Default A Friedland ‘Master Bell'

A nice old school electromechanical bell.

I don’t know what voltage this is supposed to operate at, but it makes a nice racket when connected to 6Vd.c.

No idea where it came from.

A bit of rust so could probably do with re-painting, but it can still annoy the neighbours.

£5 anyone?

If it needs to be posted, it’s about 1.75kg, so it’s just knocking (ringing?) on the Royal Mail 2kg limit. I don’t know whether the packaging will take it into the 10kg category or not though. Second class rate up to 2kg is £3.35 (“small parcel”), for up to 10kg (“medium parcel”) it’s £6.95.

Thank you.

These were commonplace in 70's 80's burglar alarms - fitted inside & outside within the bell box. 12VDC operated and usually had a reversed biased diode connected across the terminals to reduce back emf to the alarm control panel.

It would be nice to hear an old fashioned burglar alarm bell because the current electronic warblers are often confused with car alarms & thus ignored.

It looks like this has now been claimed. I'll confirm once it's been posted.

Thank you for your info Roger Ramjet, I was wondering where it might have come from and also its operating voltage. I tickled it at 6Vd.c. and it just started ringing, so 12Vd.c. makes sense.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Andy
