Ting-a-Ling

AKA Butlers Bell. Finally got my head around how to rig together a Heath Robinson mechanism to go through the 27cm thick stone door post and down the entrance hall. It incorporates retro parts from Weijntjes Ijzerwaren Amsterdam, bicycle cables and various hand-filed parts. It makes me chuckle every time I hear Joe DHL yank it. BP

Love it BP. Video of it in action, please. Preferably bizarre.

Nice one BP or was that Heath Robinson

Genius. There's nothing like a good tinkle.

Bloody brilliant, all it lacks is a little sign above the bell saying 'Front Door'.I second the call for a video too, as soon as you have a moment. Latest mag is an exceptionally good one too, well done boys.
