Home-made Thumb Strength Telegraph Key

Here's ainspiration to build your own telegraph key-style thumb strength machine and save a lot of money:

Make do with whatever scrap metal (and/or wood) you have lying around...

You will probably have to do a bit of welding, but only a minimum was necessary for my model. Maybe you will find a way without any welding at all?

The rest was screws and bolts.

And a bit of spray paint to make it look better and more resistant against rust.

There you go! Lots of money saved.
