Hi Sebastian,

I have an old (and probably filthy) 8256 keyboard gathering dust in a cupboard here. You can have that free - just pay the postage. I also have a keyboard for a PcW16 that may be of better use to you.

Cheers,

Peter

It looks like Habi’s PCW-IO board is just what you need.

Should have reminded about this before.

There is a business in the UK - CJE Micros - selling various PCW items.   Ad on web is still there, so stuff still available.   Just keyboard for PCW (both 8256 and 8512, although I think this is the same product) is listed as £22.00 incl VAT and UK p&p.   Second hand, but they seem to have bought the complete setup from a business that had a significant number of PCWs of all types.   As they are a proper business, the items have a guarantee, and I'd be pretty sure they know how to pack for postage.

Google 'Amstrad PCW 8512 cjemicros' and you should get them.

Hi Sebastian,

I have found the keyboard and will post it to you next week. I just need to find a box to put it in. As expected it needs cleaning.

Cheers,

Peter
