Re: [cosmacelf] Elf II PCB
- Mark, I'd appreciate if you could share the vendor and part number of these switches if you've found a good replacement. I'd love to fix up my old ELF II with some working keys.Thanks,Dave

Actually, the original ELF-II (I had one, back in college) used individual Cherry key-switch buttons, each mounted separately on the board. I was just looking for similar buttons for another project a couple of months ago, and they are a bit difficult to source at a reasonable price, but not impossible. I'll probably adjust the layout of the board a bit to accommodate currently available parts (the edge connectors may be another issue...)
- Mark,I have an old ELF II with shot buttons - not from age but honestly from overuse - my father and I used that computer for years. I have not been able to track down a source for replacement buttons but you mention that you found some. Could you point me in the right direction to get a handful of replacements?Thanks,Stephan
