    Default keycaps: NOSCROLL and SETUP keys for DEC VT100 style keyboard

    I am missing the NOSCROLL and SETUP keycaps for my DEC GIGI, I believe they are the same as the VT100 or VT278 style keyboards.



    thanks.

    How badly are you looking for these ?
    I have a VT100 clone which I am willing to sell but I want to sell it complete.

    Thanks for replying. I am not in a hurry, I expect my best option is to find a surplus keyboard from a VT100 or similar. Or someone (ex DEC service engineer perhaps?) might have a bag of spare keytops; they are surprisingly easy to lift off so you would expect lots of people had missing keytops in the past.

    Thanks to John Wilson who saved the day and kindly sent me the missing keycaps. As the picture shows my GiGi is now complete.

    Wow, I never even heard about the DEC GiGi before. I'm glad you got the keycaps for it.

    I wonder if John Wilson has any more Setup keytops, because my VT100 keyboard is missing it also. (@;

    Wow - 5 years later and I finally got a DEC GIGI - and it's missing keycaps! What, are people ripping keycaps off to eat them or something?

    Luckily, I have some VT100 keycaps I can use to replace them.
