    It depends on the user. In my hand it fell apart, but I'm not a delicate user. The Vibroplex is more resistant to me.;)

    Bought an old JJ38 about a month ago. Shipping was twice the price paid for the key. Cleaned it up a bit, and replaced the ball bearings with new ones from eBay. I'm very happy with it.

    I wanted to upload a picture, but how do I do it?

    You picked a winner. I got mine in the 90s. I'm a straight key guy, but when I use a paddle, it's my Bencher. It was the standard back then, and they are going to have to pry mine out of my cold dead hands. :)

    Use the edit window at the bottom of your screen to write your content. Position the cursor where you want to insert the picture. Then click on "Upload a File" and browse on your computer for the picture. (Note: High resolution pictures cause a lot of scrolling by forum users, so it is considered good form to send reasonably-sized pictures.)

    You can insert it as a thumbnail or full-sized and you can insert more than one picture. Here's an example, showing the button to click -

    When you are finished with your entire content, click on "Post Reply".

    Excellent illustration!! :) With the footnote that this option is ONLY available during the 30-minute "edit window". After that time has lapsed, simply "reply to your own thread" and follow the steps KG7WGX has pointed out

    Sorry. I should have called it the "Reply window"...I was trying to describe the area where a user can write a reply to the thread.

    Thank you!!!

    I simply have no words to explain how I missed it. For some reason I kept focusing on the 'Image' and 'Insert' icons on the 'Reply' window toolbar.

    The funny thing is that I had the exact same issue with another forum platform. Looks like I'm not a 'graphic' guy.

    Here is the JJ38 I mentioned:

    You did well.

    Great key, and they always sell for a bit more than that all day long.

    //AD5HR//That operat0r must have had some tough fingernails to "chew up" the
    knob like that, must have taken hundreds and hundreds of hours of operating.
