List members may recall Richard Offen's interesting description a while 
ago of the procedure used by Whitechapel up to the 1920s to tune strike 
notes against forks.

Does anyone have first-hand (or at least reliable) knowledge of how 
Taylors did their stretch tuning in the 1950s and 1960s? The procedure 
might give clues as to how they (i.e. Paul Taylor) decided how much to 
stretch a peal of bells.
