Well, I’ve been planning on doing this small project for some time…

Actually, I am improving on another project that needs to upgraded.

Thus, making another project…

It ALL uses SCRAP materials & thus far has not used any wood UNTIL NOW!

The basic project is a modification to our mailbox so that we can SEE, from the House, whether or NOT the Mail HAS COME OR NOT… saving all of the steps to go out there and find that it has not come yet.
(and when uses a cane, it can be a problem)

So here it is…

Pieces are somewhat Balanced in place… and when activated, go OUT OF BALANCE.

If this Project / Blog does not qualify for the Scap It Out mini contest about Balancing, that’s OK… No hard feelings.

Starting off with a Slide Show… (I hope this works)

Now with a short Video to show it in action!

OK, I changed them to Public… had them Private for debugging…

It was FUN… and it work a lot better…

The problem was that it was getting harder to see if the flag was down or not…

It works NOW!

Thank you.
