 Good stuff, any idea roughly the bell will weigh? I'd guess also the pitch is going to be some what higher than a bell metal bell of the same size, my experience with aluminium patterns for bells is that they are about a perfect fourth higher should that be so with this one?

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