It's like the carpenter who could not order a piece of wood over 3ft long so he ordered a piece 2ft 14inches.

  Thanks to all for their help with this, on and off list. Steve Ivin 
  points out that we have already discussed the sizes of the Westminster 
  quarters, on April 22 2002 - David Cawley gave the sizes then. I hope 
  David and George will forgive me for pointing out some discrepancies in 
  the data supplied, as follows:

  Great Bede: DLC 6' 5 1/2", GAD 6' 10 1/2"
  Westminster Q2: DLC 2002 4' 0", DLC 2008 3' 8 1/16".

  Perhaps these bells are not round! :-)

  Also, regarding Alan's weight for the Wanamaker bell, 310-1-23 must be 
  the correct reading as 28lbs = 1qtr. I have seen the figure of 310-1-28 
  in more than one place, it is a common mis-reading. For clarity, I 
  assume this is the weight of the 1923 bell which no longer exists.
