I've been looking for a real triangle dinner bell. One that isn't fancy, but rings true. I've found that they are purely decorative and "clank", or just go "ting" when you hit them. We have my wife's grandpa's bell. You hit it and it rings and hums. You can literally feel the sound resonate from it. Just having a hard time finding them.

If you reenact, where do you but yours at?

e-bay. Size may determine the tone. Mine is for show more than actual use so it is on the smaller size.

Ask the folks at Chuck Wagon supply, they may have what you need or know someone that does.

I make my own out of 1/2 inch iron rod simple to heat with torch and bend leaving ends open, make "clanger" out of 3/8 rod with a eye bent in one end. Found that they clank if held by metal, rings if held by string. Hope this helps.

I do have a lead on a bell.

Here's the deal, their type of metal and how it's tempered does affect sound. Yes, you want a soft material holding bell, usually leather on most old ones over seen. I have two metal ones, and they are terrible. Two different diameters. The one I love, my wife's grandpa's bell, rings beautifully. It's same size and diameter as one other bell I have. Night and day difference between the sound on them. Maybe it's the pitting on grandpa's bell that makes it ring that well lol.

I've made a couple out of 5/8 rebar, cold bent approximately 12 each side hang from a strip of leather. They ring nicely. Haven't heard a bad one yet this way.

Our kids got us one from Lodge. Basically cold rolled steel rod with a similar "ringer". All on leather straps. It makes a heck of a racket inside the house.
