Re: Re: C & N iron bells
Father: Your church’s Blymyer bell doesn’t have it’s original support stands and braces, wood wheel, and tolling hammer. It’s possible it was acquired second-hand when the church was built and those parts were already missing. Old church records might indicate the bell’s source. Perhaps it’s feasible to install a longer arm. That would lessen the pull required to get the bell swinging. There’s information on Blymyer (Cincinnati Bell Co) in this forum and other internet sites. Just Google Blymyer bell.
