There are a variety of old-timey code practice solutions out there. For example the Instructograph: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7J44bDItE4

The above video is actually a little more modern than my Instructograph, in that it uses an electric motor. My Instructograph is actually spring wound via a crank! And many Instructographs drive a railroad-style railroad morse sounder rather than a ham-style beeper. Much less commonly you might see a Wheatstone reperforator although these were generally used for real communications rather than for code practice.
