Whilst on that slightly sore point, after the tenor was welded I checked its 
notes, assuming they may have altered and found they had not. I was 
astonished to find that it had gone up by about 20 cents when the bells were pitched 
for the recent proposals for augmentation. I haven't experienced this with 
any old bells that have been welded.

I was amazed that a small G&J bell that we rehung recently, changed in pitch 
when the bell was bolted to its stock (with fibre pad between). The prime 
rose around 10Hertz!
