I have an affliction, when I get an idea in my head, and work the whole thing out, I need to make it real, or it will haunt me. Since I built up Rambler No. 1 the problem of a bell location has been haunting me. I even considered adding a brazeon during the initial design phases. Then this morning it hit me, and when I had 10 minutes to spare at lunch, I was at the bench cutting up a perfectly good Crane bell.
I have seen this done before with the spring strike bells to dress up a naked shift boss, but as far as I know I am the first to piggyback a hammer strike bell like this. If you have seen it out there let me know.
Now back to work, oh and Happy Friday – Play outside!
