The Dow-Key Census
I am establishing a database to evaluate information about Dow-Key models and variations. If you have a Dow-Key bug I request that you provide informaiton about it to aid in this effort. I will post results of this census on this web page and publish them in the N7CFO Keyletter. I need the following information:
Model: (Universal (Rotary), Original or Junior)
Label: (Winnipeg, Warren, Minnesota, Brewer, Maine, or other)
Label Position: (Parallel with base or crossways)
Finish. (Chrome, Nickel, Brass, Black Crackle, Gray Crackle, Other.)
Damper. (Rotary turns with the mechanism [Universal Model], Post with plastic pad, Post with captive disk, goal post, other)
Binding Posts. (Threaded thumbscrew, Slot top with hole completely through, slot top, hold not through, turned [wadcutter] edge, hole not through the top, other)
Shape of paddles: Rectangular, rounded corners, tapered front, other)
Type of paddles: Red plastic, black plastic, other.
If you have a digital camera, I would appreciate one or more photos - I am building quite a library of photos, and the information on them will come in handy later if I find any more variations.
