Didn't Hayward Mills cast a light ring of eight for Ullingswick which were 
never installed?

Yes - cast somewhere in Stoke on Trent I believe. 
We (i.e. Richard Bowditch and Myself) have recently cast 2 small octaves for 
personal use - to G&J style profiles (My tenor weighs 2-0-11 in F# - 22" 
dia). We have used the CO2 sand moulding method which has produced a superb 
finish - this method may throw up problems if we try bigger bells due to core 
shrinkage rates etc. 
We are currently working on a set of patterns to make production easier and 
Just bought a 6.5 ton vertical borer too - tuning starts in the next few
