  1. I have actually built one. I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to make the contacts.
  2. What do you want for it TT?
  3. A SpeedX, is that basically a J38 key, just newer? They sure look alike. I found one in good shape for 43 bucks on QTH.com. The guy also has a J38, but it's pretty rough. Missing parts and the plating is ate up.
  4. Looks like it's missing its terminal connections and the conductor going from the contact under the lever. Other than that, that's not a bad looking key.
  5. So I can't go wrong with a J38 huh? What about a J37? I see one that's going for 30 on QTH.com. They're built a little different but I can't tell if the materials are different or not.
  6. It's funny how a J37 looks a lot like a Nye Viking Speed-X key. I know there's not many of us on here, but does anyone have any experience with straight keys? Which ones are good and which are junk? I have to assume that the MFJ cheap key isn't the best, but other than that I don't know.
  7. Does anyone have a decent straight key laying around that is on the cheap end? There's a guy in NJ that needs my parish on 20 meters CW but I don't have a key. I'm thinking about hitting eBay and trying to find a J37 or similar.

    As much as ragheads like blades, this is just a speedy karma delivery service.

    Hey badwrench! HVAC question.

    Nevermind. I've already got it done. Got mineral oil from the pharmacist.

    Good Morning (Bitter sweet memory)

    I think G would certainly want this to continue. I believe whenever G was too busy or what not, Joel took up the slack. G isn't gone, just in another station of existence.

    The Armory is in mourning.

    I've been listening to Pandora at night when I sleep, and this song woke me up and I thought of G.
