[Bell Historians] Canon removal and faculties

Since you asked so nicely....

The timber headstock that we have just taken off Mold treble (JT 1880's)
including gudgeon boxes weighs 0-1-16. The new cast iron canon retaining
headstock weighs 0-3-0.

I think the larger the wooden headstock the more relatively heavy it
will become to its cast counterpart.

Hope this helps and can we talk about something else now, please!

Weight is going to depend on the design is it not?
Wood is the lighter material.

I would guess that there is quite a variation here, some relativly
some not.

Perhaps a headstock design and manufacture operative could advise and
put us 
out of our misery?
