Covert Ironworks



My father-in-law's foundry Covert Ironworks cast all of the new bells on El Camino Real throughout California. The bells are actually cast in a "pig iron", so they thud, rather than ring.
We have a smaller bell (above) from the Santa Barbara Mission bell tower. Our bell is made from a ductile cast iron, and has a booming ring.
