Would 5 7/8" be the strike diameter at the thickest part of the sound bow? would your informant be able to check this?

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?
