In fact, surely the weights of 8,9,10,11 aren't going to be correct any more 
either. Removal of the cast-in staple and drilling of a centre hole will 
have reduced the weight by a noticeable amount, specially with the larger 
bells. How many pounds would this remove from a bell as large as the 11th?
