Due to the rise in the cost of acrylic there will be new pricing in effect from 1st November 2023

First, a little bit about me!


I have been a licensed Ham Radio operator since 1990 and have a particular interest in CW. I am a member of several CW clubs including the FOC, of which I am the immediate past President (2021 to 2023) I handed over to my successor, Bob GU4YOX on Saturday 30th September 2023.

CW has been the mode I have always operated since getting my licence.
Appreciating quality engineering, I gravitated towards Begali Keys, having a reputation of producing the best keys that money can buy.


A few years ago I decided to make myself a cover from laser cut acrylic, as there was no one else doing this at the time. It was not long before others started asking me to make them for their keys too!
After some time, I came to the notice of Bruna and Piero Begali, following some positive comments from their customers, for whom I had made some covers, to my absolute honour, I was asked by Bruna to be recognised as an official Begali Partner.
Being the only supplier of covers recognised officially by the Begali factory is something which I am very proud of.

    

Since then Bruna, her husband Roby, and Piero have become very dear friends of both my wife, Angie, and I. As such, I have had the absolute honour of assisting Begali, as a representative, at 3 or 4 of the last QSO Today online Ham Radio Expo's and for the March 2023 one, produced a 30 minute video presentation, on Begali, for the event.

You can watch the presentation here:

COVERS

All of my covers are made to order. That way, I can ensure the correct fitment of the panels with each other and I can also carry out any engraving at the time of making the actual cover. They are laser cut from crystal clear 3mm acrylic (Perspex). Before sending your cover to you, I always test assemble the cover and send you a photo of it together, and if I have the same key in my shack, I test fit it over my key too!

I already have templates for the majority of Begali's keys, but in the case that I don't, I will need a few measurements from you. I will advise at the time of ordering.

Here are some examples of covers I have already made for some proud Begali owners:-
