I'm a Lady with power tools, also Two of us! yay!
KI4GOT----no, I didnt get you 2 confused. Still waiting for you to use those power tools. The next few pics is for those who funds are tight. I paid 2 bucks for the hinges,everything else was free.

Here, I zoomed in to show the trigger wire position after the bird has passed through.
