Hi Dave,

Did you try replacing the decayed conductive foamies under the keys?

This was a keytronic design, and I think my search began with that

It worked for me.

Shame on me for not keeping good records to give you the instant source of the material I used, it was 1/8 conductive foam with aluminum on both sides.

Purchase records are here somewhere, I will find them for you...
