I did a few keyboard teardowns at the weekend, and found out the hard way that treating rust on the keyboard springs with 25% acid vinegar is maybe not the best way to restore.
I am currently speaking to a 'spring manufacturer' in the far east, and hope that they now understand what I want. The order is submitted, and I am awaiting delivery.
Assuming the order gets executed correctly, I hope to be able to offer a full set of 'breadbin key springs' here on the forum. Is anyone interested? I don't plan to make a profit on this, just share the costs.
