Thanks Andrew, nice try!    I do know where there is a suitable machine 
in Perth ...could also do the job myself!   

Trouble is the trebles would end up even thinner than they are now and 
the problems involved in getting them out (concrete floor below the 
bells with no trap and a chancel organ on the first floor) make it a 
not very tempting propect.

Guess I'll just have to warn my dentist that I'll continue to grind my 
teeth every time I ring at St Georges!

Tuning aside, you know you are always welcome in Perth.
