Some kind of Spanish language number pad attachment (I'm not the seller). Looks interesting, was there also a UK version?

Collector of original and some newer QL related computers, accessories and software even though I don't understand how any of them work.
Original BBQL's: 2x German, 1x UK model (plus quite a bit of other old stuff)
Custom AT cased QL system with Gold Card, Qimi mouse, Hermes and MFM HDD
PC with QXLII card installed

Ask me about near NOS re-felted good quality Microdrive Carts - many available.

This is not intended for QL, but for ZX Spectrum 128.
UK version exists (search for "ZX Spectrum keypad"), but the spanish one is more common.

Ah, yes that makes sense. I thought that it must be QL due to the BT connector type plug and had forgotten that the +2A/B and +3 also had them. Thanks.

Am I correct that all you can get out of the joystick connectors on the QL are 5 different keys?

Yes, good point.

This is for the 'toastrack' 128K - the one with the heatsink on the side of it. It gives the spectrum a full editing keypad - the code to drive it is already in the ROM.
