Finishing up a #4 Dancer sleigh bell. I hope the sound come through okay. I put a 1/2” jinglet inside this one for a medium tone. When I get up to the #8 Donder and Blitzen bells I’ll use the 3/4” jinglet. I can’t wait to get them all lined up on a leather together. That’s still a few weeks away but I’ll post it when I’m there!

I thought I had left feedback on this already...anyway, the ring sounds pretty good and thats on video it most likely even better in real time as it were.

I love the craftsmanship, excellent :)

Thank you, Rob. They all have a wonderful timbre and I’ll post a video once I get them all assembled.

I am doing a few “orders” for this season. I put a few “feeler posts” out on FB, just to gauge the interest. The response was very encouraging. I’ve since pulled those posts and I’m working on getting the orders I accepted done by November. It’s nothing official, but I have purchased a few domain names for a potential webpage. I’m still learning and getting the timing/temps down to a consistent process. Of course the biggest problem is my regular job. I’m not retired…yet…and I’m working more than full-time right now with the railroad. They have a huge manpower shortage so I never seem to have the time to get in the shop. The only upside to working so much is that it gives me a lot of time, designing and wax work, while I’m sitting in a hotel room waiting for my call to return home.
