      Hello, this is my first post. Im looking at a 13 inch locomotive bell for sale and see an interesting tab on the inside. Is it a repair? Would it affect the sound? Owner says its from casting. I sure want another bell but don’t want to get taken advantage of.
      Thanks for looking!

      I’ve seen many a locomotive bell and owned a few too, but this is a new one. Personally, I would think that you’re right in not trusting it.

      I think it would have to affect the sound of the bell when rung.

      Almost certainly, this would have to affect it’s “voice’. I would not accept it.
