      Hello all fellow Bug ops. What works great for me on my 2 Originals
      '51 DeLuxe and '68 Standard and my Blue Racer Standard about '52 is
      what I call my "2 Cents Worth Tamer". I find a Alligator Clip that
      slides nicely on the Pendelium behind the damper I clip 2 pennies on
      the Alligator Clip and face the pennies up and down or sideways to
      fine tune the speed a little I find that takes you down a few extra
      WPM if someone wants you to QRS a little while sending on a Vibroplex
      Bug. You Can also clip the pennies closer or further away from the
      damper to fine tune your speed. I hope that helps you It works great
      for me.

      An aging ham who once worked for the Postal Wire refered to the sound of the bug as the Lake Erie Swing.
