Reproduction Datanetics Keyboard PCBs for sale

These are the keyboards that were most often found with original Apple 1's, if the original still has the original keyboard. Datanetics also made the first Apple II keyboards, a modified version of this keyboard.

$69 for PCB plus brackets - no other parts - I have three that are unclaimed - If not sold by the end of the month, I will sell on ebay after raising price a bit to account for the added cost of selling on ebay. Unless something unexpected happens, this will be a one time build. See my blog for more info. http://www.willegal.net/blog/?cat=13

Thanks,
Mike Willegal

Impressive project, Mike. What are you doing about keyswitches and caps?

Re: Reproduction Datanetics Keyboard PCBs for sale

Hi Tom,

About the only source of switches is early Apple II plus systems, which used the same Datanetics switches. Caps could be custom made, but for now, I'm using the A2 plus caps, with labels on the Datanetics caps that don't have A2 plus equivalents.

Regards,
Mike Willegal
