I do not know this company but it looks like it could interest those wanting a retro keyboard.

Interesting, looks good, but there is also a guy who made converterplates for real, old typewriters, unfortunatly i did not remeber the name of that project, but as i red, it has allredy became real.

Only thing is that it´s much harder to push down tha bottons on a real typewriter, but i will personally possibly take a closer look at that project too, anyway, since i allredy got an old typewriter that i want to keep as it is since i think (just cleaning it up and some minor repair on it...) , because it fit my grandfathers old workingdesk wery well i think.

Had been cool if it was possible in reality to make some sort of keyboard interface to a mecanical, non electrical old typewriter...
(The teleline-typer are possible to interface as they are with building some electronic boards and a main line feeder (would probably not be too hard to make) i think, unfortunatly i hawe not seen any around here that i could pick up.).

How about this keyboard?

Or just the key caps?

Has anyone seen a UK version of these keyboards anywhere ?  Sadly they all seem to be USA layout...  Undecided

Or anything close will do - if it's a reasonable price.
