Welcome to the ABA! › Bell Talk Forums › Small Bells › I have an 8 inch mechanical bell what’s it for?
There is lever you push down and an arm comes down and hits the bell- is it an old firehouse or drawbridge bell? I have a picture of it if anyone would like to see it to help me find out what it is.

It sounds like a trip gong. They were used for everything from boxing matches to starting and stopping Sunday school. If you want to send me a picture, I’ll tell you if that is what it is. — Neil
