Folks - I have just acquired this superbrain and am looking for replacement keys - in this case 2 & 3 from the top row.

Does anyone know where I can get some or at least point me in the direction of an equivalent please ?

You got a bit of a bargain... well done!

The keys have the same stems as the BBC Master, so you could use a pair of those to get you going. Key switches are SMT type 4. Ask for spares on the Stardot forum.

Thanks for the tip. Looks like you have been busy with Superbrains recently.

I guess mine will only turn out to be a bargain when I have managed to test it beyond power on. I have some boot disks arriving from Retro System Rescue in the US.
I hope the Northstar I bought from the same chap turns out to be a bargain - thats what I was really after. Not managed to boot that yet as waiting for some serial console cables to arrive.

Bump - still looking for these keycaps if anyone can help.
Superbrain is working now with some help from Jonb along the way.
The key stems have been replaced and are waiting for replacement keycaps.

Thanks
