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.
