Cheap bells?

Anyone know of anybody that still sells old-style electric doorbells in the UK? Or got one knocking around and not in use? When I say "old-style" I mean the type that has an EXTERNAL hammer and some coils in a box, something like the one below - most modern designs save space by fitting the works inside the dome of the bell, inside a plastic housing which makes it more or less impossible to see the mechanism working.

One of the hits on Google images was someone selling a kit to build one as a science experiment, but it doesn't look very robust - I want two or three that'll survive being used by kids.
