Subject: Need Tandy 6000 Keyboard

Dear Museum founder: Have a Tandy 6000 HD system operating in Xenix.
Have all the original 8 1/2" floppies for the OS, and for 'Scripsit' (Word
Processing), and for 'Unify' (a RDMS) -- including all the Owners Manuals,
and even the Technical Service Manual. However, I really need to keep
this old mini-computer working for another 2 years before I pass it along
to some collector or museum.
    I am prepared to make a deal (YOU can set the terms) with the
individual who is directly instrumental in providing the assistance I need
to keep my keyboard operational or who can assist me to acquire one or
preferably two old keyboards for this unit. The problem is that the
individual key contacts are failing, one after another. They are easily
repaired/replaced -- but I have run out of the ability to switch the sound
contact pads from the seldom used redundant keys to those that have
failed. I am unable to find a source for these wee electrical contacts,
and am looking to - beg, borrow or steal, or buy - a whole keyboard or two
from which I can pirate the needed parts.
   Can you help me, and/or redirect me ? What would be your terms ?
Tom - at Club 27
