      Fred/Andrew?,

      You should at the least remove the paddle and knobs before packing and
      shipping bugs as well
      as remove the pendulum/speed weight(s) Also. use twist ties to fasten
      the lever in place so it is not
      flopping about. Removed parts should be placed in padded bags so they
      are not bouncing about, also.

        Good morning, Andrew.   

        Any chance an ex- Sparks?

        Take off the weights.  Take off the finger paddle and the thumb knob, put in small plastic bag.   Put the weight in a separate plastic bag.

        Take an elastic and wrap around the vibrator and the damper - damper post.

        Wrap entire key in a generous amount of bubble wrap - about five or six feet long, half way insert the knob and paddle finger pieces, tape them there, continuing to wrap, right at the end put the weights.  Tape with packing tape.  Pull down the bubble wrap from the front and back of the key so that one covers the front end of the key, one the back side, tape with packing tape.  

        Place a generous layer of packing material on the bottom of a medium-large size box.  place the wrapped key in the middle, make sure that the packing is dense so the key does not move, pushing packing material down around the key, adding more packing, coverig the key, fill the box.

        Seal box so it does not pop open and make a mess your cat will love.

        Write address on box, ship by US Post Office.

        US Post Office has a flat rate box, you can fit the key into this.
