Hi, I have an Apple II+ clone keyboard in need of a new 16 pin connector.

If you have one or can point me where to get one I would appreciate it.

Thank you for your time.

You can get one of those at Digi-Key.

Hope that helps.

I ordered 3 from Digikey on Saturday night, and only then I noticed the back-order.

dorkbert; do you know how long the back order wait is?

I would think digikey is in far better position to answer that.

LOL that's me. and I jacked the price up; I'm trying to make some $ back.

I bought three but unfortunately 1 was damaged beyond repair during shipping.
They used a flimsy box.

mine oh mine, that's some mark up... but yeah, DigiKey rapes people on shipping for small things.
