I'm still at it... Smile

Since Tyros replacement keys cost each about $13 (incl. shipping & tax), I thought up an innovative method to protect the keys from glue damage and create a firm platform onto which I can epoxy glue the wooden Janko key support blocks.
This method also offers a chance to revers the Janko to its original traditional zebra piano keyboard layout, in case I want to sell the Tyros and the buyer does not like the Janko layout.
The key protection consist of covering the black keys with a 0.35mm thin, galvanized tin and the white keys with 0.45mm galvanized tin covers, which only cover the top of the white keys.
After cutting the tin covers, I gently hammered them on a flat iron to perfectly straiten and flatten them.
Thus, the 0.35mm tin and its tight fit prevents all contact with adjacent keys and the keys function as normal.
This method is less risky than hot-glue gluing the wooden support blocks of the Janko layout. Albeit this method too, was reversible, it
involves hair dryer heat, which might deform the plastic keys and is not as strong as epoxy-glue. Now that I already tin covered the Tyros3 Kbd, I continue epoxy-glue the Janko layout. Here's how I did this. - It is much wiser to offer such an adapter for sale than a modified Synth or Kbd.

In case I get problems with these tin covers, I take them off and perfect the Janko adapter idea, which I already theoretically prepared.
If anyone of you innovative people like to join the challenge of constructing this elusive "universally, adjustable Janko adapter project", I like to participate in it, by offering technical ideas. Here, I already started to put forward a practical design for this adapter:
