Thanks, both are Qwerty.
I did see a Euro Map of where different keyboard are used.

The Spanish keyboard is a Qwerty too.

I heard a rumor that the key from other keyboards are compatible with the A600.
Is this true? The A500, A1200 and PC where mentioned.

Only some. And only from the newer sets, e.g. from the A1200.
You can not swap the keys that are smaller or bigger, obviously, like Help, Space, Shift ...

Please look here:

a1200.net is a page I have seen before.
I would love to buy a brand new set.

I appreciate the link.

I've got a few sets myself, they are mostly good quality.

How is the cost?
Is it reasonable?

It wasn't that expensive IIRC as it was part of some bulk order those days. Of course you still need the keyboard(s) which can be expensive if you donot have a stack of those as well. :o

It is a repair job for one of my a600s. One has a UK keyboard that needs two key caps and the other has a Spanish keyboard that is fine.

I got the keyboard back together.
It still has some issues, like the period is not working and I am not for sure about the cursor keys.
I think it is the keyboard connector on the mother board.

The Amiga Pi Drive is coming in handy. The floppy drive is not working for some reason.
The other A600 is fine.
I am waiting on some CF and SD card drives.

edit:
I would like to thank jaysretrocomputers on ebay for the help.

Once my CF-IDE drive comes in the mail box and I get it installed, I will be putting a full working machine up for sale.
I may be very picky as to whom I sell it.

1. Main Unit.
2. Tank Mouse
3. New Power Supply
4. 2.1 Floppy disks.
5. CF-IDE drive

Thanks.

I would like to sell both of my machines.
I have upgraded both with Solid State Drives from Amigakit.
Testing all of the ports would be great.
One has a new power supply and a used tank mouse that works, but the left button is quirky.
The UK keyboard on the other machine needs to be tested further.
