I have just acquired an Osborne Variant 1 but its in locked mode and don't have the key.
So I have several options :

1. Just hotwire it so its always on
2. Find a fitting key
3. Replace the keyswitch with another keyswitch
4. Replace the keyswitch with a normal switch

Now option 1 is just not a very good idea, 2 is probably impossible (anyone?) but 3 and 4 should be doable.

So does anyone know where I can find an almost identical keyswitchlock thing ? (preferably in europe)
And as a second option, a square switch, what would be a good place for that ?
Both would need to be just simply on/off, 4 pins

Tips ?
