For Sale:
FREEBIE: Console 122-key IBM Model M

Will Ship To: Global

Up for sale are some keyboards that have been laying around for a while. I hoarded them because I could, now that I no long have space, they have to go!

First up is a Compaq G81 with Cherry Brown switches. Good condition overall, but very dirty: I've used it for the last year and haven't cleaned it. You'll have to scrub it yourself, I just want this thing to go. PS/2 connection, great first mechanical. SOLD

Next is a Lexmark-made IBM model M, PS/2 connection. I'm not a model M expert, but I've included a picture of the tag so you can look some stuff up on Geekhack. Tested and working, IIRC this thing was cleaned before it was put in storage. Not totally sure though, so sold as-is. SOLD

Lastly, 122-key terminal model M, the early builds from what I have looked up, getting quite rare. RJ45 connector for terminals, apparently a PS/2 controller can be swapped in. French keys, a couple of keycaps are missing. Pretty clean, I have not used it, hence it is untested. Cool project board, ways a friggin ton, even compared to other Ms.

Price is 15$ for each unit. Buy all 3 for 40$ and a discount on shipping. Nobody wants this, so I'm giving it away! You pay shipping, which is probably going to run over 20$ to anywhere considering the weight.

Taking trades for watches or rackmount networking stuff only. Unless you happen to have ARP rod bolts for a 12v VR6. rolleyes.gif

Will ship anywhere, PM for a quote.

Buckling springs. I have two IBM Model M2 that have the same switches (all IBM keyboards are buckling springs). These are by FAR the best switches in the world in terms of feedback and sound (the feedback is exactly at the same time as the activation) and IBM keyboards, especially Model M's are built like tanks. My two keyboards have been used for 20 years and they're still fine except for a capacitor replacement on the controller board.
