Take a look, if you like,  to this link:

Well, I know, it´s not a good,wonderful, and perfect straight key, but it´s useful for communication. What else we want? It works quite fine...

 Grin. Lots of things that do not have the name Begali on them can be used for sending high quality Morse. There's a website I once found with many photos of unlikely things that some guy made into keys for sending Morse.

It just occurred to me, because I'm hungry, that the switch that turns on the light when you open the refrigerator door could be used for sending code, too, but the top speed would have to be about 5 wpm.  Grin

A quick search revealed that the stapler key has already been invented, along with a couple of banana keys and a liver casserole key. An endless variety.
