 # 117 ..... HI-MOUND BK-100

Model BK-100
The BK-100 bug shown in this photo is a descendant of early Japan-made Swallow bugs, and a unique item with several atributes. It has a flat pendulum like the Vibroplex Champion which makes it a very good semi-automatic key for newcomers, and its weight is adjustable over a wide speed range. Adjustments are fitted with locknuts and face inward so the complete mechanism cam be protected by a mating clear plastic dust cover. A single fingerpiece extends from the dust cover's far end, and a small hole in the key cabinet's side permits routing an output cable to a transciever. The base is well weighted and has a rubber bottom pad that holds solid to a desk under intensiv use.
The Japanese DENTSU SEIKI BK-100 Bug Key, marketed under several names, including Lafayette, Calrad, Skillman, Hi-Mound, Jelectro, Eagle and Swallow.
Hi-Mound has been in business since just after World War II, and these well-made keys, paddles, and bugs have a well-deserved reputation for quality.  "High Mound" is the closest English translation of the founder and President's name-- Takatsuka.
Manufactured during early 60's.
There are only two slightly different examples: one has a black & chrome label and a gray base and this ultra rare one has a cream & gold label with an orange coloured base. Also presents one number graved on the base wich I don't know the meaning of it.

 # 120 ..... WWII RAF BATHTUB MORSE KEY

A superb example of a 100% original WW2 RAF Lancaster Bomber "Bath Tub" Morse Tapper. In really super condition!
This one is the brown bakelite version made in Mill Hill London, not the more common black Canadian made version. Size about 61cm x 49 cm.
All the heavy WW2 RAF bombers used the TX/RX radio and "Bath Tub" morse key although it is particularly associated with the Lancaster.  It was also used on some fighter planes, and being waterproof it was used on open canopy planes like the British torpedo bomber the Swordfish.
The heavy Bakelite case also protected against sparks.
The ball attached spring clip on the front could be flicked forward to hold down the ball knob and send a continuous carrier to enable the DF stations to get a fix on their position before the crew bailed out of a damaged aircraft.
The keys action was also designed to be easier to use by the gloved fist of the RAF wireless operator whilst the aircraft was being tossed about or trying to evade ground fire
The interior is clean without the usual areas of rust, and apart from a small wear area to the ball knob and spring wire is very unusually in super condition.
Very hard to find a better example.
This key was purchased on eBay from "Special Air Sea Services, Paul R Lewis, Sylvester Street Works, Sylvester Street, Lancaster, Lancashire LA1 5DG United Kingdom"
