Doorbell Pig Scrapers
Back when I was a kid my Grandpa welded 2 horseshoes together and attached them to a modified pig scraper to make a unique doorbell for the walk-in door on his garage. I recently made a similar doorbell for my shop.
  Pig scrapers were used during butchering to take the hair off hogs. They’re bell-shaped with a wooden handle. I cut one horseshoe in half and welded it to another complete horseshoe. Then I attached a nut to a small keychain to serve as the ringer. The keychain goes up through the pig scraper to a swivel on top. It makes a nice sound and is definitely one-of-a-kind.(Dave Dam, 111 N. Buena Vista Rd., Eau Claire, Wis. 54703 ph 715 450-2943)
