Come on Richard,Warner's were not the only foundry to 'cast in granite'. 
Emmanuel,Plymouth (21-2-12 in E-flat) are an excellent original Warner
eight.  Warner's were innovators on their day - aluminium headstocks and
did those wonderful 'gimbal' bearings at York Minster ever work?  It is
time we saw a history book on the Warner Foundry.
