A Superb feeling Sideswiper from Master Salvatore, IK1OJM. Magnetic Tension. I was lucky to have Sal take the time to build one of these for me. Very nice. Please visit his web page . Also please visit the Sideswiper Net and join in the fun.

Excellent  Time owned: more than 12 months
I use the sideswiper regularly since one year now and this on is indeed a piece of art. You can boost up to 30 WPM with this cutie. I ordered from Salvatore a wooden-base version.
Fast and precise.

A Piece of Art Custom Made  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I'Ham from 1981 and usually I use cw and I had lot of keys,
recently I discovered this unusual way of manipulation,the sideswiper.
It is based on the idea that sidewise hand movements should be easier
and perhaps faster than up and down movements of the straight key.
All transmition is manually generated whitout electronic in an unique fashion and taste.
This is an exquisite instrument, directly derived from the original "cootie key"
and russian models, beautiful to see, and just as beautiful to operate.
It can be adjusted to work perfectly with a very nice gap and spring conctat tension,
it operates in close fantastic feedbeck due to magnetic springs also.
It is a piece of art, custom made, and you need a bit of patience, but the wait worth it.
