bad, but maybe selling the keys either separately or as a full set would be more profitable. Even the PCB's sold bare would be good, (because of that stupid holding spur that breaks many traces if pressure has been applied to the board when installed).

You'd have the base plate, the membranes, the board and the keys to sell to individual users.

Yeah it'd take a lot of effort, and yeah there's peeps who just want a full board to swap out, but it's worth considering.

Maybe...I did think about it a few times, but at the end of the day, it is just something else to manage/pack/sort etc... I think there are already a couple of people selling keys on evil bay...

I haven't managed to refurbish a keyboard over the past several years, so it is unlikely I will ever get time to do anything else with them.. It is mostly all the space which this is all taking up which is the main problem..

I'll probably have a faded one or two when I next place an order from the store if that's ok?

Count me in for one or two as well...along with the stuff from the other post.

I'm finally going to sort through & fix some of my broken STF/STFMs...and maybe work out how to have some bits ready for the Mongrel board when that is available ;)
