The standard ones we use for the smaller bells are about £55 per pair, those for the larger are up to about £110 per pair. I think WBF use the same spec bearings as us, so this should be about right.

We are trying to raise money to rehang the ring of 10 at Beccles, Suffolk, on ball bearings. One of the things suggested for raising money was "Buy a Bearing". Could somebody either give me an indication or point me in the right direction for finding out the price of ball races used for such a job. The bells range in weight between 6cwt and 25cwt. Obviously the cases and labour will add more expense but I would just like to know the basic price of one bearing.
