Hey!

Look at this entry of Pillage the Village Contest.
Exotrator made a great bell in his entry.

As it's not mine, maybe ask to him if you could use it.

If you always do what you always did, you always get what you always got.

Looking at it, I'd say the bottom is a yellow dish (utensil type, not radar) turned upside down. The body of the bell is a round 2 x 2 x 1 2/3 with dome top. Holding those together, it looks right.

Posted Image + Posted Image + magic = Bell

In this case, the magic is required to attach those parts together. I have no idea how this is done as the dome doesn't have any attachment point inside and all the ones I have feature a top stud that you can't put a bar through. Perhaps the old ones are hollow studs, which would make it easy. Otherwise, I don't know. :wacko:

If you figure it out, let us know! :thumbup:

According to ImperialShadows, it seems to be these two pieces.
I had them into my hands but I can't figure how this bell is done !

I think the magic is this :

Put a jumperbrick underneath and a trans-clear round on it. Just whisk the plate on there , make the rest of the bell and put it in place.

I think that the 1x1 round piece presses up, while the bar holds it al in place from above..

Just an Idea ;)

Must be like that, I see no other way.
If I find the parts (which I own), I might end up making one bell myself.
It is a great bell after all.

It'd be really nice if they made that dome piece in gold.

This is very interesting! Nice job on showing us!

A golden dish is also in the Medieval Market Village.

A silver belville bucket is a nice bell too.

Hope this might help.

Thats a very innovative idea. I never would have been able to figure that out by just looking at it.  :sceptic:
