Workshop – Replace those broken keys

Jul 17, 2015 @ 12:45 am - 2:45 am

Presented by Charles Mangin.

“Does your otherwise perfect realization of Woznian Perfection have +gasp!+ missing keys? Broken or missing keycaps? Switches that have clicked their last? Suffer no more! Even you, yes YOU, can replace those unsightly blemishes, and bring the gap-toothed smile of your your Apple II back from the brink.

Bring along your Apple II, II+, IIe or IIc with its broken embarrassment of a keyboard and a soldering iron (or borrow one). Some* replacement key switches and posts will be available for the real goners; the rest I hope to be able to help you repair. Through a combination of elbow grease, contact cleaner, and dumb luck, I guarantee nobody leaves without a working keyboard**.

* depending on availability. Nominal fee may apply. Void where prohibited.

** not a guarantee.

This will be a hands-on session, so please bring a soldering iron.
