TS 1000 Keyboard Membrane with US Text

Post by DeLorean_4 »

Hi all,

I'm searching for a replacement TS 1000 keyboard membrane with the US Text i.e. "Delete" instead of "Rub-Out" and "Enter" instead of "New Line"
I know some reproductions were made in recent years, but I can't seem to find any anymore.

I'm located in Ontario, Canada.

Rich Mellor trading as RWAP Software has produced these in the past and is the person to ask.
He has a web site here, but sells on his market place Sell My Retro.

He is also on these forums.

I don't see any ZX81 or TS1000 membranes listed from him (there are ZX81 membranes from other sellers), so he may be out of stock. New membranes are produced in large batches, so although it's likely another run of ZX81 membranes will be produced, he will have to assess if there is sufficient demand for the TS1000 type.

But best if you ask him.

Step up to red alert. Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb :!:

Still plenty of ZX81 membranes in stock:

Unfortunately, there is simply not enough call to get TS100 membranes made specifically - in the past we created some thinner blank membranes which could be used with an overlay to replicate different keyboard layouts - but there has not been any call for those in a while.
