Full Key Set, Brand New Production XT-quality, for Model F and Model M keyboards
Starting at $35
Available colors: standard pearl/pebble, black (unprinted only), Industrial SSK Blue, and Dark Gray. The text is black on all the keys. International sets come in standard pearl/pebble, but you can special order other colors at a slight additional cost – please email me for details.
Note: these key sets do not include HHKB keys (split right shift, etc.)! If you order these keys you will not receive the short shift and other keys, which are only available separately. Please check the store for the HHKB 6 key set (if you have the HHKB type layout, you should order an extra HHKB set for each full key set that you order). Included in the HHKB 6 key set: 1.75U right shift, 1.5U size Delete key, 1U | key, 1.5U Caps Lock, 1.75U Left Ctrl, and 1U Fn. To reduce cost (or if you only ordered unprinted keys) you’d just need an extra 1.75U key for HHKB type layouts; you can order just the 1.75U Split Right Shift key for 10 units of the store item $1 increments (this key costs more; all other keys are $4 and can be ordered on the “extra keys” product page.
A set XT-quality one-piece keys from the new molds, like the ones that will be installed on your keyboard orders. The goal is to make them of similar quality as the one-piece IBM XT keyboard key caps.
If you order the “full base key set” you get 103 keys so you can use the set on your other Model M or Model F keyboard as well as the new production ones, though the space bar is the Model M style so it will not work with XT/AT style space bars or Model F style space bars unless you make a custom wire or remove the plastic clips (not recommended) as shown here.
This option is only for those who want an extra set. For the set you want installed on your keyboard order, please go to the F62/F77 product itself and configure which key set you want installed using the drop down menus there.
Please pick the option you want. All 103 key sets include the space bar, space bar stabilizer wire and required 6 stabilizer inserts for the set, both horizontal and vertical inserts. The 1U 0/Ins key is just included in sets installed on F77 keyboards, not on extra sets.
Currently APL and JIS sets are sourced from Unicomp but this may change in the future.
Additional note: legal, safety, and limited warranty information for this MODEL F LABS LLC product is available to consumers pre-sale and will be furnished upon request, by writing to the email or mailing address at the bottom of this web page. Of course you’ll get a printed booklet with your order shipment!
If you order front printed keys, HHKB style extra keys, or Industrial SSK keys with your set, they will not replace any other keys you’re getting – you still get the full set, plus the extra keys you order.
