    New Model M


    PRODUCT UPDATE – If you have visited this site and page, in the last month or so, you would have seen a message stating “… new orders in March will not be able to be fulfilled until May. We are certainly working diligently to improve that date.”  Well, we have been working diligently and it’s paying off.  In the last five weeks, we have reduced the backlog of orders to be less than a 1/3 of its peak in that period.  It would appear we will be back to nominal lead times in early May.  Supply of the New Model M components appears to be stable for the foreseeable future.  However, things have been changing quickly in the supply chain.  If you are thinking of purchasing a New Model M, now would be a good time.



    The New Model M buckling spring keyboard has the same mechanism, feel and layout as the original IBM Model M keyboard, but with a slightly smaller footprint. With the much-loved buckling spring key design these keyboards have been prized by computer enthusiasts and robust typists because of the tactile and auditory feedback of each keystroke.

    Manufactured in Lexington, Kentucky, our buckling spring keyboard is a heavy, audible keyboard with a gorgeous finish and solid feel reminiscent of the classic IBM Model M keyboard.


    Buckling Springs

    Buckling springs originated in IBM’s mechanical keyboard as a fundamentally different kind of switch mechanism. Featuring a coil spring that sits between the keycap and a pivoting hammer that collapses when clicked, the spring provides a loud, tactile feedback.


    Model M-Inspired Keycaps

    The two-tone white and gray buckling spring keys are made of PBT polymer. The dye-sublimated legends compliment the authentic feel and classic design. The keys are also available in all gray or all white.
