I purchased a French Amiga 600 a while back off here. Of course I didn't consider the keyboard would be so different. (Silly me, I knew it would be.) I've moved some keys around and it mostly works, but they are different heights and it's driving me nuts.

So, I'm looking for the end goal of a working Amiga 600 US Keyboard. The route I get there isn't a concern to me, I'm open to buying a Amiga 600 US Keyboard (working or not, providing the key caps are interchangeable) or a complete set of key caps. I'm also open to suggestions of where I can get keycaps (links) if, and only if, that doesn't break any rules. Or other suggestions that can keep the case in it's original condition and do not require plugging in on top of the 68000.

Thanks! I saw this as well, but I was hoping for a solution before (maybe) September. Also, figuring out if I had a Mitsumi switch seemed hard to tell with out opening it up special. (I have rectangular plastic switches under the key caps, but no idea if they all do or not.
