>I'm impressed with your dedication to this project!
Thank you, I enjoy Commodore computers as you know. And I really like seeing
*fully working* machines to show while giving tours at MARCH. Plus this is a
problem that doesn't require a high degree of expertise to repair. It takes
patience, time and researching. For me this is a good task as I'm still
learning about repairing.
Once I fix this keyboard. I will bravely try to fix (or replace) the
cassette tape drive.
>Make sure that store is open Sunday before your schlep there.
Yes, I will definitely make sure that they are open before I go there.
>If the effort vs. results becomes too much, you could consider swapping a
>keyboard from one of our other PETs.
Yes, I have considered swapping out another keyboard as a last resort. But I
believe that the keyboard is fixable in it's current state. I just have to
understand what is going on, what materials can fix it safely and long time
and how to use said materials.
