WTB: Replacement Alps "SKCC" Caps Lock + normal key switches for an Apple IIe

As noted in the title, I'm on the hunt for some Alps "SKCC" type key switches for an Apple IIe I'm restoring. Most urgently, I need a compatible replacement Caps Lock switch, but I could also really use a few of the 'normal' switches for some of the alpha-numeric keys too.

If anyone happens to have a 'parts machine' with this style of keyboard, I'll happily work out a deal for just the switches I need, or even the whole board - just let me know!

Pics show the specific types of switches I'm hunting for.

Thanks!

Update: I've just learned

Update: I've just learned that the original Macintosh keyboard (model M0110) for the Mac 128k / 512k used the same switches I'm searching for! If anyone out there has a "parts board" and would be willing to sell me a Caps Lock + a few normal switches, I'd be super grateful. Thanks in advance!

Dr. Stephen Buggie of New

Dr. Stephen Buggie of New Mexico who sells on eBay almost always has key switches for most //e keyoards available at a fairly reasonable price.  I've bought from him a few times.

Thanks for the tip! I saw his listing a few days ago (when my hunt first started) and reached out. I just got a response but I'm not clear from his reply if he has the Caps Lock switch I need or not. I'll keep going back and forth, but I'll also keep looking around for alternate options. 

 

Thanks for the suggestion!
