Anyone have any idea where to get one of these classic mechanical buckling spring type keyboard in nz?

This is what i'm talking about:

Doesn't have to be original IBM model M, not collecting or anything, just really miss the feel of them.

like these will do!

Can't seems to find them in nz...

I have one and it's very precious... I would never give it up (though optimus maximus is very tempting!)

I'm trying to get more (ANZ BANK :-) ) so if i succeed i'll let you know. When yo start using it again, you will be in wonder how few mistakes you make and the relived joy of typing is revisted, yes corny I know getting excited about a keyboard.... plus, You can remap them to Dvorak! just change the little keycaps around.

Some guy WAS selling them on Trademe, but they have since all but gone.
