Very new to all this so here goes. I have a damaged 159 key and need to find a replacement case. I searched this site and found an existing, similar question. I have tried to contact the guy that fixes keys and the Italian eBay seller with no luck. Any ideas or links would be gratefully received.

Hi Eddthered.

What exactly is the damage to the key, does it stop the key from operatning, or is it just cosmetic damage to the case?

If it's the latter, you can purchase a 'spare case' and transfer over the innards, it's also possible to swap out the the actual key section (there's posts on here about that and it's relatively simple once you've seen the description)

If you just need a case...

Hi Edd(?)

I had my 156's keys fixed in Nov '14 by a chap recommended on here and by Veloces. He does his business thru ebay, tho I dealt with him by email.

Here's the original ad - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/-/221581486759?

His name is Chris Curtis and goes by the name of Zaksysems on ebay

I think he keeps/kept a stock of spare cases s might be able to help.
Hi. This is great I'll get on to him. Many thanks
