Made in Florida 

Posted 7/16/2010 2:10:48 PM

It was marketed as the "Swinette". Notice how it resembles the back end of a pig. Squeezing the lever changed the tension of the string. Hard to play a recognizable song on it! Old fellow who sold it to me, later mailed me the plans. Said he was near 90, and wanted to pass along the process to somebody younger. But, sadly, I never made one.

Sadly, there were no wild monkeys involved.
