Ball Chain Gear

Ball-Chain-Gear Tree-with-Ball-Chain-Gear

I found 3 of these brass ball chain gears at an estate sale and have put the first one to use.  I took it into Winks Hardware where they have help that knows the answer to everything hardware and the gear created quite a stir.  No one had ever seen on before.  As you can see the brass #6 ball chain seats perfectly in the gear.  I really like the gear being integral with the tree.
