Simple CW Keyer

This is a homebrew IC keyer using a 7400, a 7473 and two 555s. Here's a schematic similar to the one used for this project.

The difference is that I used two 555s instead of one 7413 for the clock and tone generator functions.

The paddle is made of spring strip, silver contacts, nuts, screws and bakelite pieces. The enclosure is also homebrewed.
