Iambic Keyer and Current Setup

Hello again,

As mentioned before, I'm not happy with the iambic pedal design shown below. Too cluttered and too many parts. Scraping this design... and the aluminum as well... Will be designing new pedal... when I got the time...

This is my current stepper driver and PC setup. The PICStep drivers (4-Axis) are housed inside the old PC casing with voltage and current meter mounted at the floppy disk space. The PC is an IBM NetVista, Pentium 4 1.6GHz with 512MB memory and 40GB harddisk. Both EMC2 and Mach3 installed for my testing... as well as DOS apps such as TurboCNC and CNCPro... Still trying to figure out why my Sherline cannot go reliably above 10ipm... BTW, the mini keyboard is 'velcro-ed' to the rack... allowing removal if needed...
