How-To: Build a RSS-Reading Telegraph Sounder

The amazing Jake von Slatt has struck again. This time, ye olde Steampunk Workshop has cranked out a lovely brass telegraph sounder that taps out the content from RSS feeds in Morse Code. Jake actually made two, the brass model, built on a traditional design, and a second, more whimsical one, cut from cast aluminum (for “Airship Duty”).

One of the things I like about Jake’s pieces is that he includes video tutorials that can be applied outside of the specific project he’s building. For this project, he covers using a Tap and Die Set and how to wind an induction coil using an electric drill.
