>Dear Museum founder: Have a Tandy 6000 HD system operating in Xenix.

>and even the Technical Service Manual. However, I really need to keep

>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 ?
