      Can anyone help me on the yoke of a C S Bell #20? When the bell was removed from wherever they cut the ends that fit in the uprights. My bell has a wheel that fits over the ends and onto a square shank. The remainder would protrude through and onto the uprights. There is a flange that bolts to the wheel so the wheel can be removed from the shank. If anyone has a blueprint or designs or yoke please feel free to contact me at tweetheart2@earthlink.net or 910-286-1577 i live in North Carolina. Thanks!

      Doty6035,

      I have spoken with the nice man from Prindle Station about these bells. Unless something has changed, he cannot help you except for information. They make the smaller bells; this one is over 150 pounds with the base and is quite substantial in size. He (the man at Prindle) indicated when I spoke with him that the patterns for these bells were destroyed by fire over 50 years ago.

      Terrence,

      I have the same bell in great condition although I know from emailing you in the past that yours is older than mine. I can help with drawings and pictures if they will help, but I am afraid I do not have any suggestions about where to have the bell repaired. I have included the pictures I took when my bell was sandblasted 2 years ago. They are a bit fuzzy; I can take new ones if needed. It shows the measuring tape stretched from end to end across the yoke. ABout 27″ in total.

      A good local welding shop can weld iron rods on the spots where they were sawed off. I cant understand why someone would cut them off in the first place. Maybe they did not want a swinging bell. Strange indeed.
