Replaced the 3lb 5oz chromed ex police or fire engine bell today with a heavier 5ib 15 oz brass bell which came in the same box from Jim Currin. This bell is a much nicer more strident note and is almost identical in tone. Looks right and sounds nicer. Was worried it was a little too high in note but now hung and rung seems to fit in well. Still looking for a treble to complete the eight but nearly there after twenty years since starting.
