The project took a long time because we were learning. We saw how the doorbell works. We chiseled the hole in the wood to make it the right size for the new mechanism. My boy found the wire stripper, because the wire broke a couple of times when we were trying to wrestle it back into the hole. We stripped the wire, wrapped it around the contacts and tightened them in place. He brought the portable electric screwdriver/drill, drilled pilot holes, and put in the screws. There was a lot of exploring and investigating and experimenting. Every time I went to look for a tool, he would make the loud old-fashioned mechanical bell jangle non-stop, making my teeth rattle.
What a joy to watch talent develop and unfold.
