I resurrected an old 128k Mac Keyboard.
The apostrophe key and the key between z and c are not responding, and it needs a good cleaning, but otherwise it is in reasonable shape. These keys feel gummy, and the rubber feet have deteriorated and want to stick to everything.

I also miss arrow keys. I miss the control key a little bit.

I bet that rubber is toast.

I had a 512k Mac, donated it to Goodwill in 1999. Still kicking myself about that.

I've got an LCII, IICX, and beige Power Mac G3, but I don't have a monitor to hook up to them.

I have a monitor from a 9600/300 that would probably work. It would almost certainly cost a thousand dollars to ship it to you, Blaze.

Yeah, I gotta source it locally. No way I'd pay to ship a CRT monitor.

Appreciate the offer though!

It's a 17" monitor, pretty sweet for the day. And it only takes up half your desk!

I can't say that I did anything special. I just purchased a gadget: https://drakware.com/product/Mac2USB
A massage doesn't always have to lead to sex, but if it doesn't then you're doing it wrong.

Well, a simple cleaning did nothing for the two dead keys.
Time to see if my soldering skills are delicate enough for early 80s tech. These traces are HUGE, so I might actually have a chance at not screwing it up.
