    The builder of this wonderful key is Andy Kunik, AE8J and his email is


    Someone should email him and report back here...

    He hasn't posted to this thread since June of this year, 2019...

    My brother got a key from him a few months ago...

    Hope he is still making keys to sell...

    I was advised by Andy that he has suspended production of the magnakeyer.

    Not surprised at all.

    The material alone was eating him alive and machining stainless is a real PIA no matter
    what's in it. Tooling to machine stainless is a big factor too, didn't even mention time.

    I was going to make my own Keys years ago and instead gave N3ZN some input.
    N3ZN is now world wide and why he is still there.

    Guys who do make Keys do it for a realitivy short time for mostly the above reasons.

    Wow! That's too bad, but understandable. It was an incredibly designed and built key for an unbelievably low price.

    My bother and I (and everyone who has one) are very lucky to have one of these beauties!

    Thank you Andy for producing a gem of a key!

    I just happen to have two brand new MK01 spares, both with Walt's custom dust cover, the original and an extra set of custom finger pieces like in the photo below. Please contact me via email if interested.
