Celebration of the
Express presents the 2018 Christmas Key
year Morse Express is doing something a little different with its
signature Christmas Key. The 2018 Christmas Key incorporates
an integral crystal-clear acrylic cover over a chrome plated brass key
on a circular base, and with a machined translucent green
your cable to the miniature binding posts, put the cover back on, and
you are ready to put this attractive little key to work for Straight
Key Night, on a mountaintop, or in the comfort of your home
The internal wires from the
miniature binding posts are traced into the bottom of the base, which
is elevated a few millimeters above the table by small rubbery feet,
which also keep the key from slipping. Contact spacing and
spring tension are both controlled by the single adjusting screw just
forward of the trunnion.
The cover is
secured with 3 knurled thumbscrews is easily removed, and
provides an entry way for a cable. The cover height is 30mm (
1.2") from the table to the top of the cover, and 50mm (2") from the
table to the top surface of the knob. The base diameter is 50mm(2") or
45mm (1.8") without the cover. The 2018 Christmas key weighs 4-1/4
Marshall Emm (N1FN), owner
of Morse Express, says “the Christmas keys represent my annual
opportunity to play around with key design and to work with a master
craftsman (Ujiie San at GHD Telegraph Key) to bring new designs to
life. I hope the 2018 Christmas Key will bring a little joy to your
celebration of the holidays, and add something special to Straight Key
