That is a damn good idea and so simple!

I've been playing around with the bell fixed to the upper wheel, so that the bell swings round toards the bottom of the pit, it hits a pivoted clapper-more trouble than its worth.

The marble and inner tube idea sounds great- I've got plenty of old inner tubes, I will get cracking once I acuire some marbles.
