McShane takes your bell through a seven-step process of being cleaned of all dirt and toxic Petina. The bell then goes through several steps of being buffed to a beautiful luster.
Besides cleaning and polishing of bells to look new again, we also rebuild complete frame works for all bells. These parts include new stands, steel wheels, yokes and support timbers. All work can be performed on site if need.
Additionally, all metal parts are cleaned and then their surface is painted to accent the bell's appearance.
The final step of the refurbishing is having the bell polished to look new again. The bell is also clear-coated to protect its new beautiful finish.
This procedure is great for all re-dedications of bells, in the purchase of used bells or for display purposes.
McShane has performed this refurbishing for court houses, fire houses and churches all across the country.
