    I picked this up in Xenia this year. Thought I'd try to get up to speed with CW but it is not happening. This is Begali's basic entry level key. Comes with an optional set of black paddles, cleaning cloth, metal feeler gauge, dust cover, cable and in original packaging. I'd like to get it to someone who can -- and will enjoy it.

    $125 shipped. Paypal preferred. I'm good in QRZ.

    Here is the info from the Begali Website:

    The Simplex Basic may be our least expensive key, but it is a very capable CW instrument that can hold it’s own against many far more expensive keys on the market. It is a iambic key with a heavy (1.4 kg or more than 3 pounds) cast base and gold plated components, using long springs for the return force. Like our other keys it is manufactured using NC machinery for absolute precision. Micro-threaded screws are used for all adjustments. The arms are held by 4 ball bearings that are embedded in the base, and they are made of a light-weight alloy that provides very low moving mass - this allows excellent responsiveness at high speeds even when set for a very light touch. The contacts are 925/000 silver. The key comes with a protective dust cover.
    The base of this key is made by melting and casting phosphatized iron. As a result, no two bases will be identical, even though the overall shape and dimensions are ensured by the mold. A rough uneven surface with individual patterns is characteristic for this process.

    With its uniquely shaped base and finger pieces this key is not only a precision instrument for the CW operator but also a piece of art that you can proudly display! Find out how users rated the Simplex paddle on eHam.
