    When I was a code guy for the usaf we made these speed keys with hack saw blades which had a really great flexibility. Yes, the one in the vid is wimpy.

    Here is a link showing a modern version of the older telegraph unit.

    Thats a speed telegraph unit. Instead of doing dits and dots up and down, these units allow the operator to use a side to side motion to send much faster code.

    I'm going to be here for a while...

    I hope you charged an extra $20 for that. Are all the panels 3phase?

    New roof raised in areas

    Could this perhaps be a modular home trucked to the site and assembled? Hard to tell whats going on just with a roof shot.

    inert materials burial on site

    These are Elm tree stumps and parts that the builder buried on my property in 1960 when the house was built. The cross street is named "Old Elm". They were discovered when I was having a curtain drain installed in 2011.

    1969 Home wiring

    That was probably due to Unions. Most big cities used mostly copper for that reason.

    New blog

    Benign is a word most closely associated with Malignant (as in tumor). If an "easy" report is B9 is a tough report Malignant? Poor word choice.

    Low Voltage Lighting Controls

    Mike: My parents built in the 50's and these low voltage lighting systems were sold as a security feature. But our system had both interior and exterior lights. There was a master control in the master bedroom with numbers up to (I think) 12. Each number on the dial corresponded to a light and if you heard a noise in the night you could dial the number and turn on a light. There was also an all on position. Not sure if the solenoid switches are still available.
