I wouldn't suggest scrapping an entire machine just because Dave and I need a few keytops. The Apple /// is well known for it's ability to lose it's magic smoke. It's a fault of the power supply and is easily repaired. Mine had the same problem. I had the power supply working in very little time.
Also, the ///+ uses a different keyboard...
But, if the thing has real bad cosmetic damage, or something else horribly wrong with it, I'd be interested in the disk drive.
