      Hi,
      I am the webmaster for my local model engineering society, and
      when the members give me nothing for the web site, I (mis)use
      the blog for my own ends.

      If you go to www.wwsme.org.uk and look at the Blog, a page or
      so down are some photos of my homebrewed bug key, for the design
      of which I cribbed the dimensions from a Vibroplex loaned by
      a local Ham.

      It has since had a varnished wooden frame added to hide the
      imperfections in my shaping of the marble slab (I don't have the
      time to serve an apprenticeship as a trainee stone mason)

      As you will note, I have brought the paddles down to desk height
      for personal comfort in using it.
