Excellent easy kit, nice paddles.  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This is a very simple touch keyer kit, easily constructed by anyone with reasonable soldering skills in less than 1 hour. It performs exactly as described and can be mounted anywhere or in any box the user wishes. Very good value for money.

As with ANY touch keyer though, be aware of their susceptibility to stray RF causing them to key themselves. This happens to me above 18 MHz only. I have a good ground, very low SWR but I use ladder line feed into the shack and this line is necessarily very close to the keyer, which is close to the tuner. No wonder!

If you have very low SWR, 100W or less, and use coaxial cable and a good ground you probably won't have any such stray RFI effects. Just a word of warning for those new to touch keyers. 
Product is in production.
