      I have a Frederick Town #7, but I am missing the brackets. If anyone can point me to a pair of brackets, I would greatly appreciate it.

      Richard, original brackets are the proverbial “needle…”
      Brosamer’s Bells used to sell similar very ornate repos, but haven’t noticed them on their site.
      Try contacting them.
      They looked like these:

      Here’s a source at ebay for reproductions.
      Notice the lack of the brace connection, a flat spot with a bolt hole, in the center of the stand, and no brace, of course.

      Purchased a set, but failed to ask dimensions. These are 12″ from base to seat which could be close for a #7!
      Don’t currently have originals for comparison… but these will function with proper mounting.
