Make beautiful CW music!

The MacKey shown in the photo is #031/2007 and I am the lucky owner. It is truly an object of beauty, almost too pretty to be used! Michel takes pride in his work - his skill and workmanship are impeccable. The base for this particular key is made of Afzelia, an African hardwood.

As an added bonus, he includes drawings and parts photos with the key. Because his work is one at a time, you'll have to be patient if you can get on his list. It's worth the wait, and you will find that from the initial correspondence until shipping and final communication that you are dealing with a world-class gentleman. You are in for a great experience if you do business with Michel. His email is mchristiaens@edpnet.be. The website is Flemish (I don't understand the words - but I "understand" the photos) and you can see more of his fine work.
