Watching You Tube the other day I came across a chap making a simple single Paddle key. Thinking to myself that I'd never attempted a CW key build I fancied having ago!
Tony EI2KC is a very experienced CW operator and has some great videos on YouTube and one of them was this single paddle keyer that he'd built and I thought I give it a go. Consisting of a block of wood, and a hacksaw blade with various clips, it's pretty simple to make and I suspected would only take a few hours.
I've built it as a mock up to start with as I'll need to clear the blade of paint and wire it up. But for a first attempt I'm pretty pleased so far and once I've had a good check I'll start on the final result. Wish me luck!
