    I have one last A600 keyboard to sell - this is my last PCB, and also my last set of Gateron Brown key switches.

    Finally I was able to assemble the keyboard and I have no words to say how much IT ROCKS! The torture days of A600 keyboard failure and new membranes are now gone. I couldn't be happier.

    I would like to take the chance of this thread to take recommendations of fitting keycaps for it.

    I’m talking to a few manufacturers about keycaps. I would like to get someone to produce a kit that fits any Amiga, so for example would include both 1.25U (A600) and 1U (others) Esc keys, as well as accents etc. for non-US keycaps. It is early days yet but if it’s going to happen would probably be a crowdfunding campaign.

    Awesome keyboard arrived!

    It is very difficult to find suitable keycaps for it. Has anyone already equipped the keyboard and can post links to matching keys?

    Interested next in line, pending some questions:
    - would i get a keyboard that is a direct replacement of my failing A600 keyboard (green membrane), with all keys ready?
    - can it be set up as french AZERTY keyboard?
    - if there is no key, can i just plug the keys from my amiga A600 keyboard?
    - do i need to build or solder anything?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    In order to save some time for Adam I will answer some of your questions based on my experience.

    - the membrane is included you just plug in the flex connector to your mobo and are good to go
    - sorry, no idea about AZERTY, but I would guess this is a matter of software and keycaps so I cannot see why it shouldn't be possible
    - no, the original A600 keyboard has different construction (no mechanical switches AFAIK), so you will have to source keycaps that are compatible with Cherry MX switches
    - no soldering required, fully plug n play solution (minus the keycaps)

    I hope this helps.

    Sorry to say I have no more PCBs or keyboards to sell Xanxi - but you can get all you need to have them made from my GitHub page: https://github.com/aeberbach/A600KB

    However it is not economical to have just one made. I would get together another order if three people prepaid and I would handle buying keyswitches, 3D printing, assembly etc.

    Keyboard is a direct replacement. If you can open the case and unplug the membrane you can install this keyboard.

    AZERTY would be no problem since it is all just different key labels and software, the keyboard circuit is the same.

    Original Amiga keys will not fit. I'm still planning on getting a keycap set together. If I do it will have enough keys for _any_ Amiga variant in any language.
