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?
Did you look here ???
its alway usefull to view the topiclists and there the topics....
sometimes it helps if you also read the postings....
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.
