    IMG_2495.JPG IMG_2502.JPG I purchased a MAGNAKEYER from Andy, AE8J. Andy makes really great paddles at a very reasonable price. I wanted a dust cover for my new MAGNAKEYER, so I decided to make my own. I am a retired electrical engineer, but I have been doing laser cutting and engraving for over 25 years. My dust cover is made from nominal 1/8-inch thick clear acrylic. It has tight fitting finger joints, so no glue is involved in the assembly of the dust cover.

    The dust cover has an opening in the front to allow the paddles to protrude. The operator can use the MAGNAKEYER with the dust cover in place, or the dust cover can be removed during operation.

    Price: $20.00 plus shipping costs.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Nice looking craftsmanship, Walt! After CW Academy, I may treat myself to a nicer set of paddles... and I'll be sure to pick up a cover from you!

    Thank you, Spence! All I would need is the INSIDE dimensions of the cover you would like, the size and location of the cord opening in the rear and the size and location of an opening in the front for the paddles if you would like the paddles to protrude through the front.
