Apple-1 to Apple II Keyboard Adapter.
Hey guys! Does anyone have a gerber file adapter for the Apple II keyboard? I built mine a couple of years ago from what I found in my den, now I want to build a new one. Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: As I want to learn more abount electronics anyway, I made a schematic for the adapter in question. Would you agree that this is correct? If so, I would have a few PCBs produced. Here is what I got:

Hi guys!

I made a gerber file of such an adapter. You will also need a 30-40 cm long ribbon cable and a 6x6 mm button like in the link, there are different ones: red, blue, black, and they are not expensive. I haven't tested this gerber since I don't have an Apple II keyboard right now, but I did everything exactly the same way I did a few years ago on a breadboard when I still had such a keyboard. I hope this will be useful to someone.
