Re: Repair of MARCH Commodore PET 2001 chiclet keyboard
- If you go to an auto parts store you can buy aluminum tape pretty cheap. Also Home depot will have for duct work (I can check later if I still have some left). You can then use a hole punch to make a small circle and a small thin razor blade and a tweezer to remove the backing and place on the rubber. That should work.
Another idea is maybe those radioshack silvering pens. They are about $20 bucks though and I'm not 100% sure it won't crack and flake off when dry.
