I wondered whether the 'tuning marks' were too uneven / bumpy to to be
machine tuning but I'm only aware of chip tuning etc. which tends to
give a rough surface.
Could the mould be 'tuned' to give the final required bell shape -
implies it was intentional & would be repeated by Rudhall?
Dove already lists the frame as G&J based on info from Chris P.
Bells News 1894 / 1898 etc has a G&J adverts (bottom left of first page
of issues) which states Makers of Bells At & lists Tetbury! I assume
they are still by Rudhall & that G&J adverts were not accurate?
