    Looks like you're pretty well set! Nothing like a building with a dock! I can sure understand what you're dealing with gutting it though. But I've never (and don't imagine I will!) had to do this...

    I always wondered, what did the manufacturer soak the ribbon in? Why can't we get/make that? Maybe even WD-40 (or heck Zippo fluid?) plus carbon black (toner)?

    The place has changed quite a bit since many years ago. But alas, yes most of it is an illusion. You can usually tell which instruments are really playing because they're the ones that are severely...

    Found it; it appears to be a one-off, and I mustn't have had a good look at it before: what a goofball compass.

    Someone made a circular (torus) keyboard a few years ago. Not sure if it was a one-off or a production model.

    I received what was before shipping, a pristine Gonset Communicator IV. It arrived in a thin cardboard box exactly the size of the radio, no packing material at all. This is a very heavy piece of...

    My PET 2001-N came in a giant cardboard bag (big enough to put 4 PETs in) full of packing peanuts and a pile of dead C64s. When I came home and saw it on the porch I thought for sure it would be...

    Have you used a chorded keyboard? I did. Once you get used to it, it makes you really appreciate being able to type and use a mouse without effort. But I had two complaints. First, like the...

    I disagree.. it's not that much different. At least for me. I cross over a lot typing. It's a bad old habit but it works and I type faster because of it. I press G with the right index finger a...

    Accordions technically do have a row of function keys: registers. Also there are at least two rows of keys and as many as seven!
