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.
