springpads and clapper covering felts as needed. All bells
are adjusted for consistent playing response

Machine Cleaning and Polishing for
of the difficulty in removing and replacing the leather handles and
caps, most European handbells only receive professional machine cleaning
of the castings about every 40 years when the handles have worn out
and require replacement. The casting, however, would actually benefit
from machine cleaning about every 6 to 10 years. I have developed
special equipment that allows me to machine clean the castings inside
and out, without removing the handles. All clappers are also polished to a fine jeweler's lustre.
|| After cleaning, each bell is individually sealed in plastic wrapping,
and case interiors are vacuumed. Where applicable, case exteriors
will also be treated with protectant.
