Spoke Bell (Video Added)

次回、この記事の日本語版を投稿します。

In the last post "Nichibei Fuji Bell" I listed a link to a revolving bell on Youtube. I received an email from H.G. who watched the video and wrote in with the following request:

"Thanks to your blog I am a believer in that fact that many old things are not junk, but actually a kind of buried treasure.  I was wondering if you could post a simple video of the spoke bell mentioned in an earlier post."  

Indeed, there is a post on the cable actuated spoke bell, as well as the rod actuated spoke bell but no video of either so the request is legitamate and shall be fulfilled.

Spoke bells are an ingenious design, whereby, when the lever attached to the handlebars is depressed, rod-linkage moves a spring held clapper into the spokes, and, as the wheel turns, each spoke then bends and releases the spring held clapper rending a machine-gun of rings:  ding-ding-ding-ding-ding-ding. 

(Okay, H.G. here you go, just click here or on the linked photo below to see and hear the spoke bell in action.)
