Does any one have an old non working IBM model m keyboard that they
could snag some springs off of? I need 2 but I am thinking maybe 3 just
in case. They are not too hard to get without taking the keyboard
apart. Just pop a key off and you will see the spring sticking up. The
spring it self is seated on a little nipple looking thing on the key
switch down in the hole. It is just held on by friction. Just pull up
on the spring alittle bit with your finger and use a small pick or
something to dig the spring off of the little nipple thing. It is not
that hard to stretch the spring so you do have to be careful.
Oh and these things are awesome to type on. Highly recommended!
