The left-hand Shift key on my Apple aluminum keyboard suffered a problem when it was molded. It came with an irregular "rut" in the top surface. Similarly, the right-hand Command key also is weird that way, but to a lesser degree.

It's not critical, of course; it's just that I'm reminded of it every time my finger hits the keys. So I thought I'd ask if anyone has spare parts laying around, or for suggestions where I might find replacements. I realize, if new replacement keys are available, that I'd probably have to buy the entire set. But I figured I'd ask here first.

Thanks.

I have a non-working Apple USB Aluminum KB with numpad, rain killed it.

I've also got a couple in various degree of dysfunctionality with perfectly pristine key caps.

Hmmm... this is odd. I actually don't know how to respond. I don't want to inconvenience either of you, yet I don't know whose offer to choose. And would you (whomever) prefer to send the entire keyboard? And how would we move forward?

Wow. This was hard for me.

Wow… what is so hard???

I'd be happy to send the whole KB, no idea how long it'd take me, but it's of no use to me. :)

PM or eMail either or both of us here on the site.

We also have a top dedicated to For Sale/Trade/Wanted to Buy in the private topics section. I'll probably move this topic down there.
