We are able to supply brand new SG iron clappers and crown staples to our own specifications. The clappers have a big impact on the quality of the ring and can be something forgotten about by many ringers.
Where possible, old clappers can be fully refurbished. Old wrought iron clappers are twist turned to present a new wear face. Welding and profiling is not something undertaken by us.
Composite clappers are becoming increasingly popular in big bells and bells that go up wrong. Not only do they improve the ability to get a bell up right, they also improve the sound, and the handling of the bell. Our composite clapper shafts are made from HDPE, an engineering plastic with fantastic properties for clappers. We do not use timber shaft as standard, but these can be made upon request.

We only use High quality self aligning bearings and fixings. Our bearings are fixed to the gudgeon by means of a tapered sleeve and lock nut and are mounted in split plumber block housings.
Our brands include SKF, RHP, Dodge, and SAF.
Existing bearings can be overhauled, degreased, ultra sonic cleaned, and inspected where appropriate.
Our pulley boxes are made from either hardwood or marine grade plywood.
The rollers are either made from turned HDPE, or 3D printed using a special, high wearing polymer.
All pulleys run on sealed for life ball races.
