Looking for Bell Mount

We have a nice 6" chrome bell that looks to be original ('67) but there is no mounting bracket to be found which is very annoying. I have searched online and asked at west marine but no joy. does anyone know where one might be found?

the bell is in this style and all the feet I have looked at seem to be the same size. I just can't find anyone to sell just the mount.

Can we assume this this photo is not the particular bell but one like it, minus the bracket in the picture?

Sounds like a good excuse to hit your yacht surplus shop.

All I need is the mount.

I have been scrounging the swap meets and the boating consignment shops. I even asked at west marine. I have googled and searched. and come up with nuttin...

please don't hit me, but.. I disposed of one no so long ago. Aside from that, "good thing come from those who wait".

Someone gave me one that they picked up in a tourist gift shop.

I feel the love. Now go to sleep and ream of discarded bells and their brackets. I'm going to have lunch (14 hr diff between us) and enjoy the thought of a new friend in my life.

While I no longer have any information on the vendor, 8-9 years ago I was able to obtain a slot mount from one of West Marine's vendors of Bell's and other Brass works. The name was given to me by one of West's customer service people and I was able to track them down. Several weeks after sending a letter of inquiry, the mount arrived free of charge by return mail. A little grinding and the thing worked perfectly, and allows us to move the bell from it's position on the bulkhead in the Salon to the second mount on the binnacle in the cockpit for use in fog (tho' frankly, we've never needed it). You might give West a call or simply visit one of their stores to see if the maker's name is on the packaging.

FWIW...
