IBM Model M SSK Space Saving Mechanical Keyboard

Description

Type with the power of buckling springs.
The most desirable of the famous IBM Model M keyboards.
Born in 1991.

This thing is a tank. 27 years old and still going strong.

It unfortunately has an extra "Page Up" keycap and is missing an "End" keycap :(

Comes with a PS2->USB adapter that can draw enough power for it (the passive adapters don't).

Are you ever down near cork ?

Hello 'iain124',

I just spotted your latest message, so I reckon I might just as well asnwer it, regardless that I haven't changed my mind about the purchase;

Given that I'm a resident of Slovenia, the chances of finding myself anywhere near the Cork are rather slim. Other than that – last year I decided to preorder a newly manufactured Model F keyboard (https://www.modelfkeyboards.com/); quite an expensive treat, an investment that I seldom decide upon.

Might be worth to try an eBay or Gumtree sale, even if it's limited to Ireland and UK (to save yourself the hassle of calculating the international shipping rates). It's just a thought …

Kind regards,

Bostjan

I was asking the naraic if he would be near cork as I am interested in the keyboard I’m not sure what you’re on about.

This is embarrassing ... I completely overlooked it's not for me. I should have signed off from receiving automatic notifications, but obviously I forgot to do so. My apologies ...

Kind regards,
Bostjan

@iain124: nope. never in cork. signed postage would probably be 15euro or so because it’s fairly heavy - if you want to pay via paypal or something?

Thanks I’ve seen your comments on ads before like the model f I was thinking of buying it but decided on a model m instead
Renaldas.S 1 month ago
I really regret not buying that model f, I think I'd prefer it to a model m but sure look
iain124 1 month ago
Yeah I just couldn’t of been bothered converting it just got a fairly clean model m instead currently have a alps made at102 very nice if you can get your hand on one
Renaldas.S 1 month ago
I had an at102w it was the worst haha, I wouldn't mind converting it but a soarers is 40usd or so. The model m doesn't need active converter does it?
iain124 1 month ago
It depends on the model m some are terminal and you need a soarers others can just need a ps2 converter. Normally if an alps board feels bad the switches need to be cleaned
Renaldas.S 1 month ago
I cleaned the switches as much as I could but they were still scratchy, got rid of it soon after.
iain124 1 month ago
Probably needed a full restore but not worth considering how cheap you can get them. Surprised to find some one else as interested in keyboards
