Description

Please email me for details on remaining inventory of IBM F107 Model F keyboards.

However if you are considering this IBM F107 keyboard, I recommend you consider the Brand New Model F Keyboards (click the home page for more information!) which all feature a built-in USB controller with NKRO, fully customizable with function layers, macros, and the option to customize each key and layout.  You can’t do any of that on an original Model F keyboard without soldering several dozen wires to the currently available xwhatsit controller (check out the store for this item) or using an older xwhatsit controller design that is no longer available for sale anywhere.  Any questions feel free to check out the home page and email me.

There were one or two big finds of these keyboards a few years ago and now supply has just about dried up.  I will not be producing this design.  This is one of the largest metal case buckling spring keyboards IBM offered.

ANSI-style layout modification and USB conversion with the xwhatsit controller services are available (extra cost).  Feel free to message me if you are interested (click the mail/message button on the lower right part of the screen).

You can adjust it to better match ANSI or the standard Model M layout – not a perfect match but close. This is a fully reversible process that involves opening up the inner frame assembly, moving one spring and pivot plate to another barrel, and replacing the Enter, Backspace, | \, F, J, and left shift keys with those from a standard-style IBM Model M keyboard, while also including the three needed stabilizers. The F and J Model M keys were added because the original F and J keys do not have the “nubs.”

Shows signs of usage and wear including scuffs and some small areas of missing paint, and has some rust on the metal plates which is characteristic of virtually every Model F I own. As this computer component is around 30 years old, no warranty is offered.  Sold as is.

You will get the a similar condition unit to the pictured one – not the exact pictured unit.
