Found some leftover brass in the bin so I decided to make myself a
decent hand key.  Came out pretty decent - 2" x 5" base, 1/2" and 3/8"
square key stock for parts, silver contacts off an old Japanese key that
got busted years ago and right now a Vibroplex bug knob with a big nylon
washer for the skirt.  I plan on making a really pretty sunburst orange
Kirinite knob/skirt tomorrow but for now what's on it feels decent.  It
sends better than I do - LOL.
