Guise,

I am looking for a single F3/F4 key. Anyone have a dead machine around that can spare a tooth?

NTSC key in particular. Although a PAL key might work in a pinch. :lol:

I will keep my eye out for one. I see broken C128's show up on eBay now and again for cheap - it may be worth it just so you have other spare parts, too.

I will dig through my key caps tomorrow and see if that is one of my spares.

Thanks guys! Fingers crossed! This 128 of mine will live again if it is the last thing I...wait, let me save that card for something more important. It will be reborn!

Success! There was indeed a spare function key in my grab back of caps.

Awesomeness!!! rpiguy came through to save the day!

I'm taking advantage of a much needed day off to retrobrite the other keys to match his. I'm thrilled that the C128 I picked up will have a new tooth!

Although, she's yet to come alive...we're getting there!

Thanks all! And thanks especially to @rpiguy9907!
