C64C Keyboard

Postby SpidersWeb on Sat May 05, 2012 12:27 am

Mine is broken, missing 3 keys and has one key with no spring.

Really need another :/ can send mine back for spares ("core part" as they say) if wanted.

Unfortunately I only have two 64C keyboards - and two 64Cs. I have a bunch of the old brown breadbin keyboards though?

If they're complete, cheap and working I'd gladly take a breadbin (and a disk drive cable if you have one spare). Otherwise I'll keep hunting for a dead C64C or grab one of the ten from the 'huge collection' that's being listed up individually. Only reason I wasn't asking for a breadbin is I've seen what they go for on trademe, quite a few these days.

Made a commitment to not spend big money on non-IBM ehehe trying to stick to it and not let my obsession get to me too much :P

Just browsing through the forum today and also saw your note on the Commodre PC keyboards. It would be great to look at those if they are spare for you. I've got a running C64C (kind of yellow but nothing a bit of retrobrite won't fix).

I am in the same boat with one of my C64c's and I even looked at overseas but it cheaper to buy a extra C64 on Trade me than bring in a s spare Keyboard. :cry:

Yeah I have 3 and am not using any of them. I'll test and put a photo up.

You want a WHOLE C64?! :)

I was offering just the actual keyboard, not the whole computer! :)

Make a fair offer and we can talk if you really want a second 64.

Crikey, uhm alright... let me collate what I actually have. I think at last count I now have three operational breadbins, one I'm keeping as a test rig since it's factory fully socketed. There's a few non-working boards that have been partially stripped for spares too, and a few cases... anything specific you guys want?

Shouldn't be a problem. I'll have a rustle around.

I'm good for the moment, I need to buy a very dead C64C to finish the project or the keyboard from one.

If I buy something fixable or complete, I'll just use/fix, and end up making another thread asking for another C64 keyboard :S
Also need a disk drive cable.

Stuff I have to swap in case people don't want cold hard cash:
- Commodore PC (XT gen 101 key) keyboards
- Commodore 64 power supplies
- Amiga power supplies
- Laser Compumate 2 in mint condition, epic for crossowrds and has 8K RAM! (pending that trademe auction atm, wondering how much its worth)
- a huge collection of PS2 keyboards :/ one C64C keyboard = box of PS2 keyboards
- scanners (who doesn't love a good scanner? c'mon!)
- such a large amount of IDE drives arriving soon I have no idea what to do with them
- untested (but the other one it came with works mint) 486 Socket 2 board - 3xVESA
- 386DX-20 CPU (tested)
- Mac Classic motherboard (you never know)
- could also fling down a network card with XTIDE ROM preconfigured for computer madness.

Edit: also could really use a detachable Amiga keyboard for the A2000

Same problem here, 4 C64c's and still have the original thats faulty as I ended up fixing the others, and still have the same one needing a keyboard. and strangely a lead for the disk drive.

CBM Serial cables are easy to make up, not too many wires and standard plugs.

I'm still half minded but if I decide to scrap one of my 64Cs, I'll let you guys know. You can fight to the death for the beige keyboard, or just share it since you each want a few keys and springs etc :lol:
