Model F Technical Reference

This PDF contains a technical reference for the original IBM Model F Keyboards and the new reproduction from Model F Labs at The document was built around the design language of the early Personal Computer manuals from IBM but also several modern additions, like photos instead of drawings, where appropriate.

This is still work in progress and many changes are required. There are checks of accuracy done, but a final read through has not happened. During this phase, there can be errors in the guides that can and will have destructive effects when followed. This is just a preview at this stage for people to contribute and give feedback.

Version 0.6.0 has been updated substantially

This is the full size PDF used for printing. It is also called print version, as some tables and drawings are rotated by 90 degrees. The size of the pictures is optimized for printing. Drawings are vector based for optimal scaling.
