A Word About The 1.9oz Speed-Weight


1.9oz yields a 90% weight increase over the stock 1.0oz Vibroplex weight. It diameter is 7/8” and its approximately 3/4” long. This is about the same length as the Vibroplex 1.0oz weight yet it weights 90% more. I offer this same exact weight for the McElroy & TAC series bugs which require a different size thru hole than Vibroplex. The 7/8” diameter size speed-weights were used on the mid 1936 Mac’s thru about the 1939-40 McElroy series bugs but they were only 1/4” thick and weighed about .8oz each. 2 weights were commonly used.


(Bugs were never really intended to send code at 5~10 WPM)
