Telegraph Key & Sounder Plans
telegraph was the only long distance instant communication device until
radio and other means came along. Railroads were always the largest
users of the telegraph and utilized them for more than a century. The
railroads would have had a very hard time operating safely and
efficiently without them.
full size plans will allow you to make an exact replica of the key and
sounder. The photo above is the "real thing" antique originals. The
originals were made in a time when quality was of prime importance and
esthetics ran a close second! These instruments were made of brass and
steel, as were all manner of other types of instruments. You will want
to make yours of these materials as well.
You can make an operating set, or as non-operating shelf models. Either
way, you can make them full size or reduce the size for really neat
items to put in your curio cabinet or as a unique desk ornament set.
The plans set consists of 10 sheets of drawings.
to let you know that the plans have arrived and I am very pleased with
them, they are very detailed and I am looking forward to building the
key and sounder. Many thanks! - John Wellings, Birmingham,
