If you want a rope wheel for your bell, consider either a cast steel or cast aluminum one from Todd Lower (lowerbells.com). I just finished putting his largest cast steel wheel on an 36″ bronze bell. If I was doing it again, I would use the cast aluminum one instead just because of the weight. They look the same, but the steel one weighed 80 lbs making it a two man job. I don’t know how much the aluminum wheel weights, but it’s got to be less. Of course, I don’t have the world’s best back, so perhaps I am too sensitive about weight. — Neil Goeppinger
