Link: Bencher ST-1 and ST-2 single lever paddles

The ST-1 and ST-2 single lever paddles are a variant of the BY-1 and BY-2 iambic paddles, but instead of separate moving arms for dit and dah, a single lever assembly moves back and forth while sending CW.  

Bencher ST-1 single lever paddle.

  • Single lever assembly pivots between the dit and dah contact posts with movement similar to the BY series iambic paddle
  • Tensioning screw at rear post for adjusting spring action
  • Smoky brown molded finger pieces
  • Light touch for sending clean code
  • Powdercoated cold rolled steel base
  • Weight 3 lbs.
  • Adjustment wrench held on under the base with tool holder



Bencher ST-2 single lever paddle.  Identical to ST-1, but with chrome base.

The underside of the ST-1 and ST-2 have 3 female and male disconnect terminals for ground and each of the DIT and DAH connections.   HF transceivers equipped with either a 3.5mm (1/8") or 1/4" KEY input jack can be hooked right up with the EZ-1 kit.   The EZ-1 has a 3 wire cable with the correct female terminals on one end for the ST-1 and ST-2, on the other end a 3.5mm connector with a 1/4" adapter included.   No soldering.  Plug the terminals onto the bottom of the key, plug the other end into the KEY jack on your HF rig.
