I got to play with a Floyd rose the other day and it was incredible. I need to be able to build some kind of tremolo bridges.  I know I could buy them, but I know I don't have to explain why I want a way to make them. I've seen a few whammy bars on boxes, but they usually seem to just look cool.  Any and all ideas welcome; I'm not scared of failed experiments.

I did one with a rat trap, worked out great

I have a bunch of those laying around.  I'll mess with them.

I am working on a trem design right now that should be in production very soon....

Do tell. Unless it's secret.
