Product Description

The legendary core of each model M keyboard is made of more than a pound of steel plate (not rubber, not aluminum, not plastic).

Excellent replacement part for craftsman looking to rebuild an existing 101-key model M keyboard, or looking to cut and experiment with a home-built 75% or 60% model M custom keyboard.

(Each 18.25″ model M steel plate has been removed from surplus (1993 – 1999) model M  keyboards and inspected to be rust-free
….and may or may not be suitable for crafting into a sword or other similar edged-weapon) 😉
