Thread: Apple keyboard part needed

  1. #1

    Default Apple keyboard part needed

    I've been trying to finish the restoration of a B&H Apple ][+ for some time.

    It came in without a key and I've since replaced the key switch and found the replacement key cap but don't have, and can't find, the little plastic spacer that goes between the switch and the key.

    Does anyone have any of these available?Apple Spacer.jpg

    Thanks!

    Not quite the part I need. Those are straight, the ones on my keyboard are angled...

    But thanks for the link. I didn't know that site even existed.

    Those are common with Apple III key standoffs. They are used to bridge height between short stem key switch and keycap.

    You could always bend one. For that price, barring an alternative, it might be worth trying.

    Erik, next time the correct question is "how do I google answers to my own questions?"

    How about a new, 3-printed part? http://retroconnector.com/products/a...em-12-adapter/

    I looked on eBay and didn't find anything.

    Not sure how I missed that auction... very expensive, though.

    The 3D printed part is a good idea - I need to do some troubleshooting on my printer first.

    I did manage to find someone willing to sell the parts for $.50 each. So I bought the one I needed and some spares.

    Thanks!
