I also have the old Radio Shack key (same as the Ameco AM-K4).  I agree with AE5QB.  For not a lot more money, you can do much better.  I bought a J-38 key made by E.F. Johnson at a hamfest last year for $15 I think.  I should have done it years ago.  The AM-K4 is usable.  But, that lever is awfully thin.  So thin mine actually flexes.  My J-38 is just much more solid.  I find I enjoy using it much more than the AM-K4.
