    This bell accidentally hit the floor and broke into 6 pieces.
    I could make the pieces fit back, as they were clean breaks.
    How can I best put all these pieces back together?
    Thanks,

    Carlos

    If it is for decorative purposes only you can use glue, like an epoxide. I don't think that there is a repair method that will make the bell sound nice again. Better to check ebay for a possible replacement.

    I feel your bell is a "Humpty Dumpty" and needs to be replaced.
    That is too bad.

    The new ones don't sound that good and nothing is going to sound just like the old one. Sorry ... Willie X
