New upper boss for the treble

The treble's new upper boss, waiting while the sealant cures. The white PVC pipe is aligning it with the hole in the floor; once the sealant cures, the treble's rope will be threaded back down through it to the ringing chamber.

The treble received its new upper rope boss this afternoon.

Three of our bells’ upper rope bosses split at some point, and the treble′s is the second to be replaced (the 2’s was replaced on Nov 15).  The 5’s is next.

The replacements are red oak, ¾” finished thickness, rounded and smoothed to prevent rope wear, and bedded about ¼” off the floor on silicone sealant to keep them dry and ventilated.

Update:  The 5’s upper boss was replaced on Jan 27.
