Was the fact known (and pointed out to the authorities) that the 
bell was a poor casting before/during tuning?
Does the fact that it is a poor casting mean it will need to be 
turned again in another twenty odd years or is it a case of suck it 
and see, and has the bell been overclappered in the past?
