Thanks to Spidersweb for a couple of broken non-functioning C64's... Although I'm not planning on getting them running (one is completely gutted anyway), I figured I'd at least repair a few broken keys as they're more for asthetic value for me (and they're an iconic design. They look nice on the shelf)
Lucky for me someone on eBay was selling spare keys (though at US$3.99 a key? Someones making a little money there), stems and springs. Have replaced three keys that were completely broken off. A bit of a scrub of the case in the sink to remove grime collected in and around the cases... I also bought a couple of LED's - I'll replace the missing one - even though it doesn't work... Well, its gotta at least look complete! lol!
I'm considering getting a Keyrah and making these into USB keyboards... And possibly thoughts on a Raspberry Pi emulator project. But we'll see...
Just thought I'd post a few piccies. Pre-repair...https://www.dropbox.com/s/mkzcbup956piify/64_KB_prerepaired.jpgSpare parts...https://www.dropbox.com/s/y23c5xfedpmxv5x/64_KB_SpareKeys.jpghttps://www.dropbox.com/s/5krun0gaoa0dmxc/64_KB_Spares.jpgTada!
