Bell supports for the Basilica St. Lorenz in Kempten
2 employees replaced the old bell supports with 5 new wooden yokes with bearings and bearing plates for 5 of the 7 bells in the St. Lorenz Basilica in Kempten. The yokes of bell 1 and 3 were renewed in 2003.
The bells are first lowered and the old bell supports are dismantled.
The new bell supports are lifted through the sound openings into the belfry by a crane.
The 5 new wooden bell supports with the new bell support straps are fitted exactly.
The bearing plates are fitted, before the bells are pulled up and set at the bell supports by a block and tackle.
