Does anyone know with certainty what I need to release the screws holding this keyboard together? I've tried my usual selection of Torx and hexagonal drives (metric and inch) but none seem to work.

I've taken them apart before. I know that it's a mix of small hex and phillips head. You'll also have to poke through the label on the bottom to get at a good number of the screws. It's been a good seven months since I've done this, but that's as good as I recall.

Those wee hex guys must be removed.

Once those are off, as mentioned above the inner screws are phillips. IIRC there are two 'hidden' screws under the caps lock and numeric keypad that must be removed to pull the keyboard off the backing plastic.
