Hi All

Does the (intentional?) malapropism in Andrew's email header/title say it all ... accent on 'minimum' ?

Is the bell to be vertically 'perforated' (like previous Czechoslovakian examples), to get it to ring at all? 

Andrew: please advise exact alloy content by individual element percentages %, at your convenience, & we'll talk further. Thanks - very interesting!

We are in the process of making a 60” diameter bell – how exciting I hear you cry – however it is to be cast in aluminium (aloominum for foreign correspondents) as it is for display rather than hearing.
I can’t find any fact or figures about aluminium bells to say whether this is the largest – anyone out there know?
