Keyboard parts needed
Had some bad luck with one of the upper row arrow keys on my 128. The plunger decided to explode and the spring is MIA. Wondered if anyone had a spare they would be willing to sell me or had any other ideas of where to source one? Looking on eBay they have a ton for the 64 but nothing for the 128. I'd love to get this keyboard put back together and refuse to rebuild it just to tear it apart again when I find the parts. Probably important to mention that I'm based in the US seeing as paying international shipping for such a small item would break the bank. Thanks!
Keep watching Ebay.
Keep watching Ebay. Sometimes they have Commodore computers listed as for "parts only". They are a lot easier to get when you have an idea they are broken. Our local police department is approved for meeting people on Craigslist because there is 24 hour video monitoring in the parking lot and lobby. The third option is to call E-waste recycling centers.
Keep in mind AMIGA keyboards
Keep in mind AMIGA keyboards used the same peggs and springs, you can often find them for sale on EBAY and don't need to buy an entire "parts" computer.

Hmm, the white pegs on my A1000 keyboard don't seem the same as the black pegs on the C128 keyboard.

Notice how different the A1000 keyboard is from other "big box" Amigas. I believe that poster was referring to the A500 type Amiga. He may still be wrong, but it's worth checking. I just bought two C-128 upper cases just for the keyboard parts. These parts don't usually wear out, but I have a dog that likes to eat keys........

Heh, if you are referring to badco, he/she did not specify which Amiga.

That's true, and I guess we should never assume anything in these threads. The Amiga A1000 is a bit different from all other Amigas though - should have put it that way. To Jeff Stringham, I may be able to help him when I get the tops cases. I'll have to check the condition when they arrive. Keep your finger's crossed. .
