    Taking apart Apple keyboard
    i am on a mission to take apart my Apple keyboard so that i can fully clean it and see if there is anything fun that can be done with it.

    My main issue is removing the three small hex screws from the bottom of the keyboard. Does anybody know what size the screws are and where i can find the bit to take it apart?

    help will be greatly appreciated and awarded

    i know how to take all the keys off of the keyboard.

    A hardway store should have them small enough, not sure what size they are, but if you bring it with you, they should be able to help.

    Any shop selling tools should carry an allen key that small .You could even buy a little screwdriver set with the right size. The smallest I have in the house is 2mm You'll need one around 1 mm
