Its pretty noisy - I tried it for "educational purposes" once on a bell about to meet its maker. There appear to be two pre requisites 1) the arms of a blacksmith 2) deafness - its not necessary in the applicant but comes fairly soon with the job.

Hmm - a deaf bell tuner............he would need a friend that knows sign language.

A great many early bells have been lost in this way’. Retuning church
bells, he adds, ‘is not too great a problem if historical methods are

Is there anyone skilled in chip-tuning?
