Do you enjoy your Amiga A600? Do you think the keyboard feel is lousy? Do you want a better keyboard without having to make it yourself? If you answered, “yes,” to these questions, then today is your lucky day. Your buddy davidbinmichael has built some mechanical keyboards for the A600, and you can buy one right now.Salesman talk aside, I have been a fan of the Amiga for a little while now. It’s fantastic that so many people are making new things for them. I was especially pleased to see a PCB design for a mechanical keyboard for my A600. (Link here, if you’re interested: https://github.com/aeberbach/A600KB) So I decided to make one. But since I had to order at least five PCBs, I decided to make five and sell four of them. I had the PCBs made by JCL PCB. I had them made before he updated the design, so I had to fix the swapped keys in the original board. I used Cherry MX Red switches. Figuring out the keycaps was the most problematic part, as the A600 uses a bunch of now-not-standard sizes for the non-alphanumeric keys. I considered selling the boards without keycaps. With much frustration and trial and error and orders from four or five different vendors, I managed to put together keys that mostly match the color of the original for a reasonable price. The keycap style is DSA, which is not really authentic to the machine but made buying the caps easier. Finally, I glued some polycarbonate pieces to the top of the PCB so that it would snap into place in the A600 case properly.I took my time building these and tested each one thoroughly. They all work, including the keys I had to swap. They fit reasonably well in my A600, but a bit of adjusting may be needed in yours. I’ve included a picture of a keyboard in my A600 (the A600 is not included). The ribbon cable had to be trimmed because Mouser doesn’t sell a 30-pin one. Push it to the left side of the connector when connecting it to the motherboard. You can, of course, switch out these keycaps for others. They are MX switches, so you just need caps of that style.Shipping is included in the purchase price for buyers in the US, and I usually use FedEx. For you European Amigans, I am happy to send a keyboard across the pond to you, but my experience with shipping stuff back and forth this year is that it takes three or more weeks. I normally don’t accept returns, but if you have an issue, we can work something out.
