Thanks Steve for the fun project! I think I’ll make a few of these for young nieces to take home with them.

@Crushgroovin: Haha…well, you aren’t alone. Due to my son and me, my wife has officially banned the rattle from our house.

@bradshaw Add more teeth and hook it up to a power source, and it could be classified as a device of torture.

These are great! I need to make a couple of these and send them home with my Grandkids, just as they’re leaving my home.

Everything old is new again ! That’s what the bobbies of old used to call for backup
along with the police whistle ..somewhere around the family there’s a
old dark wood one in a trunk or box..and no kidding NOISE !
Perfect execution Steve..oops, isn’t that what the recipient’s parents are thinking ?

Steve, this is really cool, although it looks big enough to use as a weapon. LOL. Actually, I’ve got a few knobs to make and your method will work better than the way I was doing them. Thanks. I’m gonna pass this on to Woodbutcher3 as a suggestion for his woodworking for kids class. And just think, NO BATTERIES REQUIRED!!!

As I was watching this, my wife said “I really like his videos. They are very well done.”. As for me, I think that they are VERY entertaining. Keep up the good work.

I love these vids, too. Although, I have to wait way too long for a phone modem download – not in a very high tech area and I’m not paying $600 for Sat.

Rance will be helping me build these, too. If he doesn’t, I will be using one as a weapon!
