This is a 1981 modified Vibroplex paddle
Added gold contacts
Relocation of the springs 7/16 toward the pivots.
Added Bypass wires to cancel conductivity of the springs.
No bearings or bushings can replace the jewell pivots, so I am not looking around any more to replace my old paddle.
Works with a feather touch up to 60 wpm. My keyer limit.

Yeah, I tried your "CW Powder" idea with my Schurr Profi 2 the other day with great results for my sending, however, I forgot it was on my index finger and thumb of my right hand and ended up getting it on my RIT knob of my TT Jupiter as well as in my hair. hihi.

 

Lately I've been making skeds with Andrew, and a few other people who've been generous and patient enough to help me bring up my receiving speed.  If you hang around 7106k on Tuesday nights you'll hear me check in to the CFO net.  73
