    Other day successfully cast my first brass bell. It is 5 inches in diameter. Thicker at mouth and thinner up sides. Sounds good. I plan to cast a larger one…

    That’s a great project, well done.
    Only last week, we were privileged to visit Royal Eijsbouts bell foundry located in Asten, Netherlands.
    We witnessed the casting of a tuned bell for Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
    It’s an inspiring thing to see and I wish you good luck with your future casting.

    Thanks you very much. I will keep you informed of new castings. My bell is 5 inches and now is mounted on a porch post by the steps.
