re: [midatlanticretro] repairing the keyboard foams
- The foam brand is Woodland Scenics (they're about the only brand you
see in the hobby shops). It was 5mm foam (3/16"). The space blanket was
from WalMart in the camping section, I think (called an Emergency
Blanket). One side of the mylar is conductive and the other isn't. Check
it with a meter and put the conductive side AWAY from the semi-circular
contacts on the PCB.
