Holiday Season Delays

Well, it’s that time of year again and orders are piling up here at the W1SFR one man factory. There will be delays and wait times are already up to 4-6 weeks. I want to thank you all for being so patient and I will continue to treat every key like it’s something special. No short cuts and no compromises, and I think if you ask any of my customers, they will say it’s worth the wait.

I am very proud to have been chosen by the SKCC club to represent them by making exclusive Sideswiper (Cootie) and Straight keys using my torsion bar designs. They are being laser etched in Ohio by a fellow ham and look and feel amazing. You can go to this link to check them out:

So all the best to you and yours for the season and drop me a line and tell me how you’re getting along with your key.

  1. This is the second year in a row I have received one of your fine keys for Christmas! First was the torsion bar cootie paddle and this year I received the horizontal straight key ser# 029. Both are simply amazing!

    I would like to try out the new finger pieces that now ship with the TBCP. Do you plan to add these to your site to be purchased as a single item?

    • Hi John. I will be adding these as an option. I will still make the wood finger pieces, but they will not have the mother of pearl dot and I will only be making them for the keys with the marble base. All other keys will have the black lexan finger pieces. I am going to charge $25 for a set of the lexan finger pieces plus $3.95 shipping. I can send you an invoice for a set if you would like. Happy Christmas! Hope to hear you and your new key on the air some time soon. 73, Steve.
