That's it, with an all white panel in one case, and all black in the 
version I am using on the cnc lathe control box. Also the only keyboard 
I could find with non-tapered sides to the keys, it stops 95% of the 
jammed keys when flying swarf (cuttings, may be red hot) from the lathe 
operation behind it will get jammed in the taper, holding the key down 
after its been released.

The only real fix would be a silicon rubber keyboard skin, but those are 
only available for an apple keyboard on this side of the pond.  Why?  
DamnifIknow.  If someone knows where I can buy a skin for a 
more "normal" us keyboard, they will have an order for 5 of them by the 
time they open up Monday morning.

The other 5%? where the machine has gone wild thinking your finger is 
still on the key? Mad, frantic scramble to hit the e-stop screen button 
with a mouse, and that part under constuction is wrecked, AND a 20 to 50 
dollar cutting tool is shattered.

Change the "left" above to "right", then you are correct, Lisi.  I don't 
think I am looking at it in a mirror. ;-)
