KX3 Operating Tip: Using the KXPD3 attached paddle as a hand key

The KX3's attached keyer paddle is very flexible. Normally it is  
configured for right-handed use (MENU:CW KEY2 set to LEFT=DOT). You  
can reverse it by setting the parameter to LEFT=DASH.

In addition, you can set the CW KEY2 parameter to HAND. In this case  
both the left and right paddles will function like a hand key.

The KEY jack on the left side panel has the same feature, under  
control of the CW KEY1 menu entry. You can independently set up CW  
KEY1 and CW KEY2. So, for example, you could use an external hand key  
at KEY while using the KXPD3 as a keyer paddle, or vice-versa.

Re: KX3 Operating Tip: Using the KXPD3 attached paddle as a hand key

I would like to order a set of set screws and maybe a new top plate for my KXPD3. I put in the firm spring which works for me but had trouble with the top plate getting one of the pivot posts back in all the way...finally cleaning out the hole with a small round file.  All works great now, but a few spare parts would be good to have.
Can we expect a parts list sometime on the paddle?
