I can’t take the fumes that method puts off, plus it is really easy for keys on the bottom to burn, and it is easy to over heat the pot and warp the keys.intric8 wrote:That boiling tea kettle water idea is interesting.
Have you ever tried just putting the keys in a sauce pan and getting the temp to about 150F? There is a point where you can melt them, of course, so a temperature gauge is what I've seen some folks do.
Great tip and you are right the mechanism is identical on the C128 and it can be upgraded with the rubber sleeves. You know you can actually plunder any Mitsumi keyboard with the buckling rubber sleeves, even cheap PC clone keyboards of that era (Mitsumi KPQ-99 boards to be exact).bwldrbst wrote:I've been lurking on this forum for a while but I thought I should sign up to point out that the switches on the C128 keyboard look a lot like these or these found in Amiga and quite a few other keyboards.
I recently got my hands on a pretty common Apple M0482 keyboard and was able to replace a broken switch in my A1200. I also swapped the mushy metal springs on the A1200 for the much nicer feeling rubber ones in the Apple keyboard making it far more pleasant to type on.
