I recommend WAXOYL, as used to excellent effect on the rehung sdteel five at Thornborough some years ago by E&S.

  I understand that a proprietary car anti-rust material call 'Waxoyl' has been used successfully, an equivalent was used on the (metal) frame at Egginton Derbys which did an excellent job.

  Again further details including original location, if known, would be useful for my index of NV bells (if it is by them).

    Hi - I am not in a position to tell you what you might coat the bell with.

    What I would be keen to know is if your bell was made by Naylor Vickers. If so it will have a serial number on it that will probably be quite difficult to decipher. 

    If it is possible to say what the number is can you let me know. Also the year of manufacture, the diameter and the weght if known.
