Telegraph Key USB Drive #6

I turned a keypad from mild steel on the lathe, and soldered it in place with paste solder.

Used Birchwood Casey Super Blue (cold gun blue) to darken the brass and steel of the telegraph key.  I also soldered the piano wire steel pivot pin as well.

Above, the telegraph key after polishing away some of the blackening.

And, here everything in place.  Next, I’ll engrave the top copper plate.
