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 above.
The flags represent the Army, Navy , Airforce,
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.
