Well that's interesting Charles. I think that the way ahead for you
in this matter is clear. What you need to do to convince us simple
bell ringers about the merits of your advanced tuning ideas is
commission a ring of tower bells and have them cast and tuned to your
own (or is it the late Mr Harrison's?) specifications.
If you have the resources to make a bid for a bell foundry in
administration, then I feel confident that you could raise the
finance to produce and hang a modest ring of bells from a foundry
that is still operating (I believe there is one in the East End of
London somewhere). If your bells are a success, then you will, of
course, convert the entire Ringing Exercise almost overnight ...
Then we will all be clamouring to have our existing bells either
re-tuned or re-cast to your specifications. There should consequently
be enough work to keep two (or maybe even more) bell foundries going
in the UK for many years to come.
How about it?
Will you put your money where your mouth is?
