Amstrad? & other keyboards...

Now sorting through saved old keyboards...

Apart from the IBM/Lexmark Model M keyboard I have on TradeMe, I've found I also have some other have some XT & AT keyboards, and a couple that are switchable, also mechanical, with quite nice Alps switches.

The latter might go on TradeMe at some point.

But there's also this oddball Amstrad keyboard, which perhaps no-one will want, but before it potentially goes to TradeMe - or landfill?



I think (fairly sure, from memory) it came from one of these:

so likely AT, although it also looks quite like this as well

Any interest?

I'm interested. I have a PC2086 that it could go with.

OK;- (another one that might have gone on TM, but good to have a quick answer!)

I'm pretty certain it'll be working - I remember it was the PC that had died (a colleague's at the time).

Maybe, with their own proprietary keyboard codes, they didn't distinguish between XT & AT PC's?

Good to see it go to a good home (& fellow ham, although I'm not on air!).

A little bit more of a laborious packaging job, but it will easily be under 5kg, so bare postage cost $8.50.

Again, any small donation toward packing & a trip to the PO gratefully accepted! :D

But I'm happy for you to have it! (I wouldn't have put much on it for TM, anyway.)

I will say though that I only gave it a fairly cursory wipe-down for the TM photos, it was mostly just very dusty!
The clips to separate looked a bit hard to get off at once &or without breaking, to give a good clean.
