I've been looking for an ASCII keyboard for my replica of the Apple 1, the Replica 1, but can't find one. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Re: ASCII keyboard

So here is your problem.

The replica-1 uses an Apple II/II plus keyboard or a ps/2.
The IIe which are cheap and plentyful won't work.

An Apple II is going to cost you easily over 1000 dollars. A II plus if your lucky may cost you 100-400 depending on what you find. Assuming you find a dead one for about $100 if your lucky the keyboard encoder works. Keyboards do come up on eBay from time to time but are usually 100+ with a working encoder. May not be worth it all for a $150 replica-1. My suggestion is to use a ps/2 mini keyboard or a bamboo wood keyboard. That's what I do with my Briel replica-1 and everyone loves the wood keyboard.
