Casting Big Bells!

It is rare nowadays to get an order for a really large bell, although we have cast one five tonner within the last year. Over the years many large bells have been cast, and we still retain the ability to cast more if orders are placed. The mould is built up from a base plate, and the photo shows the largest one we own – this one would cope with a twenty tonner if the order came! It’s massive, and dwarfs one of our foundry man, Matt, who is 6′ tall!
