Reviews Summary for Clipsal straight key
Clipsal straight key Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $100
Description: Clipsal keys were made by Gerard Industries, Park Terrace, Bowden,
South Australia for the Defense Forces during World War 2 and
manufacture continued after the war when they became popular keys for
amateur radio operators. Clipsals were made in two and three terminal
models and the firm also made WT8AMP keys. They are often incorrectly
referred to as PMG keys. They did not have circuit closers and the
terminals were on the opposite side. Most had brass fittings, but some
also had steel fittings. A few however were used on PMG radio
circuits. ~Australian Telegraph Keys and Instruments By Ron McMullen

Smooth, great feel, good looking key  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I love the look, feel, and action of this Australian key. My Clipsal is the two terminal model, which I use everyday. A very distinctive looking straight key due to its extremely wide diameter knob skirt.
