I bought the whole amount of keys from the plant which made communications equipment for weather forecast stations and military use. They were made about 10 years ago and the manufacturer is not able to make them any more.
There are 2 types of keys though some parts are similar:
TKF- is bigger, contains a built-in LC filter below and has a metal fixing plate.
TK  - is a smaller one with 4 fixing holes in the base.
I have several hundred of TKF keys and less than 50 of TK available.
The price is 18 USD each. We need 10 USD more shipping charge if mailing abroad.

Jim and Oleksandr,
I received the TK Key last Saturday. It is in perfect shape and no damage in route. Thanks to both of you for getting it to me. I don't know how soon I'll have it on the air, but it sure is a conversation piece. I hope to hear or see you on the bands as my latest interests are in digital and PSK31. Thank you again and 73s.
