That's precisely what I'm wanting to know. G&J says diameter is 5 7/8 inches, actual outside measurement, as measured by my informant - 7 inches. The former measurement being the inside.

  Hoe very odd, Hoe on earth can you sensibly determine an inside diameter at the lip the shape being a curve?
  sounds an implaudable explanation.

    My attention has been drawn to the fact that there may be two ways of measuring a bell's diameter. Bell No.7 of the G&J Riverside Carillon, weighing only 15lbs, has been measured as 7" (no typo error)on the outside (lip to lip)but in the G&J Tuning Books it is given as 5 7/8". The measurements have been checked by my informer and shows the smaller measurement to be that of the INSIDE of the bell. What of the other bells here, I wonder?

    Is this the usual practice of Cyril or may be anyone else?
