Well, I took the plunge and bought a Vibroplex bug from a guy on QTH.com. It's a 1954 Lighting (#185391) and it just arrived today. Man, it is a nice looking key. Just beautiful. His photo of it didn't do it justice. Gray base. Perfect chrome after a little time with a micro fiber cloth.
Gentleman I got it from was second owner, having got it from a now SK friend. Both used it a lot, and obviously took care of it. I'd like to think it has a good home once again.
Only played with it a couple hours so far, but think I'll be able to pick this up with some practice. Need to slow it down a touch, but there's certainly ways of accomplishing that.
Well, back to bug practice.
