Check out the video on my second channel "my mechanics insights" to see how I made the wooden cover for this door bell.Here's the link:clip-share.net/video/G6RHQA-k1SI/video.htmlThanks for watching 🙂
I was wondering about the exposed workings. I'll check it out.Your videos are so relaxing to watch, not so relaxing to make I am sure.Please keep up the good work.
I thought the coils were on wooden spools.
Seen that too, I watch all your videos and wait till the next one is out. You are a Genius.
No Doubt, I am impressed of your work. Stay safeRandom Hands

GAGAGAGAGAGA! I will now count to 3 and then I am still the unprettiest Clip-Sharer of all time. 1...2...3. GAGAGAGAGAGA!!! Thank you for your attention, dear ran
Thank you very much my friend, I'm a fan.
When the pieces are clamped in the nickel plating bath, is the nickel able to adhere underneath where the objects are clamped? Or do you need to reposition the clamps to finish the plating?Your work is extremely impressive, you're obviously very skilled and I assume you love to do it. Thanks for sharing.
No, I change the position of the clamps a few times
I am fascinated by your restorations. We own a house built in 1913. One of the first things we did was replace the mid-century electric chime doorbell with a buzzer bell (modern repro). My husband installed a governer to slow the electric pulse and deepen the ring of the bell.Old houses need old doorbells. Obviously, I really loved this restoration of yours.
Cool story, thanks for sharing :-)
Lots of people say I’m a perfectionist. Your on a whole new level. Congratulations. I will watch all your videos. I clean my small screws using a 3 pound lorton rock tumbler with steel shots and about a tablespoon of dish soap. I usually let it run for 48 hours. It even cleans the threads.
I think my favourite bit was preserving the old newspaper clippings, then adding your own note to your grandson between the new windings. That was so sweet! I also loved how you re-created the makers mark... that was over and above
Yeah old grandpa "My Mechanics".
@my mechanics yeah, I liked that part too. Small note - If you make such "time capsules" in the future I'd recommend you to use an ordinary pencil, because pencil graphite doesn't fade, unlike pen ink, that in some cases completely disappear in 30 years.
Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it :-)
Generally, while watching your videos, I try to play either a newly learned chord or previously learned chords without looking at the guitar. I think you might want to consider restoring a broken, very old electric or acoustic guitar 😄
Очень нравится, смотреть как из ничего делаешь что-то ☝️✊🤝👍👍👍
I just have to say it. I find it really good that you let your mistake with the paint in the video. I think a lot of people would have edited it out. You have done a really good job. Well done!!
Glorious work as always!
Thank you so much
The growth of this channel over the passed few years has been extraordinary and very deserved. Couldn't be happier for your success!
@C B I know why you deleted that last reply lol . Anyways on to something that actually matters. . . Good luck with the ''first part'' of your reply. Be stubborn, apply yourself , and set some short term goals CB ,you can do this. 😉
@Nathan Arievlis Kind of you to offer but I'm on a diet for New Year. How about you grow up a little and act like the 6 year old you clearly are?
@C B how bout a waah burger and some french cries . Happy New Year , ya fuckin baby 😃
@Nathan Arievlis No need for coarse language.🙄
Don't be so silly Benjamin.🙄
I've been following you for a while at this point, and after watching a couple of other restoration channel videos I now realize how much you've spoiled me. I love how thorough you are, and how you share with us each problem and solution. Also, the way you lay out all the pieces before and after they are cleaned up makes for a very cohesive narrative. I never wince while watching you work, and no other restoration channel makes me literally drool, so 🌟
Yeah, no comparison. He never takes something that is destroyed and just sands it til it’s 0.125 the thickness and then just skips steps. Just good, unique, quality through and through.
Wow, thank you
As a machinist from Canada, I absolutely love your work! It goes to show how important it is to make products out of high quality materials that can stand the test of time and that are able to be beautifully restored by skilled, intelligent individuals like yourself.Not like a lot of garbage that's produced today. You wont see any 2020 doorbells being restored in over 100 years. I hope manufacturers get back to their roots and get away from cheap, mass produced, plastic, unserviceable junk.
Nice to hear that and thanks for your support 🙏🏻👍🏻🙏🏻
Really awesome. You are the best!
Thank you, I'm glad you like it :-)
"This one of a kind very confusing metal piece that I've never seen before is broken. No worries, I make new one"
truly talented, what an amazing restoration! 🤯
@Matt P Me?
You should learn a thing or two about quality.
Oh please. Some 17 year old intern posted this comment on his lunch break.
Whooooa what the heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeell
Нифига себе, впервые такое вижу))
i have seen this in action bec my mum has one for her doorbell when i was little, man thats 40 years ago! feeling old yet?
I'm so glad you got a new button for the sandblaster
I'm glad you like it :-)
Loved this 👍👍
So glad to hear that :-)
you're the man!
Thank you :-)
Yeah coil winding is an art in and of itself. I used to make transformers, the step up and down variety. I was just an employee, the boss did all the design work and we've fabricate them up. I was always pleased when I got a nice smooth and flat winding. Most had 220v primary with an over wind for 240v on top, sometimes a dozen outputs on the secondaries, very time consuming. Heaven help you if you had a bad wind underneath all the good ones...I know it's just me so apologies but I'd have soldered the link wire then added a heatshrink sleeve, once done they would have gotten a ptfe varnish dip to protect them from corrosion. But that's me. Still a beautiful thing
Man, what an amazing video, I'm impressed with all the details of the restoration. All done with great care and professionalism. This is pure art at its core. I got goosebumps when you put the old newspaper in a frame, there are a lot of details. Greetings from Brazil 🇧🇷
Nice to hear that, obrigado :-)
Way more detailed and craftsmanship than what I was expecting. Most restoration channels lack your attention to detail. Kudos. Also live the fact that you're not talking incessantly over the video. The work speaks for itself.
To be honest, this restoration is masterpiece. Amazing work.
Thanks, I'm glad you like it 🤗
Обожаю смотреть на работу этого мастера!
@Андрей Petrov сам сказал, сам ответил🙂
@Юрий Гаркавцев могу предположить, что через несколько дней вы снимете его и уберете куда подальше. Слишком уж пронзительный звук он издаёт.
@Андрей Petrov мне кажется такой звонок будет очень круто повесить мома и сейчас
У меня вопрос. Зачем восстанавливать старые электроприборы? Ими никто не будет пользоваться. Если только для музея.
24:46 the life is made of small things
Thanks for watching, much appreciated
I love watching these videos. It's very relaxing. I would love to see an online tour of your shop. You must have every tool and machine known to man.
Que restauração maravilhosa! ............ O restaurador é incrível. É um mestre e pai dos restauradores neste canal! Eu adoro suas restaurações com minuciosidade e criatividade de resolver certos problemas na falta de peças e maneiras corretas de se fazer corretamente os procedimentos e colocar isso nos vídeos.... Meus parabéns!
Beautiful, as always. I appreciate that you went back and fixed the error instead of just editing the video to make it appear that it worked the first time 👏 bravo!
This one had it ALL. Countersink, , chamfering, smoothed edges, “I make a new one,” sandblasting, woodwork, electric repair, sanding, buffing, polishing, electroplating, et al. Been watching and admiring for years, and would put this project among your very best. Thank you for continuing to post these beautiful videos.
Haha, thanks a lot :-)
And don't forget the best part: when he gets to use tools he's previously restored himself in these videos, like the Arbor Press!
wow. you must know a lot about repairs
The attention to detail is off the charts. Not to mention the excellent video editing that people miss when they are entranced by your handy work. 1000% fine art
Fantastic stuff, I hope to one day be able to do this type of restoration!
Love this video. Look simple but I, amazed at the number of techniques you used in this restoration not to mentioned so many special tools and jigs you made just for this restoration! Love it!
Glad it was helpful!
The shop techniques were, for me, were the best part of the video!
This guy can restore literally anything! Except my heart, it's too far gone. Great video btw. 👍
keep going :-)
I've been a subscriber for many years and I continue to be amazed with each new restoration! I'm pretty sure that I could do these sorts of restorations if I only had the German tools My Mechanics has! No really!
Vídeo muito satisfatório de se ver. Consegui ver do início ao fim. Parabéns por seu excelente trabalho!
I think the fixing & repairing of all the little hardware is my favorite part! You make things look so…artistically sound, I guess I’d call it.
I'd love to know what you did with this bell after restoring it. It seems you keep most of the useful items you restore for yourself, which I love. Did you replace your doorbell with this one? With it being as beautiful as you made it, I definitely would!
Awesome as usual 🤩 The idea with the note under the coil was nice 💯
Oh Wow, even Red Dead showed up! To each of you, what's been your favourite thing you've restored? (Or specific watch, in terms of RedDead)
Nice to hear that, thank you very much :-)
This took my breath away. The precision and the range of techniques were truly awe-inspiring. If I could have my time again I would definitely train to become an engineer.
Nice to hear that, thank you :-)
Respekt, Du machst richtig tolle Jobs 👍👍Es ist auf keinen Fall langweilig Dir zuzusehen
Parabéns pelo seu trabalho, você é muito detalhista seu trabalho é incrível na verdade o melhor restaurador que eu vi até hoje. Obrigado por compartilhar com todos nós esse trabalho lindo que você faz com tanto talento e dedicação.
Nós mecânicos, metalúrgicos, etc. Sabemos que é uma arte. Parabéns pelo canal!
I was actually yelling at the computer for you to ring the bell at the end, I thought you were going to leave us hanging lol! Great job, beautiful restoration! Simple and elegant. That brass bell and walnut are amazing. Thank you!!
Esse é uma dos meus vídeos favoritos de restauração, e além do mais, parabéns pela restauração!
The best restoration I have ever seen, super professional.
love watching these videos when i just need to relax and focus on something nice. i grew up in an old town and was often surrounded by antiques. it makes me feel like i’m reliving my childhood seeing these restorations.
I never thought a doorbell could be so beautiful to restore. All the precision with which you worked in detail is amazing! Congrats mate 👌 also, the walnut was a nice touch 😉 cheers 🍻
They are always very nice
Yes, though many parts needed to be replaced with new ones. If you go through this trouble restoring this, you could maybe sneak in a capacitor on the back side to eliminate the arcing and keep the spring contacts looking fresh for longer.
So nice to hear that, thank you
@daniel howard beauty 😂
Stunning restoration! Your work is so beautiful. Respecting of the original pieces. Absolutely love watching you work!
Something I love about these videos is how they showed how beautiful these things were back in their time. Like a lot of stuff from this time period is kind of crusty and rusty looking, like the brass bell was. After a while I kind of assumed everything just looked like that from poorer craftsmanship and less refined materials, aged or not. But after you polished and shined that bell up it makes you realize this would have been as stately and beautiful a piece as anything you'd buy from the Home Depot, etc. today. In a way your videos really help people reconnect with a bygone era with each restoration you do.
Nice to hear that, thank you very much :-)🙌🏻
It's amazing, so beautiful from accuracy of work to how looks your tools, workplace, all esthetic in general.
Thank you very much!
I wish there must be a mymechanics university to teach all such stuff
It's called Metallarbeiterschule Winterthur (MSW). I visited there when I was very young, more than 3 decades ago, and my mechanic's content often reminds me of that place.
This is just one of those channels where no matter how long it takes for the next upload even half a year at a time and youll still watch it straight away and be hungry for more content as soon as you've finished. The definition of craftsmanship in the dictionary should be a link to your channel
So glad to hear that, thank you 😁
@Vickie Bligh مرحبا
I agree. It's why I joined his Patreon (no this isn't an ad for it, really) because I kept wanting more content from him.
Bald & bankrupt is also like that with me (travel vlog, not restoration)
Beautiful work, sounds like a bell! Good for another 120 years 👍
Thanks, glad to hear that🙌🏻
Very impresssive ! I'd never know a doorbell restoration would be so interesting.
Thanks, I'm glad you like it :-)
I've discovered your channel recently and I really love it. It's very soothing to watch ^^I was wondering, what happens to all the metal scrap produced from machining ? Is it smelted into new steel bars ?
MM recycles all of the metal bits.
Your attention to details is unprecedented and amazing, I pay attention to details myself, but you are on another level, there is no a single thing I could point out that you have not already covered, it is extremely entertaining, educational and satisfying to watch your videos. Congrats, and best wishes from Serbia.
I’ve got to say. You were the first restoration channel that I ever subscribed to because it was clear that you were knowledgeable, you cared about the pieces you worked on, and you were VERY good at what you did. It was clear that “certain other” restoration channels saw this too and began to change their content to closely match yours after your initial success. Some of those channels after changing their format even ended up getting more subscribers to you and I thought that that was a shame. But you kept on released absolutely top notch content, improving your set up, and even expanded to have a second channel and now you have grown so much. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m really glad you have the success you have today and as a long time subscriber I look forward to every upload.
Yeah, almost every other restoration channel has upped their game thanks to this one. And like all imitations, they feel like copies at best.
Thank you very much for your kind words and your longterm support. So glad I have such great subscribers like you! Means a lot to me ;-)
I've never seen anything like this in my life. What talent, knowledge and patience he has to restore and create new parts.Amazing!
Glad you enjoyed it!
I love this video so much. The restoration was perfect! If we had your skills, there would be less things thrown away.
This is awesome! Reminds me of the antique doorbell at my great grandparents house.
Nice to hear that, thanks :-)
The "snap" of the rusty screws breaking free is pure therapy
I've only recently discovered your channel, but I love your attention to detail and the quality of work you do! It's nice to see someone put this much dedication into restoration!
Me encanta lo prolijo que eres !!! Excelente trabajo! !! Abrazos desde Uruguay
I love watching all of the equipment you have as much as your restorations. You have it all!Great video!
From Chile my sincere congratulations for the great work of art you have done. Spectacular
This was such a terrific restoration! The meticulous detail you put into each part is remarkable. Our entire household looks forward to each new video of yours. Well-done!
Thank you so much!
Watched this video start to finish with absolute amazement! The level of skill and craftsmanship this dude possesses is off the friggin scale!
Thank you so much for your fantastic video. Beautifully restored bell and careful attention to detail. Bravo. 👏👏👏
Truly outstanding work. I have watched this video several times, and each time I am frankly dumbfounded at the level of precision and professionalism at every step of the way. Craftsmanship like this is extinct now. It is a great reminder of what is possible. Thank you!
My gosh!, you did it again! Absolutely masterful! Well done, Sir, well done!
I love how every piece is treated like it's the most important piece. The detail in your restorations are unparalleled. Please continue the amazing work
Glad to hear that, thank you very much 😁
This is what sets this dude apart from all the other restoration you tube Channels out there. No one comes close imo
I've been watching your back catalogue and I have to commend you for being so thorough on your restorations. I don't think I have seen any other restorer going to the same level of finesse as you. Looking forward to more great postings, thank you.
Wow, thank you!🤗
Excelente trabajo, quedó precioso, muchas felicitaciones.
Honest question: Is there any tool or machine you don’t currently own but you wish you did? I’m always blown away how many unique and specific tools you have. Keep up the AMAZING work!
i think some tools are made just for purpose.
This is an absolute stunner of a restoration thanks for sharing 👍🏼🛎
I have watched every restoration My Mechanics has posted and for some reason this one is the most impressive to me. He really showed a vast amount of knowledge in so many different areas for just 1 little doorbell. Great video from start to finish.
The Postman Rings Twice. You have abilities which the average person is unaware of. For those of us who can follow your work (jigs included) we are in awe of a true Master. Outstanding video!
10:50 I always hated the smell of enamel burn, but was still doing so as this is the easiest and safest way to clean up wires. But these times are gone as modern wires can be stripped with a hot iron, you led up the insulated wire with the iron and during the process melted lead burns the enamel.
Your detailed work of restoration is pure perfection.
This may sound funny, but this actually has to be my favorite restoration you've done so far. I know it's just a doorbell, but everything that went into it was just absolutely fascinating. Well done!
Thank you guys so much for this 😁😁
He's a genius!
I was thinking exactly the same thing. Such a beautiful restoration, and so much care was given to each part.
I’m happy you get to do what you love and get paid for it. You are of incredible talent. I enjoyed watching this very much
Awesome video as usual!I have some questions :- Do you have more info on the tumbler (the build and also, what are those white beads ???)- Do you sometimes happen to re-use on a project the custom jigs you've designed for another one? If yes how do your sort all these jigs (date? type? size?...)?
So impressed. Very thought out and so many different skills involved. Great job man!
Thanks a ton!
Have been subbed on multiple accounts for a while and it's absolutely amazing to see the growth and new equipment over the years. Love the content, you are also an exceptionally skilled individual! Even the worst days can be made better by watching your videos
It really should be an object of pride to realize that the majority of restoration channels use your amazing format as a guide to great restorations. I am an old man and it is so amazing to see items from my generation (and older) restored and preserved instead of destroyed. Thank you for everything you stand for and all you have done in this revolution to preserve relics of the past. I wish you good health, happiness and all the very best wishes to you and your families!
Not to be blunt, but channels like hand tool rescue came up with this format years before my mechanics did. Doesn't mean this is a bad channel, but the format is a clear copy.
Thank you very much Wesley for your nice comment. Really appreciated. All the best for you too!
This was your best one ever. Pure poetry watching you work.
What an interesting restoration project. I can't believe how much work it must have taken to rebuild and rewind those wire-bound windings. I would have loved to see you make an acrylic box to cover the components so you can still see them.
I appreciate your oppinion, thanks for watching :-)
Master of your craft! By far the best restorer of this type on Clip-Share
one of your best ones yet, incredible attention to detail and display of different methods and techniques!
Genuinely. I love how you also keep your mistakes in. You show painting over the circuit, and finding the problem to fix it. It’s really lovely and I’m sure will help others to troubleshoot in the future.
@my mechanics I was wondering if just tapping the two threads again to remove the paint would have been enough to complete the circuit?
I was about to make the same comment in. Showing the error at the end was fantastic, I love the honesty
@Autisticus Spasticus lo reemplazó por uno nuevo
@Autisticus Spasticus You didn't watch the video carefully
This project is a prime example of the outstanding work you do, and the filming and editing is top notch. The disassembly, renewal and reassembly are fascinating and calming and, best of all, the soundtrack is the work itself.
Really beautiful craftsmanship, you sir is extremely good in your job, it was an excellent work that became an amazing piece of art.
9:00 вауу спасибо, я так переживал что ты выкинешь этот фрагмент газеты , в душе думал вот бы отдельно сохранить где нибудь, был очень удивлён что так кой стенд для этого сделал 😍😍😍😍
11:47 😀😀да надеюсь через 112 лет вашу. Бумажку тоже так же ламинируют
Your camera work and editing is as precise as your restoration precision is. Love it !
I can only imagine how proud the person who made the original doorbell would be to see it as a true gem, a piece of art. Congratulations on the work.
Its story would be cool to know indeed
It was probably mass produced and sold at Sears. Still cool tho.
Очень качественная работа! Немного обидно что не оказалось провода в оригинальной шёлковой изоляции...
I love how you take us through every individual piece. It not only makes this feel more authentic but I just love seeing the process of it allgreat work!
Thoroughly enjoyed watching this. Great skills involved in this video.
Какая прекрасная вещь получилась! БРАВО! Это настоящая реставрация. Заменены только действительно негодные детали. Остальное отремонтировано с большой любовью и вниманием. Спасибо за доставленное удовольствие от наблюдения за работой МАСТЕРА!
*Blasting it with with glass balls so hard it removes the top layer of metal*Yes… certainly lots of care…
Дерьмо. Утрачена аутентичность, похоже на новодел.
