BELLS No. 64

Bell No. 64D Bell No. 64E Bell No. 64F

Magneto bell (AC).  The bells above are similar to the A, B and C variants, but with cowl and gasket issued separately for assembling locally, if required.

Used Internally or externally and has 1000 ohm bell ringers.

The base plate is universal and as made so that any of the different sized gongs can be fitted.  Bell No's 64D, 64E and 64F were supplied without the Cowl, Bell No. 64 and Gaskets Bell No. 64 and it is thought that the GPO dropped the 64A, 64B and 64C indoor versions and just supplied the 64D, 64E and 64F versions fitted with the gasket, whilst the cowl could be ordered separately.

Adjustment of the circular gongs is by rotation of the gongs, whilst adjustment of the Cow gongs is by adjustment of the gong support pillars.
