I've sacrificed a keyboard for benefit of all others.... You are correct in that the glue won't take, so I remove the lower part of the damaged key and replace it from the "sacrified" one. Most CBM keyboard mechanisms (VIC20, C16, C64 for sure) are essentially the same. If you didn't want to do this, the only other method is to heat a sewing pin up until its red hot and drive it through the broken star and lower part in one go. When it cools, snip the protruding part of the pin. If all goes well, both parts should stick to the pin. - Nick PLEASE TAKE NOTE: The contents of this email (including any attachments) may be privileged and confidential.
