Shown here is the IAMBIC keyer paddle made in the St. Louis
Key style, using
parts from a telephone type lever switch. The "knobs" in this case were
insulators already affixed to the levers.
On the right side of the base is a blank spot. Some versions of this keyer
hold an additional straight key in that spot. I would show a picture, but
the sample was lost at the last club meeting, but you get the idea. Sort of
like the old Brown Brothers sets, but in miniature.
