"The Bell Limber" - Cleburne, Texas
|The Bell Limber
Here is something different!
A potential customer came to me asking if I would be
interested in a unique project.
He had a 120 year old bronze bell that came out of a
college somewhere in Central Texas.
He is extremely patriotic and wanted to ring the bell in
honor of our military forces. The problem was he didn’t
have a way to pull it in parades.
The bell is 18” tall and weighs 105 lbs.
He wanted to mount it somehow on a cannon carriage.
I thought about it a day and suggested that it might be
better suited mounted on a modified cannon limber.
I did a rough drawing of what I had in mind and he liked it.
The end product turned out nice.
It can easily be pulled by two people or a handy trailer
hitch coupler can be mounted and then the limber could be
pulled by a four wheeler or even a golf cart.
The top rail supports the bell underneath and six flags
The flags represent the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines,
MIA’s and an American flag.
His intention is to pull it in parades and ring the bell once
for every flag.
I was honored to help with this project.
