Indeed, if you need to 3D-print the missing key, it would be better to do for the 5 ones to keep some homogeneity.

Wow! The state of that thing is what I image my MZ80K was before my grandad sent it to me.

My 711 Smells of Magic Smoke after the PSU smoked. I seen Magic Smoke come out of the speaker and I quickly turned it off after freaking out for around 3 seconds. I think it was the X2 capacitor, which is the most common failure of MZ700 PSUs.

Can you show us a picture of the MZ Jo? I'm interested in how it is going after this time.
