Moving Key Keyboard missing key

Post by Roxbury » Fri Sep 25, 2015 5:16 am

Recently I was fortunate to be given a Dick Smith Wizzard tape deck and a moving key keyboard. Unfortunately the number 8 key has been ripped out at some stage.

I know this is a massive longshot, but is anybody parting out a moving key keyboard where I could get hold of a key/s? Or does anybody have a bright idea for some sort of replacement? I really can't think of an elegant way to fix it without getting hold of an original rubber key.

Maybe you can look for a broken Laser 200/210 or VZ-200/210.

The "8" key looks the same to me

I'll keep a lookout for them, but probably easier to find another keyboard.

It will be easier finding a VZ200 or Laser 200 than a CreatiVision keyboard
