Certain keys not working, possible repair?

eBay is selling Aluminum Apple Wired Keyboards at a reasonable price, and I would like to have one for my MBP. The listings describe only certain keys not working. Should I buy with the hope of being able to repair? I am very handy, and have benefit from MANY of ifixit guides.

Thank you.

I've purchased five of these keyboards off of eBay. They listed as maybe one or two keys not working. I wanted to use them just for repairing machines and I didn't care if maybe a caps key didn't work. They all started off OK but as they warmed up more and more keys failed. All are unrepairable and were a total waste of time and money.
