I bought a bell today at the auction. A big bell.
Those deck boards under it are standard 1X6 deck boards (5.5 inches wide), so that bell should be 12" at the widest point. Weighs about 30 lbs. I don't know where I'm going to mount it yet, but certainly somewhere in the back yard.
I've always wanted a big bell and now I can scratch that off the list. I wonder what the neighbors will think when the grandkids ring it?
