Guiding bell into cradle or yoke

2013-07-30 - ACPC, 158 Col. Casey Drive, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Junior Edrington of the Adair County School's Maintenance Department, left and Larry Johnson guided the bell onto it's yoke, or cradle. To raise the bell, one scissors lift had to be replaced because it's height would not allow full extension. The final maneuver was the genius of Mark Parnell, who provided the protocol of raising the bell above the level of the platform while the pipe from which it is suspended was located on the scissors truck near the front of the cage, forward in the photo, then, once elevation was reached, rolling the pipe forward, slowly until the bell was exactly over the cradle, then lowering the scissors lift until it was securely in place. The protocol was executed perfectly.
