Red Rooster straight key (by K7FD)
« on: October 03, 2014, 07:42:35 UTC »






All it takes is a Red Rooster silicone oven mitt (available from kitchen stores or Amazon), 2 brass brad contacts, mono plug, and a 2 conductor cable. Punch two holes, insert brads, solder it up, and you're ready for action!

Simply slip your hand inside Red's beak and flap away for flawless dits and dahs!

Key clucks optional; chirps and birdies guaranteed! Works best at the crack of dawn.

I enjoyed looking at those. Obviously a guy with imagination and a sense of humour.
