Damaged – Original IBM Industrial Space Saving Keyboard (SSK), part 1395682
Out of stock
I have one damaged Industrial SSK available at a significant discount. SDL cable is not included. Please message me for more information if you are interested. It’s working, but the top cover is discolored (turned from the original brownish/greenish gray to a more neutral gray) and warped/shrunk with scuffs and scratches, so you’d need to stretch the case somehow with heat and/or consider trimming part of the case so some of the edge column keys work. Or use another SSK case top/dye the case. I also have a NOS full size Industrial case available that could probably be cut down to size. Sold as is due to age and condition.
Brand New Model F Kishsaver F62 and Industrial F77 Keyboards are now available to customize and order – check out the home page for more information!
If you like the Industrial SSK Model M you will love the Model M’s predecessor, the Model F – built to a much higher standard with much more metal on the inside and a metal case!
The pictured item is the one that sold to an international collector in mid-2015. I can send high-res photos of the actual item for sale upon request.
A great option for collectors – buy both a new F77/F62 keyboard and Industrial SSK and use some of the rarest and most in demand keycaps that IBM has made on your new buckling spring keyboard – those of the factory customized with blue keys Industrial Space Saving Keyboard.
Keyboard is used with the typical signs of usage in an industrial environment (scuffs, scratches, etc.), but thoroughly cleaned and restored. First to buy this listing will own it – it goes away once the item has sold.
Note: Bolt Modding may be an extra available service. The keyboard does not come bolt modded. If you are interested in bolt modded please contact me before purchasing; otherwise I will send you a non-bolt modded keyboard.
