It is with great sadness that I report the passing of my friend and colleague Tim Soxman, W3ZVT. Tim passed away on September 19th, 2009, after a long illness. He was a good friend, and he will be missed.
The Sox Key
"Supporting the Art of Morse Code"
Winner of the Richard Harvey Foundation Award for the year 2000
Morse Express presents the Sox Key, a hand-made miniature telegraph key perfect for portable operation. The Sox Key is made by Tim Soxman, W3ZVT.
The Sox Key is a tiny delight to use. With the base and main parts machined from brass, it weighs in at a whopping 3 Ounces, including the cord. The base measures 1x 2" and the key stands 1.25" tall to the top of the knob. It's easily carried in pocket or purse, or you can even operate it hand-held! The attached cord is terminated in a 1/8" phone plug.
Where's the spring? It
doesn't have one! Tension
is magnetic, and is fully adjustable via the screw just forward of the
trunnion. The knob-over-base design insures that the key won't tip
when in use, and in fact it has a very comfortable feel to it.

What Others are Saying...
let me try one of his pre-production
keys - just like the one now
offered for sale. Even though I hadn't used a straight key in years,
within a very short time I was sending clean, crisp CW with this little
hand pump. It is amazing how stable it is and the feel of this little
wonder is absolutely fantastic!
I thought the price was a bit high but I can see how much work is in
it and it is definitely worth the money. It's fast, and a pure delight to
use. Even my wife thinks it's cute!
It's great! - Here's a photo:
I received mine today. After a bit of adjustment, I found it very
usable .. amazing for such a small key (smaller than I had expected). I
find I can send as well with it as with larger hand keys and the more
I use it the better it feels. An excellent key. I like it much better than
my other "mini key" (which is 3-4 time larger).
