And this in itself smacks of some of the more modern day rants we here from
e.g. Jim Phillips ... "the tuning of bells has become worse since foundries
stopped using forks ... forks are the only way to properly tune bells". He
then goes on to talk about SG clappers!

Good stuff this! It reminds me of the letter written by Thomas Bond, the
Burford bellfounder, to the Ringing World in 1926 (p.360). On tuning, Bond
wrote "I believe the whole system [the five-toned principle] is a farce and
nonsense, and I believe the best results are had, only, from practical
experience on the part of the bell founder"
