outdoor loud bell
« on: December 07, 2016, 12:08:15 PM »
Does anyone have an outdoor bell they can part with cheap? I tossed all my old stuff when I retired, now I have a good friend who has asked me to replace his driveway bell.

Crap.  I did until about a month ago.  One of the old dual MaBell outdoor ringers.

I'll ask if it's still out there, but I think the property sold.

I just did a house cleaning and tossed out 2 of them! I used them in small ma & pa motels.  It always happens!   :016:

Mark... just got in.The unit I have is a new Wheelock UTA-WH-VPS. I'll test it tonight. If it'll meet your needs and tests good it's yours for a 6 pack plus shipping. :011:

This unit may be an over kill for you. It has the strobe that flashes phone on a strobe and choice of 4 different ring/chime tones. The down side is you have to have it power by 115VAC outlet. I used them in jet engine rebuild factories for the loud bell and strobe. I used a standard power cord terminated on the circuit board for power. So you'd have to have a power plug nearby out of the weather. It is new in box.

It's yours if you want it.

Dave, that is overkill and there's no nearby electric. Thanks for looking.

Ken, they are pricey everywhere, and radio shack doesn't have anything with a bell that will live long in the Pa. weather under a little overhang.
Thanks.

Sam I'll PM you my number.

Mark, Glenn got back with me and unfortunately they did not grab that bell off the shelf in the shop when they sold his parents' house.  It just sold about a month ago though.  If Sam doesn't have what you need, I can make a trip over there, knock on the door and see if the new owners will let me go out there and get it, assuming it's still there.

I don't want anyone to go out of their way Trace. I thought it would be easy to find one here, if not my friend will just have to buy one on line somewhere. I PM'd Sam
Thanks.
