We have a problem at Edgbaston, it feels like the front three swing
at a different speed than the back five.
Last night we had a broken rope so I went up to fix it and noticed
that the third had a second garter hole higher up on the wheel.
Looking at them both I cannot tell which one was the original
Taylor's garter hole and which one had been cut since installation.
I put the rope through the other garter hole as an experiment and now
the bell has much less handstroke, it seems to be easier to ring and
fits in with the back ones now.
Tonight I'll investigate the trebles, (couldn't do it last night as
they were up) and if they have two garter holes as I suspect they
have, I'll thread the rope through the higher one giving the trebles
We're ringing a peal tonight so it'd be interesting to see the
Will Taylor's know the original positions of the garter holes?
