The key made by a former military firm for mobile and fixed military
communication stations witch have still used in Army.
The mechanical construction of the MORSE key has been assembled on a
4 mm thick cast plastic by 2 screws.
As god that would formed a self-sufficing unit.
But in using for keeping the MORSE key on  stable position under operator's hand,
the thick plastic plate has been fixed on a base plate made of thin steel.
By the four holes on the base plate it can be fixed on the desk.
The covering plate is assembled by two ribbed screws on the plastic plate.
The MORSE key is warded off the staining and physical/mechanical  damage by that covering.



The MORSE key is basically a conventional working mechanism.


The moving lever is fixed by two adjustable screws locating

on two sides on a "U" shape bow.

The moving lever made of aluminum.

The two adjusting screws are conic-shaped for less friction.

Moreover by those adjustable screws can be corrected

the wearing affect in frequent use.

They are showed in the photo below clearly:



There are two places where you can make adjusting:

In the rear of the MORSE key lever can be seen a screw adjusting

the distance of the contact points.
On the adjustable screw in the middle of the lever is fixed a small spring. 

By the spring resilience can be adjusted the lever pressing force. 

Each of the two screws can be fixed by a ribbed counter-nut.
At the end of the lever the manipulator plastic knob is also fixed by a threaded screw.



In the photo below is showing the connection ability to a transmitter by one meter long double isolating rubber cable

assembling with a wall-plug:



The base plate and the covering are grayed.
For the small size of the MORSE key was named  "Mini key".

In Russia It it is also named as "mounted-attack" key .

At the "mounted-attack" key instead of the base made of thin
steel plate there is a hide rope for fixing the key to the left wrist.
