About a month ago I enquired about "kinetic bell pushes". The resulting
discussion here in D-I-Y resulted in me being convinced to try
re-connecting the house's old wired bell system. I've since looked at
doing that and it looks like it might be possible. So ...
Re-connection will entail running an extension of the old wire to the
outside of the porch (built long after the old bell was installed).
I seem to remember seeing words of caution, in here, about drilling
through the frame of a uPVC construction: any words of wisdom on that
for me, please?
(I realise that there is a steel core to this uPVC. Also, the hole I
drill will be in the left hand upright, on which the door is hung -- not
that I expect that a 5mm hole for bellwire will have an effect on that,
but that location may have a bearing on the steel to be expected.)
