THIS AIN'T IT.

This is one of my stupider ideas. My version of a Renaissance era mouse trap. Of course, I had to improve it, to make it ultra high capacity. I think the most mice at one time ever was 2

But, since i tripped across a photo of it, I thought I'd share.

It "works" thus:
  • mouse sees/smells bait in hole behind the string that holds the spring
  • mouse chews through string
  • spring actuates thin wire loop
  • mouse is snared by loop

I know, I know, it looks like a fine piece of furniture. In reality, that is just a coincidence.

True.

I was going to take up knitting, but I'm not allowed to have pointy objects.
