Kent Engineers have been manufacturing CW Morse keys
for almost twenty five years. Being specialists in precision
engineering, together with our modern well-equipped machine
shop enable us to produce one of the highest quality range
of paddles and Morse telegraph keys on the market today.
Because of our commitment to perfection we manufacture
just three basic models of Morse key - the twin iambic paddle
key, the single paddle key and the hand key, which is available
with a traditional wood or a steel base (KTI model). All three
designs are fitted with precision ball race bearings on the
key pivots which give our keys the superior feel which is
unrivalled by any other manufacture. All three models are
available assembled ready to use or as a fully machined and
finished kit of parts for self assembly.
Kent Engineers are unique in
the fact that we manufacture all machined parts ourselves
and so are able to pay special attention to small details,
such as fine pitched threads on all contact screws (40TPI),
machined flats on the contact adjusting pillars and instrument
knurling on all adjusting screws and locking nuts to ensure
micro precision contact adjustment. No special tools are needed
for contact or spring tension adjustment and all keys are
fitted with non-slip feet.
