Source for classic dome trackpoint caps?

#1 Post by lparsons » Sun Feb 16, 2020 11:03 am

I'd like to put the original style of trackpoint cap onto my T510 keyboard. I've seen it called "classic dome" or "eraser head" but I can't find a source for it. They seem to have all but vanished, I can't even seem to find them on ebay. I personally like being able to grip the edge of the cap with my finger tip, which doesn't work with the flat top caps (and I never liked the tiny nubs sticking up on them).
Anyone have a reliable source? Searching a little further on google I found a couple companies that I have never heard of before claiming to sell them, though none that list on ebay or amazon.
T510 - 4313-CTO: New from Lenovo January 2011. Core i5, Discrete Graphics, 8GB RAM, 320GB HD, 9 Cell. Win7 when I must, Kubuntu when I can
R32 - 2658-A7U: P4m 1.6Ghz, 2GB/250GB, XPP / FBSD 7.2 - 7+ years old and still ticking
R32 - 2658-BXU: P4m 1.5Ghz, 128MB/80GB, XPP; mostly for parts

Are you referring to the ones that feel like they can rip the skin off your fingers?
