Antique Cast Iron Bell

The antique cast iron bell (see photo below) was donated to SDF from lifelong friend of Larry and Mary Collette’s, Ben and Robin Cloetens. The bell required a total rebuild and friends of Special Dreams Farm jumped in to help.

Included is:

  • Keith Ruppel of Hoyt, Brumm and Link, Ferndale, MI mechanical contractors that fabricated the new mounting yoke.
  • Adam & Nazih Hussein owners of AAA Sandblasting and A-1 Metal Coatings, Fraser, MI glass blasted and powder coated all the components.
  • Moritz Cuna owner of K&K Machine Tool, Harrison Township, that reworked the old handle.

All work was done no charge for Special Dreams Farm. Our farmers already enjoy the strong sound of this classic bell.
