A Word About The 1.9oz Speed-Weight


1.9oz yields a 90% weight increase over the stock 1.0oz Vibroplex weight. This 1.9oz weight is approximately 3/4” long which is about the same length as the Vibroplex 1.0oz weight yet it weights 90% more. Its is the only size speed-weight I now normally machine and keep in stock for Vibroplex and McElroy. All my weights come with a stainless thumbscrew.


This weight usually makes a marked reduction in slowing down most any Vibroplex bug without filling up the entire pendulum weight rod. This is what happens when you use 2 of the Large Vibroplex 1.0oz weights. When you do that you will loose most of your speed-weight travel adjustment. I've never like funny looking contraptions or long extended pendulum rods sticking out the back end of a bug key, to me they just doesn’t look right.


I offer this same exact weight for the McElroy & TAC series bugs and it also weighs 1.9oz. The 7/8” OD size was used on the mid 1936 thru about the 1939-40 series, however they were thinner, and (2) weights were used, with both weights together totaling around 1.6oz


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

New Publication-Soon Available


Over the past few days I’ve had the pleasure of looking through a new book called:


“Compendium of Automatic Morse Code”

written by Ed Goss N3CW (ISBN 978-0-7643-5131-0)


I must say this is an amazing piece of work that displays both visual and written chronology of the early 1800’s telegraph era up through and including the early development of what we know today as the “Electronic Keyer


It features numerous high quality images and focuses heavily on the history of early to modern day automatic morse code devices including, single and dual keyer paddles, code practice oscillator and of course electronic keyers; many of which even I had never seen before.


What a great addition this book will be to my library..   Thanks Ed, for an amazing piece of work!
