Telegraph key as sustain pedal

picture of sustain pedal

I made once a morse key for ham radio use. Today I had an idea to use it as a sustain pedal with my midi keyboard. I shortened the key arm a little and replaced the knob with a wooden thing, that would feel comfortable under foot.

The pedal is made from steel and stone with rubber pads at the bottom, so it doesn't slide around while playing. Looks rather unusual, steampunk-style?
