I look forward to the answers on this one, its
an excellent subject for a book.
I am aware that lost wax is used and that some
foundries do not tune.
This is fascinating, "All India" bell founding

Subject: [Bell Historians] Historical
differences between long-standing bell
I have long wondered about the history some of
the long-standing bell foundries that still
exist today. Marinelli since 1040, John Taylor
since the mid 1500's, Whitechapel since 1570,
Petit & Fritsen from 1660 and Eijsbouts from
1872. There are probably more.
I wonder how they compare in reputation, size,
market focus, quality of product, quality of
service, pricing, how they survived the world
wars, etc. I would appreciate anyone's insight
on these venerable companies. Thanks.
