The Classic Speed-X Keys

Tradition?  Take a look at Model 322.  Now thumb through the January 1937 issue of QST.  First made by Les Logan, then by E.F. Johnson, and now by Wm M. Nye Company, the zinc bases of the Speed-X keys have been cast in the the same molds since the 1930's.  When you purchase a Speed-X key you are not just buying a key, you are buying a piece of telegraphic history.

Accessories for your Nye Speed-X keys...

Navy Knob $15.50
Large round knob with skirt, as seen on the Master Key and 330C images above.
(see also the Hi-Mound Mushroom Knob with Skirt, which also fits the Speed-X keys)

The Nye Navy Knob is shown on the key in the picture below.


 

Aluminum base plate for Speed-X and other keys...  $17.00
(The key shown is an unreleased prototype on brass-plated base, from the N1FN collection.)

The KB2 base plate is made by Nye specifically for the Speed-X 31x  and 32x series keys, but it can be used with many other keys that have mounting holes 1.5" apart.  The holes are tapped for 6-32 machine screws.  Other keys can be mounted on the base simply by drilling the mounting holes.  The base is finished in Nye's classic black crinkle paint,  has four feet at the corners for excellent stability, and is supplied with key-mounting screws.  Note that some old 32x (rectangular base) keys have 1.25" hole spacing-- options are to mount with one screw, or drill and tap one or both holes for that spacing.  As supplied, the holes are correct for all 31x oval base keys and 32x keys made after 1980. Some earlier Speed-X keys had 1-1/3" hole spacing.


Speed-X Key Springs.. $2.50

Conical coil springs, supplied by Nye as replacments for Speed-X keys, but will fit many other keys.
