OT Metal question source/data *PIC*

Gary Smyth
Off topic and metal, wall mount with wood backing. Is there a way to estimate a no-sag welded/riveted weight limit data table on a right angle wrought iron bracket with and without scroll braces? I’m useless at trig and what I was able to find in my engineers handbook doesn’t exactly deal with, say, ¼ to ½ bar/flat stock in small lengths. I want to fabricate and hang a temple style cylinder bell near the main doorway. Finished weight is approaching 27 (8" diameter bell) lbs. Neighbors and USpost and FedEx will have a better chance of me responding than a {frustrating) sometimes operating transformer doorbell – especially if I’m away from the house.
I have the components, just need to wait till weather breaks a bit.
