Sultan 2, Homebrew guitar shaped Sideswiper.
My first homebrew key is an old fashioned design, known as a strap key. This is called Sultan 1.
My cootie key is the guitar shaped one. Made from parts from the junk box and the arm is just a piece of spring brass. The key is 20cm x 9cm. This is called Sultan 2. It is a dream to use! [G4CPA].
TWanger Sideswiper by TW Radio.
I really enjoy using the TWanger, it has such a smooth feel to it, and it's quiet in use. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it's easy to adjust with superb magnetic damping and springy contacts, truly a thing of beauty. [G4CPA].
Homebrew Welsh Zinger Sideswiper (prototype).
My new Welsh Slate prototype cootie:
- Arm is 55 mm long American hacksaw blade. Notice the brand name of the blade, "Morse", it was really predestined for that use...
- Base is 80 mm long x 55 mm wide x 20 mm.
- The Paddle is also slate , and has a great feel to it and sends sweetly.
