Bell Maintainence


We begin our restoration of a bell by using a wire brush to remove any loose paint or rust particles that may have built up on the bell. You could sandblast the bell if it is needed.  After this cleaning we spray paint the bell with a thin coat of rustoleum primer to seal the surface.  Finally, the bell is given a brush coat of good grade machinery enamel.  We allow the paint to dry and the bell is ready. We paint our bells in the traditional color, black; but, we have seen many paint colors used on C.S. Bell bells. 
Another method would be to protect the clean metal surface with a coat of WD-40.  This would maintain the appearance of the  metal and still protect it; however, a coat of WD-40 would need to be reapplied every year.
